    BOEHNER asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Mr. BOEHNER. Mr. Speaker, our message in the House has been pretty clear. We want to reopen our government and provide fairness to all Americans under the President's health care law.

    This law had a big rollout last week. It has been called an ``inexcusable mess,'' a ``rolling calamity,'' ``consumers will face dramatically higher rates,'' ``many remain locked out,'' ``surprise, premiums just went up,'' ``instead of making it easier for people to get health insurance, it will be a lot tougher.'' What a train wreck.

    How can we tax people for not buying a product from a Web site that doesn't work? How can you give big businesses a tax break and leave hardworking families out in the cold? This is why we need to sit down and have a conversation about the big challenges that face our country.
