    WILSON of South Carolina asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. WILSON of South Carolina. Mr. Speaker, in 2013, we witnessed the disastrous impacts of Big Government. From the administration's failed rollout of ObamaCare--destroying jobs--to the undermining of our national security by military sequestration, we know this harms our families, our economy, and our safety.

    Last week, I had the opportunity to travel across South Carolina's Second Congressional District to unveil legislative priorities for 2014. My constituents shared my concerns that Congress must focus on legislation to create jobs through economic growth.

    We must also reduce our spending so that our children and grandchildren will not be faced with the burden of out-of-control debt. Encouraging energy dependence through the completion of the Keystone XL pipeline will also create jobs at Michelin and MTU in South Carolina.

    Additionally, promoting our brave men and women in uniform, military families, and veterans must remain at the top of our priority list. We must protect our heroes who risk their lives to protect us.

    In conclusion, God bless our troops, and we will never forget September the 11th in the global war on terrorism.
