    YODER asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. YODER. Mr. Speaker, as Americans are making their New Year's resolutions, I think it is time that Congress makes a few New Year's resolutions of its own.

    Congress will resolve itself to stop asking for money and higher taxes from the American people to pay for more bureaucracy and more bloated Federal programs.

    Congress will actually try to balance its budget, something the rest of the American people have to do.

    Congress will resolve itself to stop the onslaught of rules, regulations, and mandates on our constituents that slow down the economy and kill jobs.

    Congress will focus more on programs that create jobs and less on programs that create government dependency.

    Congress will stop allowing the Federal Government to spy and read the emails of innocent Americans.

    Congress will resolve itself to live under the same laws it passes for everyone else with no special health care or retirement benefits.

    Lastly, Congress will resolve itself to spend more time listening to the American people and working together, Republicans and Democrats, to solve the problems our Nation faces.

    Mr. Speaker, these are a few New Year's resolutions for Congress that we would be well-served to follow.
