    DAVIS of Illinois. Mr. Speaker, I want to thank the ranking member for yielding.



    I rise in opposition to this rule, and I don't do so because it gives us limited opportunity to keep the government open for a few days, and I know that we are going to allow our physicians to practice medicine so that they can take care of Medicare patients for a few more days. What it does not do is it does not extend unemployment insurance for those 2 million or more people who will not have it. This is not going to be a good Christmas for many of the people in my district. It is going to be just the opposite.

    I will vote against the rule so that we can, in fact, come back and provide unemployment compensation to those millions who need it.
