    McGOVERN. Madam Speaker, I want to thank my friend, the gentleman from Oklahoma (Mr. Cole), for yielding me the customary 30 minutes, and I yield myself such time as I may consume.



    (Mr. McGOVERN asked and was given permission to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. McGOVERN. Madam Speaker, what we have before us can be described--very charitably--as a mixed bag. This is a 1,500-page bill that nobody has actually read. This is, by the way, two-sided. It came before the Rules Committee less than 24 hours after it was filed. Because of this rule and the process used to create the bill, no Member, Republican or Democrat, will have the opportunity to amend it or change it in any way.
