    STEWART asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Mr. STEWART. Madam Speaker, here we are, entering the sixth year of the Obama Administration, and we have reached a new milestone. It is a shameful and discouraging milestone that directly affects the lives of every working American family.

    After 7 straight years of decline, this great Nation has fallen out of the top 10 most economically free nations.

    The United States of America, the Nation that invented and created the world's greatest middle class, the Nation that taught the world the meaning of free enterprise, the Nation that figured out more than 200 years ago that greater economic freedom leads to greater individual growth, economic growth, social stability, personal opportunity, has now fallen behind such economic powerhouses as Denmark and Chile and Estonia in economic freedom.

    We all pay the price. Every American family.

    Why are we doing this to our children? I hope and I pray that we can reclaim the American Dream before it is too late.
