    WILSON of Florida asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend her remarks.) Ms. WILSON of Florida. Mr. Speaker, Mr. Ryan's budget would cause millions of people to lose access to health care and tens of millions more to lose their jobs.

    My question is simple: Why? I've been here 802 days, and we have not considered a serious jobs bill yet. There are approximately 12 million people unemployed. It's unemployment, not debt, that's at an emergency level. When people lose their jobs, they lose their dignity; they lose their health care and eventually lose their homes.

    Shame, shame, shame.

    There is only one responsible way to reduce the deficit--get everyone trained, get everyone working, and get everyone contributing to the tax base. People are hurting. People are suffering. They want opportunities. Mr. Speaker, our mantra should be ``jobs, jobs, jobs.'' ____________________
