    OLSON asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. OLSON. Mr. Speaker, tonight the American people see if President Obama will keep his word regarding sequestration. At the third Presidential debate, President Obama said: First of all, the sequester is not something that I proposed. It's something that Congress has proposed. It will not happen.

    As you can see, the truth is that sequestration was a concept that came from President Obama's White House, and sequestration is happening unless Congress acts. President Obama must keep his promise to find the necessary cuts to get our fiscal house in order. We cannot fix this problem by taxing the American people more.

    Mr. Speaker, I urge the President to keep his promise to fix the current sequestration and maintain the needed cuts in spending.
