    JOHNSON of Texas asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.) Mr. SAM JOHNSON of Texas. In just 2 days, President Obama's devised plan of across-the-board spending cuts known as ``sequester'' will kick in. I voted for House legislation to replace the President's plan with smarter and more responsible cuts. Unfortunately, the President and his friends in the Senate ignored it.

    Right now, America is over $16 trillion in debt. That means every American owes more than $52,000 each. Taxpayers all across this country know that Washington has a spending problem, not a revenue problem.

    Enough is enough. Now is the time to work together to stop spending money we do not have. We need to give the American people what they want, need, and deserve. We must get our fiscal house in order by balancing our budget. It's almost too late. Let's act now.
