    SHEA-PORTER asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend her remarks.) Ms. SHEA-PORTER. America is facing some very serious problems, and they're looking to Congress for a solution.

    What have we done this week since the sequester is coming on Friday? We had one vote yesterday, and that was to rename a flight center, and we have one vote today. And these are good votes, but just two votes. Friday is looming, and America wants us to answer the sequester.

    We heard the Speaker say that they have put two bills before the floor, but they have not been acceptable. We need to compromise.

    We also heard the Speaker say recently to the Senate to get going and get moving, and I would suggest that the House should do the same thing. We need to reach out and compromise, find the solution that can pass this House, pass the Senate, and become law.
