Madam Speaker, during the President's effort to lobby for the government takeover of health care, he promised the American people his proposal would cost $940 billion and ``won't add a dime to the deficit and is paid for upfront.''

The Washington Examiner editorialized last week the President ``knew the funny numbers his administration was putting out,'' but delivered a speech with blunders anyway.

Last week, the Congressional Budget Office released a report stating that ObamaCare will cost $1.76 trillion, a figure almost double the initial price tag that he promised.

Based on these reports, it is clear that the false claims are being exposed. House Republicans have already voted to repeal the unconstitutional government takeover of health care, which the NFIB has said it will destroy 1.6 million jobs. The Senate now needs to vote.

In conclusion, God bless our troops, and we will never forget September the 11th in the global war on terrorism.
