And no sooner do we come down here to do it than my colleague from the Rules Committee comes down to file this rule, Mr. Speaker, so that we can do this bill not 2 years from today, not after the next election, not 6 months from now, kicking the can down the road, but so that we can bring this bill to the floor tomorrow to address the concerns that we’re talking about today. That’s why you and I came to Congress, Mr. Speaker. That’s why this whole freshman class came to Congress."
