tv   U.S. House Debates and Approves Continuing Resolution  CSPAN  December 9, 2016 4:26am-5:44am EST

4:26 am
president biden's moon shot to cantser initiative. so -- to cancer initiative. so it's heartening to see these bear fruit, but this resolution stands in stark contrast to how the republican leadership of this house has managed the appropriations end game this year. rather than work in a productive way with democrats to finalize our fiscal 2017 appropriations bills, republican leaders of the house have again decided this time in ecided, this conniveance with the trump transition, to abandon the bills we negotiabilitied in good faith to have yet another stopgap measure this one lasting an arbitrary five months this doesn't bode well for the appropriations process. we've heard the alarm bells sounded by appropriations leaders from both sides of the aisle. make no mistake, there are some
4:27 am
immediate consequences as well this c.r. will damage h.u.d. programs that serve our most vulnerable populations. it will also prevent states from receiving new highway and transit funding called for in the bipartisan fast act. the c.r. also contains a partisan anti-safety provision that would block overnight rest requirements for commercial truck drivers, endangering highway travel for millions of drivers across the country. perhaps most egregious as well as unprecedented is the inclusion of a waiver for president-elect trump's nominee for secretary of defense. now whatever the merits of this nomination, setting aside the seven-year waiting period designed to protect civilian control of the military deserves more deliberation and debate than a c.r. provides. mr. speaker, as we enter this period of political uncertainty, i hope that we can commit in
4:28 am
future fiscal years to an appropriations process that allows us to exercise the pow over the purse this body's essential constitutional power, in a measured and bipartisan way. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentlewoman from new york reserves. the gentleman from kentucky. mr. rogers: i yield two minutes to the gentleman from idaho, who chair the all-important energy and water subcommittee on our committee, mr. simpson. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for two minutes. mr. simpson: thank you for the time. let me thank you for the job you've done over the last six years leading this committee. it's a difficult job, we have to make tough choices than committee has been willing to do this. i appreciate the leadership that you and ranking member lowey have provided for this committee and the direction we've been able to go. but let me say also, mr. speaker, i don't really like what we're doing here.
4:29 am
i don't think anybody on the appropriations committee likes what we're doing here. we all know it's necessary because we don't want the government to shut down. to it's amazing to listen all the people who come to the floor, i know all the appropriations committee members want to get back to regular order. the last time that was done was back in 1994. under republican and democrat leadership we have not been able to do it in the last 22 years. it's time we do. but it's amazing the number of people that come to the floor that aren't on the appropriation committees that say, man, we need to get back to regular order. and we all agree with that. so how do we do it. i'll tell you how we do it. it takes a commitment. it takes a commitment of republican and democratic leadership. if you're going to have open rules where any amendment can be offered and a lot of these appropriations bills come to the floor, we have 100 or 150 amendments offered, they take a
4:30 am
lot of time to pass. that's ok. we've got to have a commitment that we're going to spend time on the floor to do these appropriation bills. and we're willing to do that. but it takes a commitment from leadership that we're going to have the floor time. we used to have a time where all during the month of june, first of july, it was appropriation season. we were here six weeks in a row, five days a week, sometimes late at night and early in the morning, doing appropriations bills. e have a different schedule, because district work period is important for a lot of members, so every third week we go home to our districts. that time is important, but we're elected to do a job. we've got to be in washington and we've got to be on the floor and we've got to be debating these bills if we want to get back to regular order. we act as if it comes down from on high that this can't happen, like it's not in our control. it is in our control. and we on both sides of the aisle need to make a commitment
4:31 am
that we'll get back to regular order and do appropriations bills. i thank the chairman for all the job and all the effort he and ranking member lowey have done to bring us back to regular order to the extent that we can and hopefully we get back to it. i yield back my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back, the gentleman from kentucky reserves, the gentlewoman from new york. mrs. lowey: i'm delighted to yield three minutes to the gentleman from california, mr. farr, the ranking member of the subcommittee on agriculture appropriation. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized. mr. farr: thank you, mr. speaker, thank you, madam chair, for yielding. this is the last time i'll speak on this floor after 23 years of serving in the house of representatives. and it's sweet because it is about the appropriations process. and the wonderful camaraderie that that committee, which i think is the most important committee and most exciting committee in congress because you dealt with all aspects of
4:32 am
how tovet -- of how government operates. you really do the policy wonk, the technical stuff, the drilling down -- drilling down, all those words we use to understand how government works and how much it's going to cost. you've heard this incredible bipartisanship of people dedicated to the job they were elected to do and the committee they serve on. do the appropriations process. all of that is develop -- has developed this incredible friendship and i think respect, professional respect that we have for one another regardless of our philosophy. the bitterness of it is that you've just heard everyone so eloquently speak about the failure of the process. that we're doing a c.r. that nobody wants to do. why is that? frankly, they're not saying it, i think this is the first test of how the congress is going to respond to the new president-elect trump's agenda.
4:33 am
it was our former member, now vice president-elect mike pence, that said, we want a c.r. he served in this house. he knows the process. we don't want -- we were all in agreement. we were going to do a comprehensive bill. we've caved to this request. and we shouldn't. because this is the only place you do checks and balances. the abuses of the administration can be only checked and balanced in, mostly in this che. -- in this committee. it's going to be a tough year next year. it's going to be a tough year, some of the proposals being made are really radical, they're going to cut a lot of things and hurt a lot of people if this congress doesn't correct them, and we have a sense of how to do that, but we can't do it with a c.r. so i leave here, you know, really appreciative of the incredible responsibility that my electorate has given me to be
4:34 am
here, the privilege of being in the house of representatives, i really love the opportunity to be on the appropriations committee, i respect the leadership of the chair and ranking member, being able to produce some remarkable appropriations bills. but i just ask my colleagues, take back your power. be what the electorate wants. be what the constitution asks us to do. be that serious minded representational government that really drills down on how all of government is going to operate. don't cave in to c.r.'s. thank you very much. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. mr. rogers: will the gentleman yield? the gentleman and i don't agree on many issues but i think all of us agree he's been an outstanding member of the congress, he's been a work horse
4:35 am
on our committee, and we're going to miss you. so congratulations to you on a great career. thank you for serving. the speaker pro tempore: thank you -- mr. farr: thank you, mr. chairman, i appreciate those kind remarks. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the gentleman from new york reserve -- the gentlewoman from new york reserves. the gentleman from kentucky. the gentleman from kentucky reserves. the gentlewoman from new york. mrs. lowey: mr. speaker, i'm delighted to yield two minutes to the gentlelady from minnesota, ms. mccollum, ranking member of the interior and environment appropriations subcommittee. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman is recognized for two minutes. ms. mccollum: thank you. mr. speaker, once again this congress has abandoned its responsibility to provide a full-year appropriation. months of hard work were thrown away. pushing important funding
4:36 am
decisions down the road. i've heard from families and business leaders in my district, they're worried about the uncertainty that continuing resolutions create in their daily lives. it's not a good way to govern. it's not a good way forward for our country. as the ranking member of interior and environment subcommittee, i am disappointed that this bill only provides five months of funding for priorities like clean air, clean water, national parks, and our treaty obligations. we need to secure funding for hospitals and for schools in indian country and it should be for a full year. we need to manage our national forests and parks and the environmental protections agency of monitoring toxins that threaten the health of our families. the decision that we have before us today only allows these programs to continue for five months and be in jeopardy again in april this bill does not take
4:37 am
an -- this bill does take one important step, however, to assist with lead poisoning crisis in flint, although it's less than what's needed and coming far too late. i want to thank, however, toirman call vert and i want thank chairman rogers and ranking member lowey for their work to ensure this bill does not contain any new policy riders that would impact the interior subcommittee's jurisdiction. my biggest concern with this legislation is not interior related but instead involves the fundamental principle of our democracy. the dig by republican leadership to include language that would limit a full public debate on senate confirmation for the nominee of secretary of defense is alarming. civilian control of our military has been a corn stone of american democracy since our country's founding. when the secretary of defense position was created in 1947,
4:38 am
this principle was enshrined into law. with that, i think the decision moving forward in this bill is deeply concerning to all americans and i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman yields back. the gentleman from new york thisehaus went on to pass measure to fund the federal government through april 28. this continuing resolution goes to the senate, with government funding set to expire at midnight friday. president-elect donald trump held a rally in des moines, iowa last night. that is next on c-span. then, we look back at the life of former astronaut and senator john glenn, who died on thursday. on "washington journal," a conversation about the electoral college and the 2016 election results. live at 7:00 a.m. eastern.
4:39 am
often, when you look at a project, you look after it to see whether you have achieved your objectives, and at what cost. i wanted to see through this last half-century of military interventions, partisan politics aside, morality aside, what happens after the party is over? what are the aftereffects of war? what are the human and financial costs on both sides? brianday night on "q&a," gruber discusses his latest book, "war: the after party," which chronicles his travel experiences through countries affected by u.s.-involved conflicts. brian: i went to all these places. form ofome with some bias. i went to these places with an open mind, trying not so much to understand what a partisan point of view might be, or be
4:40 am
validated, but to look at, was the mission accomplished? and what were the costs on both ends? 8:00 easternht at on c-span's "q&a." chicago mayor rahm emanuel and a british member of parliament will sit down to discuss the future of cities, and how urban centers can engage more politically. live this morning from the brookings institution at 10:00 a.m. eastern. in the afternoon, a discussion on what the international community can do to combat child trafficking, at 1:00 eastern. donald trump held a rally with supporters in des moines, iowa. president-elect has held events in a number of states that he won in the november election. ♪

4:56 am
waver right? , they didn't waver. your governor did not waver. he did not waver. not even a little bit. and soon, i am going to invite onto stage one of the newest additions to our administration, a man you know well. one of the most important relationships we must improve, and we have to improve, is our relationship with china. the nation of china is responsible for almost half of america's trade deficit. china is not a market economy, they get a little bit of help. and that is why we designate them as a nonmarket economy -- big thing. they have not played by the rules, and it is time they are
4:57 am
going to start. they are going to start. they have got to. we are all in this thing together, folks. we got to play by the rules. you have the massive theft of intellectual property, putting unfair taxes on our companies, not putting the menace on north korea like they should. and the at will and massive devaluation of their currency, and product dumping. other than that, they have been wonderful, right? but i have to tell you, the man that is going to be coming up here very soon. every single time i have spoken, as i am going onto the stage, he says, please, mr. trump -- he could then call me mr. trump. now, he just calls me president-elect, can you believe it? if it was not for him, i probably would not be
4:58 am
president-elect. but he always would say, mr. trump, donald, don't say anything bad about china when you are in iowa. [laughter] president-elect trump: i said, why? " because i have so many friends . i like them, and they like me. and we do well with china. we do well with china." so when it came to think about the ambassador to china, right? i started saying, now, wait a minute. this is big stuff. i cannot tell you how many people wanted that position. it is not bad, you go over there and you live like a king. but he is not looking to live like you can come and he and his beautiful wife came to my office the other day. they are looking to work on the relationship, because he knows the people, and the leaders in china, for so many years. he knew the current leader years ago, and he said, he will be the ultimate leader, when he was a young guy. you have a very special man.
4:59 am
and i just want to tell you officially the man i have chosen , as our ambassador to china, is the man that knows china and likes china -- you better like china if you will be over there. do we agree? and knows how to deliver results -- and he will deliver results, just like he has been delivering results for 23 years for the great farmers and for the people of iowa. [applause] president-elect trump: he has been on six missions to china and is highly respected by all of the chinese officials. he is also a native of iowa, he is also a native of iowa, america's longest serving governor in the history of our country, 23 years. [applause] president-elect trump: think of that. in the history. you do not know what it is, to be a governor for four years is
5:00 am
tough. and has done an incredible job. he has also become a great friend of mine. i am now honored to welcome to the stage our next ambassador to china, your governor, and i can truly say your great governor, terry branstad. come up, terry. [applause] >> this is a big room. [cheers]
5:01 am
mr. branstad: wow. president-elect trump. fellow iowans, it has been an honor and privilege to serve the people of this state and thanks to our great new president that will make america great again, i am very proud to serve america in this very important role. thank you very much. [applause] [cheers] president-elect trump: he is going to do so great. with terry on our side, i know we will succeed in bringing our jobs back. i also know that china, who has been so tough and competitive,
5:02 am
and dealing with people that did not get it. i will tell you what, we will have mutual respect. and china is going to benefit and we will benefit and terry will lead the way. i just want to congratulate him. to accomplish our goals, we must reject the failed approaches of the past. government needs to stop listening to the special interests, and start delivering for the national interests. it is time to deliver for you, just like iowa delivered for me. boy, did you deliver. just to go into this, we want -- won almost every single county in the state. we won by over 10 points.
5:03 am
we won one county that was not won since eisenhower. anybody know the name of the county? correct. and we had a great night. iowa was announced very early. so was ohio. we took ohio by almost nine points. and we were expected to win it by two points or three. that made the other side nervous. then my friends right in this room got announced, and we won by 10 points. and they saw almost every single county and it was incredible. on the other side said maybe those two are flukes. then we won florida, south carolina, north carolina, and pennsylvania. we won michigan, wisconsin,
5:04 am
georgia, and texas. and utah. remember utah? where they said this guy is an unknown person, he is doing so well. remember? they said utah is in play. no republican has ever lost utah. i went to my people and i said, we have problems. utah is in play. this guy is supposed to be doing well. it was like we tied. they had hillary in third place. this was a case where i wanted her to be in second place, to be honest. this guy was supposedly in second place. they said texas, very close. georgia, very close. they had us so close, too close to call. it was before the election.
5:05 am
then the election -- so now, the polls open and they go, texas goes to trump. georgia goes to trump. utah. right at the beginning. i won them in landslides. i said, what has been going on? they are in play. meaning, they are very close. guess what, they were not in play. so that was nice. they said immediately, donald trump wins texas. they said, very important, trump wins iowa. that was a big one. [applause] president-elect trump: the numbers were so big, that the rest of the night, the other side said, that is a big number. that was a lot more than we were
5:06 am
supposed to lose by. this is a thank you, and it is a thank you iowa, ohio, florida and a lot of the states that were so crucial. and we won every one of them. nebraska, a guy from nebraska. we won nebraska. we won it twice. we had a lot of good, wealthy people fighting us and that did not work. they are not so unhappy now, because the stock market has gone up so much because of us. those wealthy people just got wealthier, right? they had a lot of buses. they were busing people from all over the place. the american worker built this country and now it is time for american workers to have the
5:07 am
government that for the first time in decades answers to them. we are going to answer to them. my plan begins with structural reform to create millions of really good paying jobs. jobs. whether it is agriculture, medicine or military technology, , we want the next generation of animation and production to happen in america and right here in iowa, you will be big beneficiaries. big beneficiaries. first on taxes, we will undertake one of the greatest tax reforms and simplifications in american history. it has got to be simpler. too much work and complicated. at the center of the plan is tax relief for the american middle class.
5:08 am
has been forgotten. boy, did they come out and vote. they came out and vote. you know, i think both parties to a certain extent, the other side -- they forgot about those people. that is why i call them the forgotten men and the forgotten women. they are not forgotten anymore. they are not forgotten anymore. we are also going to lower the business tax rate from 35% all the way down to 15%. that is going to be great. going to prime the pump. got to prime the pump. we have 65 million people out there, they have to work. they will have their choice of jobs. wouldn't it be nice if you with around to your wife and husband and said, harry or sally, i
5:09 am
don't know which one to take. i have so many options. so many options. please, sally help me choose. you will have that. you will have options. you can take whatever you can get, we will have options. on regulations, we will eliminate every wasteful regulation that hurts our farmers, our workers, and our small businesses. you saw it today, scott pruitt, who is a tremendous guy, met with applause from the business community. we will protect the family farm and we are going to end the epa intrusion into your lives. [applause] president-elect trump: on energy. we will cancel the job killing restrictions on the production of american energy. that means lower energy prices
5:10 am
for farmers, households, and small businesses. in iowa and all over the united states. we will also pursue an agenda of conservation, protecting our beautiful natural resources for future americans, your children and a lot of other people. and we will ensure clean air and clean water for all of our people. [applause] president-elect trump: regulations, by the way, will be cut down to a fraction of what they are now. believe it or not, environmentally we will be protected better and we will have jobs. we will have jobs. on infrastructure, i'm going to ask congress to pass legislation that produces $1 trillion of new investment in america's crumbling infrastructure. it is crumbling. it includes major projects for our rural communities and urban communities.
5:11 am
which have also been forgotten. and we will put our people, not people from other lands, our people will go back to work in the process. ok? [applause] president-elect trump: it is time to help americans get off of welfare and get back into the labor market. and they will want to do it. rebuilding this country with american hands, by american workers. we are going to do it. we will have people who have not worked for years, they are going to love it. they will be incentivized. my administration will follow
5:12 am
two rules, buy american, and hire american. remember, years ago we used to proudly display, made in the usa. you would get a car and it would say, made in the usa. i do not see it anymore. any of the manufacturers, and we're doing a lot of talking to a lot of companies that are thinking about leaving i do not , think they will be leaving. they will not be leaving so fast anymore. because we love our companies and we love it when they are employing thousands of people. but we do not love our companies when they leave and go to another country and think they can make their products and sell it back into our country like we are a bunch of fools, like they have been getting away with for the last 35 years. not going to do it. there will be consequences. when they want to leave, i will wish them well.
5:13 am
i only say, enjoy your new plant, enjoy the very hot weather. will be coming through a very strong order, that will not be easy. we will not be the stupid people. because from now on it is going to be america first, it will be america first. very simple. some of the deals made, i have been studying them. i actually like reading deals. i do not know what that is. i have been reading these deals and they are horrible. they are inconceivable. but we will have great news for you in the near future. on trade, the trade deficit now nearly $800 billion a year. think of that. we trade. i want to trade, i'm a free trader. but it needs to make sense. you don't want to trade if you're going to lose $800
5:14 am
billion a year, it is a chronic drag on growth, and a total destroyer of jobs and the wealth of our country. we do not want that anymore. [applause] president-elect trump: by the way, some of the people i put on to negotiate are some of the most successful people in the world. newspaper criticized me, why one can't they have people of modest means. because i want people who have made a fortune. they are negotiating for you. it is no different from a great baseball player or golfer, we will want the people that are going to bring -- and they are so proud to do it. they have given up fortunes in order to make one dollar a year. and they are so proud to do it. watch what will happen. it will happen fast. it will happen very fast.

[applause] president-elect trump: i actually love calling these companies. i say, give me a list of 10 companies that are leaving. and i love calling them and saying, hi. i get the president of the company, and i say how are you doing? and they say, congratulations mr. president-elect. and i say, do not leave. and we have had great success.

5:17 am
we don't want to use it. it has to be there. at the same time, we will ensure our veterans have the best medical care, including the best health care for our female veterans that have also been the forgotten people. a lot of forgotten people in this country. a lot of forgotten people. those female veterans have had had it tougher than almost anybody. thank you. that is very nice. on childcare i am asking congress to pass legislation to make safe and affordable childcare accessible to all, while fighting for higher pay for women. women in the workforce, that is what has to happen. and ensuring women owned small businesses can access the capital they need.
5:18 am
be working ono plans for companies, not only women, but for companies to invest. right now, there is no capital. you cannot get a loan. we will open it up and you will be able to get loans and you will be able to expand your businesses. it will be a beautiful thing. it has to happen. so many people cannot get jobs. the unemployment number is totally fiction. if you look for a job for six months and you give up, they consider -- you give up, you go home and say, i cannot get a job. they consider you statistically employed. it is not that way. do not worry about it, it will take care of itself. we want to support every young woman who dreams of owning a small business, because that dream has not been a dream for a
5:19 am
long time. on health care reform, i want to tell you and i want to thank the women, because i heard from months, i will not do well with women. i said, why? what is wrong with women? i said i will trade the men for the women. i wanted to -- and then we had the election and i did great with women. i led in many categories and every time we had a rally, i would have the beautiful pink signs, women for trump. and then i would go home and turn on the television to see how massive the crowd was, and they would never show it. and they would talk about women. guess what, we did great with women. african-americans, the african-american communities -- unbelievable.
5:20 am
much more than in the past for other people. i heard that was going to be off. it was fantastic. plus, a lot did not vote for hillary. hispanic community, incredible. with the males i set records, but who cares? who cares? i would rather set the records with the women. we did well with all groups. i will tell you where we really did well, an all-time record, go -- not even close evangelicals. , i love you. evangelicals. we had such great help -- the pastors, the ministers -- and i will not go into detail, but we will get rid of the johnson amendment. it is a disaster.
5:21 am
on health care reform, every day the law known as obamacare is destabilizing our health care system, surging premiums and forcing providers out of the market. they are out of the market. nobody to talk to. if we do not act quickly, the damage will be irreversible and our country cannot afford it. i'd only can't you not afford it, our country cannot. we must repeal and replace obamacare. we have no choice. [applause] president-elect trump: premiums, in some states, the great state of arizona, another one i want by a lot -- won by a lot. at the beginning of the evening i was saying, this is a lot of fun. arizona was great to me.
5:22 am
obamacare is up 116%. it is going much higher. so we will get that taken care of. on crime, the murder rate has experienced its largest increase in 45 years. we are going to support the incredible men and women of law enforcement.

5:24 am
we need some tough people. we have smart people. during the campaign i had a chance to meet the family of sarah root, who was killed by an illegal immigrant. who was released from custody two separate times. a trump administration will stop the violence that is spelling across our border and believe , me, you have seen it, it is unbelievable how much there is and we will fight to protect every last american life, and life. and life. during the campaign, i also spent time with american workers who were laid off and forced to train the foreign workers brought in to replace them. we won't let this happen anymore. [applause]
5:25 am
that? believe you get laid off, and you don't pay unlessverance you train the people that are replacing you. that is actually demeaning, maybe more than anything else. and you know the name of one of the companies that did it. i will be nice because we are trying to get that company back. don't forget, much harder when they announced a year and a half ago, some of these companies like carrier, they announced long before i even knew i was going to be running for president. by the way, are you glad i ran for president? i think so. [applause] donald trump: what now? the movement, it is a movement. but it is hard to tell somebody, we don't want you to leave. we don't want you to go to mexico. wherever you go, but they say, sir, we have already built our plant. that is not a great position, and yet we still kept so many of
5:26 am
those workers so that was a good , job. our governor who will soon be our vice president, indiana, we call him indiana mike, he is a great guy. one of my great decisions. he is a friend of mine, but he is a great guy. hasn't he done a great job? mike pence. [applause] donald trump: he has done such a good job. one of my first executive orders will be to have the department of labor investigate all of these abuses that undermine jobs and wages to the american worker. [applause] donald trump: to protect our country from terrorism and extremism, we will suspend immigration from regions where it cannot be safely processed or vetted. you know that i use the expression extreme vetting.
5:27 am
extreme, oh, it is going to be extreme. we want people coming into our country, we want them coming in legally, but we want them coming in legally, but we want them coming in. when i talk about we build a wall, we will, and there will be big, beautiful doors. we will have people coming in to the country, but they will come in with a process, they will come in legally, and we will see that these people have true capability to love us, not to hate us, to love us. [applause] donald trump: earlier today i visited the campus of ohio state university, great, great place. to meet with victims of the attack that occurred only days ago with one man that saved a lot of lives. our whole nation extends our prayers. it is true.

batman was a young guy. give him applause, come on. he might be watching. [applause] president-elect trump: our whole nation extends our prayers and support. we will be solid, we will be together, we will be a strong, strong together nation. i was lucky enough to receive the "time" person -- they used to call it man of the year, but they can't do it anymore. they call it person. they want to be politically correct. they talked about a divided nation on the cover. they give me this honor. they have to go a divided nation. i said, i haven't been president, what are you saying that for? but we are going to bring the nation together. we are going to bring the nation together. [applause] donald trump: we are not going to have a divided nation.
5:29 am
and i want to applaud the university leadership and students for their response in the attack and their police department really has done a terrific job. it is swift, lifesaving work. they have really been. it was incredible. they were great people. this horrific assault is yet one more reminder that immigration security is now national security. no more games, folks. no more games. no more games. [applause] : a trump-elect trump administration will always put the safety and security of the american people first. it is going to be the american people it has not been that way. first. when i look at trade deals i have been studying the much over the last few weeks, i think they meant to make them good for other nations, or maybe that was the concept, because i say, how
5:30 am
can the agreement be so bad? is it possible to be so bad? i believe they meant to make it good, maybe to help the other nations, but they are killing us. are we tired of this? they are killing us. how many of these can you do? we will change them around, get it going. you see what is going on, you see what is going on on wall street. it is a beautiful thing. all over the world they are talking about our country, and we haven't even started yet. wait until we start. such potential.
