    Local Media Quotes

    Name: Ari Goodman Party: Democrat Interviewing Agency: Atlanta Journal Constitution "The DOW plunging is concerning, there are only alternatives to when this happens, "market correcting" or signs of an economic recession. Even during times of unlimited growth the economy can fall into a recession, it is concerning to say the least that the White House is downplaying this when there is great concern but instead rolling out the 500,000 jobs created this quarter is the more important to the administration. Those 500,000 jobs could easily becoming 500,000 unemployed Americans. I urge the White House to least present all the facts."

    DEBATE: Defense of Marriage Act

    Mr. Speaker, Only 11% of Americans in recent polling support the legalization of same-sex marriage, a preemptive strike to an issue that isn't important and is just plain divisive and unnecessary. I believe marriage is an institution for the union of a man and a woman, that is clear. However I don't see the great importance of passing this legislation with barely a majority of this nation's population supporting gay equality in God sanctioned marriage. I yield.
