                   AGAINST THE PRESIDENT'S JOBS BILL

  (Ms. HAYWORTH asked and was given permission to address the House for 
1 minute and to revise and extend her remarks.)
  Ms. HAYWORTH. Madam Speaker, on September 14, 2011, this year, Mark 
Prosachik from Hopewell Junction, New York, sent the following letter 
to me, and I quote:
  ``Dear Congresswoman Hayworth, I have been unemployed for over 18 
months and my unemployment insurance ran out, reducing my eligibility 
for extended benefits. You would think I would be fuming mad . . . and 
demanding the government make companies hire me. But, no. Instead I'm 
against President Obama's jobs bill. It is guaranteed to add to the 
country's bloated debt. It will require taxes to be raised. It will 
waste money training people when there are many with the skills who are 
unemployed.''
  Mr. Prosachik, I think you're absolutely right. Spending more of your 
hard-earned dollars or anybody's else's on projects like Solyndra or 
other efforts that unfortunately have not grown our economy will not 
work. I commend the Senate for rejecting a jobs bill that was a job-
killing bill.
  We in the House majority have passed bills throughout this year, 
joined often by our Democratic colleagues, that will grow jobs, that 
will revive our economy. I urge all of our colleagues in the Senate to 
pass that agenda immediately.
