CONGRESS CANNOT DEFEND AMERICA WITH STYROFOAM -- (House of Representatives - January 30, 2001)

[Page: H79] GPO's PDF

(Mr. TRAFICANT asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)

Mr. TRAFICANT . Madam Speaker, CSC Steel Company in my district has filed for bankruptcy protection, laying off 500 people. The reason is clear: foreign steel is being illegally dumped into America at record levels. Now if that is not enough to polish your stainless, the Clinton administration last month allowed an $18 million loan guarantee to a Chinese steel company. Beam me up.

Yes to Chinese steel; no to American steel. Is it any wonder the American steel industry is going belly up? I urge Congress to cosponsor House Resolution 16, that caused a 50 percent reduction of imports in 1998.

I yield back the fact that Congress cannot defend America with Styrofoam.
