Ms. FOXX. As my colleague knows, yesterday, in the Rules Committee, people on his side of the aisle talked about tax breaks and giveaways, and that, again, implies that all the money that hardworking taxpayers earn is government money, and that is not the way it is. That attitude about giving away money from the Federal Government implies that the money belongs to the government.
I would also like to point out to my colleague that the subsidies he talks about are not subsidies. They are the tax deductions, tax ``breaks'' that every manufacturer gets, not just the oil companies. To talk about corporate welfare is a bit disingenuous.
With that, Mr. Speaker, I reserve the balance of my time.
