Mr. Speaker, I bring you news from the people. Boy Scout Daniel Wolf of Spring, Texas, wrote me the following about our economic crisis.

``I am concerned about my generation paying for the mistakes that the government is making. It's just not fair. It's kind of like you and a friend are doing a project together and he doesn't want to do his part, so you end up doing all the work. The government is bailing out Wall Street, banks, mortgages, the car industry, and also increasing spending and putting our country into more debt and the next generation is going to have to pay for it.

``The government needs to lower taxes and quit spending so much. I think that people should spend the money they earn the way they want to and not have the government do it for them.''

Mr. Speaker, those who say the government needs to take money from some citizens and give it to certain special interest groups to stimulate the economy are wrong.

As Boy Scout Daniel says, ``that's not fair,'' and I agree. This massive government money grab and redistribution of somebody else's income is going to cause more problems during this economic crisis. But as it has been said, ``if you think the problems government creates are bad, just wait until you see the government's solutions.''

And that's just the way it is.
