Madam Speaker, I rise today in strong support of H.R. 2965, the Don't Ask Don't Tell Repeal Act of 2010.  This will be the second time this year that the House votes to repeal the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, and I urge my colleagues to support it.

Congresswoman McCollum Votes Protect American Jobs
Congresswoman McCollum and Democrats were joined by 99 Republicans in passing the Currency Reform for Fair Trade Act (H.R. 2378), which helps prevent unfair trade practices that hurt U.S. exports and push American jobs overseas. Certain countries, such as China, suppress the value of their currencies to make exports cheaper on the international market. This currency manipulation makes U.S. exports less competitive, hurts U.S. manufacturers, and slows the economic recovery.

July 27, 2010 Statements For the Record

Madam Speaker, across our country there are communities, businesses, and families that continue to struggle to escape an economic recession that has caused far reaching hardship and too much pain.
