Mr. KINGSTON. I thank the gentleman for yielding.
I have to ask my friends who have spoken before me: If the bill is as good as you say it is, why are any of these bribes in the bill to begin with? The President said, January 25, ``It is an ugly process, and it looks like there are a bunch of backroom deals.''
