Speech by Rep. David Obey (D-Wisconsin), March 29, 2000

Mr. OBEY. Mr. Chairman, if the Members of the majority can stand the shock of my speaking from the majority side, I would simply say that I had not wanted to go through this amendment because there are a number of things in this bill that I do not want to cut out, but we have not been given any other opportunity to cut out the things that I think really need to be cut out with respect to this new adventure in Colombia. And absent our ability to get more consideration of that, I am going to support the Ramstad amendment. I think it gives us no choice, given the choice the House presented to us today.
