Speech by Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R-Arizona), June 28, 2005

   Mr. KOLBE. Mr. Chairman, I yield 1 minute to the distinguished gentleman from Arizona (Mr. Hayworth).

   (Mr. HAYWORTH asked and was given permission to revise and extend his remarks.)

   Mr. HAYWORTH. Mr. Chairman, I thank my colleague from Arizona for the time.

   I rise in opposition to the amendment. I do not doubt the sincerity of proponents of the amendment on either side of the aisle. Many compelling questions have been asked.

   In the final analysis, it is my firmly held conviction that what many maintain would be re-evaluation, that this immediate reduction would send the signal of retreat.

   We have heard criticisms of the taxation policies of Colombia. We have heard criticisms based on different political ideologies in the United States; but in the final analysis, as we conduct a worldwide war on terror, I would remind all in this House we are not just talking about Islamic fascism. We are talking about the rise of narcoterror.

   For that reason I oppose the amendment.
