Mr. FRANK of Massachusetts. I have a parliamentary inquiry, Mr. Chairman
The Acting CHAIR. The gentleman will state his inquiry
Mr. FRANK of Massachusetts. What's the text of the amendment? This is the one we were given. Could I get a reading of the text of the amendment, or could I get a copy of the amendment?
The Acting CHAIR. The gentleman may ask unanimous consent for that.I'm sure there's a good explanation for it, but I think we're all better off imagining it instead of having me look it up and ruin the fun. If you follow the link, you can also read Frank on Czarinas vs. Czars, and his advice to Rep. Hal Rogers to "work out his Lenin fantasy."
Mr. CARTER. Will the gentleman yield for a moment?
Mr. FRANK of Massachusetts. I yield to the gentleman from Texas.
Excuse me. Does this have anything to do with cement? If you mention cement, I'm not yielding.
Mr. CARTER. I promise not to mention cement.
Mr. FRANK of Massachusetts. Then I yield. Because where I come from, cement was not good news for the people who were put into it.
I yield to the gentleman.
