"Mister Speaker, I believe the Prime Minister has proved my point. If he believes that the only way to reduce is inequity is to be a communist, then by goodness, let us all be communists. I've got a bit of a head start, but of course you can all catch up.

Mister Speaker, I do have a follow-up question: what about wealth redistribution? What about a commitment to government spending? The possibilities are myriad."

This bill, is part of the coordinated efforts of establishmentarian politics to tie us to the EU behemoth and away from those who we are closest with, our Hellenic brethren just across the sea of whom we have significant economic ties exist in the +2 time zone. We, geographically, belong in the +2 time zone. Yet the member wishes for us to tie ourselves to the boot heel of Germany, for what cause?!

"Mister Speaker, I believe the member is mistaken. We are more geographically aligned with the +1 time zone. But on the economic question, I hear his concerns. Germany and Greece are not the only two countries. Greece for sure is a closer partner in many ways, but on balance, the value of what we gain in the +1 zone is much greater than that in the +2.
