1997 Ron Paul 42:1
Mr. PAUL. Mr. Speaker, will the gentleman yield?

1997 Ron Paul 42:2
Mr. GEJDENSON. I yield to the gentleman from Texas.

1997 Ron Paul 42:3
Mr. PAUL. Well, I would vote to change the taxes, but mainly to lower them for everybody. But I think that the point that I am trying to make is that the large amount of capital that helped Europe recover did not come from the taxpayers. That was a small amount. There were a lot of other investors that went into Europe. And the key reason was the political stability and the good economic climate which Erhard helped to introduce. I think that is much important.

1997 Ron Paul 42:4
There is a difference between what happened in Europe versus the waste that we had in Rwanda. We didn’t do the people, the poor people of Rwanda, very many favors by sending money down there that became a political weapon to suppress the poor.

Just as Ron Paul finishes, the time of Mr. Gejdenson, who yielded to him, expired.
