Congressional Record entries

Entry Title Date
Department Of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2015 March 3, 2015
Mick Mulvaney, R-SC
"Mr. Speaker, I think the gentleman from Pennsylvania who spoke earlier was absolutely right. The people back home want us to do things. So I think the important thing to do now is to find out, why aren't we able to do anything? And I lay the blame firmly at the feet of the seven Democrats in the Senate who have said to their voters, they thought what the President did was wrong, yet they have voted time and again to continue the filibuster. That is wrong. And those are the people who are preventing the country from moving forward."
Department Of Homeland Security Appropriations Act Of 2015 January 14, 2015
Mick Mulvaney, R-SC
"Mr. Chairman, I am going to do something I don't ordinarily do on this floor, which is implore my colleagues across the aisle to please, please, please, support this amendment. Let's take away for at least one day the ``R'' or the ``D'' from behind the President's name. Let's take away the ``R'' or the ``D'' from behind our names and look at this for what it is: a President doing something he says he cannot do--make law--using the excuse that this body cannot act so that he can. That is not how the system works, and it is wrong."
Securing Energy Critical Elements And American Jobs Act Of 2014 July 22, 2014
Mick Mulvaney, R-SC
"Mr. Speaker, on that I demand the yeas and nays."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2015 April 10, 2014
Mick Mulvaney, R-SC
"Mr. Chairman, I think it is noteworthy that once again--once again--and this is the fourth budget cycle that I have been through, the fourth Democratic budget offered here, that never balances. It never balances. How do you ever, ever pay back money that you have already borrowed if you never have a surplus and never get to balance? I have said it before and I will say it again: if you borrow money from me and intend to pay it back, that is debt. If you borrow money from me and never intend to pay it back, that is theft. That is what the Democrats are offering here today, Mr. Chairman. They are encouraging us to borrow more and borrow more and borrow more and never lay out any plan whatsoever for paying that money back to the children and grandchildren from whom we are borrowing."
Declaring March 31 As National Lineman Appreciation Day March 11, 2014
Mick Mulvaney, R-SC
"Madam Speaker, I rise today to extend a special thank-you to the hardworking men and women across the Nation, but especially in South Carolina, who dedicate themselves to keeping the lights on during this difficult winter. For so many of us, switching on the light switch is something that we take for granted. It is easy to forget all the hard work that goes into making that happen."
