Entry Title Date
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016 March 26, 2015
Michael Enzi, R-WY
"Mr. President, I object. The vote is set aside for 12 noon. We could have 50 more people coming down and offering additional amendments. They will have an opportunity to offer those amendments."
The 36Th Anniversary Of The Taiwan Relations Act March 26, 2015
André Carson, D-IN
"Since coming to Congress, I have had an opportunity to travel to Taiwan and to interact with many Taiwanese-Americans. I appreciate their friendship and hospitality. On its 36th anniversary, I am pleased that the TRA continues to guide U.S.-Taiwan relations so we can further strengthen this important partnership."
The Week In Review March 26, 2015
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"Then when you have a nation like Iran, that is doing—they make clear, even as of last week, that the top leaders in Iran want death to America. Well, apparently, when this administration hears a religious fanatic that has killed American soldiers, killed American civilians, has really been at the lead of killing Americans wherever they could find them and have an opportunity to kill them and want to wipe Israel off the map, as the Little Satan, and wipe America off the map, as the Great Satan—they have continued to pursue nuclear weapons, and while this administration was rushing and continue to rush to talk to the leaders in Iran, it leaves some of us aghast at how blind the administration can be as to who is our friend and who is our enemy."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2016 March 25, 2015
Diane Black, R-TN
"Mr. Chairman, the best way to lift someone out of poverty is to give them an opportunity to have a job, and that is what A Balanced Budget for a Stronger America does. It does cut taxes, allowing for more job opportunities and an increase in wages for the workers."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016—Continued March 25, 2015
Michael Enzi, R-WY
"I had an opportunity to go on a trip to China, and we visited one of the country’s labs researching climate change. I had the opportunity to tour the lab with the Senator from Illinois, Mr. Durbin. One of the amazing things was—as we finished the tour after looking at five different ways the scientists were measuring what caused climate change and how real it was—when Senator Durbin said to me: I am sure glad Senator Inhofe is not with us because this backs up everything Senator Inhofe has been saying."
