Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Removing United States Armed Forces From Iraq July 25, 2014
Ed Royce, R-CA
"I think the President has failed U.S. national security interests by not, for example, authorizing or accepting the request made by the government in Iraq and by our personnel in our Embassy for drone strikes on these terrorist ISIS camps. Remember, this is a situation where the drone can actually see the ISIS combatants with the black flag of al Qaeda waving as they move across the desert or as they are encamped. This was an opportunity to hit them when they were vulnerable, before they began that city march across the desert, as they began to take those cities with their armed columns."
Honoring Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church July 25, 2014
Bennie Thompson, D-MS
"Our aim is to give every God-seeking person an opportunity to receive salvation. The church clearly reflects the importance of the social and religious life of the African-American community from its birth in 1865 up to the present. Let us resolve to make service to Christ a priority in our lives."
Home Rule For The District Of Columbia July 25, 2014
Eleanor Norton, D-DC
"I thought this media stunt was going to be a colossally goofball effort that had little to no effect on Harris or his views, and we still don’t know if it will, but on that day, his employees were clearly rattled, so mission accomplished. Moreover, Harris—who also has said that, to District residents, Congress is their local legislature—missed an opportunity to come across as something beyond another guy stuffed in a suit, overreaching his boundaries. By leaving the completely manageable demonstration to his marginally prepared aides, his stance on what the city’s drug policies should be came across as even more aloof and more nonsensical than ever."
Empowering Students Through Enhanced Financial Counseling Act July 24, 2014
John Kline, R-MN
"This motion, like all motions to recommit, affords the minority an opportunity to speak for 5 minutes to try to make political points before a procedural vote. That is done. Let’s take the vote. Vote “no” on this and “yes” on the underlying bill."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 3393, Student And Family Tax Simplification Act, And Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 4935, Child Tax Credit Improvement Act Of 2014 July 24, 2014
Tom Cole, R-OK
"I would invite my friend, if he has an opportunity, to look at a bipartisan bill that the gentleman from Maryland (Mr. Delaney)—from his side of the aisle—and I have on Social Security reform."
