Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
North Korea Sanctions Enforcement Act Of 2016 February 12, 2016
Ed Royce, R-CA
"When I was in North Korea, I had an opportunity to see something that struck me just in terms of the malnutrition. The NGO community tells us that close to 50 percent of those children are malnourished. What I saw in terms of the malnourishment, the NGO community says malnourished to the point that it affects their ability to learn."
America’S Rule Book: The United States Constitution February 12, 2016
Rob Woodall, R-GA
"Mr. Speaker, one of my great disappointments in this administration is that President Obama had an opportunity to lead America in ways that no other President could have led. He had an opportunity when he was elected, with all of his personal charisma and popularity, to lead public opinion in ways that no other President could. He was not my choice for President, but when America chose him, America chose opportunity to do things that we could not have done otherwise."
Honoring Representative Michael Garver “Mike” Oxley February 11, 2016
Steven Chabot, R-OH
"There are so many Members that have had an opportunity to speak here this evening. We only had an hour, unfortunately, and we would like to go on a lot longer, but our hour is nearly up."
Internet Tax Freedom Forever Act February 11, 2016
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Congress first voted to ban taxes on Internet access back in 1998, but it was only a temporary ban. Congress has since held that vote eight additional times—eight extensions of the Internet tax moratorium over these years. Today we have an opportunity to make it permanent."
Debt Management And Fiscal Responsibility Act Of 2015 February 11, 2016
Joseph Crowley, D-NY
"The facts are the facts. Reductions are taking place. Accept it. They may not be pretty. The President is proposing them. At least listen to him before you totally disregard it before he has an opportunity to speak to you all. That is what has happened."
