Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Intelligence Authorization Act For Fiscal Year 2016 June 17, 2015
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"Today’s bill is a missed opportunity to reevaluate methods of domestic surveillance, the growing size of the intelligence bureaucracy, and ending programs, like Guantanamo Bay, that only harm our national security, not help it."
Ensuring Tax Exempt Organizations The Right To Appeal Act—Motion To Proceed May 6, 2015
John Cornyn, R-TX
"For example, the CORRECTIONS Act would allow eligible offenders—mainly low-risk or medium-risk offenders; certainly not high-risk offenders—to earn additional days of good time credit by participating in programs that will help equip them for life outside of prison. Texas is sometimes considered a tough-on-crime State, and that is true. After awhile, though, we realized we also need to be smart on crime because virtually all of the people incarcerated in our prisons will eventually someday be released. We need to begin to focus on what we can do to help them—those who want help and who will accept that help—and how we can do a better job of equipping them so they don’t end up recommitting, reoffending, and ending up back in prison again. That is what this piece of legislation tries to do."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016—Conference Report—Continued May 5, 2015
Richard Blumenthal, D-CT
"In fact, I think America is ready to invest, ready to give back and to pay forward. In fact, I believe our wealthiest Americans are ready to do more and approve closing loopholes and ending subsidies, not making blanket cuts to vital programs, not cutting taxes for millionaires, as this budget would create a pathway to do, not forcing another 12 million middle-class families and students to pay for college by ending the American opportunity tax credit or adding $1,100 more in burdens on them, and not forcing 16 million middle-class families to pay a $900 tax hike by ending the expansions of the earned-income tax credit and child tax credit. I think our most fortunate Americans are ready to pay forward and do more and invest and, in fact, make more sacrifices, which is the way this budget ought to be arranged. And it isn’t even a matter of sacrifices on the part of anyone; it is ending the subsidies for outsourcing to ensure that everyone pays their fair share without those hidden tax breaks and subsidies that can be closed."
There Is No Power Like The Power Of A Mother April 28, 2015
Bobby Rush, D-IL
"To honor her and the important role that all mothers, mamas, our mothers—including my own mother—to honor them and to honor the important role that they play in taking back our streets and ending the violence that plagues our communities all across this Nation, I humbly call on America’s mothers, those in the African American community and outside of the African American community, those in urban areas and those in rural areas, all American mothers, to wear yellow, to wear yellow, to wear yellow on Mother’s Day in a symbolic show of solidarity and to create a “Mothers in Yellow” movement to end the violence that plagues this Nation’s cities, this Nation’s communities, this Nation’s neighborhoods."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2016 March 25, 2015
Raúl Grijalva, D-AZ
"You are going to hear from our colleagues on the other side of the aisle what a terrible scourge our people’s budget is on raising taxes and spending, but our budget provides to the American people some very distinct and necessary support: jobs, it creates jobs; security in retirement and in difficult times for the American people; fair wages for a fair day’s work; investments in our collective future: education, environment, children, and job training for the future; income stability and ending income inequality. Those are the priorities within the budget that reflect the needs of the American people. We offer opportunity to Americans who strive for a better life in this budget."
