Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Halting The GOP March Toward Impeachment July 29, 2014
Marc Veasey, D-TX
"We must focus on critical legislative priorities instead of political lawsuits that will do nothing but waste millions of the taxpayers’ dollars. There are critical issues that need action now. How about creating some jobs, raising the minimum wage, or maybe fixing our broken immigration system before we leave here?"
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 4315, 21St Century Endangered Species Transparency Act July 29, 2014
Jared Polis, D-CO
"Congress should be considering legislation to secure the border or deal with the crisis of unaccompanied minors on our southern border, to balance our budget, to reform our broken immigration system, to deal with wildfires, to raise the minimum wage, to protect workers. But instead, here we are debating partisan changes to a piece of legislation that has, frankly, served us well and our ecosystems well over the prior decades."
Let’S Not Waste Precious Time Suing The President July 29, 2014
Nydia Velázquez, D-NY
"Mr. Speaker, with 3 legislative days left before Congress leaves for a 5-week vacation, Democrats are working to advance the priorities of the American people: creating jobs, jump-starting the middle class, and working to reform our broken immigration system. The majority, however, seems only interested in advancing a lawsuit against the President of the United States."
House Republican Subterfuge July 29, 2014
James Clyburn, D-SC
"Mr. Speaker, the American people need to know what is going on here. Rather than focusing on creating jobs, fixing our broken immigration system, rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure, and other sensible measures that can help hardworking families struggling to make ends meet, House Republicans are obsessed with political gamesmanship on a historic scale. Nothing could be more serious."
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
Jared Polis, D-CO
"I think the frustration around the process is we are open to any process of bringing forward the ideas that Mr. Pascrell talked about to the floor, and we are presenting them in this context. There is a growing frustration on a number of issues, whether it is fixing our broken immigration system, whether it is extending unemployment, or whether it is how we are paying for these tax cuts. We want to avail ourselves of every procedural opportunity for this House to consider the items that matter to the American people."
