Entry Title Date
Further Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2015 February 27, 2015
Jim Langevin, D-RI
"Madam Speaker, I rise today to register my disbelief that Republicans are continuing to use funding for the Department of Homeland Security as a political football. Every single member of the Democratic Caucus is a cosponsor of a clean, full-year funding bill, a bill that would be sure to pass if House leaders were to allow it to come to the floor. Across the Capitol, the Senate has already passed a clean bill. And yet House Republicans continue to insist that their political priorities take precedence over the operations of an agency vital to our national security."
Recognizing Gabrielle Debinski And Millicent Allan Of The Uni-Capitol Washington Internship Program February 25, 2015
Alcee Hastings, D-FL
"Mr. Speaker, for decades the United States and Australia have shared a special union, being one of our nations closest cultural, economic, and security partners. I rise today to recognize a unique international exchange program between our two nations: the Uni-Capitol Washington Internship Program"
The Future Forum February 25, 2015
Eric Swalwell, D-CA
"Mr. Speaker, I would ask the gentleman from Pennsylvania, you talk about your call to service and after September 11, and you think back to that day, and I don’t know if you remember, but I remember Members of Congress, Republicans and Democrats, standing on the stairs of the Capitol, on the steps of the Capitol and singing “God Bless America” and “America the Beautiful.” It was such a moment of collaboration. Every day since that day, up until now, homeland security and our Nation’s security has always been about collaboration and bipartisanship. I just wonder, to hear that the Department of Homeland Security could be shutting down, hearkening back to what you thought about collaboration back then, does that gel, is that the collaboration that you had in mind and you always thought of around our Nation’s security?"
A Tribute To Sally Knowles-Jackson And The Uni-Capitol Washington Internship Program February 25, 2015
Joe Courtney, D-CT
"Mr. Speaker, as one of our closest allies, the nation of Australia has stood steadfast with the United States as we tackle issues of great importance to both nations. Like any strong friendship, our bilateral relationship requires that we collaborate and exchange ideas. I have been fortunate to work with Ambassador Kim Beazley to foster commerce between Connecticut and Australia, and have had the pleasure of hosting the Ambassador in my home state. And for many years, I have continued learning about Australia’s goals and priorities by hosting a series of intelligent, dedicated, and curious young professionals in my office through the Uni-Capitol Washington Internship Program."
The Importance Of Local Broadcasters February 25, 2015
Kevin Cramer, R-ND
"Today is a big day. It is an appropriate day to celebrate—not just inform and educate but celebrate—the role of America’s broadcasters in our communities. Because today, hundreds of Members of Congress were able to meet with their local television and radio station personalities and managers and representatives. Today, nearly 600 broadcasters came to Capitol Hill to tell their story of public service and to remind their Representatives of their role."
