Entry Title Date
Prescription Drug Addiction February 2, 2016
Edward Markey, D-MA
"Mr. President, this means that the DEA needs to reduce the quotas of oxycodone and hydrocodone that it approves for manufacture each year. The DEA is allowing Big Pharma to manufacture too many of these pain pills. Although the United States is less than 5 percent of the world’s population, Americans consume 80 percent of the global supply of opioid painkillers and 99 percent of the world’s supply of hydrocodone, the active ingredient in Vicodin. Tragically, we have become the “United States of oxy.”"
Issues Of The Day December 17, 2015
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"John Dodson, the federal agent who blew the lid off the Justice Department’s `Fast and Furious’ gun-walking scandal, claims the FBI had ties to the men who killed U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, in 2010, near Nogales, Arizona. In fact, Dodson says the Mexican bandits who gunned down Terry were working for FBI operatives and had been sent to the border to do a `drug rip-off’ using intelligence gathered by the DEA. Dodson, a special agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, said he doesn’t think the FBI was part of the rip-off crew, but the agency was `directing the rip crew.’ ”"

American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act Of 2015 November 19, 2015
Zoe Lofgren, D-CA
"We have a process that includes soliciting information from the DEA, from the intelligence agencies, from the FBI, and the like. All of those agencies have a veto. If there is a problem, they veto the admission. The process takes 2 years or more, and a very small number of people actually are admitted."
The Culture Of Opposition Needs To Change November 18, 2015
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"What is a joke is the job Rosenberg is doing as acting DEA administrator. He is an example of an inept, misinformed zealot who has mismanaged America’s failed policy of marijuana prohibition."
