Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Child Care And Development Block Grant Of 2014—Resumed November 13, 2014
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"We all remember what it was like here in 2009 and 2010. Our friends on the other side had 60 votes. They could do whatever they wanted to. They could not pass cap-and-trade when they owned the place. They passed ObamaCare. They passed the stimulus. They passed Dodd-Frank. They couldn’t pass cap-and-trade."
Insurance Capital Standards Clarification Act Of 2014 September 19, 2014
Keith Ellison, D-MN
"Mr. Speaker, I oppose The Insurance Capital Standards Clarification Act of 2014 (H.R. 5461). While I support efforts to provide flexibility under the Dodd-Frank Act’s Collins amendment by explicitly stating that regulators are not required to apply minimum leverage capital and risk-based capital requirements to firms with state-regulated insurance operations, this bill does more than that. It contains The Mortgage Choice Act of 2013, (H.R. 3211)."
Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2015 September 18, 2014
Rand Paul, R-KY
"But it worries me. This President worries me, and it is not because of ObamaCare or Dodd-Frank or these horrific pieces of legislation. As I travel around the country, when people ask me “What has the President done? What is the worst thing he has done?” it is the usurpation of power, the idea that there is no separation of powers or that he is above that separation. If you want to tremble and worry about the future of our Republic, listen to the President when he says: Well, Congress won’t act; therefore, I must. Think about the implications of that."
Federal Reserve Transparency Act Of 2014 September 17, 2014
Maxine Waters, D-CA
"The fact is, since 1982 the Government Accountability Office has had the authority to audit the books of the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks. And in 2009, as part of the Dodd-Frank Act, Congress required GAO to audit the emergency lending facilities created in response to the financial crisis. This has already been accomplished and the results of the audit are posted on the Federal Reserve’s website."
Legislative Session September 17, 2014
John Cornyn, R-TX
"On tax reform, we believe our overriding goal should be to lower tax rates for all taxpayers, broaden the base, and simplify the entire system in order to restore America’s global competitiveness. We also favor ending “too big to fail,” thereby, ending the implicit government backstop and subsidy currently enjoyed by America’s largest banks. There are a number of ways to achieve that goal, but we all agree Dodd-Frank did not solve that problem."
