Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Omnibus Appropriations Bill December 15, 2014
Ron Wyden, D-OR
"However, I also have to voice my disappointment over a number of provisions included in H.R. 83, as well as several provisions that were blocked from inclusion in H.R. 83. Keeping the government running is imperative but it should not come at the cost of stripping the rights of voters, further chipping away at what is left of our eroding campaign finance laws, and rolling back Dodd-Frank protections meant to reduce taxpayer risk from “too-big-to-fail” entities, just to name a few of the objectionable provisions in this bill."
Commodity Exchange Act And Securities Exchange Act Amendments December 2, 2014
Blaine Luetkemeyer, R-MO
"Without derivatives, businesses and their customers would face increased prices for the goods and services these businesses provide. The derivatives these businesses use are not risky. They played no role in the financial crisis. Nevertheless, they were targeted in the Dodd-Frank Act, which increased their price and decreased their availability."
Financial Institution Bankruptcy Act Of 2014 December 1, 2014
Spencer Bachus, R-AL
"I see my time has almost expired, but let me close by saying this: Dodd-Frank said let’s go to GAO, let’s go to the Federal Reserve."
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)."
