Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Finance Committee’S Report On Its Investigation Of The Irs August 5, 2015
Orrin Hatch, R-UT
"Keep in mind that when the inspector general investigates and if he doesn’t find an absolute, they say he doesn’t find anything. They are not going to pick on anybody. I have a lot of respect for the inspector general at the IRS. I remember his being criticized because apparently he is a Republican. But he is not going to accuse anybody if he doesn’t have the evidence."
Nuclear Agreement With Iran August 5, 2015
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Mr. President, as the administration’s agreement with Iran comes under greater scrutiny, there is growing bipartisan concern. It is widespread, and it is well founded. The leading House Democrat on the Foreign Affairs Committee recently said the deal “troubled” him because “it doesn’t prevent Iran from having a nuclear weapon, it just postpones it.”"
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed August 5, 2015
Christopher Murphy, D-CT
"That doesn’t mean Iran’s unacceptable conduct begins and ends with its pursuit of a nuclear weapons program. This is one of the largest state sponsors of terrorism in the world. This is a country that has called for the obliteration of the Jewish State still to this day, chants for “Death to America,” a country that denies basic human rights and political liberties to its own citizens, and executes and imprisons thousands upon thousands of people who disagree with the regime."
Appropriations August 5, 2015
Barbara Mikulski, D-MD
"Whether it is funding our troops or keeping our promises to veterans, we can’t do it without a new budget deal. Freezing Federal spending doesn’t meet the growing, complex needs of the Nation."
Congratulating Ray Hagar August 5, 2015
Dean Heller, R-NV
"Throughout his career, Ray was a true journalist, gaining insight from all sides to convey a thorough picture to his audience. If anything important was going on, you could always count on Ray to have an accurate story ready to share. I will never forget some of the stories that Ray reported on, especially his interaction with former New York Yankee manager, Billy Martin. If that doesn’t illustrate a sincere effort to get the real story, then I don’t know what does. I had the pleasure of working with Ray using an open-door policy and appreciate the relationship we built throughout the years."
