Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2015 April 10, 2014
Chris Van Hollen, D-MD
"Mr. Chairman, what we know is old and stale and doesn’t work is trickle down economics. The idea you just give the folks at the very top a little bit bigger tax break and somehow it is going to benefit everybody else didn’t work and made the deficit go up."
Republican Budget Unmitigated Disaster April 10, 2014
Mark Takano, D-CA
"Mr. Speaker, the Republican budget put together by Chairman Ryan is one of the world’s worst vanity projects. It doesn’t actually help the American people. It simply fulfills Mr. Ryan’s ideological fantasies."
Nomination Of Michelle T. Friedland To Be United States Circuit Judge For The Ninth Circuit—Resumed April 10, 2014
John Cornyn, R-TX
"So what Debbie Smith has asked me and I daresay the majority leader and all of us to do is to take up this piece of the bill. We can do that, and I think we will have done a good thing today. If we can’t take up the Justice for All Act because of other concerns people have—this shouldn’t be a zero sum game. We could pass the Debbie Smith Act today, and then we could take up the Justice for All Act when we return following the recess. It doesn’t have to be a zero sum game."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2015 April 10, 2014
Xavier Becerra, D-CA
"Our Democratic budget does that; the Republican budget doesn’t. And as a result, we give up, through the Republican budget, an opportunity to reduce our deficits by close to a trillion dollars over the next couple of decades. We give up the opportunity to create close to 3.5 million jobs over the next 10 to 20 years by doing immigration reform, and we give up the chance to strengthen Social Security by doing immigration reform. The Democratic budget makes those investments."
War On Conservatives April 10, 2014
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"It is amazing some of the efforts made to rewrite history and cast things in a light that doesn’t exist. So as some people in the administration step up the continued trashing of conservatives in America—we have already seen the assault on conservative groups by the IRS, that does need a special prosecutor, clearly—the assault on people with whom some in the administration disagree, they can’t answer questions, and so they make personal attacks."
