Entry Title Date
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 4038, American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act Of 2015 November 19, 2015
Jim McGovern, D-MA
"Mr. Speaker, I thank the gentleman from Georgia for clarifying that point, which now means that there are zero hearings on this bill and no markup. It doesn’t make me feel very good about this process."
American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act Of 2015 November 19, 2015
Steve Cohen, D-TN
"Instead, we are doing this for politics, and we are doing it by continuing to use the pinata of President Barack Hussein Obama. This is an attack on the President, who has a responsibility to defend us, and his team is doing it. This doesn’t add anything to it. It doesn’t make us safer. It is simply a political way to attack the President, and it is wrong."
Local Prioritization Of Land And Water Conservation Fund November 19, 2015
Doug LaMalfa, R-CA
"Mr. Speaker, Chairman Bishop’s bill will rectify this problem and send more funding to the State and local projects that need it and help end the destructive cycle of the Federal Government purchasing and owning land it doesn’t manage, only to have it burn."
Unanimous Consent Request—S. 2303 November 19, 2015
Jack Reed, D-RI
"I think Chairman McCain is headed in exactly the right direction, which is trying to eliminate sequestration. The real answer is to repeal the Budget Control Act because the scope of relief offered by the chairman is certainly broader than just the Department of Defense, but it doesn’t include all the agencies that actually protect us and interfere with our opponents. For example, the Department of Treasury, in terms of trying to suppress terrorist financing, would be subject to sequestration in this legislation; the CDC would be subject to sequestration, even if there were a biological attack—and unfortunately our opponents, particularly terrorists, have talked about such an attack."
Aquadvantage Salmon November 19, 2015
Lisa Murkowski, R-AK
"So how does it get to grow twice as fast? Well, it doesn’t happen naturally. It is not the way Mother Nature orders it. What they do is they start messing with it. This process, which has now been approved by the FDA, is a process that splices genetic material from a Chinook salmon, a king salmon, and it takes that genetic material and it integrates it with a pout fish and an Atlantic salmon. People might know about an Atlantic salmon, a farmed salmon. What is an ocean pout? Let me show my colleagues what an ocean pout is. An ocean pout is basically this eel-type of bottom fish. Those of my colleagues who know their salmon know about the Chinooks, the sockeyes, and the chums, and they know that this isn’t anything close to a salmon, whether it is a wild Alaskan salmon or whether it is a farmed salmon. This is an eel. We are taking a splice from this, and we are taking a splice from an Atlantic salmon, and we are basically splicing this with a Chinook salmon. The resulting organism, this company claims, is going to grow to the size of an Alaskan king salmon in a shorter period of time than that found in nature. Freaky."
