Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Student Success Act February 25, 2015
Mark Pocan, D-WI
"This bill doesn’t provide real student success, Mr. Chairman."
The Importance Of Local Broadcasters February 25, 2015
Blake Farenthold, R-TX
"You need somebody that has a local news presence. You don’t need somebody that has to bring a satellite truck in from a few hundred miles away and can’t get there immediately. Sure, The Weather Channel will send Jim Cantore down. I think they want to kill him because they send him to all the dangerous locations. But he doesn’t know the community like the local weathercaster."
The Future Forum February 25, 2015
Jared Polis, D-CO
"That is the approach here. If they don’t get their exact way, well, fine, we are not going to keep the Nation safe. I mean, that just doesn’t make sense in any deliberative body, like we all grew up thinking that Congress was the lofty deliberative body."
Department Of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2015—Motion To Proceed—Continued February 25, 2015
Roy Blunt, R-MO
"It goes on. I get to that point, and I don’t know quite how to explain—as I am sure the President doesn’t know how to explain—what he has said and what he has now done."
Serving Our Nation’S Veterans February 25, 2015
Doug LaMalfa, R-CA
"How was the Oakland VA able to arrive at such exact numbers without maintaining records that allowed the OIG to verify the existence of these claims? It just doesn’t make sense, and we have to get to the bottom of these numbers. The VA is required by law to respond to every initial claim they receive, to safeguard Federal records, and to protect private information of the veterans they work with."
