Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Legislative Program July 25, 2014
Steny Hoyer, D-MD
"I know what the schedule is for next week, so he doesn’t need to repeat that for me—and I thank him very much—but does the majority leader have any idea whether we are going to consider the Export-Import Bank before the election?"
The Amnesty President July 25, 2014
Ted Poe, R-TX
"The amnesty President again is going to go his own way. Obviously, he doesn’t understand the consequences of his newly proposed executive mandate made from behind the White House fences."
Port Of Savannah July 25, 2014
Rob Woodall, R-GA
"Mr. Speaker, the world is changing. The world is a dynamic place. Again, it doesn’t take much to see that what was the amazing engineering marvel that was the Panama Canal has been set aside now as being too old, too antiquated, and too small to handle modern needs. We are now talking about this Panamax canal that is going to bring ships the size of which you and I have never seen, Mr. Speaker, to American ports in record time, saving fuel, making a difference to the energy economy, and making a difference to price for American consumers."
Home Rule For The District Of Columbia July 25, 2014
Eleanor Norton, D-DC
"Of course, if one looks at why the District budget is over here, the American people would be, I think, pleased to know that no one, not one Member looks at the budget. They recognize that they are incompetent to do so, not because they are inherently incompetent, but because nobody would want to look at somebody else’s budget if they have not had the opportunity to go through what they have gone through, and that is all of the hearings and the rest of it. So Congress doesn’t care about the budget. They have the budget here in order to use it as a vehicle to overturn local laws, and that is what has happened with the gun amendment and with the marijuana decriminalization amendment."
Progressive Caucus July 24, 2014
Mark Pocan, D-WI
"As Representative Gwen Moore from Milwaukee so eloquently put forth, expanding tax credits for childless workers is something through the earned income tax credit we would support except that, perhaps, the Ryan proposal doesn’t quite fund it in a way that makes sense."
