Entry Title Date
Our Unconscionable National Debt November 19, 2015
Mike Coffman, R-CO
"Today, it is $18,670,014,021,513.75. We’ve added $8,043,136,972,600.67 to our debt in 6 years. This is over $8 trillion in debt our nation, our economy, and our children could have avoided with a balanced budget amendment."
Fed Oversight Reform And Modernization Act Of 2015 November 19, 2015
Jeb Hensarling, R-TX
"If we want to help our seniors, what we need is a monetary policy that is more predictable, that is more rules based, which is exactly what the FORM Act does. The American people want a healthier economy. They want a government that is transparent and accountable to them, and that includes the Federal Reserve. They cannot continue to cloak their prudential regulatory policies behind their monetary policies. We don’t need our central bankers to become our central planners, but we need a monetary policy that works for seniors."
Celebrating The Avon Chamber Of Commerce’S 50Th Anniversary November 19, 2015
Elizabeth Esty, D-CT
"We here in the State of Connecticut are proud of our highly-skilled workforce, and Avon is an ideal location for companies who want to take advantage of this strength. Organizations like the Avon Chamber of Commerce help businesses continue to grow, so that Connecticut’s economy is vibrant and competitive for years to come. The Farmington Valley owes much to the Avon Chamber, and Connecticut is a better state thanks to their advocacy. I look forward to continuing to work with the chamber as they continue to thrive and welcome more businesses into the region."
Budget Agreement November 19, 2015
Christopher Coons, D-DE
"As the ranking member of the Appropriations financial services subcommittee, I want to be clear that it is particularly unacceptable to me to use the appropriations process to roll back many of the critical Wall Street reforms put in place over 5 years ago in response to the financial crisis that was devastating to the economy, to families, and to businesses throughout Delaware and the country. If the majority wants to bring a bill to the floor that rolls back some of the key consumer protections put in place in the Dodd-Frank bill, then let’s have that debate. Frankly, it is a debate we at times have been engaged in on large- and small-scale issues."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions November 19, 2015
Jeanne Shaheen, D-NH
"Finally, I think what has happened in Bosnia and Herzegovina with the Dayton Accords—for all of its flaws, it is a model we can look to as we are looking at the challenges we face in Syria. The Bosniaks, the Serbs, the Croatians, the Muslims, the Orthodox Christians, and the Roman Catholics all came together and they agreed to end the conflict in Bosnia. They agreed to try to build a successful democracy and a strong economy to create a successful multiethnic, multisectarian state under very difficult circumstances. And while we need to continue to look at how the Dayton Accords should change, it is still a milestone in what happened with that conflict and I think serves as a model for so many other regions in the world where there is conflict."
