Entry Title Date
In Honor Of Dr. Jerry Mcgee’S Career March 25, 2015
Richard Hudson, R-NC
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor Dr. Jerry McGee for his faithful service as President of Wingate University in the 8th Congressional District of North Carolina. When Dr. McGee became President of then Wingate College in 1992, he brought visionary leadership that transformed this educational institution from college to university status. During Dr. McGee’s presidency, Wingate’s enrollment increased more than 125 percent. Under his leadership, Wingate went from a small college to a thriving university. Wingate University has been recognized as one of the best small liberal arts colleges in the Southeast and the premier small private university in North Carolina. As a result of Dr. McGee’s leadership, Wingate University has expanded to new campuses in Charlotte and Henderson, opened 37 new buildings, and refurbished every facility on campus. Wingate opened its School of Pharmacy in 2003, and it now offers six health-care related graduate degrees and seven pre-professional undergraduate health programs. In a ten-year period starting in 1993, the number of Wingate undergraduates pursuing degrees in science or health-care related fields quadrupled. The Wingate University community has expressed its support and praise for Dr. McGee’s leadership through an influx of millions of dollars in gifts and grants for endowments, scholarships, and campus development. During Dr. McGee’s presidency, Wingate University’s endowment increased by 420 percent and its operating budget has nearly doubled. Dr. McGee is a native of Rockingham, North Carolina, and received his Bachelor’s Degree from East Carolina University and a Master’s Degree from Appalachian State University. He went on to receive his Doctoral Degree from Nova Southeastern University. Before being named President of Wingate University, Dr. McGee served as Vice President of Institutional Advancement at Meredith College and Vice President for Development at Furman College. Dr. McGee is actively involved in our local and state community, and he is the recipient of North Carolina’s highest civilian honor, The Order of the Long Leaf Pine, in recognition of his exemplary service to North Carolina. Dr. McGee is also a member of the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame for officiating 404 NCAA Division I college football games, 20 of which were bowl games. It is truly an honor to extend these remarks congratulating my friend Dr. Jerry McGee on his retirement and to thank him for his esteemed service to our community as a visionary educator and leader."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2016 March 25, 2015
Kevin Brady, R-TX
"Last week, at a hearing of the Joint Economic Committee with Chairman Jason Furman of the Council of Economic Advisers, I asked him how would he characterize the 2008 financial meltdown under former President George W. Bush. I asked him: How does the 2008 Bush recession rate?"
Affordable Care Act March 11, 2014
John Cornyn, R-TX
"Remarkably, the administration now wants us to believe it is actually a good thing so many people are reducing their work hours in order to keep their government-mandated health care. For example, chief White House economist Jason Furman has said working less to keep ObamaCare benefits “might be a better choice and a better option than what they had before.”"
Legislative Session February 6, 2014
John Barrasso, R-WY
"Is this the way the Obama administration thinks its health care law is supposed to work? They are actually saying, yes, it is. Jason Furman, the President’s top economist, said the health care law “is helping labor markets, is helping businesses, and is helping jobs.”"
