Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Veterans Employment, Education, And Healthcare Improvement Act February 12, 2016
Betty McCollum, D-MN
"Mr. Speaker, I rise in opposition to The Veterans Employment, Education, and Health Care Improvement Act (H.R. 3016)."
Border To Border Broadband: Better Together February 12, 2016
Rick Nolan, D-MN
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today, along with my Minnesota colleague Congressman Collin Peterson, to recognize the Blandin Foundation and all they do for rural Minnesota, and particularly for their efforts to provide broadband internet service to all Minnesotans. I was honored to recently speak at the `Border to Border Broadband: Better Together’ conference, which was sponsored by the Blandin Foundation and the Minnesota Office of Broadband Development. More than 170 participants came together and agreed on a vision statement for the future of broadband of Minnesota. Today, Congressman Peterson and I rise in strong support of that vision, which states that “All Minnesotans will be able to use convenient, affordable world class broadband networks that enable us to survive and thrive in our communities and across the globe.” The fact is, we need high-speed broadband in our rural communities. It’s a necessity required to help grow our small town rural economy and compete, start new businesses, create new jobs, attract new people and modernize the education and health care services so essential to quality of life. Across our expansive and diverse district the Blandin Foundation is working hard to make sure rural communities have access to world-class high-speed broadband internet. Once again, we would like to thank the Blandin Foundation for all they do to strengthen rural Minnesota through their many important programs, in addition to their work on rural broadband."
Debt Management And Fiscal Responsibility Act Of 2015 February 11, 2016
Steny Hoyer, D-MD
"Mr. Chair, the gentleman from Texas says he gets asked all the time about the national debt. He can give a very simple answer—because the Congress keeps spending money and not paying for it. That is how you incur debt; you buy things and you don’t pay for them. They can be all sorts of things. They can be Social Security, they can be Medicare, they can be battleships, they can be health care, they can be roads, they can be bridges. If you don’t pay for them—it shouldn’t be any surprise—you incur debt."
Veterans Choice Program February 11, 2016
Joe Donnelly, D-IN
"All of our vets should be able to have peace of mind that they will be able to have a good-paying job and access to quality health care. Our veterans should not be burdened with wondering if or when they will be able to schedule a medical appointment."
Black History Month February 11, 2016
Benjamin Cardin, D-MD
"Eliminating disparities in our justice system is critically important. It is just as important to eliminate disparities in the quality of health care available between groups of Americans. In Baltimore, living in certain African-American neighborhoods instead of a White neighborhood, separated by only a few miles, can shorten life expectancy by as much as 30 years—a full generation. That is unacceptable. As a Senator with a longstanding record of working to promote health equity, including my legislation establishing Offices of Minority Health throughout the Department of Health and Human Services and elevating the National Institutes of Health’s National Center on Minority Health and Health Disparities to an Institute, I will say we have made progress in shrinking disparities, but I am far from satisfied."
