Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Financial Institution Bankruptcy Act Of 2016 April 12, 2016
Robert Goodlatte, R-VA
"Mr. Speaker, I move to suspend the rules and pass the bill (H.R. 2947) to amend title 11 of the United States Code in order to facilitate the resolution of an insolvent financial institution in bankruptcy, as amended."
Wasteful Spending February 11, 2016
Daniel Coats, R-IN
"The next time we are back in session, I will be back down here with more. They just keep pouring in. We keep finding these documents, finding this and that. It is unbelievable that we have put ourselves in this situation and the ineffectiveness is out of control. It is no wonder the public no longer trusts us. If we can’t get to this, how can we ever get to the reforms necessary to stop us from becoming insolvent?"
Puerto Rico December 17, 2015
Richard Blumenthal, D-CT
"The people of Puerto Rico are already suffering because of the uncertainty of their financial situation. That uncertainty in turn is already costing them because the borrowing costs are rising as a disorderly default faces them. To simply provide more money is not the answer. There has to be a structure for orderly and planned payment of debts that are due. Right now, Puerto Rico is insolvent. It can’t pay its debts on time, and that is the definition of default. Bankruptcy is not a safety net. It is not a bailout. It is, in fact, a reckoning."
Every Child Achieves Act Of 2015 November 18, 2015
Harry Reid, D-NV
"Mr. President, one of the Founding Fathers, Benjamin Franklin, said: “You may delay, but time will not.” For far too long Republicans have delayed doing anything to address our Nation’s insolvent transportation system or to address other vitally important infrastructure problems. As Paul Ryan said earlier this year on the House floor:"
Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act Of 2015 October 23, 2015
Frank Pallone, D-NJ
"Repealing the healthcare law would have implications far beyond these Americans who have or will gain insurance. More than 150 million Americans with employer-based insurance would be at risk of higher premiums and lower wages or losing their coverage altogether. Reforms that strengthen Medicare’s long-term finances also would be repealed, likely making Medicare’s Hospital Insurance Trust Fund insolvent earlier."
