Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016 March 26, 2015
Johnny Isakson, R-GA
"As the Presiding Officer will remember, it was the day Ronald Reagan was sworn in that Jimmy Carter finally made arrangements to get those hostages out of Tehran. They suffered torture, physical abuse, and terror for 444 days. They deserve to be compensated. We deserve to take the money the Iranians have been paid for sanctions and see to it these Americans are compensated for what they suffered in 1979 and 1980."

Keystone Xl Pipeline March 4, 2015
Orrin Hatch, R-UT

Motion To Instruct Conferees On H.R. 240, Department Of Homeland Security Appropriations Act, 2015 February 27, 2015
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"I would humbly submit, Madam Speaker, that that has been going on for the last 6 years. Now, some of it went on during the Bush administration as the President used executive orders and took powers that probably shouldn’t have been his. In talking to people who have been in Congress over the last 35 years or so, they have told me that, whether it was Gerald Ford or Richard Nixon when Goldwater went down Pennsylvania Avenue, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, or George W. Bush, there was a willingness on both sides of the aisle to get in a car together and go down Pennsylvania Avenue and say, “Mr. President, you have usurped far too much power. We can’t let you destroy the Constitution any further. We are taking a stand.” We have missed that opportunity to act responsibly, but, fortunately, it is not yet too late."
Honoring Mr. Randy Swan February 27, 2015
Steven Palazzo, R-MS
