Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016 March 26, 2015
Barbara Boxer, D-CA
"I say to my colleagues that when you put a price on carbon, it works. If you look at my State, we are creating jobs in clean energy. We are balancing our budget better than we ever have before. We have strong support from the people of California. I don’t know why on Earth we would say no to something that leads to prosperity, jobs, and a clean and healthy environment."
A Budget Is A Values Statement March 26, 2015
Matt Cartwright, D-PA
"This Republican budget was something that I could not support because it will have the effect of cutting over 1 million jobs over the next year. Even worse than that, it will turn Medicare into, effectively, a voucher program. If you are on Medicare and you need treatment and they give you a voucher, you had better hope that that voucher covers the services you need; otherwise, you are out of luck."
A Balanced Budget March 26, 2015
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Today, a Senate under new management is delivering that change. The new Senate is prepared to pass a balanced budget with ideas that could boost jobs, raise annual wages by as much as $5,000 per family, and drive economic growth for hard-working Americans. That is what the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office tells us, and it is no wonder."
The 36Th Anniversary Of The Taiwan Relations Act March 26, 2015
André Carson, D-IN
"Taiwan has also developed into an economic powerhouse over the last three decades. Its rapidly growing economy has allowed it to become one of the United States largest trading partners. In fact, Taiwan’s imports of American goods exceeded $36 billion in 2012, a number that continues to grow every year. Many Hoosiers take advantage of this robust trade relationship, helping to build Indiana’s economy and create good paying jobs."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2016 March 26, 2015
Keith Ellison, D-MN
"Dear Representative: As clergy and faith leaders of many faiths, we urge you to support The People’s Budget, introduced by the co-chairs of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, Congressmen Keith Ellison and Rauul Grijalva. The Federal budget should reflect our values and shared priorities, and we believe that this proposal achieves that goal. The teachings of our respective faiths are steeped in the understanding that we have a communal responsibility to care for the most vulnerable in society. Feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, ensuring that all workers receive a fair wage are not simply policy positions: they are sacred obligations. The People’s Budget would create desperately-needed, good paying jobs, repeal sequester and all Budget Control Act spending caps and end Corporate Inversions that allow U.S. companies to avoid paying taxes. The Budget’s proposals invest in veterans, women, communities of color and their families and K-12 education. It expands the Earned Income Tax Credit and unemployment insurance and enhances the social safety net. It reauthorizes the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and implements comprehensive immigration reform, including a pathway to citizenship. In short, The People’s Budget, if passed, would set our nation back on the path toward a fair and healthy economy. These priorities were among those laid out by the Washington, DC Interfaith community in releasing our own Faithful Budget, which lays out how government spending could align with these moral priorities: The “People’s Budget” echoes many of the key proposals outlined in the Faithful Budget, so we’re proud to support it. You can read more about the “People’s Budget” here: Our government should serve all of its citizens. By bolstering the social safety net for those who most need it and prioritizing measures that reduce the growing inequality in our nation, The People’s Budget does just that, and it deserves the support of Congress. We urge you to vote for it when it comes to the House Floor. Thank you for your consideration.http://http://"
