Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Funding The Federal Government August 5, 2015
Harry Reid, D-NV
"There is always a new reason—some grievance from the partisans at FOX News, some complaint from whiners on talk radio, some attack from radicals in the tea party. It makes one wonder: What will be next? Will the Republicans again use shutdown extortion to try to repeal ObamaCare or to attack immigrants or to cut Social Security or to privatize Medicare?"
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed August 5, 2015
John Cornyn, R-TX
"Some of these are issues that particularly hit home in Texas, things like immigration, Supreme Court nominations, and the ObamaCare debate. Not only did Russ bring valuable policy perspectives to that role as legislative director, but he was also able to help on the communications side because he understands it is not just important for us to do a decent job—or at least to the best of our ability—it is important to be able to communicate what you are doing in a way so the American people, and in particular the people of Texas, can understand. Yet he also understood the politics that go along sometimes with the job we have in the Senate."
Prohibiting Federal Funding Of Planned Parenthood Federation Of America—Motion To Proceed August 3, 2015
Barbara Boxer, D-CA
"That woman could have died, and you say: Go to community health care centers. First, I find it ironic because they were set up in ObamaCare and all of you voted no on ObamaCare. We expanded community health centers."
Planned Parenthood August 3, 2015
Harry Reid, D-NV
"He and other Republicans believe, I guess, that clinics like community health centers will pick up the slack should Planned Parenthood be defunded. That is simply not true. I am a strong supporter of community health centers. It is part of ObamaCare, the Affordable Care Act, because I believe in community health centers. We put billions of dollars in that bill, and during the years it has been in existence, it has done so much to provide help for community health centers, but we still have far, far much to do. There are not enough community health centers, even with what we have done, to increase their ability to meet the current demand. To throw in a few more women who have been knocked out of Planned Parenthood—and “a few” is a pejorative term; it would be millions of women—is wrong."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions August 3, 2015
Susan Collins, R-ME
"So the more targeted approach proposed by Senator Kirk and me accomplishes three important goals: First, it would not cause women served by Planned Parenthood clinics that do not engage in these reprehensible fetal tissue sales to lose their health care provider for basic services like family planning and cancer screening. After all, many of us have been critical of ObamaCare because it has forced families in this country to give up the doctor of their choice. Well, that is what this amendment would do. It would require women and other patients to find alternative health care providers, even if their Planned Parenthood clinic has done nothing wrong and is not engaged in the reprehensible sale of fetal tissue. How is that fair? How is that a targeted approach?"
