Entry Title Date
Remembering Carl E. Sanders November 19, 2014
Phil Gingrey, R-GA
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to celebrate the life of former Governor of Georgia and Chairman Emeritus of Troutman Sanders LLP, Carl E. Sanders, and thank him for his service to country and community."
Honoring The Congressional Staff Of Georgia’S 12Th Congressional District November 19, 2014
John Barrow, D-GA
"Madam Speaker, I don’t know if this will be the last time I address this House, but I can think of no more appropriate subject for such an occasion than to honor those who have worked with me over the last 10 years serving the people of Georgia‘s 12th Congressional District."
The Dedication Of A Bust Of Vaclav Havel In The United States Capitol November 19, 2014
Steny Hoyer, D-MD
"This has been on full display over the past year in Ukraine, where one year ago courageous protesters gathered in Kiev’s Maidan Square to reject Putin’s attempts to pull their country closer into Russia’s orbit and away from greater democracy and economic opportunity. The Maidan protests and the regime’s violent response to them ushered in a new beginning for Ukrainian democracy, with free and fair elections held earlier this year. Unwilling to accept the decision the Ukrainian people have made about the future they want for their own nation, Putin’s Russia has violated Ukraine’s sovereignty by illegally annexing Crimea as well as sending troops and equipment across the border into southeastern Ukraine, much as it has done in the nation of Georgia."
President’S Health Care Law November 19, 2014
John Barrasso, R-WY
"In Minneapolis rates are going up almost 19 percent, and that is just for the premiums. For many people their copays are going up and their deductibles are going up as well. In some parts of Georgia 70 percent of the plans sold on the exchange have deductibles of at least $2,500. Is that affordable for people? Millions of Americans will be paying more in premiums as well as more out of their pocket—millions of people such as Bob Sorey, the real estate broker in Tennessee, who, as he said, just can’t absorb the cost."
Honoring Lieutenant Colonel Michael D. Miralles November 14, 2014
Phil Gingrey, R-GA
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor Lieutenant Colonel Michael D. Miralles and to recognize his lifetime of service to our country. On April 1, Lt. Colonel Miralles retired from the United States Air Force Reserve after twenty-nine years of sacrifice and service to this great nation. Prior to his service as an American airman, Lt. Colonel Miralles was as a Petroleum Engineer and Polymer Chemist in Oil-Field Exploration and Drilling Operations. In 1985 he graduated from OTS and has since served our country in many different capacities. In his last assignment, he worked as the Deputy Commander of the 403rd Maintenance Group, Air Force Reserve Command, Keesler Air Force Base, Mississippi. For his distinguished leadership and meritorious service throughout his career, Lt. Colonel Miralles has been awarded the Bronze Star, the Meritorious Service Medal, the Air Force Commendation Medal with one oak leaf cluster, the Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, and the Armed Forces Reserve Medal with 2 M devices and Bronze Hourglass device. Mr. Speaker, on behalf of the 11th District of Georgia, I extend my deepest thanks to Lt. Colonel Miralles for devoting his life to upholding the Constitution of the United States and to the protection of its citizens. I wish him a happy—and well-deserved—retirement."
