Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Congress Of Cliffs February 24, 2015
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"This week, we face a Homeland Security cliff. Because our Republican friends have been unable to reach agreement and have held hostage the budget of the Department of Homeland Security, we face a situation where we will either shut down those operations or, hopefully, people will come to their senses and take action. But, again, it is government by cliff."
Homeland Security Funding February 24, 2015
Steny Hoyer, D-MD
"Bring a clean appropriation bill to the floor to fund the Department of Homeland Security, and then, as well, bring a bill to the floor on comprehensive immigration reform or the bill that our Republican friends think is the appropriate bill to fix a broken system, and we will vote and debate on that."
The Economy February 4, 2015
Bernard Sanders, I-VT
"The debate we are going to be having in the Budget Committee—I am the ranking member of the Budget Committee—are two very different philosophies. Our Republican friends believe in more austerity for the middle class and working families. Their goal, over a period of months and years, is to cut Social Security, cut Medicare, cut Medicaid, cut nutrition programs for hungry children, not invest in infrastructure, and then give huge tax breaks for millionaires and billionaires."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 161, Natural Gas Pipeline Permitting Reform Act, And Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 36, Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act January 21, 2015
Jim McGovern, D-MA
"Mr. Speaker, I rise in opposition to this rule. After all the talk by our Republican friends about focusing their efforts on jobs and growing the economy, so far their rhetoric does not match their record."
Keystone Xl Pipeline January 20, 2015
Charles Schumer, D-NY
"Mr. President, this morning I rise in support of two amendments that will make it clear to the American people exactly what this bill to authorize the Keystone XL Pipeline is all about and whom our Republican friends from across the aisle are trying to help."
