Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Legislative Program June 18, 2015
Steny Hoyer, D-MD
"In fact, that is what happened; but if you look at your Cut, Cap, and Balance bill—your bill I voted against—the fallback that you suggested was sequestration. That was about a week before Mr. Lew said to Mr. Reid that maybe that will get our Republican friends to support paying the national debt."
American Research And Competitiveness Act Of 2015 May 20, 2015
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"I was listening to my dear friend, the gentleman from Texas, who is managing the bill for our Republican friends, and I was struck for a moment when he talked about the disadvantage vis-a-vis China, how—in a few years—we are going to slip behind China in R&D development."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016—Conference Report May 5, 2015
Charles Schumer, D-NY
"Cap student loan payments? There are 30- and 40-year-olds with huge burdens of debt. They cannot even buy a home. Maybe they even put off having kids. In this budget, our Republican friends are saying we should eliminate and cut programs so we can reduce some of that debt burden. Wow. What world are you folks living in? It sure isn’t the world of reality. It is an ideological house of mirrors. It is a budget document of willful ignorance."
General Leave April 16, 2015
Richard Neal, D-MA
"Yesterday was the 100th day of the 114th Congress. It is 100 days up, 100 days down, and we are no closer to making tax reform a reality. Our Republican friends have wasted 4 months of valuable time and have nothing to show for it. They have whiffed on the 10 permanent tax extender bills that they have passed this year. Not one of these bills has become law nor will any become law. The President has made that clear, and he has issued a veto threat on every one of these bills."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016 March 24, 2015
Bernard Sanders, I-VT
"I believe we need a budget that strengthens health care in America, not decimates it. I believe we need a budget that doesn’t force us to choose between a seriously ill child and a pregnant woman with small children at home. These are false choices which a great nation such as ours should not be forced to make, especially at a time, as Senator Boxer mentioned, when we have the wealthiest 14 people in this country seeing their wealth increase in the last 2 years by $157 billion. Our Republican friends say: No, these people should not be asked to pay more in taxes, but we should balance the budget by taking millions of people off of health insurance. I don’t think anybody in America thinks those priorities make any sense at all."
