Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016—Conference Report—Continued June 28, 2016
Bernard Sanders, I-VT
"I ask my friend from New Jersey—there is a very strong difference of opinion in the Senate and in the House about economic issues. Many of our Republican friends think trickle-down economics—giving tax breaks to the wealthy, cutting Social Security, cutting Medicare, cutting Medicaid, cutting education—is the way they would like to see our country move forward. Does my friend from New Jersey have any doubt, if you have a financial control board dominated by four Republicans, that is exactly the type of philosophy that will be imposed on the people of Puerto Rico?"
Irs Oversight While Eliminating Spending (Owes) Act Of 2016 April 20, 2016
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"I am glad that our Republican friends were embarrassed because of their continued cuts to the IRS budget and the service got so bad that they restored almost $300 million."
Filling The Supreme Court Vacancy February 29, 2016
Thomas Carper, D-DE
"The last thing I would say is that the American people are frustrated with us and our inability to get things done. Sometimes I can understand why they would feel that way. We have a great opportunity to get something done. I hope the President will nominate a terrific candidate, and I hope our Republican friends will at least have the courtesy of meeting with that man or woman, give him or her a chance to present themselves and explain what they are about, have a hearing on that person, and then give them the honor of a vote. I think they deserve that."
Student Loan Debt February 4, 2016
Patty Murray, D-WA
"It has been just one week since I asked students and families to submit their stories online to us, and I want to hear from many more because I know there are so many people out there who are struggling. But I must admit, I was taken aback by the constant theme that showed up in so many of the experiences that I have seen so far. I heard story after story from people who said they felt hopeless. They feel buried under student debt, and they see no end in sight. It shouldn’t have to be this way. Democrats are offering solutions, and I sincerely hope our Republican friends will join us."
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The Environmental Protection Agency November 17, 2015
Barbara Boxer, D-CA
"We have to take reasonable steps to reduce carbon pollution, as with the Clean Power Plan. And all we see from our Republican friends, God bless them—I am very close with a lot of them—is attack after attack after attack on the environment, attacks against the Clean Water Act, attacks against the Clean Air Act, attacks against the Safe Drinking Water Act."
