Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
American Leadership And Syria February 4, 2016
Lindsey Graham, R-SC
"This deal with Iran is a nightmare for the region. You give the Iranian Ayatollah a pathway to a bomb, even if he doesn’t cheat, a missile to deliver the bomb, and money to pay for it all. Now they want to take the same negotiating team into Syria and lock into place Bashar Assad’s regime, which has slaughtered the Syrian people, give the Russians and Iranians a foothold in Damascus through negotiations that they could never have dreamed of a year ago."
Nuclear Agreement With Iran February 4, 2016
Christopher Coons, D-DE
"Simply put, before this agreement—before the JCPOA—Iran could have converted its uranium or its plutonium into material useful for a nuclear weapon. On implementation day, Iran disabled its Arak reactor. They filled the core of that reactor with concrete, shutting off the so-called plutonium pathway to a nuclear weapon."
Palestinian Terrorists Remain Unprosecuted February 2, 2016
Jeff Fortenberry, R-NE
"So, Madam Speaker, that is really what I wanted to say to you today. I am proud of these Nebraskans who have continued to demonstrate a better pathway for America in public servants and in military heroes, such as Joseph Lemm, who gave his life for his country, in the young people back home who are deciding to tackle systemic childhood poverty and hunger, and in the students who trekked all this way in hazardous conditions to stand in defense of vulnerable persons."
Energy Policy Modernization Act Of 2015 February 1, 2016
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"Mr. President, the Senate is currently considering a bipartisan energy bill that could lead America on a pathway to rebuilding our Nation’s economy in this century. It has been 9 years since we passed an energy bill and a lot of things have changed."
Energy Policy Modernization Act Of 2015—Continued January 27, 2016
Cory Booker, D-NJ
"In that region, we now have the spectre of a nuclear-armed Iran pulled back, and we have the ability of moving forward with greater diplomacy. In order to get there, some pretty extraordinary things have happened. We have now effectively blocked Iran’s uranium pathway to a bomb, with 12 tons of enriched stockpile—virtually all of its stockpile—shipped out of its country, and two-third of Iran’s centrifuges have been taken offline. So there has been a significant removal of Iran’s pathway."
