Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Future Forum October 7, 2015
Hakeem Jeffries, D-NY
"You made an important observation earlier in referencing the President’s plan for free community college education. If we can just dwell there for a second, what is important to note is it used to be the case, for prior generations who started the great American middle class after helping to liberate the world coming back home to America after World War II, that if you just had a high school diploma, for many individuals, that was a pathway into the middle class. That is no longer the case in today’s 21st century economy."
Providing For Consideration Of Establishing A Select Investigative Panel Of The Committee On Energy And Commerce October 7, 2015
Gwen Moore, D-WI
"No, Mr. Speaker, you are not trying to find the facts. Instead, this is just another pathway to deny a woman a right to a safe and legal abortion."
Tribute To Eagle Scout Lucas Colosimo October 6, 2015
David Young, R-IA
"To earn the Eagle Scout rank, a Boy Scout is obligated to pass specific tests that are organized by requirements and merit badges, as well as complete an Eagle Project to benefit the community. For his Eagle Scout Service Project, Lucas made and installed an outdoor meditative pathway, which included the Stations of the Cross at St. Thomas More Center in Panora, Iowa."
Mental Health Week October 6, 2015
Marcy Kaptur, D-OH
"When do the elected Representatives of the American people say, “Enough. America can do better. America must do better”? Let’s create a pathway, by passing H.R. 2646, to immediate treatment for those mentally ill citizens dangerous to others and dangerous to themselves."
Executive Session October 5, 2015
Barbara Boxer, D-CA
"I want to say that after Senator Feinstein and I went through one of these horrible experiences with some of our communities, we introduced a bill which would give parents and families of mentally disturbed young people a chance to go to court and intervene so that individual would not have this weaponry, because we knew in the last incident in California where a gunman came down and shot up people sitting in a cafe, that the mother was desperate to try and warn law enforcement that this was going to happen and to intervene, but there was no pathway for her to go."
