Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
The Israeli Prime Minister’S Address To Congress March 3, 2015
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"In its fight within Iraq, Iran’s proxy Shia militias have gained valuable combat experience on the ground to add to the terrorist tactics of employing IEDs that were perfected against United States forces. The withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq not only led to the abandonment of the Sunni tribes which had allied with us in Anbar Province, it led to a greater reliance upon the Iranians by the Baghdad government."
Health Care September 16, 2014
Christopher Murphy, D-CT
"I get it. This needs to be better. This needs to be perfected. The law still has warts. The Senator sitting in the Presiding Officer’s chair is leading the fight to make this law work even better for people. I look forward to being involved in that conversation. But that is where the conversation should be—perfection, not repeal. And we are reminded again that if Republicans were to win control of this body, at the top of their agenda would be this same old fight—53 different votes in the House of Representatives over the past several years—to repeal the law without any real tangible plan to improve it."
Making Continuing Appropriations For The National Nuclear Security Administration For Fiscal Year 2014 August 1, 2014
Harry Reid, D-NV
"Three thousand rockets have been fired in the last 2\1/2\, 3 weeks—3,000. But for this technology that was perfected by the Israelis, they would be in dire straits. There would be a war in the Middle East that we cannot imagine."
Honoring Dr. Jon Nachison July 16, 2014
Susan Davis, D-CA
"Dr. Jon began Stand Down in 1988 when, as Clinical Director of Psychological Services at the Veterans Village of San Diego (then known as Vietnam Veterans of San Diego), he and the Director at VVSD, Robert Van Keuren, convinced the City of San Diego and other community stakeholders to support a new program to address the needs of homeless veterans Through his perseverance, and despite initial community resistance, San Diego embraced what has become an annual event, incorporating as many as 3500 community volunteers who return faithfully year after year. In tribute to his original creativity, over 200 other communities nationwide have adopted the model that Dr. Jon first introduced and perfected."
Financial Services And General Government Appropriations Act, 2015 July 15, 2014
Denny Heck, D-WA
"This is a referendum on public safety. It follows the exact intent—but is technically perfected—of the earlier amendment that was offered, and I thank the gentleman from the majority for pointing out its technical flaws. They have been corrected."
