Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Our Unconscionable National Debt April 27, 2016
Mike Coffman, R-CO
"Mr. Speaker, on January 20, 2009, the day President Obama took office, the national debt was $10,626,877,048,913.08."
End President Obama’S Lawless And Delusional Refugee Resettlement Program April 27, 2016
Marsha Blackburn, R-TN
"Islamic radicals want to attack America. It is no secret to the American people. However, President Obama and this administration seem not to recognize this."
Unauthorized Spending Accountability Act April 27, 2016
Ted Yoho, R-FL
"Again, it is not just this administration, but I think President Obama, this administration has done us a favor by bringing this to light with the 24,000 regulations that are coming out that are crippling the American economy and businesses. If it is doing that, it is crushing the middle class and all Americans."
Energy And Water Development And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 April 27, 2016
Harry Reid, D-NV
"I was on the Appropriations Committee from the first day I came to the Senate, and I loved my service on the Appropriations Committee. For the last 8 years under President Obama, the Republicans have done everything they could—I am trying to find a pleasant word—to mess up the appropriations process—everything."
Armenian Genocide April 27, 2016
Jim Costa, D-CA
"Several years ago I told the foreign minister of Turkey, who is now the President, that Turkey must recognize the genocide and put this chapter of history to rest. It is extremely frustrating that Turkey continues to ignore what really happened, but in addition to that, it is very disappointing and unacceptable that President Obama failed once again to call the murder of 1.5 million Armenians a genocide—because that is what it was."
