Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Our Unconscionable National Debt September 17, 2014
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."
Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2015 September 17, 2014
Bill Johnson, R-OH
"Madam Speaker, much, much more must be done. I am concerned that the President isn’t fully listening to his military leaders. Reports have emerged indicating that President Obama did not choose to use the recommendations that our military leaders gave him."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions September 17, 2014
Tim Kaine, D-VA
"Mr. President, I am introducing a resolution to provide President Obama with authority in the multinational mission to defeat the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, ISIL, which is meant to reinforce the President’s strategy, as well as set key limitations that I hope will be included in final authorizing language for broader Congressional consideration."
Congress And The Use Of Military Force September 17, 2014
Gerald Connolly, D-VA
"This isn’t President Obama trampling on the Constitution. This is Congress, in a long 60-year history, of winking and blinking about our responsibility because we don’t want to bear it. But on matters of war and peace, we either live up to our constitutional responsibility, which is quite clear, or we go on a 7-week recess."
Health Care September 17, 2014
Roy Blunt, R-MO
"A GAO report released on Tuesday confirmed that people who had had concerns about this bill because it would use Federal funding for the first time to lead to taxpayer-funded abortions—and many of my colleagues in the House voted for this and voted for it only because President Obama repeatedly promised that the health care law would not lead to American tax dollars being used for this purpose. It is a longstanding policy. It is a policy that Americans have strongly supported for a long time. Unfortunately, this new report by the government itself indicates that was one more government promise not kept."
