Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016 March 26, 2015
Ron Wyden, D-OR
"President Obama favors lowering this tax rate, and I believe the reason he does is because he thinks this will provide another opportunity to reduce offshoring. I support the amendment."
Our Unconscionable National Debt March 26, 2015
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."
Boko Haram March 26, 2015
Frederica Wilson, D-FL
"Mr. Speaker, just this morning, ABC News reported that Boko Haram is using hundreds of civilians as human shields, and the terrorist group reportedly abducted another 500 women and children just 48 hours before the Nigerian Presidential elections. Nigerian officials remain very concerned about Boko Haram’s impact on Saturday’s Presidential election. President Obama issued a statement calling for calm in Nigeria."
A Balanced Budget March 26, 2015
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"The alternative on offer was the budget we voted on Tuesday from President Obama. Someone called it the left’s dream budget. But that dream ended up being so unserious and embarrassing that not more than a single Democrat could muster the courage to vote for it. In a way, it is hard to blame our friends. It would be pretty embarrassing and insensitive to support a budget that contains trillions more in overspending, almost $2 trillion more in taxes, and hardly any serious ideas to save the programs for the most vulnerable."
The Week In Review March 26, 2015
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"Had he been around in, say, 1823, speaking for President Obama back then, had he been President then, if he used this same reasoning, he would have been saying: it is time for the occupation of our Thirteen Colonies to stop, and we give all the land back to England. This is no time for the Thirteen Colonies to continue to occupy what we are calling the United States."
