Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Nomination Of Vivek Hallegere Murthy To Be Medical Director In The Regular Corps Of The Public Health Service, Subject To Qualifications Therefor As Provided By Law And Regulations, And To Be… December 15, 2014
Richard Blumenthal, D-CT
"Mr. President, I am very pleased to be here today to speak on behalf of President Obama’s eminently qualified nominee to be Surgeon General, Dr. Vivek Murthy."
Murthy Nomination December 15, 2014
Sherrod Brown, D-OH
"President Obama nominated Dr. Murthy for this position last November. Dr. Murthy’s extensive experience as an entrepreneur, health professional, and public health advocate make him an exceptionally well qualified candidate for Surgeon General. Although I was unable to make it to DC in time to vote to help confirm Dr. Murthy, I would have voted to support his confirmation."
Executive Session December 15, 2014
John Barrasso, R-WY
"This is just another example of President Obama giving someone an important job based solely on their support of the President’s political career—just like his nomination of a soap opera producer to be Ambassador to Hungary or the President’s nomination of a man to be Ambassador to Norway when the person didn’t know the first thing about the country. Of course, both those nominations to be Ambassadors had funneled hundreds of thousands of dollars to the President’s campaigns. Well, those nominations were embarrassing, and so is this nomination to be Surgeon General."
Tribute To Departing Senators December 15, 2014
Harry Reid, D-NV
"I can remember the first time I saw Jacob was right behind us by the Ohio clock. President Obama walked by and that little boy yelled “Obama!” So his little boy loves politics."
Our Unconscionable National Debt December 2, 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."
