Entry Title Date
150Th Anniversary Of The City Of Scranton April 21, 2016
Patrick Toomey, R-PA
"The success of Scranton’s coal, iron, and steel industries served as a catalyst for other important enterprises in the region. Large-scale textile, printing, and food-processing operations, together with increased educational opportunities, all played a vital role in the region’s growth. Between 1860 and 1910, Scranton’s flourishing industrial activity drew thousands of new immigrants."
Providing Internal Revenue Service Publication 17 Free To Taxpayers April 19, 2016
Sander Levin, D-MI
"It urges the IRS to make available printed copies of IRS Publication 17, as has been said—the tax guide for individuals—free of charge to taxpayers. According to the IRS, printing and shipping copies of this publication cost them more than $500,000 last year."
Filling The Supreme Court Vacancy April 7, 2016
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Consider the recent Democratic Supreme Court nominees. One Washington Post columnist hailed the “moderate” record of President Obama’s first pick to the Supreme Court. One New York newspaper proclaimed his second nominee a “pragmatic centrist.” When President Clinton made his Supreme Court nominations, the Post declared one a—you guessed it—“moderate,” and the New York Times practically fell all over itself exalting the “resolutely centrist” style of the other. That last nominee—who said it would be a good idea to abolish Mother’s Day, by the way—was not just firmly centrist, not just decisively centrist, but resolutely centrist, in the Times’ opinion. The records of every one of these Supreme Court Justices have been anything—anything—but moderate or centrist in the years since. They have been resolutely leftwing. But that is the point. “Moderate” isn’t exactly a true descriptor for Democratic Supreme Court nominees; it is just burned into the printing presses of the editorial boards."
Chronicling The President’S Unconstitutional Actions March 7, 2016
Keith Rothfus, R-PA
"As an additional procedure along with the computerization of this information, the Office of the Senate Daily Digest will prepare this information for printing in the Extensions of Remarks section of the Congressional Record on Monday and Wednesday of each week."
Remembering Dr. Marguerita Washington February 29, 2016
Brad Ashford, D-NE
"When the Omaha Star began in 1938, it focused on printing positive news and being a champion for African American progress. When Dr. Washington succeeded her aunt, Mildred Brown, in running the paper, she successfully carried this responsibility for over three decades, making the Omaha Star a national landmark."
