Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Death Tax Repeal Act Of 2015 April 16, 2015
Jim McDermott, D-WA
"Although the Republican budget holds that we must make draconian cuts to domestic programs in the name of fiscal prudence, cuts that harm the elderly, the working poor, the infirm, the middle class, the Republican leadership lauds a bill that would provide inequality in our Nation and give an average tax break of $3 million to the most secure."
General Leave April 16, 2015
Kevin Brady, R-TX
"I am at a loss to understand why the Republican leadership is adding $42 billion to our deficit to permanently extend a provision it thinks should be repealed. This bill coupled with the next bill under consideration would add over $300 billion to our deficit, almost half of the amount the Republican budget said we must cut from domestic discretionary spending."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016 April 15, 2015
Bernard Sanders, I-VT
"I certainly agree with Senator Enzi that we need a government that is accountable, that we need to get rid of waste in government, and that we need to get rid of duplicative programs. I don’t think there is any debate on that. I look forward to working with Senator Enzi and others to make that happen. However, the Republican budget is far, far more than that."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016—Continued April 15, 2015
Bernard Sanders, I-VT
"Mr. President, as I mentioned earlier, I happen to believe the Republican budget we will be discussing today moves us in exactly the wrong direction. At a time when the middle class is in decline and the gap between the very rich and everybody else is growing wider, what the Republican budget does is make ferocious attacks on programs desperately depended upon by working families while at the same time providing outrageous tax breaks to the very wealthiest of the wealthy. That makes no sense to me at all."
Human Trafficking Legislation And The Budget April 15, 2015
Harry Reid, D-NV
"Let’s take a look at what the Senate Republican budget does. Remember, this is their statement of core values, and their war on the average American from Reno to Las Vegas to Chicago to Louisville—it doesn’t matter where you go—is an attack on the middle class. Why do I say that? It deprives more than 16 million Americans of health coverage. That is the first thing their budget does. It devastates Medicare. It makes Medicare something we would not recognize, and they do it, of course, at the expense of America’s seniors. It cuts Medicaid and hurts millions of families who are not able to pay for their care."
