Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
50Th Anniversary Of Head Start May 21, 2015
Barbara Lee, D-CA
"Yet nearly 57,000 children across the country have lost access because of draconian sequester cuts, and the 2016 Republican budget makes it worse by removing another 35,000 children from the program, including 4,500 from my home State of California."
Head Start 50Th Anniversary May 20, 2015
James Clyburn, D-SC
"Unfortunately, the future of Head Start today stands in grave peril due to the misplaced priorities of the Republican budget which cuts $759 billion from nondefense discretionary funds and will result in 35,000 fewer children participating in Head Start."
National Defense Authorization Act For Fiscal Year 2016 May 20, 2015
Chris Van Hollen, D-MD
"Consistent with the Republican budget, this year’s defense authorization bill uses the Overseas Contingency Operations budget as a backdoor loophole to get around sequestration by funding $38 billion of the Pentagon’s regular base budget activities with war funds—a blatant abuse of the budget process. Just one year ago, House Republicans criticized the abuse of the OCO loophole in their budget report, stating that it “undermines the integrity of the budget process” and that the Budget Committee would “oppose increases above the levels the Administration and our military commanders say are needed to carry out operations unless it can be clearly demonstrated that such amounts are war-related.”"
American Research And Competitiveness Act Of 2015 May 20, 2015
Lloyd Doggett, D-TX
"Indeed, the Republican budget makes significant cuts to research, including hundreds fewer research grants that the President sought at both the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation. I think we need more than another Ice Bucket Challenge to fund research for cures for cancer and diabetes, ALS, AIDS, and the like. We need the resources to tackle problems that are touching every family in this country."
Transportation Infrastructure May 20, 2015
Bonnie Watson Coleman, D-NJ
"Unfortunately, instead of the People’s Budget, Congress passed a far more dangerous Republican budget; and unfortunately, our infrastructure continues to crumble. Our roads are frequently congested, limiting productivity for millions of American workers; our airports appear run down compared to their competitors in Europe and Asia; and rail speeds around the world have long eclipsed even Amtrak’s fastest trains."
