Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Tsa Office Of Inspection Accountability Act Of 2015 September 30, 2015
David Price, D-NC
"The Republican budget announced this spring made no room for the critical investments in infrastructure, housing, research, health care, and education that our country needs to thrive. In fact, it made deeply damaging reductions."
Military Construction, The Department Of Veterans Affairs, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016—Motion To Proceed September 30, 2015
Barbara Mikulski, D-MD
"The bill pending now shows we need a new budget agreement. We need to cancel sequester—these across-the-board draconian cuts—so we can keep our promises to our veterans. Cloture on the motion to proceed is Washington-speak in order to filibuster a debate. The real debate here is whether the Senate will move forward with spartan Republican budget levels or whether we will come up with a new deal that will enable us to lift the cap we have and move ahead to getting a real deal. The Senate passed the bill to keep the government open. Now we need a budget deal that lifts the caps to make sure we have a 50-50 split between defense spending and domestic spending, acknowledging that domestic spending also meets national security needs."
Hire More Heroes Act Of 2015 September 24, 2015
Patty Murray, D-WA
"After all of that, I had hoped Republicans would learn their lesson, especially because once that economy-rattling exercise in futility came to an end, I was proud to work with the Republican budget chairman, Paul Ryan, to do what we shouldn’t have needed a shutdown to get done—negotiate a 2-year bipartisan deal that prevented another government shutdown. It restored critical investments in priorities such as education, research, and defense jobs and showed our families that government can get something done when both sides are willing to come to the table and compromise."
Hire More Heroes Act Of 2015—Continued September 22, 2015
David Perdue, R-GA
"Madam President, I want to thank the majority leader for bringing the Defense appropriations bill to the floor for a vote and remind everyone that the Senate Appropriations Committee has put forward 12 appropriations bills that adhere to the Republican budget and that reflect the priorities of the American people."
Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act—Motion To Proceed September 21, 2015
David Perdue, R-GA
"The Senate Appropriations Committee has put forward 12 appropriations bills that adhere to the Republican budget and that reflect the priorities of the American people. Overall, these bills are under the Budget Control Act caps that were put in place by Congress in 2011 to control spending. More importantly, they better prioritize taxpayer dollars to meet the goals of the American people. For example, these appropriation bills decrease spending on ObamaCare and increase spending for border security. They end the EPA’s waters of the United States rule and stop the Obama administration’s onerous greenhouse gas regulations. They also prohibit the NLRB from changing the rules of the game, such as the ambush election rule and changing the joint-employer relationship, in order to prevent negative impacts to American workers and business."
