Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Military Construction And Veterans Affairs And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 December 17, 2015
Chris Van Hollen, D-MD
"Since my Republican colleagues probably won’t say it, I will remind everyone of one key fact—when Republicans passed their budget and claimed that it would balance in ten years, they relied on every single dollar of revenue that is being cut today. Let me repeat that, so it is very clear. Every. Single. Dollar. The Republican budget never really balanced in March, and it certainly does not balance now."
Reforming Cfpb Indirect Auto Financing Guidance Act November 19, 2015
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"On balance, however, it is important not to undercut the CFPB as the administration is working hard to protect it. Perennial Republican budget proposals attempt to limit or eliminate funding for the CFPB, and earlier this fall the House Financial Services Committee passed legislation that would replace the CFPB with a politically appointed committee."
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The Environmental Protection Agency November 17, 2015
Barbara Boxer, D-CA
"In the State Department, we could look at ways to enhance security at our embassies and consulates. There is a lot of talk about Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi, but the Republican budget cut embassy security. How about looking at that? Why don’t we look at the Office of Personnel Management and look at ways we could boost our cyber defenses after one of the largest data breaches in our government’s history. The Department of Justice needs to make sure the FBI and local law enforcement have the resources they need to keep our families safe."
Bipartisan Budget Agreement October 28, 2015
Gerald Connolly, D-VA
"Under previous Republican budget proposals, spending on domestic programs would have fallen to its lowest level in 50 years. It is the threat of uncertainty, of those indiscriminate cuts, that has held back our economy."
Requiring Budget Submissions To Provide An Estimate Of The Cost Per Taxpayer Of The Deficit October 20, 2015
John Yarmuth, D-KY
"The House has approved more than $610 billion worth of tax cuts this year, yet none of that lost revenue is accounted for in the Republican budget."
