Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Social Impact Partnerships To Pay For Results Act June 21, 2016
Sander Levin, D-MI
"Instead, the agenda we have seen from the Republican leadership of this House is to block meaningful improvements or, even worse, to gut programs that now provide opportunities for Americans. Eliminating the Social Services Block Grant, as Republicans propose, will make child care less available, making it harder for low-income parents to go to work. Cutting funding for education and training, as the Republican budget suggests, would have the same effect of blocking a path to work. And repealing the Affordable Care Act, as Republicans have voted repeatedly to do, would make it harder for people to move into work and to move between jobs. Republicans say they support work, but time and time again, they oppose work supports."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 1206, No Hires For The Delinquent Irs Act, And Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 4885, Irs Oversight While Eliminating Spending (Owes) Act Of 2016 April 19, 2016
Alcee Hastings, D-FL
"By the way, the Republican budget proposal, the one they couldn’t get enough votes in their own conference to pass, would have ended the Medicare guarantee for seniors. It would have made $6.5 trillion in cuts, the sharpest ever proposed by the House Committee on the Budget. It would have repealed the Affordable Care Act and dismantled the affordable health care of 20 million Americans."
Congressional Black Caucus—Road To Ruin: House Republicans Fail On The Budget April 18, 2016
Robert Scott, D-VA
"Last week, the House of Representatives failed to pass a budget by the statutorily mandated date of April 15. This failure is unfortunate for our budget process, but perhaps not unfortunate for the American people because no budget is better than the proposed Republican budget that would have been brought to the floor."
No Rate Regulation Of Broadband Internet Access Act April 15, 2016
John Yarmuth, D-KY
"To their credit, Republicans did write a budget and it was approved by their members of the Budget Committee. So why, after months of promises of a return to regular order, would Speaker Ryan refuse to allow a floor vote on the Republican budget, the budget of his own party, the party he leads?"
Raising Consolidated Assets Threshold Under Small Bank Holding Company Policy Statement April 14, 2016
Gwen Moore, D-WI
"Now, we have heard a great deal from the majority about the need to return to regular order, and regular order would require us to pass this bill either today or by tomorrow. So since that bill is not before us, my motion to recommit would give us an opportunity to vote on the Republican budget resolution that was passed out of our committee just last month."
