Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
American Energy Solutions For Lower Costs And More American Jobs Act September 18, 2014
Hakeem Jeffries, D-NY
"This House majority, Mr. Speaker, has been busy enacting a reckless Republican budget: $137 billion in cuts to nutritional assistance to the American people, many of whom have gone hungry; $260 billion in cuts to higher education; $732 billion in cuts to Medicaid—enacted by this House majority in a reckless Republican budget."
Progressive Caucus July 24, 2014
Mark Pocan, D-WI
"Representative Lee and I and Representative Moore all serve on the Budget Committee, and we have had a lot of time to see the Paul Ryan Republican budget."
The Republican Budget July 24, 2014
John Yarmuth, D-KY
"Two-thirds of the cuts in the Republican budget come from our social safety net, including Medicaid, nutrition assistance, and education. Their budget ends the Medicare guarantee and raises prescription drug costs for seniors."
Student And Family Tax Simplification Act July 24, 2014
Sander Levin, D-MI
"On the Republican chopping block, unemployment insurance blocked for 3 million Americans. Food assistance for low-income Americans would be cut by nearly 20 percent in the Ryan Republican budget, and a minimum wage increase hasn’t occurred in 5 years, yet Republicans refuse to provide an increase. Medical assistance for Americans would be slashed by the Ryan Republican budget, with funding for Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program cut to the tune of 26 percent within 10 years. Social Services Block Grants, which provide flexible funds for States to help vulnerable populations, are eliminated under the Ryan Republican budget. Pell grants would be reduced by 400,000 under the Ryan Republican budget. Job training funding was targeted for deep cuts in the 2011 spending bill the House Republicans passed, and housing assistance would end for 800,000 low-income families in the Transportation-HUD Appropriations bill House Republicans just passed."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 4719, Fighting Hunger Incentive Act Of 2014 July 17, 2014
Alcee Hastings, D-FL
"The Administration supports measures that enhance non- profits, philanthropic organizations, and faith-based and other community organizations in their many roles, including as a safety net for those most in need, an economic engine for job creation, a tool for environmental conservation that encourages land protections for current and future generations, and an incubator of innovation to foster solutions to some of the Nation’s toughest challenges. The President’s Budget includes a number of proposals that would enhance and simplify charitable giving incentives for many individuals. However, the Administration strongly opposes House passage of H.R. 4719, which would permanently extend three current provisions that offer enhanced tax breaks for certain donations and add another two similar provisions without offsetting the cost. If this same, unprecedented approach of making certain traditional tax extenders permanent without offsets were followed for the other traditional tax extenders, it would add $500 billion or more to deficits over the next ten years, wiping out most of the deficit reduction achieved through the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2013. Just two months ago, House Republicans themselves passed a budget resolution that required offsetting any tax extenders that were made permanent with other revenue measures. As with other similar proposals, Republicans are imposing a double standard by adding to the deficit to continue and create tax breaks that primarily benefit higher-income individuals, while insisting on offsetting the proposed extension of emergency unemployment benefits and the discretionary funding increases for defense and non-defense priorities such as research and development in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013. House Republicans also are making clear their priorities by rushing to make these tax cuts permanent without offsets even as the House Republican budget resolution calls for raising taxes on 26 million working families and students by letting important improvements to the Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, and education tax credits expire. The Administration wants to work with Congress to make progress on measures that strengthen America’s social sector. However, H.R. 4719 represents the wrong approach. If the President were presented with H.R. 4719, his senior advisors would recommend that he veto the bill."
