Entry Title Date
In Opposition To H.R. 2685, The Department Of Defense Appropriation For Fiscal Year 2016 June 23, 2015
Chris Van Hollen, D-MD
"Moreover, in following the strategy of the Republican budget, this legislation begins the process of locking in sequestration for nondefense programs, which will have a devastating impact on investments critical to the nation. We need to get back to the table to have an honest debate about our budget and renegotiate the funding caps for both defense and nondefense. Only then will we be able to provide the necessary resources for our national security needs and to ensure we keep the nation’s commitments to education, research, infrastructure, and other crucial drivers of economic prosperity."
Votes On National Defense Authorization Act And Motion To Proceed To Defense Appropriations Act June 18, 2015
Barbara Mikulski, D-MD
"However, the Republican Budget uses two sets of rules—first, pretend funding for basic, essential military operations—things that are supposed to be in the base budget—taken from the Overseas Contingency Operations, OCO, account that was created for funding wars. This gimmick allows $38 billion of extra defense spending by evading the budget caps. The second rule the Republicans are using is saying: We are going to apply the sequester budget constraints to the rest of the Federal agencies. That is not acceptable, but we can fix it."
Intelligence Authorization Act For Fiscal Year 2016 June 17, 2015
Chris Van Hollen, D-MD
"However, the bill also continues Republican-led efforts to lock in sequestration and, as a result, fails to authorize sufficient funds for important intelligence community priorities. Instead, the bill uses OCO funding in ways that leaders of both parties have made clear are inappropriate. Just last year, House Republicans criticized the abuse of the OCO loophole in their budget report, stating that it “undermines the integrity of the budget process.” Moreover, in following the strategy of the Republican budget, this legislation begins the process of locking in sequestration for nondefense programs, which will have a devastating impact on investments critical to the nation."
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."
