Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed— Continued August 4, 2015
Sheldon Whitehouse, D-RI
"But our Republican friends can’t acknowledge that. They have even said these NASA scientists are in on a hoax. Can you imagine anything more demeaning to the people who put a rover on Mars and shot this picture of Pluto than to say: Oh, they do not know what they are talking about. They are in on a hoax. Forget about it. That is just not true."
Prohibiting Federal Funding Of Planned Parenthood Federation Of America—Motion To Proceed—Continued July 30, 2015
Christopher Murphy, D-CT
"I hope we can spend some time after this vote next week—that even my Republican friends in the Republican Presidential primary will admit is a showboat—and get down to the real business of passing a budget that respects the values and priorities of this country, that keeps our government operational, and separates, to the best we can, the business we do on the Senate floor from the business of sorting out who is going to be the next Republican nominee for President."
Hire More Heroes Act Of 2015 July 28, 2015
James Inhofe, R-OK
"Then along came the $700 billion bailout, and a lot of my Republican friends voted for that."
Hire More Heroes Act Of 2015 July 24, 2015
Harry Reid, D-NV
"I hope the Speaker of the House will change course and recommit his party to working with us. Three months, surely my Republican friends must realize, is more than enough time for us to do our jobs."
Export-Import Bank July 16, 2015
Harry Reid, D-NV
"Our ability to sell to other countries our products has been seriously overwhelmed. It is so sad. And it really is sad. Other countries have these export-import banks. There is some mindset from my Republican friends that we can’t do anything that government is involved in. But if we are going to be competitive in the world, we have to have a program such as the Export-Import Bank. It has been around for a long time and has been very successful. If we don’t do this, for example, the airplanes we build in the State of Washington will actually come to a screeching halt. They can sell to America but not to other countries."
