Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2015 April 8, 2014
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"Mr. Chairman, this Republican budget would not only freeze us into a downward decline in our infrastructure, it would be the lowest level of nonmilitary discretionary spending that we have seen in generations. It is not going to happen; it shouldn’t happen; and my Republican friends should not be able to get away with assuming that this is a viable and responsible approach."
Paycheck Fairness Act—Motion To Proceed—Continued April 8, 2014
Barbara Boxer, D-CA
"What is the point of all of this? It is to show that the dollars women are not getting could be going into the community, could be making sure their families are taken care of, and would make all the difference in the world. Now, I was a little startled to see some of my Republican friends on the other side—Republican Members of the House—say this is demeaning to women. That is what I got out of a news report—that women don’t need this. Would they have said that about children? Did children need protection against child labor? The answer is yes. Did workers need protection from a 14-hour day when they were being exploited? Yes. Did we need to make sure people in hazardous workplaces, such as chemical companies, have appropriate protective gear? Yes. Did we need to make sure there are fire exits in a crowded factory, after we saw a horrific fire called the Triangle fire? Yes. Now we need to make sure that women get equal pay for equal work."
Sponsoring Americans April 7, 2014
Harry Reid, D-NV
"So I again extend the invitation to my colleagues, if you bear the logo of the Koch brothers, come on down and announce your affiliation openly. The Koch brothers’ agenda is an agenda that is not my agenda, it is not our agenda, but is it your agenda, my Republican friends? If it is, come and tell your constituents that is the case. Let this Nation know where you stand. As for we Democrats, we will continue to defend American families from these oil baron bullies who want nothing more than to enrich themselves. We will continue to oppose their efforts to buy our democracy because we work for America, not just rich Americans."
Affordable Care Act April 3, 2014
Harry Reid, D-NV
"Now Republicans have to face the fact that millions of their own constituents, millions of Republicans are benefiting from health care reform in record numbers. But my Republican friends still insist on nothing short of repeal. So I ask my Republican colleagues, what would they like to repeal? What would repeal look like?"
Save American Workers Act Of 2014 April 3, 2014
Frank Pallone, D-NJ
"But I doubt that means much to my Republican friends because they do not look at the facts. We have added 8.6 million private sector jobs since the law passed, but Republicans simply ignore that. There are fewer part-time workers than there were before the law passed, but that doesn’t get in the way of the Republican talking points."
