Entry Title Date
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 529, Section 529 College Savings Plans Amendments; Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 5, Student Success Act; And For Other Purposes February 25, 2015
Alcee Hastings, D-FL
"It is not like this debacle caught us by surprise. It was obvious way back when Congress funded the rest of the government for the year but funded DHS for only a few months. Yet each week my Republican friends continue to consider bills that will do nothing and go nowhere. And now, without a road map out of this quagmire, my Republican friends are threatening to double down on their politics by shutting down the agency responsible for our national security, yet somehow we find ourselves talking about completely unrelated measures."
Congress Of Cliffs February 24, 2015
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"This week, we face a Homeland Security cliff. Because our Republican friends have been unable to reach agreement and have held hostage the budget of the Department of Homeland Security, we face a situation where we will either shut down those operations or, hopefully, people will come to their senses and take action. But, again, it is government by cliff."
Homeland Security Funding February 24, 2015
Steny Hoyer, D-MD
"Bring a clean appropriation bill to the floor to fund the Department of Homeland Security, and then, as well, bring a bill to the floor on comprehensive immigration reform or the bill that our Republican friends think is the appropriate bill to fix a broken system, and we will vote and debate on that."
Department Of Homeland Security Funding February 24, 2015
Barbara Boxer, D-CA
"So I say this to my Republican friends. There is a Presidential race coming up. Forget the last one. Get over it. Let’s work together."
Honoring The Naacp February 12, 2015
Charles Rangel, D-NY
"Earlier today, I was sitting on the floor next to one of my Republican friends from the South, and we were talking about Selma. He had recently seen the motion picture, and he was shocked that something like this could have happened."
