Entry Title Date
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016—Continued March 25, 2015
Bernard Sanders, I-VT
"My Republican friends say the deficit is too high. I think they have a point. It is about $483 billion, a very high deficit. But I hope no one denies that a $483 billion deficit is a heck of a lot less than the $1.3 trillion deficit that existed when President Bush left office."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2016 March 25, 2015
Kevin Brady, R-TX
"For my Republican friends who want to brush away any mention of the failed Republican policies of the past that brought us to the verge of economic collapse, I would remind you of the prophesy—of the words—of a great philosopher who said: Those who do not know the past are condemned to repeat it."
Providing For Consideration Of H. Con. Res. 27, Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2016 March 24, 2015
Steny Hoyer, D-MD
"The fact of the matter is, I oppose this rule. I think my Republican friends‘ budget will pass. I understand that."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016—Continued March 24, 2015
Bernard Sanders, I-VT
"Point No. 2: Do we have to cut benefits in order to save Social Security? The answer is, obviously, yes. But we are back to the same old question we debate all day here. Our Republican friends seem absolutely determined not to ask the wealthiest people in this country who are doing phenomenally well to contribute to the well-being of the American people. That is this overall budget. But on the issue of Social Security, what we have to do is raise the cap, which is now at $118,000, and start it at $250,000. Just doing that will enable us to expand Social Security to the year 2065 and expand benefits for lower income seniors."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016 March 24, 2015
Bernard Sanders, I-VT
"I believe we need a budget that strengthens health care in America, not decimates it. I believe we need a budget that doesn’t force us to choose between a seriously ill child and a pregnant woman with small children at home. These are false choices which a great nation such as ours should not be forced to make, especially at a time, as Senator Boxer mentioned, when we have the wealthiest 14 people in this country seeing their wealth increase in the last 2 years by $157 billion. Our Republican friends say: No, these people should not be asked to pay more in taxes, but we should balance the budget by taking millions of people off of health insurance. I don’t think anybody in America thinks those priorities make any sense at all."
