Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Secret Science Reform Act Of 2014 November 19, 2014
Jim McGovern, D-MA
"Mr. Chairman, there used to be a time when our Republican friends respected science. There used to be a time when people like Vern Ehlers, a physicist from Michigan, was welcomed in the Republican Conference. Sadly, those times are long gone. If we can’t agree on basic scientific principles, then there isn’t much hope for us to agree on much else."
Immigration Reform November 19, 2014
Barbara Boxer, D-CA
"What is wrong with my Republican friends? Do they not know history or are they just blindly attacking this President because they are annoyed that he got reelected?"
Keystone Pipeline September 18, 2014
Barbara Boxer, D-CA
"While my Republican friends come down and say: Let’s bypass all of this evidence and move forward, that is a dangerous idea. It is a dangerous idea."
Paycheck Fairness Act September 15, 2014
Barbara Boxer, D-CA
"If I were to tell one of my Republican friends on the other side that somebody came up to a woman, knocked her on the head and took half a million dollars from her and stole it, they would be horrified and they would remedy it. They would bring in the law. Well, I am asking them to simply vote for the Paycheck Fairness Act. Just vote for it. Make sure women in this country earn what they deserve to earn."
Bank On Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act—Motion To Proceed— Continued September 11, 2014
Charles Schumer, D-NY
"Many other Republicans have portrayed this sensible amendment as an unparalleled attack on the First Amendment, which, they seem to argue, is absolute. I would say, for instance, to the Senator from Texas and my Republican friends that no amendment is absolute."
