Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act Of 2015 November 19, 2015
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"Mr. Speaker, my Republican friends, unlike the French who had the vision and courage not to scapegoat desperate Syrian refugees fleeing the barbarians that attacked them in Paris, this is a foolish attempt to thwart ISIS terrorists who won’t wait 2 years to be vetted."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 4038, American Security Against Foreign Enemies Act Of 2015 November 19, 2015
Jim McGovern, D-MA
"Mr. Speaker, last night in the Rules Committee, my Republican friends said that all we are doing is responding to public opinion. Our job is to be more than just a political weathervane. We have an obligation to make sure that we state the facts—the real facts. We have an obligation to tell the truth. We have an obligation to help put issues in perspective. And, in short, we have an obligation to lead on issues like this and not be so jittery to pursue policies that we all know are wrong."
The People’S Night November 18, 2015
Trent Franks, R-AZ
"For my Republican friends that say, well, what if we are in the minority, well, we have been in the minority and ObamaCare passed and all of these other things passed because, unfortunately, the willingness of the Senate Democrats today to abuse this filibuster is so prevalent that it stops anything of consequence that matters to this country. Mr. Speaker, that has to change."
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The Environmental Protection Agency November 17, 2015
Barbara Boxer, D-CA
"I find it very hard to comprehend that a majority of this Senate, led by my Republican friends, would side with the special interests above the people who simply want to breathe clean air, who simply want to see us dedicated to the fight against climate change."
Affordable Care Act October 29, 2015
Harry Reid, D-NV
"Again, I say to my friends, the Republicans: Let’s start working together to improve health care. We want to work with you. If there is a problem you see with ObamaCare, let’s work together. We have been able to make some improvements in this law, and we want to make more improvements. We just need cooperation from our Republican friends."
