Honoring Dr. Erno Daniel February 25, 2015
Lois Capps, D-CA
"Mr. Speaker, today I rise to honor the memory of Dr. Erno Scipiades Daniel who passed away on February 21, 2015. Dr. Daniel was a devoted and renowned physician in our local community of Santa Barbara, California and although he has passed, his legacy will remain with us for years to come. Dr. Daniel was born on December 15, 1946 in Budapest, Hungary and as a child lived through the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. As a teenager he immigrated to the United States with his mother and sister to reunite with his father who left for the U.S. a decade earlier. In 1964, Dr. Daniel not only earned his American citizenship, but also a high school diploma from Santa Barbara High School. He continued his studies at the California Institute of Technology earning an undergraduate degree in chemistry, later receiving a master’s degree and PhD from the University of California, San Diego. An outstanding and hardworking student, Dr. Daniel then graduated from medical school at the University of California, Los Angeles, where he also completed his residency in internal medicine. Dr. Daniel is known as a dedicated and distinguished physician throughout our community where he practiced at the local Sansum Clinic since 1978. Later in his life he also served as the medical director of the Vista del Monte Rehabilitation and Care Center, was on the medical and scientific advisory board of the Center for Cognitive Fitness and Innovative Therapies of Santa Barbara, and devoted his time at Santa Barbara’s Cottage Hospital teaching in the internal medicine residency program. Known for his expertise in geriatric medicine, Dr. Daniel established himself as a leading educator in dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. He traveled across the United States lecturing on these diseases and was the author of a variety of educational sources discussing the topic. Not only was Dr. Daniel a brilliant physician, but also a loving husband, father, and grandfather. Married to the love of his life for over 38 years, there was nothing that brought him greater happiness than his family. His medical legacy and kindness towards others will live on through both his family and the numerous patients whose lives he touched throughout his professional career. He will be greatly missed by his colleagues, patients, family, and the greater Santa Barbara community. I offer my heartfelt condolences to Dr. Daniel’s family and friends, and ask my colleagues to join me in honoring this exemplary citizen and member of the Santa Barbara community."
Keystone Xl Pipeline Act—Continued January 27, 2015
Ted Cruz, R-TX
"Yet for working men and women, union members, their lives have gotten harder and harder and harder. We have, today, the lowest labor-force participation since 1978. Median income in this country has stagnated for two decades."
Immigration November 19, 2014
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"The labor force participation rate has been as low as 62.8 percent in 6 of the last 12 months, but prior to last October had not fallen that low since 1978, which, hypothetically or parenthetically, was during the august—I say sarcastically for those on the left that don’t know sarcasm—days of the American economy during President Carter’s glorious years as President."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 5682, Approval Of The Keystone Xl Pipeline November 13, 2014
Kevin Cramer, R-ND
"Now, the environmental safeguards in the Keystone pipeline—I said it is the most studied pipeline in the history of the world—they are rigorous and they are appropriate. They have been tested and they work. I can attest to that. I toured the Keystone during construction, and I met many of the men and women who worked on the line. Those, Mr. Speaker, are real jobs. Those pipe layers are real workers doing real jobs. The restaurant owners, the hotel owners, the retailers, the subcontractors, those are real jobs, and they should not be diminished by considering them something other than real jobs. We have the lowest workforce participation rate since 1978 in this country. Let’s put people back to work."
Federal Reserve Transparency Act Of 2014 September 16, 2014
Elijah Cummings, D-MD
"I emphasize, however, that the Federal Reserve has been subject to audit since 1978. Further, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which I supported, significantly expanded the authority of the Government Accountability Office to examine the Federal Reserve’s operations."
