Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Disability Insurance Trust Fund February 10, 2015
Orrin Hatch, R-UT
"Last year, in a Finance Committee hearing on the DI program, I made clear my willingness to work with anyone in Congress or the administration to examine options and ideas about the DI program before the DI trust fund becomes exhausted. Indeed, I have been trying for years to get the administration to engage on this issue. Unfortunately, to date I have heard nothing from the administration and very little from my friends on the other side of the aisle about this issue. What I have heard is fearmongering about supposed Republican plans to slash benefits or engineer a false crisis or hold beneficiaries hostage. I am not exaggerating; those are the very words they have used."
Keystone Xl Pipeline Act January 29, 2015
Lamar Alexander, R-TN
"We stand on the cusp of a revolution in health care. Advances in molecular medicine will allow us to develop powerful new treatments that can cure or even prevent diseases like Alzheimer’s and cancer. Tomorrow’s high-tech cures can also slash health-care costs and eliminate ineffective treatments. What will it take to realize the potential of the new medicine?"
Nomination Of Robert S. Adler To Be A Commissioner Of The Consumer Product Safety Commission—Continued December 2, 2014
John Barrasso, R-WY
"Here is what is happening. The Environmental Protection Agency has proposed a new rule that would dramatically slash the limits of ground-level ozone. The rule runs 626 pages. Then we add on the appendix—over 500 additional pages."
Senate Transportation Bill July 29, 2014
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"The Senate will be debating limiting funding for this year or sliding into next. They will even debate Senator Lee’s proposal to slash the Federal partnership and turn it back to the States as an unfunded mandate, eliminating the gas tax and, with it, any thoughtful, overall Federal transportation system."
Highway And Transportation Funding Act Of 2014 July 15, 2014
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"There are others in the Republicans whose answer is to just abandon ship, to give up on the Federal partnership, slash the Federal gas tax, and abandon any hope of a national transportation policy and partnership to help States with projects that are multistate in nature or that need to be done whether economic times are bad."
