Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Tax Extenders December 15, 2015
Steny Hoyer, D-MD
"When we cut taxes without paying for them, there are consequences. Every dollar in lost revenue is a dollar that must be made up somewhere else in the budget. As I said earlier, these unpaid-for tax extenders will set the table for further Republican attempts to slash critical investments in our Nation’s future."
Providing For Congressional Disapproval Of A Rule Submitted By The Environmental Protection Agency—Continued November 17, 2015
Elizabeth Warren, D-MA
"Despite the risks, thousands make the trip every day. Greek Coast Guard officials told us that when refugees see a Coast Guard ship, they may even slash holes in their own rafts just so they will not be turned back."
The Debt And Government Funding October 22, 2015
Harry Reid, D-NV
"To my allies, rest assured that I will continue to oppose Congressman Ryan’s plans to privatize Medicare and slash Social Security. I have said the Ryan budget would lead to a “Kochtopia,” and I believe that to be truer now than ever before."
Energy And Water Development Appropriations Bill October 8, 2015
Dianne Feinstein, D-CA
"Here are some other ways the Energy and Water bill is weakened by low spending caps. I will talk for a moment more about the Office of Science. This is money used to expand research at our National Laboratories, and we are $196 million below the President’s budget request in this bill. Energy efficiency and renewable energy programs have seen an even bigger deficit with funding levels at $773 million below the President’s budget request. This delays the development of vital technologies to reduce energy consumption and slash consumer spending."
Responsibly And Professionally Invigorating Development Act Of 2015 September 25, 2015
Robert Goodlatte, R-VA
"Just last term President Obama stood in this House and promised action to “slash bureaucracy and streamline the permitting process … so we can get more construction workers on the job as fast as possible.”"
