Entry Title Date
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2016 March 25, 2015
Lucille Roybal-Allard, D-CA
"When you compare these two budgets, the choice becomes clear. The Democratic budget will grow our economy and create jobs. The Republican budget will slash our economic growth by 2.5 percent and cost our nation nearly three million jobs in 2017 alone."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016 March 25, 2015
Tom Udall, D-NM
"They would cut the earned-income tax credit, slash Medicare and Medicaid, child care, Head Start, education, public safety, and law enforcement."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016—Continued March 25, 2015
Jon Tester, D-MT
"While this rhetoric about passing a balanced budget sounds good—and I do support a balanced budget—the reality is this budget doesn’t cut it. It does not balance. Why? Because this budget relies on gimmicks such as using the Overseas Contingency Fund, which is supposed to fund the war on Afghanistan and action against ISIS but instead has become a slush fund for the Department of Defense. This budget assumes hundreds of billions of dollars in “unallocated cuts.” That is great messaging. We are going to slash the budget by hundreds of billions of dollars, but we are not going to tell you where we cut it out. We can talk about cuts, but when it gets to specifics—the real tough decisions—we are not going to talk about those. We are not even going to tell you where they are. It is not only secretive, but it is bad policy, and these kinds of smoke and mirrors are the worst Washington has to offer."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2016 March 24, 2015
Gerald Connolly, D-VA
"This Republican budget would slash R&D funding by 15 percent, to its lowest level since 2002. That is a retreat from America’s role as the global innovation leader and, essentially, cedes the playing field to our international competition."
Providing For Consideration Of H. Con. Res. 27, Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2016 March 24, 2015
Louise Slaughter, D-NY
"Mr. Speaker, let’s take a different course. Let’s grow the economy from the middle class out, not try to hope something will trickle down on it. Let’s fix our crumbling roads and bridges, and let’s invest in our kids and make it easier to go to college, not harder. Let’s respect the contribution of our Nation’s seniors and make certain that they have the stability that they need in their health care to make financial decisions with some degree of certainty. We could do that by adopting the Democratic alternative. And while my colleagues in the minority might be getting fatigued saying this over and over that what we have isn’t just a list of numbers, it is a statement of our ideals, instead of a slash-and-burn budget that puts at risk the economic growth of the last 5 years, we propose investments in our infrastructure, in our children, in our economy, and in our future."
