Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Bank On Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act—Motion To Proceed September 11, 2014
Lindsey Graham, R-SC
"The mistakes President Obama has made are real, and they have to be corrected. If the President will correct them, I will stand with him no matter what the polls show about troops on the ground. And I know how the President stands with South Carolinians—not very well. It is not about the President; it is not about this Senator; it is about us."
Recognizing The Manigault-Hurley Family’S Service To The Community April 2, 2014
Joe Wilson, R-SC
"Mr. Speaker, it is appropriate to recognize the Manigault-Hurley Family for their dedicated service to the Midlands community. After 90 years of dedicated service to generations of South Carolinians, the oldest family-owned funeral home in the Columbia area, closed its doors earlier last month."
Big Week For America’S Energy Supporters November 21, 2013
Joe Wilson, R-SC
"This administration has failed to produce a clear plan for storing spent nuclear fuel, putting the environment at risk. South Carolinians have paid $2 billion into the program for the fees to address spent nuclear waste. Yet because of the President’s party politics, a facility does not exist."
Obamacare Hurts American Families September 26, 2013
Joe Wilson, R-SC
"The South Carolina Department of Insurance has estimated that health insurance rates in the Federal exchanges will increase up to 70 percent for South Carolinians. A majority of other States will have premium increases that will skyrocket, destroying jobs."
Making Continuing Appropriations For Fiscal Year 2014—Motion To Proceed—Continued September 24, 2013
Ted Cruz, R-TX
"South Carolinians are already starting to feel the front end of the shockwave as several local employers cut work schedules to part time. And we are left to imagine the ultimate decimation on the budgets of Palmetto State families as personal rates skyrocket and people are forced off their current insurance that we were promised we would be able to keep. In fact, just last week, Palmetto Policy Forum’s president received a letter telling her she would be losing her private policy. And this is just the beginning of the promised “trainwreck.”"
