Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Energy And Water Development And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016—Continued April 26, 2016
Marco Rubio, R-FL
"A lot has happened regarding Zika. We have learned more and more about this disease. For example, we are now learning the virus has a direct link to Guillain-Barre syndrome, a very debilitating, often fatal, illness, and it is striking people affected with it. We are learning through recent science that it is not just the first trimester of pregnancy but also potentially in the second trimester that unborn children can be impacted by this, and the impacts are devastating."
Irs Oversight While Eliminating Spending (Owes) Act Of 2016 April 20, 2016
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"It is striking that somehow giving assistance to 7.3 million people who get the tax credits—16 million people who are under the Affordable Care Act—to implement that does not fall within the definition of taxpayer assistance. And my friends, Smith, neither one of them, could actually answer that, and I think it is telling."
In Honor Of Francis E. Cirillo Iii April 20, 2016
Elizabeth Esty, D-CT
"And I also note that Frank was frequently “recognized’ as Al Pacino—his resemblance to the famous actor was so striking that Frank proudly hung a large Godfather poster behind his desk. Frank will be sorely missed by all those who were fortunate enough to know him. His contributions to the City of Waterbury and the State of Connecticut will not be forgotten. My heart and condolences go out to his family and friends as we remember the legacy and the glorious life of Frank Cirillo."
Democracy Spring: Money In Politics April 20, 2016
Jan Schakowsky, D-IL
"But in recent years, courts and State legislatures have torn away at these rights. In 2013, the Supreme Court rolled back voter protections with its misguided Shelby County decision, striking down key provisions of the Voting Rights Act."
Energy And Water Development And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 April 20, 2016
Patrick Toomey, R-PA
"I think we need to ask ourselves whether we are striking the appropriate balance here when 27,000 people are dying from heroin and prescription painkiller overdoses. Many of the people who are dying from heroin overdoses began with prescription opioids, and they moved on to heroin when they discovered that it was cheaper and more available than the prescription opioid that they got addicted to in the first place."
