Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed— Continued August 4, 2015
Bill Nelson, D-FL
"So they have an interest in striking a deal, but does that mean we trust Iran’s Government? No, not at all. The Iranian religious leadership encourages hardliners there to chant “Death to America” and “Death to Israel.” Therefore, this agreement can’t be built on trust. We must have a good enough mechanism in place to catch them when and if they cheat; in other words, don’t trust but verify."
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed August 3, 2015
Heidi Heitkamp, D-ND
"He was the third of four children born to Cliff and Leckny Levang and grew up on his family’s farm northwest of Forman. His sister Bev said Cleo loved to tease in good fun. She recalls Cleo visiting her, sneaking around behind her in the kitchen and opening the cupboard doors behind her. After closing them several times, she finally realized her jokester brother was behind the recurring problem. Bev’s son Rick also went into the Marine Corps. Bev said that seeing Rick wearing a marine uniform is a striking similarity to Cleo in his uniform."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions July 30, 2015
Christopher Coons, D-DE
"Some doubt that we can make a lasting and meaningful impact on the poorest of the poor in the developing world, but the fact is, we have made real progress. It was time spent in east Africa 30 years ago that first really changed my life and engaged me passionately in these issues. What is striking is how much progress we have actually made. Over the past 25 years, we have cut in half the number of children and mothers who have died, the number of children under 5, and mothers who die in illnesses associated with childbirth. Mortality rates are now declining faster than ever. And while we do face real and seemingly intractable challenges across the international landscape, our progress on this issue remains a telling sign of what is possible when we pull together and apply thoughtful interventions."
Hire More Heroes Act Of 2015 July 24, 2015
Ted Cruz, R-TX
"It was striking a minute ago seeing the Democratic leader, Senator Harry Reid, calling out the majority leader for filling the tree, for engaging in the same procedural abuse that Harry Reid did over and over and over again in this body. Now the Republican leader is behaving like the senior Senator from Nevada."
Enforce The Law For Sanctuary Cities Act July 23, 2015
Jerrold Nadler, D-NY
"They think that good policing depends on building trust with their residents and that striking fear among immigrants that they may be deported if they report a crime makes everyone less safe."
