Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2015 September 17, 2014
Brad Sherman, D-CA
"Second, the administration has stated that it will use this authority to train Syrian fighters outside Syria. I have a fact sheet, which I will enter into the Record, provided by the administration, stating that the training will take place outside Syria and that the Saudis have agreed to host facilities."
Government Accountability Office Report Confirms Obamacare Funds Abortions September 17, 2014
Randy Hultgren, R-IL
"Clearly, there has been a lack of full disclosure by the administration and the insurance companies who have ignored the law, a law which failed to provide adequate safeguards for the taxpayer."
Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2015 September 17, 2014
Chris Van Hollen, D-MD
"Mr. Speaker, to keep the government open, the House is considering a continuing resolution (H.J. Res. 124) that permits government agencies to continue spending at the 2014 level through December 11, 2014. As a result, it allows a rate of overseas contingency operations spending at the Department of Defense, Department of State, and other agencies that if sustained over the entire fiscal year would total $92 billion. This sum exceeds what the Administration requested for overseas contingency operations for 2015 by $26 billion. Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan and I agree that this bill should not be interpreted as endorsing the expansion of overseas contingency operations spending above what our military commanders say is needed to support our troops engaged in war operations. Congress will revisit the full-year funding needs for overseas contingency operations at a future date, including whatever resources may be necessary to counter emerging threats, including those ISIL poses. Over the course of the CR period, the Administration should spend OCO funding at a rate that will still allow for full-year funding at no higher than the level military commanders say is needed for 2015."
Energy Policy September 17, 2014
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Among other things, this energy package would finally approve the Keystone Pipeline. This is a project that is safe, shovel-ready, and could create tens of thousands of jobs right away. It is just unacceptable that the administration has now spent 6 years—6 years—dragging its feet on the Keystone Pipeline. I commend my colleague from North Dakota Senator Hoeven for bringing attention to that fact and for his strong vocal leadership on this issue. While some on the other side of the aisle claim to be supportive of Keystone jobs, they have failed to stand up to the majority leader who has blocked this effort time and time and time again on behalf of the Obama administration. We need to approve the House legislative package and finally get this pipeline built and these Keystone jobs created."
Health Care September 17, 2014
Roy Blunt, R-MO
"The administration has delayed the 2015 open season, to sign up for health care, until the middle of November now. Interestingly, the middle of November is right after the election. I assume that is not a coincidence that the administration does not want voters to be reminded, between now and election day, of what the problems are in just trying to sign up and what the new costs and new deductibles may be."
