Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Iranian Talks Threaten National Security November 19, 2014
Joe Wilson, R-SC
"Senator Graham has stated that the administration “needs to understand that this Iranian regime cares more about trying to weaken America and push us out of the Middle East than cooperating with us. Until we recognize that reality and formulate a regional strategy to counter the Iranian regime’s malign influence, we will continue to harm U.S. national security interests.”"
Gas Prices And Energy Production November 19, 2014
Glenn Thompson, R-PA
"These resources belong to the people. There is no reason the administration should continue to play games with energy security. Over the last 4 years, the House has made a priority of moving legislation that would increase our domestic energy production supply."
Condemning Iran For Human Rights Violations November 19, 2014
Eliot Engel, D-NY
"Since 2010, the administration has sanctioned 19 Iranian officials and 18 Iranian entities. We have gone after them for their involvement or complicity in serious human rights abuses or in restricting the basic freedoms of the Iranian people. I am proud of the role that Congress has provided in putting forth these sanctions."
Executive Orders November 19, 2014
Charles Grassley, R-IA
"After the President’s State of the Union Address, I wrote to the Attorney General on January 31. I wrote that I was “gravely concerned that the system of checks and balances enshrined in the Constitution [was] threatened by the President’s determination to take unilateral action.” In short, I made clear that “while the President has a pen and phone, we have a Constitution that places limits on his use of them to issue Executive Orders.” Indeed, my concern about the President’s threat to take action on his own was “heightened by the administration‘s record of failing to discharge his constitutional duties to `take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.’ ”"
Secret Science Reform Act Of 2014 November 19, 2014
Lamar Smith, R-TX
"This also includes upcoming ozone regulations, which even the administration admits will be the most expensive in history. Unachievable standards will result in economic hardship, stalled new road projects, and burdened local governments."
