Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Morning Business July 29, 2014
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Sad but true. I recall when Prime Minister Barak was in office at the end of the Clinton years. The administration brokered a deal that Israel at that time was willing to offer and Palestine said no. It was a deal they probably could not get today."
Longshore And Harbor Workers’ Compensation Clarification Act Of 2014 July 29, 2014
Tim Walberg, R-MI
"As the National Marine Manufacturers Association warns in a letter to Congress, the administration‘s regulatory approach has led to higher rates that could “cause businesses to lay off employees or to decide to buy no insurance coverage for their employees at all.”"
Preventing Expansion Of Daca July 29, 2014
Marsha Blackburn, R-TN
"First, the administration will expand DACA. President Obama has instructed DHS Secretary Johnson and Attorney General Holder to come up with a list of executive actions to address immigration reform. DACA is going to be on that list."
40Th Anniversary Of A Divided Cyprus July 29, 2014
Edward Whitfield, R-KY
"This past February represented a significant shift in the deadlock when both Cypriot leaders resumed long stalled negotiations and issued a joint statement outlining principles the two sides will use to work toward a reunification of Cyprus. Both sides have met regularly since this announcement and real progress is being made. That said, many controversial issues remain and the path forward will be a difficult one. This makes it even more important that the United States Congress, the Administration, the United Nations, Turkey, Greece, and other stakeholders remain engaged and continue to encourage expeditious, good faith negotiations on both sides."
Obamacare July 29, 2014
Virginia Foxx, R-NC
"Mr. Speaker, it is quite obvious that someone at some point in the legislative drafting of ObamaCare thought using Federal subsidies as an incentive to get States to set up insurance exchanges was a good idea, and that was the view that was codified as law. But at a fundamental level, the issue here isn’t the way the statute was written; it is the way the statute was passed. The extremely partisan nature of ObamaCare’s passage has made the administration unwilling or unable to seek fixes via the normal legislative process because doing so would necessitate working across the aisle and compromising."
