Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Military Construction And Veterans Affairs And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2017 May 19, 2016
Paul Gosar, R-AZ
"My amendment will strengthen and support the position of this committee to ensure that none of the funds made available by this act may be used by the administration‘s proposed bureaucracy quagmire called the Veterans Experience Office. While the name may make this proposed new nationwide office sound like a good idea, this proposal would unleash a new cadre of Federal bureaucrats to stand between the veterans and their benefits, repeating those terrifying nine words, “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”"
Legislative Program May 19, 2016
Steny Hoyer, D-MD
"But in a short period of time, they changed that vote, resulting in, not becoming law yet, but this House saying to the administration: You cannot require contractors not to discriminate. That was the effect of it. And characterizing the effect of a vote is what our debate is about, what our country’s values are about, what our country’s future is about, and the respect we have for every citizen in this country, endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. And we ought not preclude those through discrimination."
Passage Of H.R. 5243 May 19, 2016
Stacey Plaskett, D-VI
"While the Administration requested about $256 million in health care assistance to the territories, H.R. 5243 bill provides no targeted funding to the U.S. Territories."
Transportation, Housing And Urban Development, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 May 19, 2016
Susan Collins, R-ME
"The problem is on the mandatory side of the budget, not the discretionary side of the budget, which, due to efforts we have made, has been held relatively flat for several years. But the mandatory spending side of the budget is soaring. There is no doubt about that. For example, many of us, when the administration presented its budget, rejected the gimmicks that were included, for example, in the transportation budget to shift some $7 billion from discretionary to mandatory spending. That was unwarranted. We did not do that."
Issues Of The Day May 19, 2016
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"So it was deeply troubling to hear the confessions and admissions of the White House adviser consultant mouthpiece, Ben Rhodes, reveal that the administration—and I am being careful not to use any specific names. I am addressing generally the administration—that the administration had to lie to the American people and had to lie to the House and Senate about how evil Iran really was and had to talk about how moderate they were when, actually, the fact is, apparently, under the so-called moderate President Rouhani, there have been more people put to death than even under the former President Ahmadinejad. This man is no moderate."
