Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
9/11 Health Program October 1, 2015
Charles Schumer, D-NY
"So we shouldn’t have to check on it; we should just move forward. I plead, plead, plead with our majority leader, who was genuinely moved by the first responders when he met them, to make sure the bill moves forward. And let me say the same to the new leaders—whoever they may become—in the new House, in the new elections that are coming."
Protecting Cyber Networks Act April 22, 2015
Jim Langevin, D-RI
"I would, however, like to commend Chairman Nunes and Ranking Member Schiff for rising to the challenge as the new leaders of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and producing an even better product, particularly with regard to privacy protections."
Health Care February 27, 2014
Benjamin Cardin, D-MD
"I was in Kiev not long after that Orange Revolution. I had a chance to talk to people who were involved, and I talked to the new leaders. I saw that sense of hope that Ukraine at long last would be an independent country without the domination of any other country and that the proud people would have a country that would respect their rights, that would transition into full membership in Europe and provide the greatest hope for future generations."
Bring Jobs Home Act—Motion To Proceed July 19, 2012
John McCain, R-AZ
"I can tell you firsthand from seeing a couple hundred thousand people celebrating that they are grateful to the United States of America for what we did. I wonder what the attitude of the people who will emerge as the new leaders of Syria—whoever they are—what their attitude will be toward the United States, I ask my colleague. Taking into consideration that the challenges that whoever takes over power in Libya will face are myriad, and there are incredible obstacles to a path to a free and democratic nation, that would cry out for American assistance, how willing and eager will they be for the United States to be engaged in any way in assisting them as they try to achieve the goal they have already sacrificed 17,000 lives for?"
Honoring Robert Abramson January 18, 2012
Lynn Woolsey, D-CA
"Since Bob spoke only English fluently, we worked in former British colonies,” says Barbara. “The colonials had kept the people in menial jobs, and Bob trained them in modern methods of governance.” He was committed to ensuring that the new leaders of fledgling democracies had the skills to run their countries for the benefit of their people."
