Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Immigration September 10, 2014
Luis Gutierrez, D-IL
"This is settled law, and despite the shouts of talk radio and a few on the Republican side, there is no real serious debate about the rock-solid legal ground from which the President can act and has already acted."
Iraq Privileged Resolution July 17, 2014
Walter Jones, R-NC
"In 1971, the rock group The Who released the antiwar anthem “Won’t Get Fooled Again.” To us, its lyrics invoked a feeling that we must never again stand by quietly while those ignorant of and casual about war lead us into another one and then mismanage the conduct of it."
Foreign Policy July 15, 2014
Walter Jones, R-NC
"In 1971, the rock group The Who released the antiwar war anthem, titled, “Won’t Get Fooled Again.” To us, its lyrics evoked a feeling that we must never again stand by quietly while those ignorant of and casual about war lead us into another one and then mismanage the conduct of it. Never again, we thought, would our military’s senior leaders remain silent as American troops were marched off to an ill-considered engagement. It’s 35 years later, and the judgment is in: The Who had it wrong. We have been fooled again."
Infrastructure Needs Of America July 15, 2014
Paul Tonko, D-NY
"No corporation, no group out there, no business which involves itself in improving our highways and bridges will take this method seriously unless they feel that, they sense that stability. So, let’s go forward and be sound about the investments we will make in our infrastructure, and let’s put together that long-term strategy, because as we have witnessed in the past, and understand it to be today, that investment in infrastructure is the rock-solid cornerstone of a stronger tomorrow."
Recognizing The Contributions Of Alan Ray Jordan June 25, 2014
Alan Grayson, D-FL
"In 2003, Billy was asked to run for interim Mayor of Orlando. Alan was Billy’s biggest supporter, becoming his campaign treasurer and coach. Alan was the rock behind Orlando’s first openly-gay candidate for Mayor. Billy’s candidacy, with Alan’s help and support, would change Orlando’s political landscape."
