Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Hire More Heroes Act Of 2015 July 28, 2015
John Thune, R-SD
"Mr. President, I want to compliment the Senator from Oklahoma for his great work on this legislation. He has been a fierce advocate for transportation funding, for doing highway bills on more than a short-term basis. As he has mentioned numerous times, since 2009 we have had 33 short-term extensions—patches, if you will—which make it very difficult to run a highway program."
Hire More Heroes Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed July 23, 2015
Daniel Coats, R-IN
"But today I have come to talk about waste, abuse, and fraud. I have been down here 18 times since February, once a week. I could be down here every day. I could be down here every hour. It is astounding the amount of taxpayers’ hard-earned dollars that has to pay for what has been categorized by neutral agencies—not on a partisan basis at all—as total waste, total fraud, and total abuse."
Ratepayer Protection Act Of 2015 June 24, 2015
Frank Pallone, D-NJ
"It has been amended and changed several times since then, but the EPA is simply acting on a law that was passed by the Congress. There is no such thing here that the EPA is somehow doing something that they shouldn’t be doing, which is what is being suggested by some of my colleagues on the Republican side and, I guess, is the basis for this legislation."
Nuclear Agreement With Iran June 24, 2015
Thomas Carper, D-DE
"Whatever the case may be, I certainly do not trust the Iranian Supreme Leader nor do I want my acceptance of a deal to be based solely on his rhetoric. To borrow a phrase from President Reagan—a phrase we have heard in this Chamber hundreds of times since I came here 14 years ago—final deals should not be predicated on the mantra “trust but verify.” Rather they should embody the principle of “distrust and verify.”"
American Research And Competitiveness Act Of 2015 May 20, 2015
Rick Allen, R-GA
"H.R. 880 is to simplify and make permanent the research and development tax credit. Despite the fact that the research tax credit has been extended 16 times since its enactment, it remains a temporary measure. It is very difficult to plan based on temporary measures. Clearly, it is high time that we provide certainty for innovators in Georgia and across the Nation by making this tax credit permanent."
