Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Legislative Session April 2, 2014
Lamar Alexander, R-TN
"This provision of the Tax Code was enacted in 1992. It was supposed to be a “temporary” subsidy. It was intended to do what we have done several times in our country, which is to jump-start a new energy technology. Well, as President Reagan observed, eternal life for a government program sinks in pretty quickly. This temporary tax provision, enacted in 1992—more than 20 years ago—has been extended eight times since its enactment. The wind industry has become a very well-developed industry."
Protecting Access To Medicare Act Of 2014 March 27, 2014
Jim McDermott, D-WA
"When it comes to this mixed-bag piece of legislation, cooked up in the dead of night, put on the Web at 2 minutes before midnight a couple of days ago, revised several times since—not much more than 48 hours ago this stuff started—I vote “no.” Enough with trying everything else. It is time to do what is right—a permanent doc fix that is argued, debated, agreed upon. It is what our seniors need. It is what our doctors need to help them manage their practices. It is what our Nation needs and deserves."
American Energy Renaissance March 11, 2014
Lisa Murkowski, R-AK
"Consider, for example, the opportunity we are missing in my State of Alaska. Thirty years ago, in March 1984, Alaskan crude oil production stood at 1.6 million barrels per day. The Trans-Alaska Pipeline System had been completed just a decade earlier. There were debates over opening new areas to production and even allowing exports of crude oil from the State, but the Federal Government did not act at that time. It did not seize Alaska’s best and most obvious opportunities. Production peaked at 2.1 million barrels per day in March 1988. It has been on general decline ever since then. Alaska’s production has dipped below the half million barrels per day marker several times since 2012. This is a fall of nearly 75 percent from its high."
Deamonte Driver’S Passing March 6, 2014
Benjamin Cardin, D-MD
"I have spoken on the Senate floor about Deamonte Driver several times since his death, and in the intervening years, both in Maryland and nationally, we have made tremendous progress. When Deamonte’s story was brought to light, I believe it was a wakeup call for our Nation. It brought home the statement of former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop: “There is no health without oral health.”"
Recognizing Nacds Rximpact Day March 5, 2014
Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-WA
"Advocates from 40 states have travelled to Washington to talk about the pharmacy community’s contributions in over 40,000 community pharmacies nationwide. These important healthcare providers are here to educate Congress about the value of pharmacists and protect access to the essential services they provide as part of our healthcare delivery system. And just as these providers travelled to meet with us, Members of Congress have toured retail chain pharmacies in our own communities more than 250 times since 2009. There are 106 chain pharmacies in my own Congressional District, and those stores employ nearly 10,000 Washingtonians."
