  • Rep. Bradley Byrne (R-AL)

    PROVIDING FOR CONSIDERATION OF H.R. 1335, STRENGTHENING FISHING COMMUNITIES AND INCREASING FLEXIBILITY IN FISHERIES MANAGEMENT ACT

    "... for us and for our children and, now that I have a grandson, for my grandchildren. I have appreciated this debate today. I always welcome the opportunity to draw attention to some of the real issues which are affecting my constituents back on the Gulf Coast. To some people up here, this issue doesn't mean much. To some people, they only listen to the political talking points put out by lobbyists or by political parties or by environmental groups. But to the small restaurant employees in Gulf Sh..."

    "...d lying in the financial marketplace. They required the big banks to raise more capital so they wouldn't need a bailout if they started to stumble. They gave our regulators new tools to oversee the biggest banks to make sure the rules were followed. It is no surprise the giant banks don't like the new rules, so for 5 years now they have been on the attack. They have sent their armies of lobbyists and lawyers and their Republican friends in Congress to try to roll back the rules and let the giant..."

    LEGISLATIVE BRANCH APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2016

    "... how it is interpreted. This is an amendment that would prevent the delivery of a printed copy that I have in my hand of the Congressional Pictorial Directory--which, by the way, Mr. Flores, no offense, but some of us used this directory to identify you during the course of this discussion. This is a book that is actually necessary and one that we shouldn't be farming out or relying on lobbyists to print for us. Every year, we seem to get an amendment that stops some sort of printing or delive..."

    LEGISLATIVE BRANCH APPROPRIATIONS ACT, 2016

    "...ferently. If the gentleman or any other Member thought that the Joint Committee on Printing should handle it differently, just go talk to them. Instead, what we are doing is pretending that we are actually saving taxpayer dollars. This is about $9,000, and what we shouldn't be doing is outsourcing the things that we need in terms of the materials to do a better job serving the public to lobbyists and the private sector. That does not make sense, and it isn't necessary, and the majority should no..."

I know my colleagues are not going to agree with me on that, but can't we come together as an institution and say that we are going to stand with little babies who feel pain? that we are going to stand with little babies who can survive outside the womb--ones who don't have lobbyists, who don't have money, who can't rally, who can't offer contributions to one's campaign?

    "...g with a gradual evolution of the Congress toward social issues. It marked the transition from Southern leadership of Congress to a growing concentration of power of the Democratic Party in our Nation's biggest cities, many of them in the North, opening a widening rift between our Nation's small towns and rural areas and the political interests of the inner cities. The way was opened for lobbyists to shift attention away from schools and roads and bridges and water systems that helped our people ..."
