Congressional Record entries

Entry Title Date
Ensuring Tax Exempt Organizations The Right To Appeal Act May 20, 2015
Richard Blumenthal, D-CT
"Mr. President, I thank my colleague from Kentucky for giving me the opportunity to ask a question. In the preface to that question, I would like to make a couple of remarks if he will yield to me for that purpose."
Ensuring Tax Exempt Organizations The Right To Appeal Act—Continued May 19, 2015
Richard Blumenthal, D-CT
"Mr. President, these trade agreements are big deals. Trade promotion authority used to mean setting tariffs. Now they can affect everything from the safety of our food to the working conditions of people around the world and environmental standards. Very frankly and simply, that means that Americans should know what the agreements say and what our government is saying about them, and they should be given that information while there is a meaningful chance to influence them."
Usa Freedom Act May 12, 2015
Richard Blumenthal, D-CT
"Mr. President, I thank my colleague from Utah, my friend and very distinguished colleague, as well as our friend from the State of Vermont for their leadership this morning and throughout the drafting and formulating of this very well-balanced compromise--a balance between security, which we must be able to preserve and defend, and our privacy and other essential constitutional rights, which we need to protect just as zealously, because the reason for fighting to preserve our security is so we maintain and preserve our great constitutional rights."
Freedom For Bob Levinson May 11, 2015
Richard Blumenthal, D-CT
"Madam President, I ask unanimous consent that the order for the quorum call be rescinded."
Infrastructure May 11, 2015
Richard Blumenthal, D-CT
"Madam President, spring in Washington, DC, is one of the most beautiful times of the year, as it is in Connecticut and around the country. We have endured a tough winter in the Northeast--a lot of snow and a lot of cold. And now a lot of potholes are all around the country. Spring means potholes, which are endemic not only to the Northeast but to our roads all around America. Potholes are just the latest reminder of infrastructure challenges facing our Nation. That is one reason why this week is, in fact, Infrastructure Week, a time when we should be focusing on rail and roads, the decaying and aging infrastructure that bedevils and hobbles our Nation as we seek to compete globally. And our businesses in Connecticut seek to compete nationally as well as globally."
