Congressional Record entries

Entry Title Date
Nuclear Agreement With Iran August 5, 2015
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Mr. President, as the administration's agreement with Iran comes under greater scrutiny, there is growing bipartisan concern. It is widespread, and it is well founded. The leading House Democrat on the Foreign Affairs Committee recently said the deal ``troubled'' him because ``it doesn't prevent Iran from having a nuclear weapon, it just postpones it.''"
Cyber Security August 5, 2015
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Mr. President, a cyber attack can feel like a very personal attack on your privacy. A criminal with your medical records, your credit cards, and your Social Security number; a stranger with emails from your boss, texts to your friends, and pictures of your kids--it is personally violating, financially crippling, and it can be just plain creepy. But with effective cyber security legislation, we can help protect America's privacy."
Tribute To Russ Thomasson August 5, 2015
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"Now, Mr. President, on one final matter, I know my friend from Texas will have some words to say about the man who has been helping him run the whip operation so effectively the last few years, and I know Senator Cornyn won't mind if I share a few thoughts first."
