Entry Title Date
Energy And Water Development And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 April 27, 2016
Lamar Alexander, R-TN
"We also listen to each other. So if the other side says this is an especially difficult issue for us, we try to accommodate that. So the Senator from Arkansas has said that he will take 60 votes, although he is entitled to 51. He can force a 51-vote vote on this issue if he chose to do that, under parliamentary rules."
Congratulating Joshua Crownover On His Election As Sga President At The University Of South Alabama April 26, 2016
Bradley Byrne, R-AL
Trans-Pacific Partnership April 25, 2016
Jeff Sessions, R-AL
"The President has made it clear that he intends to continue to push through this 5,544-page trade agreement that the American people don’t want. Polls show consistent disapproval of the TPP. A March poll by Americans for Limited Government found that 51 percent of Americans did not know anything about it. I would say at least 50 percent of the Members of Congress don’t know much about it. It is more than 5,000 pages. I have probably spent more time on it than the vast majority have, and it is rather difficult to read. No wonder the American people say they don’t know a lot about it. But of those who claim to be familiar with it, 58 percent oppose it. There are a lot of reasons for this, and we will talk about it more."
God Bless A True Texan, Bob Schultz April 21, 2016
Pete Olson, R-TX
"The Fort Bend Star introduced me to Bob Schultz. I work for Bob. Bob lives in Richmond, Texas. He is 51 years old."
The Week In Review April 21, 2016
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"Gee, there are some low-level confirmations that are so important to the country, we are going to set aside the cloture rule. It only takes 51 votes to do that."
