Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Highway Trust Fund May 13, 2015
Frank Pallone, D-NJ
"Ever since Republicans took control of the House in January 2011, they have shown neglect and indifference towards the Nation’s infrastructure needs. In fact, since Republicans assumed the majority in January 2011, the Republican-led Ways and Means Committee has not held a single hearing on financing options for the highway trust fund. All this, despite the U.S. being ranked 16th in quality of infrastructure, behind Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates, Japan, and others, according to the World Economic Forum; and the country received a D-plus from civil engineers for our infrastructure nationwide."
Stop The Export-Import Bank April 23, 2015
David Brat, R-VA
"Subsidized exporters and their foreign customers like the goodies. For example, Boeing and its airline customers in the United Arab Emirates, India, South Korea, Chile, China, Ethiopia, and Turkey, among others, appreciate U.S. taxpayers helping to subsidize their planes, or any other good you want to name."
Celebrating Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. Great Lakes Region April 22, 2015
Jan Schakowsky, D-IL
Fort Drum Sequestration And Centcom Codel March 2, 2015
Elise Stefanik, R-NY
"Two weeks ago, I had the honor to attend a small congressional delegation visit to Jordan, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Iraq, and Afghanistan. On this trip, I was privileged to meet with soldiers who are based out of Fort Drum, as well as many others who have trained there."
Will The U.S. And The International Community Allow Iran To Develop A Nuclear Weapon? March 2, 2015
Robert Pittenger, R-NC
"This is no time to be weak-kneed. This is a time to work with our allies in the Middle East. I have been and sat down with the Crown Prince in United Arab Emirates. I have sat down with the Emir in Qatar and with President el-Sisi. They all understand the gravity of terrorism. They all understand the issue of Iran. The world sees this threat. This is no time to appease; this is no time to defer."
