Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2015 April 10, 2014
Rob Woodall, R-GA
"I, Mr. Chairman, am the cosponsor, the lead sponsor of the Fair Tax, the only proposal on Capitol Hill that abolishes every single deduction, exemption, exception in the Tax Code. So nonsense, if folks will suggest that this is a budget for special interests."
Minimum Wage Fairness Act—Motion To Proceed April 10, 2014
Harry Reid, D-NV
"It is shameful that Koch money has made its way into our Nation’s Capitol, our news, and our homes. It is frustrating that as Senate Democrats look across the aisle, we don’t see many willing partners in defending middle-class families in Nevada and across the Nation. But we are not going to be intimidated by these Koch surrogates in the media or here in this very Chamber. We will continue to fight even harder to protect Americans from the greedy grasp of these billionaire oil barons and the wrath of their radical minions. Senate Democrats will continue to pull that ladder out from the Koch brothers’ fingers so every American has a fair shot at climbing to the top."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions April 10, 2014
Patty Murray, D-WA
"We also have many of the very caregivers this bill is designed to help—representing, by the way, almost every State—in the gallery today to see this legislation introduced. I am very proud they are here. It is incredibly important that they are here today and on Capitol Hill because, as the Presiding Officer knows, our caregivers work extremely hard without any recognition, and they rarely ask for anything for themselves. In fact, most of the caregivers I have met sound much like the veterans and servicemembers they care for when they say: Oh, this isn’t about me; I am just doing my part."
Nomination Of Michelle T. Friedland To Be United States Circuit Judge For The Ninth Circuit—Resumed April 10, 2014
Christopher Coons, D-DE
"Baltimore is a city I traveled through this morning on my way to this Capitol on the Amtrak train. In Baltimore, Senator Mikulski’s home State, the B&P tunnels have stayed open since 1873. Although they have undergone periodic repairs, none of them were built to be permanent. We can’t be competitive if we continue to rely on tunnels that have been around since roughly the time of our own Civil War. We need to invest in modernizing this infrastructure."
District Of Columbia Statehood April 10, 2014
Eleanor Norton, D-DC
"We were able to get the first statue representing the District of Columbia in the Capitol last year. The reason that is important is that a statue, like those of the states, was denied us because we are not yet a State. We have now been able to break through that with what is surely a symbol of statehood."
