"That broad bipartisan support extends beyond Capitol Hill. It enjoys the support of business groups and environmental organizations and efficiency advocates who all recognize that energy efficiency is the cheapest, fastest way to begin addressing the Nation’s energy needs. Supporters include everyone from the Natural Resources Defense Council, to the U.S. Green Building Council, to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and the Real Estate Roundtable. The list of businesses and organizations that have endorsed this bill numbers over 200."

Patrick Leahy, D-VT
"Madam President, back when I was in law school, I tried to get an internship here on Capitol Hill, with no luck. Senator Kay Hagan has a different story. She first walked these Halls as an intern in the 1970s."
Chesapeake Bay Accountability And Recovery Act Of 2013 December 2, 2014
Mark Warner, D-VA
"I start by thanking Chairman Boxer and Ranking Member Vitter for working with me on this important legislation. I also thank the bipartisan Virginia delegation on both sides of the Capitol, especially my friend Congressman Rob Wittman. He and I have worked on this initiative now for more than 4 years."
World War I American Veterans Centennial Commemorative Coin Act December 2, 2014
Ted Poe, R-TX
"But he came to the United States Capitol and met with many Members of the House and Senate for the sole purpose of making sure that those doughboys he fought with and who died were remembered by the United States Congress. His dying wish was that those he served with would be honored by the House of Representatives and the Senate."
Nomination Of Robert S. Adler To Be A Commissioner Of The Consumer Product Safety Commission—Continued December 2, 2014
Robert Menendez, D-NJ
"Mr. President, I come to the floor to speak about the President’s Executive order on immigration. I have been listening to my colleagues, both here and on the other side of the Capitol, and I rise in amazement. It is almost incredulous that our Republican friends are against the President taking the same action Presidents Reagan and George H.W. Bush took to defer deportation to solve a critical problem that we all know exists in the country—a problem that impacts millions. When President Obama exercises the same Executive authority—the same—they are on the air, on television, on talk shows, on Twitter, fear-mongering, calling it illegal, calling it amnesty, a constitutional crisis. Where was all of that when Presidents Reagan and Bush did it?"
