Jeff Merkley, D-OR
"I do not think people understand the seriousness of the problem. Ocean acidification is going to be a game-changer. It has the potential to be a real catastrophe."
Veterans Legislation February 27, 2014
Patty Murray, D-WA
"Even the major veterans service organizations and their leaders have said to us that issues such as the Iran sanctions—that the other side wants to offer—have no place in this comprehensive veterans legislation, people such as American Legion Commander Daniel Dellinger, who said: “Iran is a serious issue that Congress needs to address, but it cannot be tied to S. 1982, which is extremely important as our nation prepares to welcome millions of U.S. military servicemen and women home from war,” or IAVA founder and CEO Paul Rieckhoff, who called this comprehensive legislation “a game changer that will change the trajectory for millions of veterans for decades to come.”"
Emergency Unemployment Compensation Extension Act February 6, 2014
Roger Wicker, R-MS
"The creation of the TVA was a game changer. As America spiraled into a devastating depression, Mississippi Congressman John Rankin worked with Nebraska Senator George William Norris to improve and expand rural electrification. The result of their efforts was the TVA Act, passed by Congress on May 18, 1933. TVA began serving Mississippians in 1933 and powering Tupelo in 1934. The goal was simple: to improve the living and economic conditions of seven Southeastern States. By providing affordable electricity to rural communities, TVA was an important economic boost, delivering a needed commodity to one of the country’s poorest regions."
Agricultural Act Of 2014—Conference Report—Continued January 30, 2014
John McCain, R-AZ
"French officials say 700 came from France. French Interior Minister Manuel Valls asserted this month that returning fighters represent “the biggest threat the country faces in the coming years.” The anxiety has been especially acute in Britain, where memories are still fresh of the July 2005 transit bombings. These attacks, which claimed 52 lives, were carried out by homegrown radicals, at least two of whom had received training in Pakistan. “The penny hasn’t dropped. But Syria is a game-changer,” Richard Walton, who leads counterterrorism efforts at Scotland Yard, told the Evening Standard newspaper. “We are seeing it every day. You have hundreds of people going to Syria, and if they don’t get killed they get radicalized.”"
