Entry Title Date
Helping Angels Lead Our Startups Act April 27, 2016
Kevin McCarthy, R-CA
"It is very simple, when I talk to my colleagues here, in that there are one or two ways to go on this bill. If you sit back and you look at Facebook, Amazon, or Starbucks, they are amazing success stories in America and are where millions of people work."
Energy And Water Development And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016 April 25, 2016
Charles Grassley, R-IA
"I ended my speech with a challenge. I said: I would challenge you to continue developing your understanding of your political beliefs and those of others with whom you may disagree and then do your part to elevate the political dialogue. I would issue the same challenge to my colleagues here in the Senate."
Commending State Officials On Signing The Able Act April 20, 2016
Glenn Thompson, R-PA
"The measure’s passage at the State level follows the signing of a 2014 Federal law, also known as the ABLE Act. I was happy to cosponsor that legislation along with a majority of my colleagues here in the House of Representatives. The law empowers people with disabilities and their families to create flexible accounts to help save for medical and dental care, education, community-based support, employment training, housing, and transportation."
America’S Small Business Tax Relief Act Of 2015 April 18, 2016
John Thune, R-SD
"I hope my colleagues here in the Senate, when the vote comes here in a few minutes, will cast a vote in support of ending debate and allow us to move forward to a vote on final passage, which will enable this legislation to move forward to the House of Representatives and I hope ultimately to the President so he can sign it into law and put many of these provisions in place that would be good for our country."
America’S Small Business Tax Relief Act Of 2015 April 12, 2016
Joe Donnelly, D-IN
"I appreciate the work of my colleagues here in the Senate and across the Capitol in the House who have come together and worked in a bipartisan fashion to provide the administration with the significant tools they need to combat this historic influx of foreign-made steel."
