Entry Title Date
Ensuring Tax Exempt Organizations The Right To Appeal Act May 19, 2015
Roger Wicker, R-MS
"Here is what the Department of Agriculture report, which has now been buried, says as to whether or not the Agency used random or risk-based samplings: Applying the Food Safety Inspection Service program to imported catfish yielded a reduction of approximately 175,000 lifetime cancers for Americans—I want that kind of reduction from carcinogens coming into the United States—and 0.79 percent acute toxicities. Using random sampling in the Agency’s program yielded a reduction of 91.8 million exposures to antimicrobials and 23.28 million heavy metal exposures. We are talking about carcinogens, we are talking about improper antimicrobials that the USDA program would catch, and over 23 million exposures to heavy metals that we don’t need in the United States. Using risk-based sampling yielded a reduction of 95.1 million exposures to antimicrobials."
Ensuring Tax Exempt Organizations The Right To Appeal Act—Motion To Proceed—Continued May 13, 2015
Rob Portman, R-OH
"I was recently in northwest Ohio meeting with steelworkers to discuss one of these cases that has to do with Chinese tires coming into the United States. These particular workers were at Cooper Tire in Findlay, OH, which, by the way, just marked 100 years in business. We want them to be in business another 100 years, but they are having a tough time because they can’t compete with tires being sold at below their cost. In response to the concerns they raised with me, I sent a letter to the Secretary of Commerce and called on the administration to vigorously investigate this case and to stand up for United Steelworkers in northwest Ohio."
Keystone Xl Pipeline Approval Act—Veto March 4, 2015
Edward Markey, D-MA
"Why is that important? It is important because we export young men and women in uniform every single day to the Middle East to protect the ships with oil coming into the United States that we import from Kuwait, from Saudi Arabia, from the other countries around the world. So why would we be exporting oil out of the United States while we are exporting young men and women in uniform out of America who then protect oil coming back in from countries in the Middle East? That makes no sense."
Our Southern Border And Immigration Reform February 10, 2015
Thomas Carper, D-DE
"Last year I am told almost as many Mexicans were going back into Mexico from the United States as are coming into the United States from Mexico. The origin of the illegal immigration is Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador. People say: Why would anybody allow their 7-, 8-, 9-, 10-year-old daughter or son to literally leave in the arms of a coyote on a train—not on a passenger train but on the top of a train—and try to travel 1,500 miles with all kinds of threats to their life and limb? Why would anybody do that?"
Unconstitutional Actions By President Obama December 2, 2014
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"If the drug cartels are getting promises from people coming into the United States illegally that they will work off the rest of the money, then you can bet the drug cartels are going to see that they do."
