Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Bring Jobs Home Act—Motion To Proceed July 24, 2014
Mark Warner, D-VA
"Mr. President, I rise to call attention to the important efforts made each day by our public servants. We often forget that our public servants are Federal employees who go to work every day with the sole mission to make this country a better and safer place to live. Day after day they go about their work receiving little recognition for the great work they do, and many times, unfortunately, they are actually berated rather than acclaimed for what they do during difficult times."
Tsa Office Of Inspection Accountability Act Of 2014 July 22, 2014
Bennie Thompson, D-MS
"This has resulted in employees, such as Transportation Security Officers, lacking the due process rights afforded other Federal employees."
Unfunded Liabilities—The Greatest Threat To Our Future July 16, 2014
David Schweikert, R-AZ
"Think about if I came to you and told you that 9 years from now, for a branch of our service, 80 percent of their money is not equipment, is not things that keep the soldiers safe, but it is just going to be salaries, health care, and retirement. You need to understand that the very thing we are discussing on our overall Federal budget is now also hitting Federal employees and our military."
Financial Services And General Government Appropriations Act, 2015 July 15, 2014
Ander Crenshaw, R-FL
"As I read the amendment, it basically says you just can’t pay Federal employees. If I am a Federal employee and somebody says you can’t pay me this wage, I guess I can either come to work and not get paid or I can just decide that you decided not to pay me so I don’t think I will come to work anymore."
Smart Savings Act July 14, 2014
Elijah Cummings, D-MD
"Mr. Speaker, I yield such time as he may consume to the gentleman from Massachusetts (Mr. Lynch), a distinguished member of our committee who has worked very hard on these issues and who has been a strong advocate for our Federal employees."
