Harry Reid, D-NV
"Our head coach Jurgen Klinsmann was a legendary soccer player. I can remember his playing in the World Cup. He was from Germany and played for West Germany. He has lived in the United States for a number of years."
Justice For Dr. Mehdi Ali Qamar June 10, 2014
Steve Stivers, R-OH
"He was from Pickerington, Ohio, and was a cardiologist and humanitarian who was volunteering his time to care for folks at the Tahir Heart Institute in Pakistan."
Making Continuing Appropriations For Fiscal Year 2014—Motion To Proceed—Continued September 24, 2013
Marco Rubio, R-FL
"We talk about all those policies, but ObamaCare is an example of that. You ask yourself how does ObamaCare undermine the free enterprise system? There are a few examples. First, because of the disruptive costs and rules created by ObamaCare, there are thousands of middle-class jobs that will not be created. These are jobs that were going to be created that someone wanted to create. I met a restaurant owner. I think he was from Louisiana. He testified before the Small Business Committee. He wants to open new restaurants. He has specific sites in mind. He knows he can make it work. He is not going to do it and he cites ObamaCare as the reason why. Those are jobs that were going to be created that do not now exist because of ObamaCare. That undermines the free enterprise system."
Offshore Energy And Jobs Act June 27, 2013
Jeffrey Duncan, R-SC
"I was talking with a gentleman from an ACC school—I know you’re an LSU guy—but he was from Virginia Tech. He said, Go Hokies. I didn’t like that, but he understands that Louisiana is treated unfairly when you compare to what is going on in Wyoming where they got a billion dollars last year in revenue."
Tribute To Ray Lahood June 18, 2013
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"Make no mistake, Ray LaHood is a proud Republican. I remember meeting him first when he was a staffer for Bob Michel, who was the Republican leader in the U.S. House of Representatives. Ray was a behind-the-scenes worker for the Republican minority leader in the House, and I knew he was from Peoria but little else about him. When Bob Michel announced his retirement, Ray LaHood said he was going to run for that position in Congress."
