Entry Title Date
Commerce, Justice, Science, And Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2016—Continued June 23, 2016
Thomas Carper, D-DE
"I will be very brief. My hope is that at the end of the day, we pass what Senator Collins and Senator Heitkamp have worked on, but I would also come back and consider some other issues where we could actually save more lives. That is my commitment, and I am sure it is one the Senator from Texas shares as well. Thank you."
Compromise Gun Legislation June 21, 2016
Jeff Flake, R-AZ
"Mr. President, I come to the floor today to announce my support and my hope that all of us will support the bipartisan compromise that will be proffered this afternoon by Senator Collins, myself, Senator Heitkamp, and others on the Democratic side to actually put something on the floor that is not designed to fail but is designed to pass."
National Defense Authorization Act For Fiscal Year 2017 June 14, 2016
Lindsey Graham, R-SC
"I have told Senator Lee, whom I have a strong disagreement with about his approach to the war—basically saying an American citizen has to be treated as a common criminal, not an enemy combatant, for collaborating with the enemy—we have our differences, but I have removed my objection to his amendment with the understanding that I get a vote on my amendment—the Heitkamp amendment—about the Ex-Im Bank, where thousands of jobs are being lost. I want to put on the record that I am ready to let Senator Reed move forward if we can get a vote on Ex-Im Bank, where thousands of jobs are at stake."
