Entry Title Date
Earthquake Warning Systems February 4, 2016
Suzanne Bonamici, D-OR
"Mr. Speaker, my home State of Oregon sits on the Cascadia subduction zone, a fault that separates the Juan de Fuca and North America tectonic plates. We are due—some say overdue—for an earthquake."
Unanimous Consent Requests—Executive Calendar February 4, 2016
Amy Klobuchar, D-MN
"We cannot hold up the business of the Senate like this. We have two nominees for two countries, the 11th and 12th biggest investors in the United States of America, Sweden and Norway. The country of Norway is the purchaser of 52 Lockheed fighter planes, 22 just ordered at $200 million apiece, all made in Fort Worth, TX, the home State of Senator Cruz."
Student Loan Debt February 4, 2016
Patty Murray, D-WA
"Mr. President, last week I asked students and families to share with me their experiences with student loans and college affordability, and I want to start by sharing one of those stories. It is from a young woman named Rebeckah from my home State of Washington. When she was 18, Rebeckah signed up for student loans so she could go to college, and her parents took out what are called PLUS loans to help their daughter afford it. Rebeckah worked hard in college and graduated with her degree. But now she is facing a mountain of student debt, and that is preventing her and her partner from buying a house and starting a family. Not only that, Rebeckah found out that her parents have been taking money out of their retirement savings to pay off their PLUS loans, and they have even resorted to taking a lien out on their home to pay down the debt."
Remembering U.S. Capitol Police Officer Vernon Alston, Jr. February 4, 2016
Christopher Coons, D-DE
"Two weeks ago Vernon died as he lived both his professional and personal life—helping people around him. In this case, he was shoveling snow for his next door neighbor in the aftermath of one of the biggest storms to hit our beloved home State of Delaware in years."
Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act Of 2015— Veto Message From The President Of The United States February 2, 2016
Frank Guinta, R-NH
"In the coming years, the Cadillac tax will be responsible for employees from local governments, small businesses and large, nonprofits, and colleges-universities losing their access to high-quality, affordable health care. This is unacceptable for my home State of New Hampshire—people who want patient-centered health care and options for themselves, their families, not higher premiums, higher deductibles, and fewer doctors."
