Entry Title Date
Remembering Yoshi Katsumura August 5, 2015
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"In 1973, Yoshi ventured to Chicago, where he quickly advanced in fine French culinary arts. He studied under Chicago’s first celebrity chef, Jean Banchet, at Le Francais. Yoshi would go on to refine his skills in Paris and Lyon, and he returned to Chicago as a chef and partner at the city’s premier French fusion restaurant, Jimmy’s Place. In 1982, Yoshi opened his own restaurant with his wife Nobuko, Yoshi’s Place."
Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed August 4, 2015
Bernard Sanders, I-VT
"This is not just Bernie Sanders expressing a concern. Last week, this is what former President Jimmy Carter had to say about the current campaign finance system on the Thom Hartmann radio show. President Carter stated that unlimited money in politics “violates the essence of what made America a great country in its political system. Now, it’s just an oligarchy, with unlimited political bribery being the essence of getting the nominations for president or to elect the president. And the same thing applies to governors and U.S. Senators and congress members. So now we’ve just seen a complete subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors, who want and expect and sometimes get favors for themselves after the election’s over.”"
Prohibiting Federal Funding Of Planned Parenthood Federation Of America—Motion To Proceed August 3, 2015
Angus King, I-ME
"No American woman should be denied access to family planning assistance because of her economic condition.” That radical statement wasn’t made by me. It wasn’t made by Jimmy Carter. It wasn’t made by John F. Kennedy. It was made by that known radical Richard M. Nixon in 1970. So access to family planning information goes back almost 50 years. If people in this body don’t think that is appropriate, then let’s debate that, but let’s not use this collateral issue of fetal tissue, which we can debate, to defund an organization that serves the needs of many women in my State and in States across the country, particularly low-income women. Two-thirds of Planned Parenthood’s patients are low-income women. They serve the needs of those women in a responsible, legal, and thoughtful way."
Hire More Heroes Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed—Continued July 23, 2015
Heidi Heitkamp, D-ND
"James Levings was commonly called Jimmy. He was from New Town. He was born on October 18, 1948. He served in the Army’s 503rd Infantry, 173rd Airborne Brigade. Jimmy was 19 years old when he was killed May 23, "
Nuclear Agreement With Iran July 22, 2015
John Cornyn, R-TX
"Even President Jimmy Carter in a recent interview admitted that “the United States’ influence and prestige and respect in the world is probably lower now than it was 6 or 7 years ago.”"
