Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
The Battling Boys Of Benghazi April 10, 2014
Pete Olson, R-TX
"These two Navy SEALs did their jobs. Let’s do our jobs and bring those thugs who killed them to justice"
Recognizing The 45Th Anniversary Of The Minority Business Development Agency April 10, 2014
Joe Garcia, D-FL
"These businesses fuel the economic engine of our country, revitalizing our communities by creating hundreds of new jobs. In my home State of Florida, this agency helped create 2,500 jobs in 2009, including over 800 new jobs in the past year alone."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2015 April 10, 2014
Barbara Lee, D-CA
"The American people deserve a fighting chance to enter the middle class. They deserve better than the Ryan budget. Let me tell you, the better budget for our country is the Democratic alternative, which provides pathways out of poverty, creates jobs, protects the safety net, and grows the economy for all."
Minimum Wage Fairness Act—Motion To Proceed April 10, 2014
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"For days now Republicans have been coming to the floor to ask the Democratic majority to work with us on jobs. This is the issue Americans say they care the most about. So it is hard to see why Senate Democrats seem so allergic to various jobs ideas we have been proposing, not to mention dozens of job-creating bills already passed by the House."
Nomination Of Michelle T. Friedland To Be United States Circuit Judge For The Ninth Circuit—Resumed April 10, 2014
Jack Reed, D-RI
"Madam President, it has been 103 days since emergency unemployment insurance expired and 3 days since the Senate sent a bipartisan agreement to the House which would restore these benefits for up to 2.7 million Americans. These benefits are fully paid for and would lift the entire economy. That is why the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office has estimated that failing to renew the benefits for a full year would cost the economy 200,000 jobs. We recognize our bill is a partial restoration, not a full year. The restoration we proposed will increase jobs in the economy as attested by the CBO."
