Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Congratulating Ronnie Metsker February 4, 2016
Kevin Yoder, R-KS
"He’s been a long-time member of both the Overland Park and Northeast Johnson County Chambers of Commerce, as well as on the Shawnee Mission Rotary Board of Directors, working to bring more jobs and better paychecks to the community."
Legislative Program February 4, 2016
Steny Hoyer, D-MD
"In that context, I am going to ask the gentleman some questions on the scheduling, but I am hopeful that the Speaker has indicated that he wants to consider some broad issues. He refers to five in particular: national security, jobs and economic growth, health care, poverty and opportunity, and restoring the Constitution. I am not sure exactly what that last phrase means, but in any event, I think all of us want to make sure the Constitution is honored and certainly adhered to."
Financial Institution Customer Protection Act Of 2015 February 4, 2016
Keith Ellison, D-MN
"Twelve million people lost their jobs, and 11 million people lost their homes. Who went to jail for all this mortgage fraud? Well, I think there is only one person I have been able to find. I would be happy to find anyone else. Teresa Giudice from “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” football player Irving Fryar, and straw buyers in Michigan, those are the only people I could find who went to jail for this. Other people who committed massive fraud, they paid fines, but they walked away."
Energy Policy Modernization Act Of 2015 February 4, 2016
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"The senior Senator from West Virginia said he was able to include “critical measures” in the bill to help coal jobs and low-cost electricity in his State. “It is critical for America to establish an all-of-the-above energy portfolio that includes all of our domestic resources,” he said, and, “I truly believe that this bipartisan bill will bring us one step closer to achieving U.S. energy independence.” That is the senior Senator from West Virginia, a Democrat."
Student Loan Debt February 4, 2016
Patty Murray, D-WA
"When I hear stories like Rebeckah’s, it is clear that college costs and student debt are holding families back. I consider it to be one of my most important jobs as a Senator to make sure Washington State families have a seat at the table and a voice in our Nation’s Capital, and on an issue as important as this, I am going to make sure their voices are heard loud and clear here in this Congress. I am going to continue to work with my fellow Democrats on ways to make college more affordable. I am going to keep fighting to reduce the crushing burden of student debt for so many families in my home State of Washington and across the country."
