Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Export-Import Bank September 17, 2014
Joe Garcia, D-FL
"In 2013 alone, the Ex-Im Bank supported an estimated $37.4 billion of U.S. exports and helped sustain more than 200,000 jobs. This is key. In my own district, 300 million exports since 2007."
Energy Policy September 17, 2014
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"On another matter, I just explained why the war on coal has been so damaging to the people of my State. It is clear to me at least that we need to work together toward sensible, all-of-the-above energy policy. The good news is that the Republican-run House is set to present us with another perfect opportunity to work across the aisle and do just that this very week. The House plans to pass and send over a bipartisan legislative package that would create jobs while helping to make energy more affordable and more abundant."
Continuing Resolution September 17, 2014
Maria Cantwell, D-WA
"The reason why that is so frustrating to me and many of my colleagues over here is because this is a jobs issue. It is about our economy, and we have heard today at various venues throughout the Capitol how people are actually losing jobs right now because of the uncertainty of the Export-Import Bank. So I know that some of my colleagues in the House of Representatives—Republicans—are proud they have helped to reauthorize the bank for 9 months. Make no mistake about it; this will cost us jobs in the United States of America during that time period."
Kentucky Coal Jobs September 17, 2014
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"The Senate’s failure to address coal is reflective of the Chamber’s dysfunction. While the House is passing bipartisan jobs bills, Senate Democrats’ priorities are show votes."
Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2015 September 17, 2014
Cheri Bustos, D-IL
"This amendment reinforces our commitment to the middle class and making sure that jobs are created right here in America, not overseas, by taking five key steps."
