Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Legislative Session July 22, 2014
Mark Udall, D-CO
"Mr. President, I rise today to speak about a piece of commonsense legislation the Senate is preparing to consider this week. The bill, which is called the Bring Jobs Home Act, sets out to do just what that name implies—bring good-paying jobs back to America."
Immigration Takes American Jobs July 22, 2014
Mo Brooks, R-AL
"Mr. Speaker, the June jobs report says America’s unemployment rate dropped to 6.1 percent. While 1,115,000 new part-time jobs were created, a staggering, 827,000 full-time jobs were lost, and America’s labor participation rate remained at 62.8 percent, the worst since President Carter."
Bring Jobs Home Act—Motion To Proceed July 22, 2014
Harry Reid, D-NV
"Over the past several months, Americans have heard Democrats speak at length about giving working families a fair shot. What do we mean by a “fair shot”? A fair shot is about making sure Americans have jobs and good jobs. It is about ensuring that workers receive fair, livable wages so they can put a roof over their heads and take care of their kids and actually put food on the table, make the rent payments, car payments. A fair shot is the idea that each hard-working American deserves an opportunity to achieve a measure of prosperity. But it all begins with a job."
Program July 22, 2014
Harry Reid, D-NV
"Madam President, at 11 a.m. tomorrow there will be a roll call vote on the motion to invoke cloture on the motion to proceed to the Bring Jobs Home Act, followed by three voice votes on confirmation of the Clark, Schapiro, and Creedon nominations."
Make It In America July 22, 2014
Marcy Kaptur, D-OH
"People say, well, America has a budget deficit. Well, we have a jobs deficit that grows from importing more than we export. You mentioned the energy sector, one that I have particular responsibility for here. Last year, we imported $369 billion more of petroleum than we exported energy products. That translates into lost jobs in our country of over 1.8 million, nearly 2 million jobs just in the energy sector that we could bring back home if we focused on an all-of-the-above energy strategy that would help us recapture that wealth."
