Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
American Energy Solutions For Lower Costs And More American Jobs Act September 18, 2014
Henry Waxman, D-CA
"This all may make sense to the oil companies, and this may be a giveaway to the Koch Brothers, but I don’t think Americans would agree that this is a good bill. Energy interests should not automatically trump everything else we care about, such as raising healthy children."
Green The Economy: Save The World September 18, 2014
Eric Swalwell, D-CA
"The Koch brothers have funneled $67 million to groups who deny climate change and actively try to delay policies and regulations aimed at stopping global warming."
Continuing Resolution September 17, 2014
James Inhofe, R-OK
"I think it is an appropriate time to talk about the hypocrisy on the left over political spending. We spent all of last week debating a constitutional amendment to limit political speech that is currently protected under the First Amendment. Democrats are talking about the Koch brothers, and people are not aware that this type of activity was from a man named Tom Steyer, by his own admission."
Equal Pay September 16, 2014
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"Its sole purpose, offered by Senator Udall from New Mexico, was to reverse the Citizens United decision. That decision by the Supreme Court basically took off the caps and limits when it came to individuals and corporations putting as much money as they wanted to into the political process. One of my colleagues, Senator Kay Hagan of North Carolina, by her latest estimate has had more than $20 million of negative ads run against her in her home State—not by her opponent, not even by the North Carolina Republican Party but by these outside interests such as the Koch brothers."
Bank On Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act—Motion To Proceed— Continued September 11, 2014
Charles Schumer, D-NY
"Well, he is dead wrong. All Democrats are trying to erase is the hundreds of millions dollars—undisclosed—that are tainting our elections, whether they are coming from the Koch brothers or George Soros or Tom Steyer. All of them should not be allowed to have such huge influence."
