Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Nomination Of P. David Lopez To Be General Counsel Of The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission December 2, 2014
Sheldon Whitehouse, D-RI
"I will conclude by saying, if the topic is now not going to be denial but it is going to be the cost and benefits of climate action, I am ready to have that conversation all day long. Let’s just make sure it is the whole conversation, not just the half of the conversation that looks at what losing their subsidy means for the big oil companies, the big coal companies, the Koch brothers and the rest of the polluters."
Unconstitutional Actions By President Obama December 2, 2014
Louie Gohmert, R-TX
"I know—I know—this administration, everybody in it talks about the fat cats and going after the rich, and yet, amazingly, as they talk about going after the rich, it is as if there is a wink and a nod: We are going to talk bad about you, call you fat cats, but you are going to get richer than you have ever been. Just don’t forget us when it comes to political contributions. Oh, yeah, we will trash the Koch Brothers, but they can’t hold a candle to the fat-cat Democratic contributors."
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."
