Hire More Heroes Act Of 2015 July 24, 2015
Barbara Boxer, D-CA
"I would ask the American people—make your decision. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the International Union of Operating Engineers, the Laborers‘ International Union of North America, the AAA, the U.S. Conference of Mayors, the United Brotherhood of Carpenters, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, American Council of Engineering Companies—I would just say to folks that this is a rare coming together of America. The Presiding Officer has been around here for a while. It is hard to find the U.S. Chamber on the same page as the Laborers‘ International and on the same page as Mothers Against Drunk Driving and the Conference of Mayors and engineering companies."

Now, I ask you, when do we see the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the International Union of Operating Engineers, the Laborers‘ International Union of North America, the United Brotherhood of Carpenters—when do we see all these on the same side? The answer: When we write a highway bill."
