Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Keystone Xl Pipeline Approval Act February 11, 2015
Bill Shuster, R-PA
"This project will create good-paying American jobs. As the President has stated, “First-class infrastructure attracts first-class jobs.” Indeed, six unions representing over 3 million workers support this project, including the United Association of Plumbers and Pipefitters, the International Union of Operating Engineers, the Laborers‘ International Union of North America, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, the building and construction trade, and the Teamsters."
Stop Obama’S Executive Amnesty February 11, 2015
Barry Loudermilk, R-GA
"The President’s recent executive order on amnesty places the safety of every citizen in jeopardy and eliminates job opportunities for hardworking Americans. At a time when millions of Americans are struggling simply to make ends meet, the President should be focused on providing American jobs, not introducing millions of new laborers into the workforce. Since the President assumed office, he has already issued almost 5.5 million work permits to foreign laborers."
Awarding Congressional Gold Medal To The Foot Soldiers Who Participated In Bloody Sunday, Turnaround Tuesday, Or The Final Selma To Montgomery Voting Rights March In March Of 1965 February 11, 2015
Nancy Pelosi, D-CA
"As we all know, this marks the 50th anniversary of two exceptional events in American history: the march on Selma and the passage of the Voting Rights Act. Fifty years ago, as we all know, thousands of people—students and scholars, homemakers and laborers, members of the clergy—the Greek Orthodox Church was very prominently there, and many other heroes—marched across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama."
America’S Free Trade Deficit January 12, 2015
Marcy Kaptur, D-OH
"This will only intensify the already real reduction in wages American workers are experiencing year after year as our jobs are shipped overseas to increase profits of shareholders as they take advantage of impoverished laborers."
Keystone Xl Pipeline January 7, 2015
John Barrasso, R-WY
"It is interesting. When I listen to and think of the President and his comments about jobs and what the impact is going to be, it makes me think of what the president of the Laborers‘ International Union of North America said in the summer 1 year ago. He was scheduled to testify today at the Energy and Natural Resources Committee hearing—a hearing that now the minority, the Democratic acting leader, Senator Durbin, objected to having yesterday. He objected to just a hearing and a discussion."
