Entry Title Date
Death Tax Repeal Act Of 2015 April 16, 2015
Kristi Noem, R-SD
"A lot of the conversation today has been about that the rich need to pay more. Well, the rich will avoid this tax. They have the resources to do that. But it hits families like mine harder than ever. The rich certainly are not going to pay the burden of this tax."
Justice For Victims Of Trafficking Act Of 2015—Continued April 16, 2015
Heidi Heitkamp, D-ND
"On February 8, 1969, almost all the men near Ward were killed. When the chopper came back to pick up the survivors, Ward demanded to stay behind in order to rescue three men who were still alive but also wounded. While tending to the injured soldiers, Ward stepped on a land mine."
The War On Coal April 16, 2015
Rob Woodall, R-GA
"Oglethorpe Power is the group that supplies power to all of the electric co-ops in the State. Mr. Speaker, I know you have electric co-ops in your State, as I do in mine. These are citizen-owned utilities. These are citizen-owned companies that make sure the lights stay on."
Lynch Nomination April 15, 2015
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"The Senate has confirmed other nominees while the human trafficking bill has been pending on the floor. There is no procedural obstacle. While that bill has been pending, the Senate has voted on nominees for Assistant Secretary of Transportation, Assistant Secretary of Commerce, the Federal Mine Safety and Health Review Commission, and the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board. And on Monday we voted on a Federal judge. It is routine for the Senate to consider nominees on the Executive Calendar while still considering legislation."
Taxpayer Knowledge Of Irs Investigations Act April 15, 2015
Mike Kelly, R-PA
"So I submit to people, this is not a Republican or Democrat issue, as we know it—Mr. Lewis is a good friend of mine—it is American tenets. It is what we firmly believe as Americans. Nobody should be able to do that to us; and if they do that to us, we should be able to inquire about the status of that. This piece of legislation gives every single taxpayer the same rights as those doing the investigation, those doing the leaks and the findings."
