Barry Loudermilk, R-GA
"What the administration does not want us to know is that these standards would wreak havoc on our economy and inflict enormous costs on the American consumer.

Trade Promotion Authority June 24, 2015
Rob Portman, R-OH
"So this is a very important amendment. We call it the leveling the playing field amendment because as we are expanding exports—which we, of course, should do because that creates more good jobs in my home State of Ohio and around the country—we should also be sure that we are more aggressively enforcing the trade laws that are in place, the international rules and our domestic rules. This amendment that just passed the Senate tonight enables us to do that."
Tribute To Federal Employees June 24, 2015
Thomas Carper, D-DE
"For the 42,000 Active-Duty Coast Guard men and women, their mission may take them to ports and waterways across our country and around the globe. For Petty Officer Joscelyn Greenwell, her service with the Coast Guard has taken her from California to Hawaii to my home State of Delaware."
Defending Public Safety Employees’ Retirement Act June 24, 2015
Daniel Coats, R-IN
"The end result is companies not being able to provide the jobs they would like to provide or to be the dynamic industry they would like to be, and that puts them in a less than competitive position against our overseas producers. Many companies in my home State of Indiana have been affected by this subsidy. Let me give a couple of examples."
