Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Drive Act July 22, 2015
James Inhofe, R-OK
"We have the U.S. 1-9 over the Passaic River in Newark, NJ. Senator Booker and Senator Menendez are concerned about that. Herbert Hoover was President when the bridge was built in 1932 with an estimated design volume of 5,500 vehicles a day. It is now up to 62,700 vehicles per day."
Congressional Black Caucus July 13, 2015
Robin Kelly, D-IL
"I yield to the kind gentleman from Newark, New Jersey (Mr. Payne)."
Defending Public Safety Employees’ Retirement Act June 24, 2015
John Thune, R-SD
"Two weeks ago, I came to the floor to talk about the massive rate hikes customers on exchanges are facing for 2016. Let me just read a couple headlines from the first week in June. CNN: “Obamacare sticker shock: Big rate hikes proposed for 2016.” From the New York Times: “Many Health Insurers Go Big With Initial 2016 Rate Requests.” From the Wall Street Journal: “More Health-Care Insurers Seek Big Premium Increases.” From the Associated Press: “8 Minnesota Health Plans Propose Big Premium Hikes for 2016.” From the Newark Star-Ledger: “Premiums to jump more than 10 percent on many Obamacare policies.”"
Cloture Motion June 23, 2015
Sherrod Brown, D-OH
"I am always a bit amused when people who—again, well-educated, good pay, dress like this, good benefits, good retirement, good health care—make pronunciations saying: Well, job losses are painful—not to us, of course. The same as editorial writers who make these decisions, these pronouncements on trade, they are not losing their jobs. People in my State are losing jobs on these fair trade agreements. We are going to inflict this pain. As the Cato Institute and the Wall Street Journal say, by the decisions we make, we are going to inflict pain on these workers. People are going to lose jobs in my town of Mansfield, OH. People are going to lose jobs where I grew up. People are going to lose jobs in Cleveland where I live now. People are going to lose jobs in Zanesville and Newark because of decisions we make today on fast-track, because of decisions we will make next year on the Trans-Pacific Partnership. People are going to lose their jobs, but we are going to vote today to cut off debate, and we are going to forget, at least temporarily, about helping those workers who lose jobs because of decisions we make. How immoral is that? How shameful is that? What a betrayal we are inflicting on those workers if we make this decision today."
The Congressional Black Caucus June 1, 2015
Robin Kelly, D-IL
"Again, I want to thank my coanchor, the Honorable Donald Payne, Jr., who himself is a strong defender of the economic possibilities of Newark, of Orange, and of communities across New Jersey’s 10th Congressional District."
