Entry Title Date
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget For Fiscal Year 2016 March 25, 2015
Kevin Brady, R-TX
"According to University of Chicago economist Casey Mulligan, ObamaCare alone will, by 2017, cause roughly a 3 percent reduction in weekly employment, 3 percent fewer total hours worked, and a 2 percent reduction in labor income—so less jobs, less hours worked, less in your paycheck."
Concurrent Resolution On The Budget, Fiscal Year 2016—Continued March 24, 2015
John McCain, R-AZ
"Mr. President, on Sunday, I was in the city of Chicago. I had been invited by the Ukrainian-American community to speak to a large gathering. There are many Ukrainian Americans who have chosen the city of Chicago to live in and work. They have made an enormous contribution to the city and to the State of Illinois."
Remembering Reverend Willie T. Barrow March 16, 2015
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"Reverend Barrow didn’t just fight for racial equality, she fought for women’s rights, labor rights and gay rights too. While she helped Rev. Jesse Jackson start Operation Breadbasket on the South Side of Chicago, she was fighting sexism within the civil rights movement. During meetings, some even asked Reverend Jackson why he brought his secretary."
For-Profit Schools March 12, 2015
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"The stories that come to my office of young people who signed up for these for-profit schools and ended up with more debt than they could ever possibly imagine are horrifying. Imagine a 30-year-old woman in the suburbs of Chicago with over $100,000 in debt and a worthless degree from Westwood College, one of the for-profit colleges in the Chicagoland area."
Keystone Xl Pipeline Approval Act—Veto March 4, 2015
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"Few people on Earth are happier about the start of the baseball season than Bill Bartholomay, a man who has done so much for the cities of Chicago and Atlanta, for the sport of baseball, and for our Nation."
