Nomination Of John W. Degravelles To Be United States District Judge For The Middle District Of Louisiana July 22, 2014
James Inhofe, R-OK
"I do calculations every time I hear a large number and I go back. In my State of Oklahoma, I calculate the number of families who actually file Federal tax returns and do the math. That would cost each family in Oklahoma about $3,000 a year. We know it doesn’t make any difference, because the testimony of the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, the EPA, Lisa Jackson, who was appointed by President Obama, said in response to my question on the public record that even if we were to pass something it would not have the effect of reducing CO emissions worldwide, because this isn’t where the problem is. The problem is in China and other places.2"

James Inhofe, R-OK
"At a ceremony on his birthday in 2013, the State of Oklahoma dedicated to his memory the bridge on U.S. 75 across Polecat Creek, just south of Main Street in Jenks, OK. A sign reading “Specialist Dylan Johnson Memorial Bridge” was emplaced on the structure, and his father asked those gathered to remember Oklahoma’s other fallen soldiers when they cross it."
Veterans Affairs June 26, 2014
David Vitter, R-LA
"My colleague, Senator Coburn of Oklahoma, whom I have worked with closely in dealing with many of these VA problems, also released his oversight report on the Department entitled “Friendly Fire: Death, Delay, and Dismay at the VA.” To say his report is troubling is quite an understatement. Some of the key findings I found most troubling in the report were these: the fact that there seems to be a perverse culture, his report said, within the Department where veterans are not always the priority and data and employees are manipulated to maintain an appearance that all is well."
Honoring Our Armed Forces June 25, 2014
James Inhofe, R-OK
"Major General Myles Deering, the Adjutant General of Oklahoma said, “LT Leehan served his nation and our state with great honor and distinction for more than a decade. His sacrifice will never be forgotten.”"
