Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"I am still determined to see if we can find a way forward on this bipartisan bill. Republicans support it, Democrats support it, and President Obama supports it.

Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act Of 2015—Motion To Proceed August 5, 2015
John Barrasso, R-WY
"What does the White House plan to do about it? What is President Obama’s plan for “Worst Expansion Since World War II Gets Even Worse”? What does the President want to do about it? Well, on Monday President Obama and the administration announced its so-called—so-called—Clean Power Plan, and it is going to mandate massive new redtape and job-crushing regulations. It is a national energy tax."
Additional Statements August 5, 2015
Cory Booker, D-NJ
"Together, the United States and India represent over one-fifth of the world’s population and share long-term strategic imperatives in the areas of energy efficiency and environmental sustainability, social and economic development, and regional and global security that are rooted in our shared commitment to democratic ideals. President Obama has aptly referred to this relationship as the “defining partnership of the 21st century.” As the United States pursues greater clean energy production and sustainable manufacturing here at home, we can and should take advantage of opportunities to further collaborate on technologically advanced clean energy solutions."
Statements On Introduced Bills And Joint Resolutions August 5, 2015
John McCain, R-AZ
"Mr. President, this Friday marks 1 year since the Veterans’ Access to Care through Choice, Accountability and Transparency Act was signed into law by President Obama. This bipartisan legislation was intended to address the nationwide scandal involving the death of at least 40 veterans who had been waiting for weeks, months, and even years for necessary care from the VA. Ultimately, we learned that senior VA officials purposely denied care and lied about it to obtain financial bonuses. We are still cleaning-up the aftermath of this scandal and Congress’ work continues today."
