Occurrences in the Congressional Record

Entry Title Date
Keystone Pipeline September 18, 2014
Barbara Boxer, D-CA
"While my Republican friends come down and say: Let’s bypass all of this evidence and move forward, that is a dangerous idea. It is a dangerous idea."
Paycheck Fairness Act September 15, 2014
Barbara Boxer, D-CA
"If I were to tell one of my Republican friends on the other side that somebody came up to a woman, knocked her on the head and took half a million dollars from her and stole it, they would be horrified and they would remedy it. They would bring in the law. Well, I am asking them to simply vote for the Paycheck Fairness Act. Just vote for it. Make sure women in this country earn what they deserve to earn."
Bank On Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act—Motion To Proceed— Continued September 11, 2014
Charles Schumer, D-NY
"Many other Republicans have portrayed this sensible amendment as an unparalleled attack on the First Amendment, which, they seem to argue, is absolute. I would say, for instance, to the Senator from Texas and my Republican friends that no amendment is absolute."
Affordable Care Act September 10, 2014
Earl Blumenauer, D-OR
"The result was not a bill that anybody would have designed, but it easily could have been made better, should our Republican friends have chosen. Instead, they have continued this unyielding assault."
School Certification September 10, 2014
Mazie Hirono, D-HI
"The very next day, here on the Senate floor, every single Republican Senator voted to filibuster the Paycheck Fairness Act, which failed on a procedural vote. I hope our Republican friends will reconsider their position on this important issue this time around."
