Jim McGovern, D-MA
"There are nearly 50 million refugees around the world, 50 million people fleeing violence, brutality, oppression, famine, disease—50 million. But when 50,000 minors, one-tenth of 1 percent of the total number, arrive at our border, my Republican friends have a collective hissy fit."
Institutional Litigation Is Unprecedented July 29, 2014
G. Butterfield, D-NC
"I call on my Republican friends to talk to objective legal scholars and read the literature and prior court decisions, protect the integrity of our Federal system, and reject this resolution."
Highway And Transportation Funding Act Of 2014 July 29, 2014
Thomas Carper, D-DE
"For the folks, our Republican friends who say: I don’t like that pension smoothing at all, the idea of mucking with people’s pensions in order to fund something entirely unrelated—and that is building roads, highways, bridges, and transit systems—well, you do not have to do that. You can use an honest pay-for, an honest set-aside, and feel good about doing that."

Sheldon Whitehouse, D-RI
"As we are evaluating the effect of Citizens United on our climate change debate, let’s remember this: A lot of this special interest money has been spent against Republicans. I have had Republican friends tell me, “What are you complaining about? They are spending more against us than against you.” There have been times when that has been true."
Legislative Session July 21, 2014
Bob Corker, R-TN
"I just want to say that my friends, my Republican friends—all of us—had problems when the President was trying to pass this health care bill because he used 6 years’ worth of costs and 10 years’ worth of revenues, which is orders of magnitude better than what is getting ready to happen in this bill this week—again, 10 months’ worth of spending, 10 years’ worth of revenues."
