Entry Title Date
Celebrating The National Day Of The Republic Of China (Taiwan) September 19, 2014
Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-FL
"Already our 12th-largest trading partner, we should be acting aggressively to enhance our economic relationship with Taiwan in ways that will benefit both our nations. A Bilateral Investment Agreement with Taiwan is long overdue and I urge the Administration to conclude negotiations in an expeditious manner so that our two nations can sign an agreement as soon as possible. In addition to bolstering Taiwan’s economic strength, there is much more the United States can do to support our democratic ally politically and militarily. We must support Taiwan’s democracy and the human rights of the Taiwanese people by providing the tools and assistance necessary to resist Chinese coercion. The United States should help to modernize Taiwan’s defense capabilities by building its capacity to partner with other friendly foreign militaries and through the sale of necessary defense articles. We can also support Taiwan by encouraging visits by high-level officials between our nations and supporting the meaningful participation of Taiwan in international organizations."
Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2015 September 19, 2014
Chris Van Hollen, D-MD
"My one concern with the Administration‘s plan relates to the proposal to arm the so-called “moderate” Syrian opposition. I believe that it is a well-intentioned proposal that will have unintended negative consequences that will not serve our ultimate goal of defeating ISIS."
American Energy Solutions For Lower Costs And More American Jobs Act September 18, 2014
Bill Johnson, R-OH
"This important legislation will unleash America’s energy potential, create thousands of jobs, and stop the administration from destroying tens of thousands of jobs. I urge all of my colleagues to support it."
The Continuing Resolution September 18, 2014
Mitch McConnell, R-KY
"It would block some of the administration‘s discretionary policies against Kentucky coal and help address the administration‘s veterans crisis by providing more resources to address the backlog and investigations into potential wrongdoing that is a positive step toward the more comprehensive reforms Republicans would like to see."
The Islamic State In The Levant September 18, 2014
Glenn Thompson, R-PA
"It does allow the Department of Defense to seek to reprogram existing funds for training, and it also includes new oversight provisions to ensure the administration‘s plan is managed within the confines of the law."
