Expressing The Sense Of Congress That A Carbon Tax Would Be Detrimental To The United States Economy June 10, 2016
Mike Kelly, R-PA
"The fact that 40,000 Pennsylvanians make a living that way, well, don’t worry about that, they will have to find something else to do. You can go down to West Virginia and you can hear where candidates told them: Listen, you are going to be out of business, but we will find something else for you to do and we will just get to that later."
National Defense Authorization Act For Fiscal Year 2017 June 6, 2016
Patrick Toomey, R-PA
"The school wanted to get rid of him, and tragically they were OK with letting him become someone else’s problem. They wrote a letter of recommendation with the understanding that he would leave. This monster took the letter of recommendation, went across the State line to West Virginia, was hired as a teacher, and several years later he had become a principal. Of course, these people don’t change their ways, and he didn’t. He continued to molest and attack little boys. It ended when he raped and killed a 12-year-old boy named Jeremy Bell in West Virginia."

Lisa Murkowski, R-AK
"Before my colleague from West Virginia leaves the floor, I want to thank him for his leadership on this issue. We have had conversations. I traveled to West Virginia at his invitation to view how West Virginia deals with its energy issues. They have a little bit of everything there in West Virginia, and I was able to see that."
