In Times of Adversity, Our Nation Has Always Given Thanks

Marie Rader

Marie Rader

In the coming days many of us will travel tens, hundreds, or in some cases thousands of miles to join family and friends in celebrating another Thanksgiving. But amid the turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie, and football it’s important to remember the times of greatest thanks for our country, those times when we as a nation and people faced great adversity.

When the first settlers arrived in New England in the early 1600’s, they left in part because they were seeking a new life. But those early years they faced great adversity, from starvation to disease. Even though our ancestors faced tremendous challenges, they never stopped being thankful for what they had, and the (more…)

McConnell Statement on Keystone Vote

Mitch McConnell

Mitch McConnell

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following statement tonight after Democrats defeated legislation to approve construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline:

“Tonight, Senate Democrats once again stood in the way of a shovel-ready jobs project that would help thousands of Americans find work — a remarkable stance after an election in which the American people sent a clear message to Congress to approve serious policies like the Keystone XL Pipeline and get the Senate working again. Unfortunately, many Senate Democrats failed to hear that message. But once the 114th Congress convenes, the Senate will act again on this important legislation, and I look forward to the new Republican majority taking up and passing the Keystone jobs bill early in the New Year.”

Mitch McConnell

Mitch McConnell

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following remarks on the Senate Floor today urging his colleagues to support Keystone XL jobs:

“Later today, the Senate will vote on whether or not to send Congressman Cassidy’s Keystone jobs bill to the President. It’s a vote that’s long overdue, but welcome.

“Keystone XL is just common-sense. It’s a shovel-ready jobs project that would help thousands of Americans find work. It would increase our supply of North American energy. And it would do all that with minimal net climate impact.
