"If a trip is worth taking, members of Congress should be prepared to justify paying for it out of their office accounts."
Author: Feingold Quotes Category: Congress Quotes
"This proposal is a case of the administration telling Congress to stop asking questions and literally 'leaves it all to us.' To endorse such language would be irresponsible,"

"Make no mistake, our military readiness is already suffering, ... According to a recent RAND study, the Army has been stretched so thin that active-duty soldiers are now spending one of every two years abroad, leaving little of the Army left in any appropriate condition to respond to crises that may emerge elsewhere in the world.

Author: Feingold Quotes Category: Justice Quotes
