Ted Poe, R-TX

Mark Walker, R-NC
"Syria, Russia, Benghazi, Iraq, ISIS, and we are supposed to be excited about a deal with the world’s leader in state-sponsored terrorism. All the while, we have given the cold shoulder to Israel, our greatest ally in the Middle East for generations, as we have listened to, over the weekend, shouts from Iran, “Death to Israel. Death to America.”"
National Defense Authorization Act For Fiscal Year 2016 June 17, 2015
Barbara Mikulski, D-MD
"Second, in the State Department, you need Embassy security. If you don’t want another Benghazi, you must put money in the Federal budget to make sure we have Embassy security. You have to fund the State Department. That is in discretionary funding."
Usa Freedom Act Of 2015—Continued June 1, 2015
Daniel Coats, R-IN
"I understand Americans’ frustrations and concerns about their civil liberties and privacy. Those concerns have been bolstered by acts of government that can hardly be explained. Look at what has taken place with the IRS. Talk about targeting people, invading their privacy and civil rights and using the organization of government for political purposes is outrageous. Of course, people are up in arms about all of this, the debacle of Benghazi and Fast and Furious and on and on over the years. One can go into what has happened to instill distrust in the minds of the American people."
