Entry Title Date
Healthcare.Gov Data Breach June 24, 2015
Barry Loudermilk, R-GA
"Throughout our advancement as a nation, we have not always been perfect. In fact, we have made some grave mistakes. However, our shared dedication to liberty and justice for all people has put us back on course. And though it sometimes takes years, or even generations, the spirit of American exceptionalism overshadows our mistakes and, with the spirit of forgiveness and reconciliation, we move forward."
Iran’S History Of Terrorism June 15, 2015
Lee Zeldin, R-NY
"It is not okay for Iran to wipe Israel off the map. We demand the release of our Americans being unjustly imprisoned in their nation, which includes a United States marine. Where is the passion to free Amir now and the others of our fellow citizens wrongfully kept in their jails? Play the pocket aces, Mr. President. America’s greatness, its exceptionalism, its strength is nothing to ever apologize for."

Brad Ashford, D-NE
"In my view, Mr. Speaker, we are at our best when we reach for the Moon. This, in my view, is one of those moments. This is a vote for better jobs, a stronger economy for American workers and for American exceptionalism. I believe, Mr. Speaker, that this is a vote for the ages. Please support TAA and TPP and TPA to make life better for all Americans."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 2262, Spurring Private Aerospace Competitiveness And Entrepreneurship Act Of 2015; Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 880, American Research And Competitiveness… May 20, 2015
Steve Stivers, R-OH
"This package of bills will ensure American leadership in space by fostering a strong and vibrant commercial space industry. Without this legislation, the commercial space industry may face a myriad of regulatory hurdles that would threaten America’s continued exceptionalism in space exploration."
Infrastructure May 11, 2015
Richard Blumenthal, D-CT
"And we are in danger today in this Chamber, in this Nation, of being one of the first generations that left a lesser America for our children. Think of it—a lesser America at a time when the words “exceptional” and “exceptionalism” trip off the tongues of many of our colleagues here in the Chamber. We need to match that rhetoric with real action."
