Entry Title Date
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."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 1560, Protecting Cyber Networks Act, And Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 1731, National Cybersecurity Protection Advancement Act Of 2015 April 22, 2015
Doug Collins, R-GA
"These bills are not a magic pill. They will not render inoperable the scores of foreign countries and enterprises that want to see American exceptionalism brought to its knees; but they do give clear, positive legal authority to American companies to allow them to protect their own and to appropriately share cyber threats with other countries and, in certain cases, Federal agencies."
Honoring W.C. Gorden April 16, 2015
Bennie Thompson, D-MS
"Coach Gorden’s feats have been honored and recognized by many; he was inducted into the SWAC Hall of Fame in 1994; the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame in 1997; the College Hall of Fame in 2008; and the Black College Hall of Fame in 2015. Coach Gorden’s legacy falls in line with Mississippi’s tradition of athletic exceptionalism."
Remembering President Abraham Lincoln April 15, 2015
Kevin McCarthy, R-CA
"Lincoln understood American exceptionalism. We know this for many reasons, but one great reason was his words at Gettysburg. He told the crowd that our Fathers had brought forth on this continent a new nation, one conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. It was his vision that this Nation would have a new birth of freedom; and, for that beautiful vision, many have fought and died."
