We Must Confront Evil In The World March 14, 2016
Kevin McCarthy, R-CA
"The Jewish people of Europe were systematically murdered by Hitler, but the world was too afraid to see the truth. The scales were only lifted from their eyes when millions were already dead. At the time, people made excuses for their decision to look away. They said the politics were too dicey, or it wouldn’t be diplomatic, or sometimes they couldn’t believe that such evil exists."
Nuclear Agreement With Iran January 19, 2016
Richard Durbin, D-IL
"Already, right-wing groups … have mounted a strong campaign against the INF treaty. They have mailed out close to 300,000 letters opposing it. They have circulated 5,000 cassette recordings of Gen. Bernard Rogers, former Supreme Commander of NATO, attacking it. And, finally, they are preparing to run newspaper ads this month savaging Reagan as a new Neville Chamberlain, signing an accord with Hitler and gullibly predicting “peace for our time.”"
