"If this bill moves forward as it is presently written, we will not see American ships under our flag with our sailors taking this natural resource, this strategic asset, across the oceans."

Glenn Thompson, R-PA

Steve King, R-IA
"This bill called the ENLIST Act would reward them for doing so, for defrauding the Department of Defense and, yes, putting on the uniform and, at least in theory, defending America. They take an oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States. They salute our flag."
Protecting Access To Medicare Act Of 2014 March 31, 2014
Jeff Sessions, R-AL
"We don’t have to turn to our history books for heroes. They are all around us. One who sits among you here tonight epitomizes that heroism at the end of the longest imprisonment ever inflicted on men of our armed forces. Who will ever forget that night when we waited for the television to bring us the scene of that first plane landing at Clark Field in the Philippines, bringing our POWs home? The plane door opened and Jeremiah Denton came slowly down the ramp. He caught sight of our flag, saluted, and said, “God bless America.” Then he thanked us for bringing him home."
Executive Needs To Faithfully Observe And Respect Congressional Enactments Of The Law Act Of 2014 March 12, 2014
Judy Chu, D-CA
"The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program is legally sound, makes sense, and is the right thing to do. These kids study in our schools. They play in our neighborhoods. They pledge allegiance to our flag. All they want to do is to continue calling their home “home.”"
