Entry Title Date
Marking The Passing Of James Brady November 12, 2014
Nancy Pelosi, D-CA
"As an advisor to top-level public officials at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Office of Management and Budget, Department of Defense and the U.S. Senate, Brady became an indispensable counselor and trusted friend to many. He was tapped to serve as Director of Public Affairs and Research for the Reagan-Bush Committee and, following the election, as Spokesperson for the Office of the President-Elect and White House Press Secretary."
Tribute To The U.S. Air Force And Major K.C. Courtland September 17, 2014
Roy Blunt, R-MO
"As we think about Major Courtland and all of the others who serve, we want to be very mindful of their service, their willingness to step forward to defend our freedom, to be willing to defend our freedom at a time when, once again, we are talking about this week those who would threaten our freedom and what we will do about that and how we are looking to be sure that the strategy we have and the resolve we have is a resolve that allows us to convince our enemies that a peaceful world—a world where people can pursue their own values, where they are able to pursue their own right of conscience, where they are able to look within themselves and determine their own religious convictions rather than have someone tell them what those convictions are and demand that everybody follow exactly the same path in the way they view religion and the way they consequently would be required, because of that one view, to view society and how people should live together—hopefully those who defend us will get the kind of support and the kind of thoughtful consideration and determination they need from the people in the Senate and the House, from people in the Defense Department and the administration, from people in the White House, from the Office of the President himself on down who are going to be making decisions that will put others in harm’s way as we try to prevent greater numbers of Americans, frankly, from being in harm’s way."
Separation Of Powers July 17, 2014
Rob Woodall, R-GA
"We don’t have an opportunity to say no. We have an obligation to say no. Not to say no to this President, but to say no to the Office of the President. When these powers slip away, these powers that don’t belong to this Chamber but belong to the American people, when they slip away, they are hard to get back."
Challenges And Opportunities October 14, 2013
Steve Scalise, R-LA
"And so we are 14 days into a government shutdown that the President is decrying and calling people names. You have got people in the White House literally calling people suicide bombers, terrorists, and all kinds of other things that are so unbecoming of the Office of the President of the United States—again, a President who said he was going to change the tone in Washington allowing people in his White House to call people on the opposition terrorists and suicide bombers—and yet he refuses to even sit at the table and negotiate our differences while we have passed 20 different bills to fund all or parts of government."
Tribute To Marco Watson Mcmillian July 24, 2013
Bennie Thompson, D-MS
"Hailed by Ebony magazine in 2004 as one of the nation’s 30 top leaders who are 30 and under, Marco was appointed as the Leadership Effectiveness Initiative Program Manager for New Leaders Memphis and had since been promoted to Director of Recruitment and Operations. Formerly, Marco served as the Executive Assistant to the President (Chief of Staff) at Alabama A & M University in Huntsville, Alabama. As a member of the President’s cabinet, Marco was responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Office of the President. In addition, he was responsible for the university’s strategic partnerships and legislative affairs in which he assisted the university in receiving its largest state appropriation ever—$38 million. During his tenure as Associate Director for Development at Jackson State, he was responsible for managing the university’s fundraising operations and programs, which led to the institution securing more than $16 million in private support. Additionally, he assisted as one of the principals in the development of the $50 million campaign for Jackson State University."
