Every Child Achieves Act Of 2015—Continued July 8, 2015
Patrick Toomey, R-PA
"Well, given that he was a pedophile and a predator, he surely did become someone else’s problem. He went to West Virginia, became a teacher—based in part on the recommendation he got—and rose, in fact, to the level of being a school principal. Along the way, of course, he continued to attack and abuse young boys, finally raping and killing young Jeremy Bell."
Defending Public Safety Employees’ Retirement Act—Continued June 23, 2015
Shelley Capito, R-WV
"One marine in my hometown, Andrew White, returned home to West Virginia after serving in Iraq. Andrew displayed signs of PTSD, including insomnia, nightmares, constant restlessness, and pain related to an injury. In addition to antidepressant and antianxiety pills, doctors placed Andrew on a strong antipsychotic drug and, over time, increased his dosage from 25 milligrams to 1600 milligrams—more than twice the dosage recommended to treat schizophrenia. Andrew White died in his sleep at the age of 23."
