Wasielewski Senate quotes by George Lucas
#1. [In ancient Rome,] why did the senate after killing Caesar turn around and give the government to his nephew? Why did France after they got rid of the king and that whole system turn around and give it to Napoleon? It's the same thing with Germany and Hitler. #Quote by George Lucas
Wasielewski Senate quotes by Will Rogers
#2. Wall Street is being investigated, but they are not asleep while it's being done. You see where the Senate took that tax off the sales of stocks, didn't you? Saved 'em $48,000,000. Now, why don't somebody investigate the Senate and see who got to them to get that tax removed? That would be a real investigation. #Quote by Will Rogers
Wasielewski Senate quotes by Rob Portman
#3. I hope that the entire Senate votes to say that if you're on the terrorist watch list - not just the no-fly list, which is a much more targeted list, but the terrorist watch list - you should not be able to buy a weapon. #Quote by Rob Portman
Wasielewski Senate quotes by Colin Powell
#4. You should see what our Founding Fathers used to say to each other and in the early part of our nation. But what they were able to do, especially in Philadelphia in 1787, four months, they argued about what a House should be, what a Senate should be, the power of the president, the Congress, the Supreme Court. And they had to deal with slavery. #Quote by Colin Powell
Wasielewski Senate quotes by John R. Dunne
#5. As a member of the New York Senate from 1966 to 1989, I voted 12 times to establish the death penalty in New York ... I regret my votes in favor of the death penalty. #Quote by John R. Dunne
Wasielewski Senate quotes by Mark Pryor
#6. Obviously in the Senate we have all types of different people, all kinds of different folks that have come from all types of different backgrounds - and I think that's part of that sense of entitlement that he gives off is that, almost like, I served my country, let me into the Senate. But that's not how it works in Arkansas. #Quote by Mark Pryor
Wasielewski Senate quotes by Steve Brouwer
#7. It is possible that the next economic downturn--or stock market crash--will bring on further developments. During the recession at the end of the 1980s, ex-Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke gathered strong support from disgruntled citizens in Louisiana for his gubernatorial and US Senate races. Voters did not seem to be bothered by his record, which included plenty of statements like: "The Jews have been working against our national interest. . . . I think they should be punished."

Bertram Gross and Kevin Phillips had each foreseen part of a process that engendered remarkable tolerance for authoritarian political solutions. Gross correctly identified the kind of authority that the corporate world wanted to exercise over working- and middle-class Americans. Phillips was perceptive about the way ordinary Americans would participate in actually constructing a more harsh and restrictive social milieu. By the 1990s the two strands were coalescing into something we could call "Authoritarian Democracy." Today it is clear that the goals of the corporate rich can be furthered by the enthusiasms of the popular classes, especially in the realms of religion. #Quote by Steve Brouwer
Wasielewski Senate quotes by Jack Layton
#8. I don't know why we'd need so many more prisons when the crooks seem so happy in the Senate. #Quote by Jack Layton
Wasielewski Senate quotes by Bill Richardson
#9. I'd like to see that bipartisanship come back that we used to have in the House of Representatives, in the Clinton years. I think there's a possibility that the voters are going to send the message that everybody running - Congress, the Senate, the presidency - that they want us to come together. #Quote by Bill Richardson
Wasielewski Senate quotes by Robert Caro
#10. Someday a political genius will come along and make the Senate work. #Quote by Robert Caro
Wasielewski Senate quotes by Robert M. Gates
#11. I took a telephone call from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. He told me that he was the one who had talked Obama into running for president (a lot of people were claiming that) but there was no candidate for vice president. Reid said he was thinking about me, and that was the reason for the call. It took a lot of willpower for me to keep from bursting out laughing. #Quote by Robert M. Gates
Wasielewski Senate quotes by John Ensign
#12. I loved being in the Senate. That was a wonderful experience. #Quote by John Ensign
Wasielewski Senate quotes by Arlen Specter
#13. When the 14th Amendment, equal protection clause was enacted, the galleries in the Senate were segregated. Now we have integration. #Quote by Arlen Specter
Wasielewski Senate quotes by Robert Caro
#14. Now, for this book I had to learn the world of the Senate, which is really for all that's written about the Senate, an unknowing world and its mores, and the way things work with subcommittees and all. I loved learning about that. #Quote by Robert Caro
Wasielewski Senate quotes by Sibel Edmonds
#15. And I am saying, how about the other two branches? And putting the pressure on our representatives in the Senate and the Congress, and the court system. They should be counter-acting this corruption, but they are sitting there silent. #Quote by Sibel Edmonds
Wasielewski Senate quotes by Debbie Stabenow

Wasielewski Senate quotes by James Madison
#18. In order to judge of the form to be given to this institution the Senate, it will be proper to take a view of the ends to be served by it. These were,first, to protect the people against their rulers, secondly, to protect the people against the transient impressions into which they themselves might be led. #Quote by James Madison
Wasielewski Senate quotes by John Adams
#19. The rich, the well-born, and the able, acquire an influence among the people that will soon be too much for simple honesty and plain sense, in a house of representatives. The most illustrious of them must, therefore, be separated from the mass, and placed by themselves in a senate; this is, to all honest and useful intents, an ostracism. #Quote by John Adams
Wasielewski Senate quotes by Edward Gibbon
#20. The policy of the emperors and the senate, as far as it concerned religion, was happily seconded by the reflections of the enlightened, and by the habits of the superstitious, part of their subjects. The various modes of worship, which prevailed in the Roman world, were all considered by the people, as equally true; by the philosopher, as equally false; and by the magistrate, as equally useful. And thus toleration produced not only mutual indulgence, but even religious concord. #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Wasielewski Senate quotes by Saxby Chambliss
#21. Let me be clear: There is no stronger advocate for civil liberties in the Senate than myself. #Quote by Saxby Chambliss
Wasielewski Senate quotes by Robert A. Caro
#22. Johnson's voting record - a record twenty years long, dating back to his arrival in the House of Representatives in 1937 and continuing up to that very day - was consistent with the accent and the word. During those twenty years, he had never supported civil rights legislation - any civil rights legislation. In Senate and House alike, his record was an unbroken one of votes against every civil rights bill that had ever come to a vote: against voting rights bills; against bills that would have struck at job discrimination and at segregation in other areas of American life; even against bills that would have protected blacks from lynching. #Quote by Robert A. Caro
Wasielewski Senate quotes by James Madison
#23. The man who is possessed of wealth, who lolls on his sofa, or rolls in his carriage, cannot judge of the wants or feelings of the day laborer. The government we mean to erect is intended to last for ages ... unless wisely provided against, what will become of your government? In England, at this day, if elections were open to all classes of people, the property of the landed proprietors would be insecure. An agrarian law would soon take place. If these observations be just, our government ought to secure the permanent interests of the country against innovation. Landholders ought to have a share in the government, to support these invaluable interests, and to balance and check the other. They ought to be so constituted as to protect the minority of the opulent against the majority. The senate, therefore, ought to be this body; and to answer these purposes ... #Quote by James Madison
Wasielewski Senate quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#24. The constitution has divided the powers of government into three branches, Legislative, Executive and Judiciary, lodging each with a distinct magistracy. The Legislative it has given completely to the Senate and House of Representatives. It has declared that the Executive powers shall be vested in the President, submitting special articles of it to a negative by the Senate, and it has vested the Judiciary power in the courts of justice, with certain exceptions also in favor of the Senate. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Wasielewski Senate quotes by William J. Clinton
#25. When I became president with a commitment to reform health care, Hillary was a natural to head the health care task force. You all know we failed because we couldn't break a Senate filibuster. Hillary immediately went to work on solving the problems the bill sought to address one by one. #Quote by William J. Clinton
Wasielewski Senate quotes by Henry Adams
#26. Although the Senate is much given to admiring in its members a superiority less obvious or quite invisible to outsiders, one Senator seldom proclaims his own inferiority to another, and still more seldom likes to be told of it. #Quote by Henry Adams
Wasielewski Senate quotes by Robert Harris
#27. In the spring, during the Festival of Flora, when Rome was crowded with visitors from all over Italy, Clodius's mob found itself for once outnumbered by ordinary citizens who despised their bullying tactics. Clodius himself was actually jeered at the theatre. Unused to anything other than adulation from the people, according to Atticus he looked around him in astonishment at the slow handclapping, taunts, whistles and obscene gestures, and realised - almost too late - that he was in danger of being lynched. He retreated hastily, and that was the beginning of the end of his domination, for the Senate now recognised how he could be beaten: by appealing over the heads of the #Quote by Robert Harris
Wasielewski Senate quotes by John F. Kennedy
#28. All of us in the Senate live in an iron lung-the iron lung of politics, and it is no easy task to emerge from that rarified atmosphere in order to breathe the same fresh air our constituents breathe. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Wasielewski Senate quotes by Steve Flowers
#29. Being Governor of a state is generally considered a prelude or stepping stone to a U.S. Senate seat. Not so in Alabama. The governor's office has always seemed to be the ultimate brass ring #Quote by Steve Flowers
Wasielewski Senate quotes by Allen West
#30. But when I look at the fact that today is 1,000 days that we have not had a budget for the United States of America, you know, the House, one of the things we did, we passed a budget last year. But that is still sitting over there at the Senate. And so we have got to get this country back on track. #Quote by Allen West
Wasielewski Senate quotes by Carly Fiorina
#31. Obviously the Senate is a federal office, but to get California's economy moving again we need to do some things in the federal arena. #Quote by Carly Fiorina
