Topic: Congress

Joaquin Castro, TX US Rep
With only 67 bills or so passed into law, "2013 was the least productive year in congressional history since we’ve been keeping record."
Some 73 bills made it into law in 2013, which was the least by 15 for any year since 1947.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand D-N.Y.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand Renews Push for Senate Vote on Military Sexual Assault
“It’s Congress' responsibility to act as if the brave survivors of sexual assault are our sons, our daughters, our husbands and our lives who are being betrayed by the greatest military on earth.
Ted Cruz Rep Tx
Republicans shut down Ted Cruz
Though Cruz insists he does not want a government shutdown, some of his Senate colleagues say that’s where his plan would end up.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney
In wake of Senate report, Dick Cheney says terrorists 'not covered by the Geneva Convention'
The truth is unlawful combatants are still accorded a minimum degree of protection, including a ban on "violence to life and person, in particular murder of all kinds, mutilation, cruel treatment and torture," and "outrages upon personal dignity, in particular humiliating and degrading treatment," both of which have been validated by the Supreme Court.
Peter King R-ny
Peter King says Senate CIA report found detainees were not killed, did not suffer 'lasting injuries'.
King minimized what the report said.   Someone did die, an eye was lost, detainees were made to stand on broken limbs and deprived of sleep for 180 hours.  One detainee suffered chronic hemorrhoids and anal fissure due to rectal feeding.  All likely suffer with PTSD.
The 114th Congress is way more Christian than the rest of America.
Nearly 92 percent of the House and Senate are Christian, compared to 73 percent of American adults. 57% are Protestant, 30% are Catholic, and 5% are Jewish. Twenty percent of Americans are unaffiliated, yet only .02% of congress are unaffiliated.
Congress has 11 percent approval ratings, yet a 96.4 percent re-election rate.
It does not make sense that voters hold Congress in such low regard, yet they re-elect almost everyone.
Lindsey Graham R Sc
"As president I would deploy the military against Congress."
What Lindsey Graham is proposing to physically force members of Congress to stay until they vote how he commands. MSN News says his plan violates constitutional separation of powers in just about the most extreme way imaginable, by forcing the executive branch's will on the legislature.
Tom Cotton Ak Gop House
Says that "Susan Rice, the president's national security adviser, has already conceded that Iran will have a robust uranium enrichment capability."
Cotton essentially puts words in Rice’s mouth when he says she "conceded" that Iran will keep a "robust" enrichment capability. She didn’t use those words in the AIPAC speech.
Rush Limbaugh
Says "Ted Kennedy sent a letter to then Soviet leader Yuri Andropov apologizing for Ronald Reagan and begging the Soviets not to overreact."
There is no evidence there ever was a letter from Kennedy. Limbaugh’s statement rests on a 1983 KGB memo that said there was a verbal overture from a friend of Kennedy's to meet with Andropov. 
Mitt Romney
Says Hillary Clinton "erased all of her emails even though they were subject to recall and review by Congress."
Romney got it wrong when he spoke of all of her emails. 30,000 emails were turned over to the State Department. Clinton did respond to congressional subpoenas, and there is no proof she destroyed evidence subject to a congressional investigation.
Borui Wang
Successful immigrant entrepreneurs and innovators testify to congress calling for action on high-skilled immigration reform.
Borui Wang, founder of, says his company is creating American jobs, and it is not in anyone's interest to make him constantly wait for a lottery that might deport him. Watch and share this video to learn more.
