Congress quotes

Lichty And Wagner
Oh, I don't blame Congress. If I had $600 billion at my disposal, I'd be irresponsible, too.

Henry Wilson
I believe if we introduced the Lord's Prayer here, senators would propose a large number of amendments to it.

Marcus Tullius Cicero
Great is the power, great is the authority of a senate that is unanimous in its opinions.

Boris Marshalov
Congress is so strange. A man gets up to speak and says nothing. Nobody listens - and then everybody disagrees.

Senator John Kerry
The country and the Congress were misled into war. I regret that we were not given the truth as I said more than a year ago, knowing what we know now, I would not have gone to war in Iraq. And knowing now the full measure of the Bush Administration's duplicity and incompetence, I doubt there are many members of Congress who would give them the authority they abused so badly. I know I would not.

Shirley Chisholm
Congress seems drugged and inert most of the time... its idea of meeting a problem is to hold hearings or, in extreme cases, to appoint a commission.

Alexis De Tocqueville
The debates of that great assembly are frequently vague and perplexed, seeming to be dragged rather than to march, to the intended goal. Something of this sort must, I think, always happen in public democratic assemblies.

Senator John Kerry
It's a sad day when you have members of Congress who are literally criminals go undisciplined by their colleagues. No wonder people look at Washington and know this city is broken.
