Quotes from the news wire:
All cowards. All of them, now they say,' Well, this will get done. Maybe after we get back from our summer recess, maybe during the lame duck' — because they're on Senate time. Do you understand you live around here ? Senate time is ridiculous. These mother *** ers live to 200. They're tortoises. They live forever and they never lose their jobs and they never lose their benefits and they never lose all those things. Well, they're not on Senate time. They're on human time. Cancer time.
What just makes the gut punch that much more devastating is that these people all came down here so that they could finally tell the men and -- their constituents are dying. And they're gon na get it done after recess ? You don't -- tell their cancer to take a recess, tell their cancer to stay home and go visit their families.
So ain't this a bitch ? america's heroes, who fought our wars, outside sweating their asses off, with oxygen battling all kinds of ailments, while these motherf *** ers sit in the air conditioning walled off from any of it ? They don't have to hear it. They don't have to see it. They don't have to understand that these are human beings. Did you get it yet ?
You're tenacity personified and the way you've carried the banner for your family and your loved ones and in their pain, that's the thing, you know. Advocating for causes is a very it's a lovely thing to do but to do that in your grief when you know that it's not going to help your loved one, But that's not what matters to you. It’s that no one goes through what you went through. And that's just the epitome of grace.

The bottom line is our country exposed our own veterans to poison for years, and we knew about it, and we did not act with urgency and appropriateness, and therefore, we've lost men and women who served this country. They've died out of our inaction.

I think I get concerned with who gets to decide what … In the Iraq War, I was on the side of what you would think on the mainstream is misinformation. I was promoting what they would call misinformation, but it turned out to be right years later and the establishment media was wrong. And not only were they wrong, in some respects, you could make the case that they enabled a war that killed hundreds and hundreds of thousands of people and never paid a price for it and never had accountability. And just having an ombudsman print a retraction to me isn't accountability.
Does anyone know when that started, playing the national anthem before games? It’s such a weird ritual, i’ve always thought about when Kaepernick took the knee and the whole thing was like, ‘You gotta stand for the anthem!’… But, like, why is that?

I think this community is at the end of their rope, i think there's a feeling of disbelief, that they can't understand why they have to continually saddle up and ride down to Washington and make these appeals for something that should be simple but is somehow, through politics, made agonizingly difficult.
Sick and dying, they brought themselves down here to speak and no one, shameful, it's an embarrassment to the country and a stain on this institution. You should be ashamed of yourselves for those who aren't here but you won't be because accountability doesn't appear to be something that occurs in this chamber.
