Senate Quotes

Image Quotes about Senate




Gouverneur Morris - [In 1787, delegates to the constitutional convention determined that the Senate alone, and not the executive, had the power to nominate and confirm judicial nominees. But by the end of the convention, the framers' views had evolved. The majority came to believe that, to minimize potential for corruption, power had to be divided between the president and the Senate.] As the president was to nominate, ... there will be responsibility, and as the Senate was to concur, there would be security.

Jean Robert Lafortune  - The governor has the good fortune to have the House and the Senate controlled by his party. If he says he has failed to get funding for those initiatives being proposed by the advisory board, I think this is an indication of his leadership or his commitment regarding Haiti. Many Haitian Americans want temporary protected status for refugees trying to escape political turmoil in the homeland. The fact that the advisory board didn't make TPS a priority sent a bad vibe to the Haitian community here. It seems the advisory board had a political aim to it, instead of a humanitarian aim that people think it should have. It was just a way for the governor to appease the Haitian community by showing that he's doing something good.
