"As we watch the news from Colorado with horror and sympathy for the families, we should remember that each day more than 80 Americans are killed by gunfire, unnecessary tragedies."
"A clear majority of Americans support removing the cost-sharing requirement for prescription contraceptive coverage."
"Before this day is out, 18 more veterans will have taken their own lives. That is the daily average, it is intolerable, and it has to stop."
Says in 1944 "we were in debt more than twice as much as we are now."
Says "as a share of the US economy, the government’s support for research and development (R&D) has fallen by nearly two-thirds since the 1960s."
