-Senator John Cornyn, April 4, 2005

“Yeah! If we want to stop violence in our courthouses we really need the judges to stop making legal decisions that contradict what the Republicans want to do! You know.. for the kids.”

Grassley . . . who supports individual accounts and whose position makes him the most important senator on the issue, said he planned to put Social Security legislation before his committee in July but added, ‘The president may not succeed in as clear-cut a manner as I might have hoped.’"
-New York Times, April 3, 2005
