Congress quotes and quotations

The Senate is a place filled with goodwill and good intentions, and if the road to hell is paved with them, then it's a pretty good detour.
Hubert H. Humphrey

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

Congress is functioning the way the Founding Fathers intended-not very well. They understood that if you move too quickly, our democracy will be less responsible to the majority.
Barber B. Conable, Jr.

It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly American criminal class except Congress.
Mark Twain

Congress will pass a law restricting public comment on the Internet to individuals who have spent a minimum of one hour actually accomplishing a specific task while on line.
Andy Grove

Suppose you were an idiot and suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.
Mark Twain

You can't use tact with a Congressman! A Congressman is a hog! You must take a stick and hit him on the snout!
Henry Brooks Adams

I don't mind what Congress does, as long as they don't do it in the streets and frighten the horses.
Victor Hugo

Congress, the press, and the bureaucracy too often focus on how much money or effort is spent, rather than whether the money or effort actually achieves the announced goal.
Donald Rumsfeld

This country has come to feel the same when Congress is in session as when the baby gets hold of a hammer.
Will Rogers

A republican stands up in congress and says 'I GOT A REALLY BAD IDEA!!' and the democrat stands up after him and says 'AND I CAN MAKE IT SHITTIER!!'
Lewis Black

I've said many a time that I think the Un-American Activities Committee in the House of Representatives was the most un-American thing in America!
Harry S. Truman

I don't think it's the function of Congress to function well. It should drag its heels on the way to decision.
Barber B. Conable, Jr.

Don't try to go too fast. Learn your job. Don't ever talk until you know what you're talking about.... If you want to get along, go along.
Sam Rayburn

If I studied all my life, I couldn't think up half the number of funny things passed in one session of congress.
Will Rogers

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


During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet.
Al Gore

"Do you pray for the Senators, Dr. Hale?" someone asked the chaplain. "No, I look at the Senators and pray for the country.".
Edward Everett Hale

No man, however strong, can serve ten years as schoolmaster, priest, or Senator, and remain fit for anything else.
Henry Brooks Adams

Congress acknowledged that society's accumulated myths and fears about disability and disease are as handicapping as are the physical limitations that flow from actual impairment.
William J. Brennan, Jr.
