  • “It is virtually impossible to compete in today's global economy without a college degree.”

  • “In fact, the Harvard study data indicates that 70 percent of African American children attend schools that are predominately African American, about the same level as in 1968 when Dr. King died.”

  • “Obviously, there has to be a profound change in direction. Otherwise, interest on the national debt will start eating up virtually every penny that we have.”

  • “Another example of the educational inequality is the current debate over publicly financed school vouchers which will provide educational opportunities to a privileged handful, but deprive public schools of desperately needed resources.”

  • “We can play politics, or we can reduce crime.”

  • “And what is needed to prevent them from joining gangs was ample recreation for boys as well as girls, jobs and internships for training and money, and assistance to allow their families to live in decent homes.”

  • “We live in an information and knowledge-based economy.”

  • “Mandatory minimums have been shown to be discriminatory and waste the taxpayers' money.”

  • “Present law has a process to ascertain whether or not a patient is in a persistent vegetative state, and it should not matter what politicians think.”

  • “I think we should worry about Social Security first and then tax cuts second.”

  • “While there are many obstacles that deter students from going to college, finances by no means should be the deciding factor.”

  • “The first year of the Bush administration we used up all of the surplus and ended up just with the Social Security and Medicare surplus, and each year worse than the year before.”

  • “The Federal prison population has increased more than 7-fold over the past 20 years.”

  • “One of the problems with even suggesting that purpose of a Federal law is for law enforcement officers to assist in protecting the public outside their jurisdictions is that it may give them encouragement or even a sense of obligation to do so.”​

Bobby Scott

  • “Unfortunately, the elimination of incentives such as parole, good time credits and funding for college courses, means that fewer inmates participate in and excel in literacy, education, treatment and other development programs.”

  • “If we increase spending, we have got to raise taxes or any combination.”

  • “We can be more inclusive.”

  • “We can fight Big Industry.”

  • “These funds will ensure that ports will be able to pay for adequate security measures to protect all Americans against terrorist attacks from our seaports.”

  • “We can continue our progress as a Nation toward the promise that all people are created equal and that our Nation will treat every person in that spirit.”

  • “Each year over 2,500 commercial vessels enter the Port of Hampton Roads alone, so adequate funding for port security is a significant issue for those of us who live in Richmond and Hampton Roads.”

  • “In the Brown decision, the United States Supreme Court unanimously struck down the legal and moral footing of racially segregated public education in this country.”

  •  “Unequal funding resources also results in unequal educational opportunity when you consider studies that show that one half of low income students who are qualified to attend college do not attend because they can't afford to.”

  • “So, the struggle for equal educational opportunity continues.”

  • “The destinies of the two races in this country are indissolubly linked together, and the interests of both require that the common government of all shall not permit the seeds of race hate to be planted under the sanction of law.”
