Last quote by Christopher S. Murphy

We've been hyper-confused for the past five years. We need to be hyper-focused on this issue of wage growth and job growth – I think Democrats are scared of this message because it's what Republicans have been talking about.feedback

Christopher S. Murphy quotes

Jun 01 2017 - Trump Presidency

Dear planet, we're sorry. Please just hang on for three and a half more years and we'll fix this. We promise.feedback

May 18 2017

I hold Senator Lieberman's seat, he's no pushover, as both parties know. He's been a pain in the butt to both Republicans and Democrats during his time both in and out of the Senate. I think the question is whether you want someone with a political pedigree or whether you want someone with a law enforcement pedigree. And I think there's a lot of people on both sides of the aisle that are looking for someone who doesn't come from the political realm.feedback

May 18 2017 - Trump Presidency

Don't assume that this democracy holds for another 230 years. You've got to be actively tending to it and protecting it.feedback

May 16 2017

Just leaving Senate floor. Lots of chatter from Ds and Rs about the exact definition of 'obstruction of justice.feedback

May 12 2017

This whole administration is starting to look like a bit of a get-rich-quick scheme.feedback

May 11 2017 - Trump Presidency

This administration clearly has no idea about the scope of the heroin crisis across this country. They are waging a war on the funds that we use to try to combat the opioid epidemic, and it's hard for me to understand. You zero out money for the oversight of the drug epidemic, and you slash funding for the agencies that combat the epidemic – that's a recipe for this epidemic to explode.feedback

May 11 2017

We clearly have the option of slowing down the proceedings of the Senate if there's not proper response from Republicans.feedback

May 10 2017 - Russia

It certainly feels like this is in response or connection to a growing scope of the Russia investigation.feedback

May 10 2017

Clearly the time is now for an independent prosecutor. The Senate, designed by the founding fathers as the guardian of democratic norms, must now rise to meet the gravity of this moment.feedback

May 04 2017 - American politics

To tell this story and drive its approval ratings down from 18 to 8.feedback

May 04 2017 - American politics

I hope this thing is dead on arrival, and I hope that a ton of House members lose their seat for voting for something this inhumane.feedback

May 01 2017 - Human Rights

We are watching in real time as the American human rights bully pulpit disintegrates into ash.feedback

Apr 28 2017

I wanted to show some of the faces of Washington's inaction – to share a small sliver of the lives we've lost because our nation is overflowing with guns. This issue is only controversial in the halls of Congress. Outside Washington, people understand the horror of gun violence and are increasingly unwilling to tolerate a Congress that is owned and operated by the gun lobby.feedback

Apr 12 2017 - Syria conflict

[A]n ill-thought out military action with absolutely no overall strategy for Syria risks dragging us further into a civil war in which we cannot tip the scales. And put in the context of U.S. policies that aid the slaughter of civilians in Yemen and deny terrorized Syrians the ability to flee their dystopian existence, a solitary air strike exposes the immoral hypocrisy of this administration's policy in the Middle East.feedback

Apr 11 2017 - Russia

It speaks to the broader incoherence of this administration's foreign policy. There's now some pretty important meat on the bones of this story. The imperative remains to get to the bottom of it.feedback

Apr 06 2017

At some point, we have to decide if we want to be the Senate or the House of Representatives, and hopefully after today we can all sit down together and decide if we're going to maintain any of the Senate's normal prerogatives.feedback

Apr 05 2017 - Trump Presidency

The worry about impartiality is certainly connected to the private sector experience but it's also to your very deep political involvement as well.feedback

Mar 28 2017 - Climate change

Future generations will judge President Trump for this attack on our health and our safety. The Republican party is going to extraordinary lengths to deny that this meteor that is global warming is careening toward us.feedback

Mar 15 2017 - Democratic Party

There is a big open space in the Democratic Party right now for the articulation of a progressive foreign policy.feedback

Mar 15 2017

There are no easy answers anymore. The bad guys are super-shadowy or are sometimes not the bad guys. One day China's a bad guy, one day they're an indispensable economic partner. One day Russia's our enemy, the next day we're sitting on the same side of the negotiating table with them. That makes for a really confusing moment.feedback

Mar 15 2017 - Climate change

American values don't begin and end with destroyers and aircraft carriers. American values come by helping countries fight corruption to build stability. American values flow through tackling climate change and building energy independence. American values come through humanitarian assistance whereby we try to stop catastrophes from happening.feedback

Mar 15 2017 - Oil

We're getting what we pay for. The world is more chaotic today, there are more unstable, ungovernable countries in part because the United States doesn't help you when it comes to promoting stability. The Russians are bullying countries with oil and gas, the Chinese are making massive economic investments around the world, ISIS and extremist groups are using propaganda and the internet to grow their reach. And as the rest of the world has been figuring out that power can be projected in non-military means very effectively, the United States has not made that transition.feedback

Mar 15 2017 - Islam

I don't think there is any way that the United States is going to decide which version of Islam ultimately prevails globally, and it would be frankly improper for us to try to play that role. What I'm saying is that it should speak to who our allies are and who our allies aren't. We should be choosing alliances with countries that are trying to spread moderate Islam and … we should question our alliances with countries that are spreading intolerant versions of Islam.feedback

Mar 15 2017

Here's what I'm trying to say: When the U.S. is an active participant in a foreign war, what comes with that is an increased responsibility to try to rescue civilians from the harm done in part by U.S. munitions and U.S. targeting.feedback

Mar 15 2017

I think Donald Trump believes in putting a wall around America and hoping everything turns out OK. I believe that the only way that you can protect America is by being forward-deployed [in the world] in a manner that is not just through the point of a spear.feedback

Mar 15 2017

There's so many people in Washington that get paid money to think about ways that America can fix the world. And the idea that America is in some places helpless really doesn't pay the bills. So you are constantly getting told as a member of Congress: 'Here's the solution where America can solve this problem.feedback

Mar 15 2017 - Islam

A progressive foreign policy isn't just looking at the back-end of terrorism, but is also looking at the front-end of terrorism. And at the front-end of terrorism is bad U.S. military policy in the Middle East, is the Saudi funding of a very intolerant brand of Islam that becomes the building block of extremism, and poverty and political instability. I appreciate a president who is willing to ask some big questions about the prior rules of the game when it came to how the United States funds or directs foreign policy.feedback

Mar 15 2017 - Iraq

Is that it's an answer to how we exist in the world with a big footprint that doesn't repeat the mistakes of the Iraq War.feedback

Mar 15 2017

I think progressives understand that we are Americans at the same time as we are global citizens. We are interested first and foremost in creating peace and prosperity here at home, but we aren't blind to the fact that injustice anywhere in the world is meaningful, important, and worth thinking about. I felt this moment in which even some Democrats and progressives were maybe thinking about closing doors. And I want to make the case that the progressive movement should be thinking about the world.feedback

Feb 19 2017 - Iran

There's going to be a conversation about what the proportional response is. But I don't necessarily think there's going to be partisan division over whether or not we have the ability as a Congress to speak on issues outside of the nuclear agreement. We have to make a decision whether we are going to get involved in the emerging proxy war in a bigger way than we are today, between Iran and Saudi.feedback

Feb 18 2017 - NATO

Looks like we have 2 governments. @VP just gave speech about shared values btwn US and Europe as @POTUS openly wages war on those values.feedback

Feb 15 2017 - U.S. National Security Adviser

An independent, nonpartisan commission is the only way to really get to the bottom of this. Give it subpoena power and allow it to do what the Republicans have been explicit that the two existing intelligence committee investigations are not going to do.feedback

Feb 15 2017 - Russia

While this is not wholly unprecedented, it's part of a series of aggressive actions by Russia that threaten U.S. national security and the security of our allies.feedback

Feb 15 2017

President Trump and his administration must end their silence and immediately respond to these threats to our national security.feedback

Feb 14 2017 - Israeli relations

There's a lot of mending of fences that has to happen between the Netanyahu government and a lot of Democrats who feel like he unnecessarily politicized the U.S.-Israeli relationship.feedback

Feb 14 2017

If you can't manage your own financial affairs, how can we expect that you're going to be a responsible steward of a dangerous, lethal firearm.feedback

Feb 09 2017

Ha! As a prosecutor, Dick used to put guys like u in jail. Now, u use your position to mock vets, he uses his to make their lives better.feedback

Jan 30 2017

This, ultimately, is going to get Americans killed. I believe it. We have now handed them a path to rebirth...this is a huge win for hardliners.feedback

Jan 18 2017

If President Trump moves forward with his plan to ban gun-free school zones, will you support that proposal?feedback

Jan 17 2017

When Betsy DeVos appears before the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, I will have some important questions for her and for the members of our committee who will vote on her nomination. I want to know how Congress would put someone who has spent her life trying to strip funding from public schools in charge of those very schools.feedback

Jan 11 2017

I'm looking for a leader who will be an advocate for growing diplomacy as a tool in our national security toolkit, and who doesn't shy away from confronting countries like Russia over increased aggression.feedback

Dec 07 2016

Of course, I know firsthand what a fierce fighter Linda McMahon is, and though we haven't always seen eye to eye, I have confidence she'll bring that fight to the SBA on behalf of Connecticut small businesses.feedback

Dec 05 2016 - Taiwan

Pressing China on Taiwan won't likely bring them to the table on North Korea and currency. Risks backing them into a dark, nasty corner.feedback

Dec 02 2016 - Taiwan

Foreign policy consistency is a means, not an end. It's not sacred. Thus, it's Trump's right to shift policy, alliances, strategy.feedback

Dec 02 2016

It would be a really dangerous precedent to break here.feedback

Sep 08 2016 - Daesh

Thousands of civilians are being killed, and terrorist groups inside the country, like al Qaeda and ISIS, are getting stronger. Until the Saudis' conduct changes, the U.S. should put a pause on further arms sales.feedback

Jun 16 2016

There are going to be a lot of voters in this country who are going to watch ... the votes that are cast next week.feedback
