If the estimate of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs is correct, then Russia has lost the cold war in western Europe.
They [the Ittahadist leaders] have fabricated, for the benefit of Allied Powers, an alleged revolution stirred up by the Dashnak party. They have inflated the importance of isolated incidents and acts of self-defense by the Armenians and used it as an excuse to deport the bordering population. On the way. the Armenians have been murdered, on orders of the Committee, by gangs of Kurds and Turks and at times, even by gendarmes.
I am prepared to waive the privilege against self-incrimination and to tell you everything you wish to know about my views or actions if your Committee will agree to refrain from asking me to name other people. If the Committee is unwilling to give me this assurance, I will be forced to plead the privilege of the fifth amendment at the hearing.lillian hellman
[United States Senate Committee on Finance] Staff views it as inappropriate for a hospital to seek payment from a patient by sending a bill, (and) when payment is not received, to seek to recharacterize that debt as charity care. In addition, staff has found that the decision by some hospitals to include bad debt which often consists of very high charges from the (chargemaster list) provides a misleading and inflated accounting of a hospital 's charity care to policymakers and the public.

I hold no brief for Communists, but I believe in and will defend their right to act independently within the law. I question whether members of the Committee are interested in defending our form of government or whether they are attempting to suppress political opinion at odds with their own.gregory peck
Football combines the two worst things about America: it is violence punctuated by Committee meetings.
Being chairman of the Senate Ethics Committee is like jumping off a cliff. The thrill is very short.
As one of our colleagues recently put it, this Republican pledge of no new taxes is pure Bushlips. It's Bushlips when the president says 'No new taxes' and sends a budget requiring the Finance Committee to raise $20 billion in new revenues: $15 billion in taxes and $5 billion in user fees.lloyd bentsen
The purpose of this closed session in the Senate chamber is to finally give the truth to at least the members of the Senate—to finally call to task the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee.richard durbin
If Senator Reid had come to me and said, 'This is a problem,' which he never did, I would have said, 'Let's talk about it.' I would have said, 'Let's bring in the Intelligence Committee or the leaders, and let's talk about it in a civil, a dignified, a respectful way.'bill frist

It will be seen that, as used, the word ‘Fascism’ is almost entirely meaningless. In conversation, of course, it is used even more wildly than in print. I have heard it applied to farmers, shopkeepers, Social Credit, corporal punishment, fox-hunting, bull-fighting, the 1922 Committee, the 1941 Committee, Kipling, Gandhi, Chiang Kai-Shek, homosexuality, Priestley’s broadcasts, Youth Hostels, astrology, women, dogs and I do not know what else.george orwell

Indeed, the "whole bourgeoisie" on whose behalf the government was acting as its "Committee" was a composite of a vast multitude of businessmen appearing as a conglomeration of many different and divergent groups and interests.paul a. baran
I hope your Committee will not permit doubts as to constitutionality, however reasonable, to block the suggested legislation.franklin delano roosevelt
Lenin's methods [of "hard" centralism and mistrust of the working class] lead to this: the party organization substitutes itself for the party, the central Committee substitutes itself for the organization, and, finally, a "dictator" substitutes himself for the central Committee. ... The party must seek the guarantee of its stability in its own base, in an active and self-reliant proletariat, and not in its top caucus ... which the revolution may suddenly sweep away with its wing.
As I said in my comments to the Committee, [Fortran 90' would be a] nice language, too bad it's not Fortran.
