Hoyer Releases Statement on Veterans Day

November 10, 2017

Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) released the following statement on November 9, 2017, in recognition of Veterans Day, which is observed tomorrow, Friday, November 10:

“On Veterans Day, families and communities gather to honor the service and sacrifices of those who have worn the uniform of our nation. For those who bear the physical and mental scars of war we pay a special tribute, and we pledge to continue caring for them in recognition of all they have given to secure our freedom. Let us never forget the debt we owe to all who have served – on this day and every day.

“There is much we can learn from our nation’s veterans. Those who have served understand the meaning of duty and honor, selflessness and humility. They know what it means to put country first and to see not the differences that separate us but the commonalities that bind us as Americans. In our deeply divided country, I hope we can use this opportunity to draw inspiration from our veterans and recognize that we are one nation, united by common dreams and a common flag.

“I will continue to work to make certain the new Community-Based Outpatient Clinic in Charlotte Hall, and its satellite location in Lexington Park, moves forward. These facilities are long overdue, and will ensure our veterans have access to high-quality health care in Southern Maryland.”

    He needs to go

  2. that wasn't a recorded vote on November 11, 2017 at 3:58 pm

    Good question: has Hoyer, during his long tenure in Congress, have any of the Maryland Congress, put in legislation to make sure they’re on the record for every vote they take? Hmmm let me see if I can pull it up. There are a few different ways the House and Senate can vote, not all of them are on the record, shocking. On the record means that the votes can be traced back to the individual members of Congress, all of them, not some of them. Why, after Sarbanes, why after Mikulski, is Congress still not on the record for the way it votes? Why are the Commissioners on the record, the General Assembly (Delegates) on the record, and Congress isn’t?

    I wish this guy would just go away already. His leftist policies are killing us.

    Steny continues to stand on the back of our veterans and military while supporting policies that favor NON-citizens over American veterans!
