Ms. LORETTA SANCHEZ of California. Mr. Speaker, Democrats have stepped up the fight against terrorists and are getting real results that make Americans safe. Democrats are strengthening our security by restoring America's global leadership. We have ended torture. We are working with our allies and are getting countries like Pakistan to cooperate in the fight against terrorism. We have increased funding for counterintelligence activities and human intelligence collection. We have enhanced cybersecurity efforts and bolstered aviation, ports, and border security.

We are ensuring troops, veterans, and their families have the support they need on the battlefield and when they come home. That means state-of-the-art equipment and body armor and mine-resistant vehicles that they need to bring them home safely. And we have also made historic investments in our veterans' health care and improved the benefits they have earned when they return home. And we passed a GI Bill for a new generation so that our troops and their family members will have access to a quality education.

Mr. Speaker, Democrats are making America stronger.
