Public Statements

Two Great Presidencies

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mr. DREIER. Madam Speaker, let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.

Madam Speaker, those are among the brilliant words that 50 years ago today were delivered by President John F. Kennedy as he was inaugurated. In 3 hours we are going to be marking that inaugural with a ceremony in the great rotunda. And I think it's very important, Madam Speaker, as we do that to remember not only John F. Kennedy's commitment to our Nation's security, but to once again underscore his passionate commitment to our economic security by his implementation of pro-growth economic policies that were replicated 30 years ago today when Ronald Reagan became President of the United States and pursued the same kinds of pro-growth policies that President John F. Kennedy pursued.

I hope very much, Madam Speaker, that we can learn from the lessons of both of these great Presidencies.
