Sen. Burr Kicks off consideration of Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act with floor speech

Date: 10/20/2015

Jerry Ensminger testifies about toxic chemicals at Camp Lejeune that caused daughter’s death

Date: 09/29/2015

Sen. Burr testifies on toxic exposure at Camp Lejeune

Date: 09/29/2015
I remain appalled at how the US government has treated these service members and their families. Our government rewarded the sacrifices of these patriotic men and women by negligently poisoning them and their families and by engaging in a decade’s long cover-up. Regrettably, when science has confirmed the health hazards at Lejeune, the Department of Veterans Affairs responded not with urgency, but with denial and delay. I remain committed to holding the VA accountable and preventing bureaucrats from using discredited science to deny these brave men and women healthcare. Just recently, I learned that VA doctors were in various cases cherry picking the science, misrepresenting or misinterpreting scientific studies, using questionable sources, and overruling the opinions of veterans’ oncologists – completely inexcusable.

Sen. Burr on Iran deal “Our Nation’s security is too precious to be based on faith and hope alone”

Date: 09/14/2015
Last week, Senator Richard Burr, Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, outlined his reasons for opposing the President’s deal with Iran. The President’s deal “is based not on absolute knowledge of Iran’s activities or its intentions, including its nuclear ambitions, but is naively – and dangerously – based on faith and hope. Our Nation’s security is too precious to be based on faith and hope alone: Faith that we will detect any Iranian efforts to cheat, and hope that Iran will not cheat. We must accept the self-evident fact that Iran has a horrific record of complying with its nonproliferation commitments. And when our best tools are ‘faith’ and ‘hope’, we are putting our own national security, as well as our allies, at risk.”
