Quotes of Dianne Feinstein

‘No Child Left Behind’ requires states and school districts to ensure that all students are learning and are reaching their highest potential. Special education students should not be left out of these accountability mechanisms. /Dianne Feinstein /

Instead of starting a new nuclear arms race, now is the time to reclaim our Nation’s position of leadership on nuclear nonproliferation efforts. /Dianne Feinstein /

Our climate is changing. The Earth’s climate has, in fact, warmed by 1.1 to 1.6 degrees Fahrenheit since the industrial revolution. People look at this and say: Oh, that is not very much. In fact, it is very much, and it changes the dynamic. It impacts species. It kills some. It diminishes the carbon sink of the ocean. It does a number of things. /Dianne Feinstein /

The criteria for serving one’s country should be competence, courage and willingness to serve. When we deny people the chance to serve because of their sexual orientation, we deprive them of their rights of citizenship, and we deprive our armed forces the service of willing and capable Americans. /Dianne Feinstein /

Winning may not be everything, but losing has little to recommend it. /Dianne Feinstein /

We have a chance to wind down and expedite the removal of 96 percent of the world’s nuclear weapons. What an achievement it would be, if at the end of the next administration, we could say that the nuclear arsenals of both Russia and the United States had been reduced to the barest minimums. /Dianne Feinstein /

Toughness doesn’t have to come in a pinstripe suit. /Dianne Feinstein /

It is my hope that the number of stem cell lines available for federally-funded research will be expanded so that the government can continue to participate in this vital research and provide hope to the millions of Americans with diseases that might be cured. /Dianne Feinstein /

Global warming is real. It is happening today. It is being charted by our satellites. It is being charted by our scientists. It is being charted by those of us in this body, and I think the real key is if we are ready to admit that fact and take the action to make the necessary conversion. /Dianne Feinstein /

Banning guns addresses a fundamental right of all Americans to feel safe. /Dianne Feinstein /

Women have begun to see that if I go through that doorway, I take everybody through it. /Dianne Feinstein /

The time has come to repeal ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.’ It is the right thing to do. Every American should have the opportunity to serve their country, regardless of race, sex, creed, or sexual orientation. /Dianne Feinstein /

Let me say this: I believe closing Guantanamo is in our Nation’s national security interest. Guantanamo is used not only by al-Qaida, but also by other nations, governments, and individuals – people good and bad – as a symbol of America’s abuse of Muslims, and it is fanning the flames of anti-Americanism around the world. /Dianne Feinstein /

It is my belief that tax credits only go to people who are making money, and they generally keep it. /Dianne Feinstein /

For the life of me, I don’t understand what honest motive there is in putting this in front of this body to philosophically debate marriage on a constitutional amendment that is not going to happen, and which is enormously divisive in all of our communities. /Dianne Feinstein /

You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play it better than anyone else. /Dianne Feinstein /

Today we have a health insurance industry where the first and foremost goal is to maximize profits for shareholders and CEOs, not to cover patients who have fallen ill or to compensate doctors and hospitals for their services. It is an industry that is increasingly concentrated and where Americans are paying more to receive less. /Dianne Feinstein /

Rogue internet pharmacies continue to pose a serious threat to the health and safety of Americans. Simply put, a few unethical physicians and pharmacists have become drug suppliers to a nation. /Dianne Feinstein /

I basically believe the medical insurance industry should be nonprofit, not profit-making. There is no way a health reform plan will work when it is implemented by an industry that seeks to return money to shareholders instead of using that money to provide health care. /Dianne Feinstein /

Ninety percent of leadership is the ability to communicate something people want. /Dianne Feinstein /
