“An attack on one who serves is an attack on all who serves…” Speaker of the House John Boehner

“I think we would all agree that there is a place for a vigorous spirited debate in this country, but we need to do it in a way that’s respectful of other peoples’ views. And in that regard Gabby Giffords was a role model. She was a person who was passionate about issues but very even-tempered in her approach to things. She is really one of our brightest lights in the United States Congress.” — Representative Chris Van Hollen (D, Maryland) on This Week with Christiane Amanpour
