Angus King said : “It should go without saying – no one should have to choose between getting an education or keeping a roof above their head,” “Our youth and veterans pursuing higher education are there to improve their lives and invest in their future and it’s completely unfair for them to lose federal housing support because they are investing their time and energy in seeking a college degree. The Housing for Homeless Students Act is a necessary, commonsense, and bipartisan step to right this wrong and ensure America’s youth and veterans have equal opportunities to grow, learn, and succeed” External link

Angus King said : “Waterville has historically been the center of activity in northern Kennebec County and neighboring communities in Somerset; it’s a cornerstone of the economy for the region,” “The new two way-traffic on Main Street will bring more customers to small businesses, improve traffic flow, and make foot traffic better for pedestrians. Today’s ribbon cutting is a testament to the hard work of the city and to the value of the partnerships they’ve formed with Colby College and the MaineDOT. I’m proud to have supported funding for this significant project and look forward to seeing its impacts for years to come” External link

Angus King said : “The first interview I did for our Veterans History Project in Maine was with a fellow named Carmine Pecorelli,” “Carmine enlisted at 17 in the Navy and World War Two. He then came back into service in the Air Force in Korea and came back into service in the Army in Vietnam. Three wars, three different services. We just lost him a few months ago – so that’s a piece of history that would have been lost but is preserved because of this project” External link

Angus King said : “This has been a learning experience for me. I’m on the Armed Services and the Intelligence Committee, so I spend a great deal of time with the policies that our veterans, when they were in active duty, were executing,” “It’s been very educational for me. One of the things, for example, that I’ve noticed is the incredible importance and value of the GI Bill. Practically everybody I interviewed said ‘I joined the military because of the GI Bill, because I couldn’t pay for college and I knew this would be a way to do that.’… That sort of educated me about the importance of these programs. You know, it’s one thing to be in Congress reading papers and passing papers back and forth and voting, but it’s another thing to see the actual impact in real people’s lives” External link

Angus King said : “The threat of PFAS is not a hypothetical – Maine farmers are already losing crops, land, and livestock to contaminants, and if we don’t act quick, the crisis’ human health risks will escalate,” “The Relief for Farmers Hit with PFAS Act is a crucial step to assist farmers combatting the spread of PFAS and provide already-impacted farms with needed relief. The monitoring, testing, and remediation provisions in the bill will help the state study PFAS threats, clean up contaminated areas, and prevent further communities from facing the economic and health devastation of these contaminants. I hope this bipartisan, bicameral legislation can get broad support across Congress and give Maine farmers the help they deserve” External link

Angus King said ( about Mark Twain ) : “We are literally recording history that can inform our future. One of my favorite sayings from Mark Twain, everybody has one, is history doesn’t always repeat itself, but it usually rhymes. That means we all have something to learn from history,” “For example, the first interview I did was with a fellow named Carmine Pecorelli. Carmine served in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam – he served in the Navy, the Air Force, and the Army all in one career. But sadly, a few months ago, we lost him. Without the [Veterans History Project] his history and stories would have been lost” External link

Angus King said : “Marriage is one of life’s great gifts; it brings companionship, love, and support. Along with the obvious personal and emotional benefits of partnership, marriage is also supposed to present financial benefits and the ability to claim joint deductions that can result in significant tax savings,” “All married couples who qualify for these tax refunds deserve them, but for too many years, legally wedded same-sex couples in Maine and across the nation were not eligible. The Refund Equality Act would right this wrong and allow same-sex couples to receive the tax refunds that were withheld before they received federal recognition of their marriages. This bill is purely about fairness, giving people what they are owed, and recognizing the many promises of marriage” External link

Angus King said ( about Affordable Care Act ) : “The Inflation Reduction Act is a historic effort to lower healthcare and energy costs, fight climate change, and reduce the deficit,” “Included in the package are commonsense provisions that will save Maine people thousands of dollars a year on their energy bills, and reduce drug costs for seniors by capping Medicare recipients’ out-of-pocket drug costs and allowing Medicare to finally negotiate the price it pays for pharmaceuticals. The law also includes my provisions to reduce the deficit by trillions by fully funding the IRS and making sure massive corporations are paying their fair share. It was great to be joined by four experts on Inside Maine this month who helped preview the tangible benefits this bill will have for Maine people. I look forward to keeping in touch with them to hear their continued work on the issues facing Maine” External link

Angus King asked ( about Мэри Миллер ) : “Here’s my concern: terrorists with nuclear weapons. Deterrence depends upon the other side having a fear of death and a fear of destruction and a fear of the loss of their country and their infrastructure and their capital city. What about people who, A, don’t care about dying and B, have no capital city?” “We need another theory or an adjunct to the theory of deterrence to deal with the threat of terrorists with nuclear weapons. We’ve got countries, Iran and North Korea, probably the most likely with building with fissile material. Iran’s a week or two away from enough fiscal material. How do we deal with this threat? Mr. Miller, your thoughts? It seems to me this is a whole new category that, frankly, I don’t think we’re addressing” External link

Angus King said : “It seems to me, Mr. Miller, that hypersonics changes the strategic balance altogether. And you suggested, I think it was you that was talking about the danger, you can have a nuclear weapon essentially dwelling in low Earth orbit over Washington,” “If the President, the Vice President and the leadership of Congress is gone, we’re decapitated. There’s no one to make the decision to launch, which undermines the deterrence because of the lack of a second strike, as you outlined. Should we have the Vice President live somewhere else in the country? Should we disperse our leadership in some way? Because I think you raise a very important point. Without the threat of a second strike, of a retaliatory strike, deterrence doesn’t work” External link

With Ambassador Fick coordinating our global cyberdiplomacy, America will be better positioned to respond to growing threats, inform the development of global rules of engagement, and create desperately needed international norms for cyber,” “Our country has lagged behind in shaping policies beyond our shores to defend us in this war without borders.

This bipartisan bill will help the Department of Defense stay on the cutting edge of rapidly-evolving capabilities, keep our warfighters well equipped, and make sure our nation is ready to address any potential threat.

Therefore, we must rise with the occasion. As our cases new, we also must think anew and act anew.’ And then here’s the key line, ‘we must disenthrall ourselves,’ Lincoln said, ‘and then we shall save our country.’ We must disenthrall ourselves and save our country. It means think in new and different ways, let go of the way you thought about these kinds of issues in the past.

It’s imperative the United States has the necessary weapons stockpiles to continue supporting Ukraine, while also ensuring our country is fully equipped to address the global threat landscape we face,” “The bipartisan Securing American ARMS Act would give the Department of Defense the rapid procurement tools they need to both maintain our own defenses and aid allies like Ukraine. It’s a commonsense step to improve our national security, support the industrial base, and further stymie Putin’s empire-building ambitions.

In partnership with the federal government and non-profits like the Gulf of Maine Research Institute, we can adapt in order to grow our economy, strengthen our communities, and address the threats of climate change,” “These two new Congressionally-Directed Spending investments will provide GMRI the tools it needs to expand their important climate efforts and help the seafood industry adapt to these rapidly shifting dynamics. This will mean a brighter future for Maine’s coast and all the people who rely on it. Today’s visit was a powerful reminder of how Congressionally-Directed Spending is being responsive to our state’s needs and the hard work that is being done to secure a better Maine.

If we can crack cost efficient, effective energy storage we can move to an entirely fossil free energy grid because of wind and solar we know can supply the power. But the question is what happens when the wind doesn’t blow and it’s not sunny,” “So I hope storage and storage is part of the bill that we’ll be discussing next week.

Angus King said ( about Vladimir Putin ) : “Vladimir Putin’s deadly invasion has created unspeakable tragedy and unshakeable unity – and during this CODEL, we saw both on display,” “This unprovoked Russian war has displaced millions of Ukrainians – primarily women, children, the elderly, and other vulnerable people who want nothing more than to peacefully return to their homes and normal lives. This immense suffering is unimaginable – and wholly unnecessary. That is why a broad international coalition has stepped up to provide humanitarian aid, and NATO and other U.S. allies remain unified as we deliver vital military support to the Ukrainian people. These large-scale efforts are helping mitigate the pain of the Ukrainian people, and creating severe complications for the Russian invaders. A first-hand look at the situation makes it clear that our efforts are making a real impact – but also underscores that we must prioritize delivering on the aid and weaponry they need to stand strong against Russia’s aggression” External link

Angus King said : “Vladimir Putin’s heinous attack on a sovereign nation has ended decades of peace among the nations of Europe and created immense suffering across Ukraine and Russia,” “His thinly veiled attempt to reconstitute the Soviet Union is destroying two counties by single-handedly devastating the Russian economy and inflicting needless brutality on the Ukrainian people. As Putin’s grand ambitions stall, it’s clear he is ramping up his illegal assault, attacking innocent civilians, and willfully committing atrocities against Ukraine’s most vulnerable. The United States and our partners across the free world stand with the Ukrainian people and their brave leaders against these atrocities. This bipartisan resolution reaffirmed that commitment; together, we will continue to ensure that Russia feels the harsh consequences of Putin’s unprovoked invasion” External link

Angus King said : “It should go without saying – no one should have to choose between getting an education or keeping a roof above their head,” “Our youth and veterans pursuing higher education are there to improve their lives and invest in their future and it’s completely unfair for them to lose federal housing support because they are investing their time and energy in seeking a college degree. The Housing for Homeless Students Act is a necessary, commonsense, and bipartisan step to right this wrong and ensure America’s youth and veterans have equal opportunities to grow, learn, and succeed” External link

Today’s ribbon cutting is a testament to the hard work of the city and to the value of the partnerships they’ve formed with Colby College and the MaineDOT.

Angus King said : “The first interview I did for our Veterans History Project in Maine was with a fellow named Carmine Pecorelli,” “Carmine enlisted at 17 in the Navy and World War Two. He then came back into service in the Air Force in Korea and came back into service in the Army in Vietnam. Three wars, three different services. We just lost him a few months ago – so that’s a piece of history that would have been lost but is preserved because of this project” External link

Angus King said : “This has been a learning experience for me. I’m on the Armed Services and the Intelligence Committee, so I spend a great deal of time with the policies that our veterans, when they were in active duty, were executing,” “It’s been very educational for me. One of the things, for example, that I’ve noticed is the incredible importance and value of the GI Bill. Practically everybody I interviewed said ‘I joined the military because of the GI Bill, because I couldn’t pay for college and I knew this would be a way to do that.’… That sort of educated me about the importance of these programs. You know, it’s one thing to be in Congress reading papers and passing papers back and forth and voting, but it’s another thing to see the actual impact in real people’s lives” External link

Angus King said : “The threat of PFAS is not a hypothetical – Maine farmers are already losing crops, land, and livestock to contaminants, and if we don’t act quick, the crisis’ human health risks will escalate,” “The Relief for Farmers Hit with PFAS Act is a crucial step to assist farmers combatting the spread of PFAS and provide already-impacted farms with needed relief. The monitoring, testing, and remediation provisions in the bill will help the state study PFAS threats, clean up contaminated areas, and prevent further communities from facing the economic and health devastation of these contaminants. I hope this bipartisan, bicameral legislation can get broad support across Congress and give Maine farmers the help they deserve” External link

Angus King said ( about Mark Twain ) : “We are literally recording history that can inform our future. One of my favorite sayings from Mark Twain, everybody has one, is history doesn’t always repeat itself, but it usually rhymes. That means we all have something to learn from history,” “For example, the first interview I did was with a fellow named Carmine Pecorelli. Carmine served in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam – he served in the Navy, the Air Force, and the Army all in one career. But sadly, a few months ago, we lost him. Without the [Veterans History Project] his history and stories would have been lost” External link

Angus King said : “Marriage is one of life’s great gifts; it brings companionship, love, and support. Along with the obvious personal and emotional benefits of partnership, marriage is also supposed to present financial benefits and the ability to claim joint deductions that can result in significant tax savings,” “All married couples who qualify for these tax refunds deserve them, but for too many years, legally wedded same-sex couples in Maine and across the nation were not eligible. The Refund Equality Act would right this wrong and allow same-sex couples to receive the tax refunds that were withheld before they received federal recognition of their marriages. This bill is purely about fairness, giving people what they are owed, and recognizing the many promises of marriage” External link

Angus King said ( about Affordable Care Act ) : “The Inflation Reduction Act is a historic effort to lower healthcare and energy costs, fight climate change, and reduce the deficit,” “Included in the package are commonsense provisions that will save Maine people thousands of dollars a year on their energy bills, and reduce drug costs for seniors by capping Medicare recipients’ out-of-pocket drug costs and allowing Medicare to finally negotiate the price it pays for pharmaceuticals. The law also includes my provisions to reduce the deficit by trillions by fully funding the IRS and making sure massive corporations are paying their fair share. It was great to be joined by four experts on Inside Maine this month who helped preview the tangible benefits this bill will have for Maine people. I look forward to keeping in touch with them to hear their continued work on the issues facing Maine” External link

Angus King asked ( about Мэри Миллер ) : “Here’s my concern: terrorists with nuclear weapons. Deterrence depends upon the other side having a fear of death and a fear of destruction and a fear of the loss of their country and their infrastructure and their capital city. What about people who, A, don’t care about dying and B, have no capital city?” “We need another theory or an adjunct to the theory of deterrence to deal with the threat of terrorists with nuclear weapons. We’ve got countries, Iran and North Korea, probably the most likely with building with fissile material. Iran’s a week or two away from enough fiscal material. How do we deal with this threat? Mr. Miller, your thoughts? It seems to me this is a whole new category that, frankly, I don’t think we’re addressing” External link

Angus King said : “It seems to me, Mr. Miller, that hypersonics changes the strategic balance altogether. And you suggested, I think it was you that was talking about the danger, you can have a nuclear weapon essentially dwelling in low Earth orbit over Washington,” “If the President, the Vice President and the leadership of Congress is gone, we’re decapitated. There’s no one to make the decision to launch, which undermines the deterrence because of the lack of a second strike, as you outlined. Should we have the Vice President live somewhere else in the country? Should we disperse our leadership in some way? Because I think you raise a very important point. Without the threat of a second strike, of a retaliatory strike, deterrence doesn’t work” External link

With Ambassador Fick coordinating our global cyberdiplomacy, America will be better positioned to respond to growing threats, inform the development of global rules of engagement, and create desperately needed international norms for cyber,” “Our country has lagged behind in shaping policies beyond our shores to defend us in this war without borders.

This bipartisan bill will help the Department of Defense stay on the cutting edge of rapidly-evolving capabilities, keep our warfighters well equipped, and make sure our nation is ready to address any potential threat.

Angus King concluded ( about Abraham Lincoln ) : “Lincoln said ‘the dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty. Therefore, we must rise with the occasion. As our cases new, we also must think anew and act anew.’ And then here’s the key line, ‘we must disenthrall ourselves,’ Lincoln said, ‘and then we shall save our country.’ We must disenthrall ourselves and save our country. It means think in new and different ways, let go of the way you thought about these kinds of issues in the past.

It’s imperative the United States has the necessary weapons stockpiles to continue supporting Ukraine, while also ensuring our country is fully equipped to address the global threat landscape we face,” “The bipartisan Securing American ARMS Act would give the Department of Defense the rapid procurement tools they need to both maintain our own defenses and aid allies like Ukraine. It’s a commonsense step to improve our national security, support the industrial base, and further stymie Putin’s empire-building ambitions. I’m glad the bill has already received broad, bipartisan support, and hope we can get it passed quickly” External link

In partnership with the federal government and non-profits like the Gulf of Maine Research Institute, we can adapt in order to grow our economy, strengthen our communities, and address the threats of climate change,” “These two new Congressionally-Directed Spending investments will provide GMRI the tools it needs to expand their important climate efforts and help the seafood industry adapt to these rapidly shifting dynamics. This will mean a brighter future for Maine’s coast and all the people who rely on it. Today’s visit was a powerful reminder of how Congressionally-Directed Spending is being responsive to our state’s needs and the hard work that is being done to secure a better Maine.

Angus King said : “One of my favorite sayings of Mark Twain is that history doesn’t always repeat itself but it usually rhymes. And in this case I’m thinking about to the predecessor in my Senate seat Edmund Muskie of Maine who wrote the Clean Water Act. The Clean Water Act passed in 1970 after immense effort by Senator Muskie, unanimously,” “It seems to me that what we are talking about today is a solvable problem. We need these minerals, we need to cut off our dependency on other countries that are unreliable or even hostile – to me that is just common sense. We also need to protect our watersheds and our rivers and our natural resources in our communities. This is an engineering problem” External link

Gary’s service both in and out of the Armed Services has made a real impact on our state and nation.

Secretary Cohen’s lifetime of public service and extensive foreign policy credentials make him an important voice on this subject, and I am deeply grateful that he joined Inside Maine to share his knowledge and perspective on the best ways we can continue to support the Ukrainian people” External link

Angus King said : “Last year, Congress made overdue, transformative broadband investments with the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill and American Rescue Plan that will help expand connectivity to millions across the country. This progress is welcome, but there is still some fine-tuning that is needed,” “The Universal Service Fund has been a key tool in the effort to expand these 21st century connections, and the opportunities that come along with them, delivering hundreds of millions of dollars in connectivity funding to Maine – but the funding mechanism has not kept up with the times, placing an undue burden on Maine seniors and rural residents. This legislation would help the USF adapt with new technologies, creating a level playing field for all consumers and ensuring that this program can support broadband investments in the years ahead” External link

Angus King said ( about Vladimir Putin ) : “Vladimir Putin’s deadly invasion has created unspeakable tragedy and unshakeable unity – and during this CODEL, we saw both on display,” “This unprovoked Russian war has displaced millions of Ukrainians – primarily women, children, the elderly, and other vulnerable people who want nothing more than to peacefully return to their homes and normal lives. This immense suffering is unimaginable – and wholly unnecessary. That is why a broad international coalition has stepped up to provide humanitarian aid, and NATO and other U.S. allies remain unified as we deliver vital military support to the Ukrainian people. These large-scale efforts are helping mitigate the pain of the Ukrainian people, and creating severe complications for the Russian invaders. A first-hand look at the situation makes it clear that our efforts are making a real impact – but also underscores that we must prioritize delivering on the aid and weaponry they need to stand strong against Russia’s aggression” External link

Angus King said : “Vladimir Putin’s heinous attack on a sovereign nation has ended decades of peace among the nations of Europe and created immense suffering across Ukraine and Russia,” “His thinly veiled attempt to reconstitute the Soviet Union is destroying two counties by single-handedly devastating the Russian economy and inflicting needless brutality on the Ukrainian people. As Putin’s grand ambitions stall, it’s clear he is ramping up his illegal assault, attacking innocent civilians, and willfully committing atrocities against Ukraine’s most vulnerable. The United States and our partners across the free world stand with the Ukrainian people and their brave leaders against these atrocities. This bipartisan resolution reaffirmed that commitment; together, we will continue to ensure that Russia feels the harsh consequences of Putin’s unprovoked invasion” External link
