Sen. Isakson responds to the president's remarks regarding a potential government shutdown over a continuing resolution to fund the government.
Today we remember the senseless tragedies of Sept. 11, 2001, and we commemorate the lives of those who were lost. We also honor the heroes of that day  -- the first responders who rushed into burning buildings and the airline passengers who perished in a Pennsylvania field in order to save the lives of strangers. We thank the brave men and women who sacrifice so much to keep us safe each day, and the families of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. May we never forget that terrible September day and always remember the tremendous patriotism that followed in the days after. May God Bless America.
