The War In Iraq

In October 2002, Murray was one of 21 Democrats in the Senate to vote against the War Authoritization for invading Iraq. Quoted from her Senate speech:

Mr. President, if we do take action in Iraq, there is no doubt that our armed forces will prevail. We will win a war with Iraq decisively, and, God willing, we will win it quickly. But what happens after the war? That will have as big an impact on our future peace and security. Will we be obligated to rebuild Iraq? If so, how? Our economy is reeling, our budget is in deficit, and we have no estimate of the cost of rebuilding. And with whom? As New York Times columnist Tom Friedman points out, there's a retail store mentality that suggests to some — if "you break it, you buy it."

Controversial remarks about bin Laden

In December 2002, while speaking to students at Columbia River High School in Vancouver, Murray made a number of comments she intended to provoke thought, but ended up creating controversy and even were used in a campaign ad by her opponent in 2004.[9] These comments linked Osama bin Laden's popularity around the world to his building of infrastructure in Muslim countries and the lack of popularity for the U.S. due to it not helping to build infrastructure.[10] The main entrance of Columbia River High School Columbia River High School is a public high school in Vancouver, Washington, United States. ... For other uses, see Vancouver (disambiguation). ...


Republican pundits and the conservative media were quick to criticize Murray for saying bin Laden was a humanitarian and that she was grossly uninformed as to the nature of the U.S.'s lack of popularity in Muslim countries.[11] Several local newspapers were quick to come to Murray's defense by saying that even though her comments were over-simplistic and poorly constructed, bin Laden has spent much of his personal fortune to gain influence over local leaders and promote his ideology by making investments, including infrastructure improvement projects, in those countries.[12]


Recent Senate initiatives

In May 2006, Murray, along with 38 of 44 Senate Democrats, voted in favor of the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2006 (S. 2611).[13] The bill includes provisions to improve border security, increases fines and other punishments for employers of illegal immigrants, creation of a guest worker program (which includes an almost doubling of the number of H1-B visas,[14] and creates a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants already in the country.[15] The bill, with support from GOP leadership, passed 62-36. For the 2007 act, see Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2007. ...

NPR : Bill Frist, Patty Murray, National Press Club (417 words)
Patty Murray is also working on her second term in the Senate after running a watershed 1992 campaign at the center of the "Year of the Woman" in U.S. politics.
Murray's campaign drew national attention as she recounted being belittled in 1980 by a Washington state legislator as "just a mom in tennis shoes" when she went to Olympia seeking to restore cuts in state funding for parent-child education programs.
A decade later, Murray was elected to the Senate, where she is chairman of the Transportation Appropriations Subcommittee and serves on the Budget Committee.
