Congressman salutes Bill of Rights Day

Thursday, December 15, 2011

U.S. Rep Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., spoke to the House today, saluting the Bill of Rights on its 220th anniversary.  The congressman urges Americans to reflect on the freedoms they enjoy.

“You only need to look across the globe to the Arab Spring and elsewhere to see millions of people protesting and risking their lives just to have a taste of the freedoms we take for granted,” Cohen said. “And you realize how fortunate we are.”
