WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) issued the following statement in honor of Israel Independence Day:
"I join Israel in celebrating the 64th anniversary of its independence and in remembering the many men and women who have lost their lives in defense of their land. The Jewish state has been a shining symbol of democratic courage in the Middle East for more than six decades, and serves as an example of democratic potential abroad. Without question, Israel remains the United States' strongest ally and friend in the region, and I will continue to stand with Israel in the coming years."
Senator Pat Toomey was elected to the U.S. Senate from Pennsylvania on a platform of limited government, economic and job growth, and restoring fiscal responsibility.
Since joining the Senate in 2011, he has distinguished himself as a leader on economic, financial services and budgetary issues, striving to restore fiscal discipline to Washington and economic opportunity for all Americans. Among other things, Sen. Toomey introduced a 10-year balanced budget proposal that received more votes in the Senate than any other budget plan in 2011, and he has successfully helped cut federal red tape for local communities and job creators in Pennsylvania through his Had Enough? constituent services program.
