Rep. Scalise receives standing ovation upon return to the Capitol

  • Speaker Ryan: "Our prayers have been answered... The chair wishes to mark the return to the chamber of our dear friend and colleague from Louisiana, Mr. Steve Scalise."
  • "All I remember are the thousands of acts of kindness and love and warmth that came out of this," said Scalise. I am definitely a living example that miracles really do happen."
  • "It's so important that as we have those political battles, we don't make them personal."
  • Other world leaders "cared about my well-being, but more than that, they saw this as an attack on all of us."
  • Now it's back to work, "people all around the world that believe in freedom are counting on us."
