  • Bob Dole to receive Congressional Gold Medal Wednesday afternoon

Bob Dole was honored at the US Capitol today, and he sent the National Football League a message.

Numerous speakers focused on the work Dole did both as a senator and after for fellow military veterans and those with disabilities.

Dole said he thanks his colleagues "for without them, nothing would have been accomplished" and he said he thanks his staff: "I've always said that you're not better than your staff and I thank them for all they've done for me over the years".

Additionally, Dole led the campaign that raised funds for the National World War II Memorial in Washington.

Neymar tears Dijon apart with four goals and two assists
Neymar recorded another individual landmark as Paris Saint-Germain thumped desperate Dijon 8-0 in Ligue 1 on Wednesday. Just to rub salt into the wound, Neymar buried a penalty past Reynet in the 83rd minute.

On Wednesday, the 1996 GOP presidential nominee and decorated war hero drew merited praise from both parties, with Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer deeming Dole "the gold standard" for politicians and House Speaker Paul Ryan noting that "he is as honorable as they come".

"In hearing (Dole's) story they will truly learn what it means to be a great American".

As Senate Minority and later Majority Leader for nine years, Dole earned respect from liberals and conservatives as a dealmaker and voice of moderation.

"Through this venerable tradition, the occasional commissioning of individually struck gold medals in its name, Congress has expressed public gratitude on behalf of the nation for distinguished contributions for more than two centuries", according to the Congressional Research Service. "And the exits, which are clearly marked, are for you to walk out of as I stand this ground without compromise".

The cryptocurrency crash is here
Don't blindly invest in something without doing proper and thorough research, and never invest what you can't afford to lose. Other currencies like Ripple , Ethereum , BitcoinCash and Litecoin have experienced steep falls.

Dole was the main previous Republican chosen one to help Trump's bid in the 2016 decision.

The president says Dole "has never stopped fighting" for Kansas, military veterans and the disabled. But Trump and the Republican-led Congress are now mired in a pitched budget battle that could end in a government shutdown at the end of the week if not resolved. Instead, Dole became the Financial Committee chairman and then became Senate Majority Leader in 1985. "Thank you for your service". "Senator Dole has spent his life serving the state of Kansas and our country - helping veterans and combatting child hunger and poverty". Sway Dole is granted the Congressional Gold Medal, the most elevated regular citizen respect gave by Congress.

By then, he had begun collecting more of the nation's highest honors.

The Congressional Gold Medal is the highest civilian honor given by the United States Congress.
