Speech in Response to Opponent's Political Attacks


An excerpt from a Tower speech in which he addresses an unnamed political opponent, accusing this opponent of relying on ad hominem attacks, particularly in regard to Tower's voting against the continued funding of the Senate Select Committee on Nutrition and Human Needs. Tower responds to the attacks by describing the program as fiscally irresponsible. The speech is undated but refers to events of 1968 and 1969 as having occurred in the near past.
