How to use purse in a sentence?

  1. Piu Eatwell:

    I’m 99 percent confident on the basis of the evidence I see, there was definitely a cover-up. Even as I was going through the documents, pages were just missing and removed. And they’re almost always connected somehow to Leslie Dillon or Mark Hansen. There are very serious questions about Leslie Dillon that can’t be answered… Her shoes and purse were found dumped in the trash can shortly after the murder by a local cafe owner. And that’s actually two blocks from where Leslie Dillon lived… The park where she was found is one he knew very well and in fact, used as a shortcut to get to where he lived.

  2. House Republican:

    Congress should stand up and use the power of the purse.

  3. Ted Cruz:

    Congress is obliged to use every constitutional check and balance we have to rein in President Obama's lawlessness, and that includes both our confirmation authority over nominees and the power of the purse.

  4. William Howard Taft:

    It is important, of course, that controversies be settled right, but there are many civil questions which arise between individuals in which it is not so important the controversy be settled one way or another as that it be settled. Of course a settlement of a controversy on a fundamentally wrong principle of law is greatly to be deplored, but there must of necessity be many rules governing the relations between members of the same society that are more important in that their establishment creates a known rule of action than that they proceed on one principle or another. Delay works always for the man with the longest purse.

  5. Eliot Engel:

    Fortunately, Congress -- not the President -- has the power of the purse, and my colleagues and I will not stand idly by as this Administration ignores congressional intent.
