Congressman Sires Supports Creation of Job Corps Program

Congressman Sires cosponsored H.R. 2914, the Emergency Jobs to Restore the American Dream Act. This legislation was introduced by Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), and would create jobs through the establishment of job corps programs. “This legislation creates jobs by funding job corps programs,” said Congressman Sires. “While this concept may be simple, its impact would be tremendous, and nationally, over 2.2 million jobs could be created.” The Emergency Jobs to Restore the American Dream Act would create several job corps programs. Specifically, the School ...

Pay Roll Tax Cuts And Unemployment Benefits Extension

Mister Speaker with our economy still struggling and unemployment remaining unacceptably high, now is not the time to take more money out of the pockets of hard working Americans.The majority is opposing an extension of the Payroll Tax holiday enacted earlier this year that gave virtually all working Americans a much needed tax cut.The Payroll Tax holiday cut the Social Security payroll taxes of over 160 million workers.Economic uncertainty both here in the U-S and abroad, makes this a dangerous time to eliminate an important tax cut that is saving American families an average of $1,000 per ...

Washington Review, November 6, 2017
Last week in Washington, the Republicans introduced a tax plan, I questioned FEMA administrators on their disaster response efforts at a Transportation and Infrastructure Hearing, listened to the testimony of a North Korean defector at a Foreign Affairs Hearing, and held a number of meetings. Additionally, the House voted on legislation to strip funds from critical health programs. Republican Tax Plan Transportation and Infrastructure Hearing Foreign Affairs Hearing Meetings On the Floor Republican Tax Plan On Thursday, the Republicans released their tax plan which prioritizes the wealthy and corporations over working American families. Not only would this plan add $1.5 trillion to the national deficit over the next 10 years, it would also eliminate numerous tax deductions and provisions which middle class families rely on each year. Specifically, H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, would cap the local property tax at $10,000 and eliminate the deduction of state taxes. Additiona
Congressman Sires’ Statement on the Republican Tax Plan
(Washington, D.C.) – Today, Congressman Sires released the following statement regarding the Republican tax plan: “As I’ve said before, this Republican tax plan prioritizes the wealthy and corporations over working American families while adding $1.5 trillion to our national deficit over the next decade.  Tax reform should be a bipartisan effort to simplify the tax code in a way that is fair and stimulating for the economy, not a one-sided plan crafted behind closed doors. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act eliminates numerous deductions that millions of middle class families use every year to pay for cuts in the corporate tax rate, massive tax breaks for the wealthy and the delayed repeal of the estate tax.  Particularly devastating for New Jersey is the partial repeal of the state and local tax deduction which has been part of the tax code for over 100 years and is used by many New Jersey families.  The local property tax would be capped at $10,000 and the deduction of state inco
Opposing the Republican Tax Plan
Mr. Speaker, I rise today in strong opposition to the Republican tax plan.  As I have said many times before, this plan gives tax breaks for the wealthy and corporations over the needs of American families while adding a predicted $2.1 trillion to the national debt over the next decade. Particularly devastating for New Jersey is the partial elimination of the State and Local Tax deduction.  More than 25 percent of New Jerseyans would face a tax hike over the next decade due to this change.  Per person, New Jersey taxpayers paid $3,478 more in federal taxes in 2015 than they received from the government, more than any other state. Not only would the bill aggravate this disparity in New Jersey, it would also eliminate vital deductions that give relief to those burdened with high medical costs, student debt, and unexpected losses due to natural disasters.  I will not support a one-sided plan that harms New Jersey and those who are most in need of tax relief.  I yield back.
