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 ...

Congressman Sires’ Statement on CBO Score of Republican Healthcare Bill
(Washington, D.C.)- Congressman Sires released the following statement on the analysis of the Republican healthcare bill issued by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO): “Today, the CBO confirmed that the GOP plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act is a disaster for the American people.  As anticipated, the CBO reports that the Republican plan will result in reduced coverage for millions of American families.  Specifically, the CBO estimates that 14 million people will lose their health insurance by 2018 and 24 million people by 2026 under the Republican proposal.  In addition, the CBO reports that in 2018-2019 single policyholders in the nongroup market would see their average premiums be 15 percent to 20 percent higher than under current law. Republicans are now attempting to discredit the nonpartisan CBO, but the truth is Congress has always relied on CBO for nonbiased analysis on the impact of specific legislative proposals.  Republican leadership must get seriou
Congressman Sires’ Statement on Russia’s Efforts to Undermine U.S. and European Elections
(Washington, D.C)  – Today, Congressman Sires issued the following statement on Russia’s continued efforts to undermine democracy in the United States, Europe, and around the world: “Today the Foreign Affairs Committee held a hearing on Russia’s continued aggression towards our European allies and its efforts to undermine democracies all over the world. I spoke about how Russian interference in the U.S. and other elections should not be a partisan issue. Unfortunately, I am all too familiar with the depths a communist regime will go to in order to manipulate the public and repress those who seek to expose its injustices. Growing up in Cuba I witnessed the indoctrination efforts, and saw firsthand the lengths authoritarian regimes go to to exert influence. All of our panelists expressed zero doubt that the Russians interfered in our election. Now, I call on my colleagues to insist upon an independent investigation and special prosecutor to fully uncover the extent to Russia
Washington Review, March 13, 2017
After returning to Washington from an official trip to Honduras and Guatemala, I participated in a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing, weighed in on recent executive actions and legislation, testified before a House Appropriations Subcommittee, and held meetings. Honduras and Guatemala Foreign Affairs Healthcare Testimony Meetings Honduras and Guatemala From March 3rd through the 5th, I traveled on an official trip to Honduras and Guatemala with my colleague, Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), to meet with Heads of State and other government officials to discuss efforts to combat corruption and drug trafficking in the region.  I strongly believe that we must work with our neighbors in the region to address the violence, corruption, and instability that force people to flee their homes in fear.  By addressing these root issues through regional cooperation, we can increase stability so families don’t have to leave their communities to find safety.  We had the opportunity to
Congressman Sires’ Statement on House Republicans’ Misguided Plan to Repeal the Affordable Care Act
(Washington, D.C.) – Today, Congressman Sires issued the following statement regarding House Republicans’ plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act: “House Republicans’ plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act is grossly misguided and inadequate. Republican leaders claim that their overhaul will drive down healthcare costs; however, it is clear that their plan prioritizes the wealthiest Americans while leaving middle class and low-income families to foot the bill. This plan would also defund Planned Parenthood, which provides essential preventative care for women across the country. Furthermore, House Republicans released this overhaul without any Congressional Budget Office score in what can be perceived as a deliberate attempt to bury the true costs of the repeal. I am also deeply concerned with how this plan will impact the expansion of Medicaid in states like New Jersey. The Republican overhaul would destroy Medicaid as we know it, potentially hurting tens of milli
