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 ...

Sires Objects to Reduction in Postal Services

Congressman Sires joined his colleagues in the House of Representatives in sending a letter to United States Postal Service (USPS) Post Master General Patrick Donahue. The letter, to object to the proposal to slow first-class service and close processing centers, was lead by Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN). “The Post Office plays a vital role in our community, providing affordable and reliable service that many citizens and businesses depend on” said Congressman Sires. “Reducing service will disproportionately affect millions of Americans and cut thousands of jobs.” On ...

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, July 5, 2017
While in Washington last week, the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee marked up the 21st Century AIRR Act, I questioned UN Ambassador Nikki Haley at a Foreign Affairs Committee Meeting, and held a number of meetings. Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Markup Foreign Affairs Committee Hearing Featured Legislation Meetings Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Markup On Tuesday, the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee met to markup H.R. 2997, the 21st Century Aviation, Innovation, Reform and Reauthorization (AIRR) Act, which addresses some of the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) most pressing challenges in safety and consumer protections. Unfortunately, this bill also subjects the security of our airspace to the corporate world’s race-to-the-bottom cost-cutting culture by turning over our nation’s air traffic control operations and infrastructure to private corporations. After a nine hour markup, I voted against the 21st Century AIRR Act,
Washington Review, June 23, 2017
This week in Washington,  the Senate released their proposal to replace the Affordable Care Act, I attended a Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee hearing on passenger rail service, and held a number of meetings. Health Care Update Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee Hearing Featured Legislation Meetings Senate Health Care Proposal Thursday’s release of the Senate Republicans’ proposal to replace the Affordable Care Act continues the attack on middle-class Americans. Like the House plan, the Senate proposal eliminates Medicaid expansion that has provided 14 million more Americans with access to health care in addition to capping Medicaid payments that states rely on to cover the health costs of children and seniors. Older Americans will also be charged an “age tax” that is up to 5 times more than younger individuals. The Affordable Care Act is not perfect, but targeting the health care of millions of hard-working Americans is not the answer and I will

This week in Washington, I discussed microfinance and the importance of international diplomacy at a Foreign Affairs Hearing and at a Western Hemisphere Subcommittee hearing, spoke with Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary John Kelly about President Trump’s immigration reforms, voted on the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), and held a number of meetings. Foreign Affairs Committee Hearing Western Hemisphere Subcommittee Hearing DHS Secretary Kelly National Defense Authorization Act Meetings Foreign Affairs Committee Hearing On Wednesday, experts testified before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on the importance of providing more opportunities to empower women across the globe. I asked the witnesses how Congress can work with global partners, particularly in the Western Hemisphere, to ensure that women have greater inclusion and participation opportunities in the global economy. It is important that the United States support and encourage the continued e
Congressman Sires’ Statement on the Devastating Impact of the Senate Health Care Bill
(Washington, D.C.)- Congressman Sires released the following statement of opposition on the Senate GOP’s plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act: “After working so hard to hide their plan from the American people, Senate Republicans finally released their version of Trumpcare and it is just as heartless as the one House Republicans rushed through the chamber last month.  Like the House plan, the Senate GOP’s plan means higher health care costs, millions of hard-working Americans losing health coverage, key protections stripped, and a crushing age tax on seniors- all while providing a massive tax cut for the rich. Specifically, like the House plan, the Senate proposal would eliminate the expansion of Medicaid that has provided 14 million more Americans access to health care.  But the Senate Republicans didn’t stop there; the plan also cuts future federal funding for Medicaid by capping Medicaid payments to states that rely on the federal funding to cover health co
