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, May 5, 2017
While in Washington this week, I voted against legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act and voted for an Omnibus appropriations package to fund the government through fiscal year (FY) 2017. I also attended a hearing on airline customer service, participated in a House Foreign Affairs Committee markup, and held a number of meetings. Affordable Care Act Repeal Funding the Government Hearings Markup Featured Legislation Meetings Affordable Care Act Repeal On Thursday afternoon, I voted against H.R. 1628, the American Health Care Act (AHCA), the Republican plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which would strip access to affordable health care from middle class and low-income families. This new healthcare legislation was rushed to the House floor for a vote without a nonpartisan analysis from the Congressional Budget Office so we do not know the true costs of the repeal. It also harms those who need coverage the most by allowing states to charge higher premiums for pre-
Congressman Sires Participates in Transportation Committee Hearing on U.S. Airline Customer Service
(Washington, D.C.) – Today, Congressman Sires participated in a House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure hearing that examined U.S. airline customer service policies in light of recent incidents on major U.S. air carriers. After last month’s highly publicized incident on United Airlines in which a passenger was forcibly removed from the aircraft, the Committee called for a hearing to examine how major U.S. airlines handle customer service issues.  At the hearing, Rep. Sires questioned top executives from four major airlines and a consumer advocate on how pressing issues in the industry impact customers.  “I am deeply concerned by recent trends in the U.S. airline industry with regards to customer service.  Passengers are losing trust in U.S. airlines as they encounter higher fares, unreliable scheduling, and unacceptable customer treatment.  In the past month alone, there have been numerous incidents that raise important questions about staff training and polici
Congressman Sires Votes for Omnibus Appropriations Bill
(Washington, D.C.)-  Today, Congressman Sires voted to adopt the fiscal year (FY) 2017 Omnibus Appropriations bill.  This measure funds the government through the end of FY 2017 and passed in the House of Representatives by a vote of 309 - 118. “This funding measure eliminates the risk of another destabilizing government shutdown and ensures that American families will continue to have access to critical federal services,” stated Congressman Sires.  The bill includes $34.1 billion in funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH), an increase of $2 billion, which will be used to support breakthrough research programs to improve our understanding and treatment methods of various diseases.  It also allocates $22.5 billion for the Federal Pell Grant program which is a critical resource for low-income students who otherwise might not be able to pursue higher education due to financial constraints.  In addition, it funds Community Development Block Grants at $3 billion a
Congressman Sires’ Statement on Vote to Repeal the Affordable Care Act
(Washington, D.C.) – Congressman Sires issued the following statement regarding House Republicans’ vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act:  “Once again, House Republicans’ have introduced misguided and unpopular legislation that would repeal the Affordable Care Act and leave middle class and low-income families without access to affordable health care.  This plan strips away the most popular protections under the Affordable Care Act, defunds Planned Parenthood, destroys Medicaid, and harms those who need coverage the most.  This legislation would leave those in need of health care without access to affordable coverage by allowing states to charge higher premiums for pre-existing conditions; opt of out providing coverage for essential health benefits like maternity care, hospital visits, and mental health services; and potentially charge seniors significantly higher premiums.  House Republicans have pushed this misguided plan through without an updated Congressional Budget
