Congresswoman Barbara Lee Opposes Debt Ceiling Deal


Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA) released the following statement in opposition to the debt ceiling deal released on Sunday night: “Of course, I don’t want to see our nation default, but after having reviewed this deal in detail, for a number of reasons, I am simply unable to support it. “First, it totally fails to address the urgent and most pressing crisis in the country: the lack of jobs and economic growth. At a time when investments are needed to jump start our economy and put people back to work, I believe this deal and its cuts-only approach is the wrong approach. ...


Lee Introd. Bill to Repeal the Authoriz. to Use Milit. Force


Congresswoman Barbara Lee, like Jeanette Rankin before her, bravely stood alone in Congress against a vote for war, the vote in 2001 for the so-called Authorization to Use Military Force, a Constitutionally dubious passing of the war decision buck to President Bush and his successors. A majority of Americans now believes that the Afghanistan War that followed that authorization never should have been begun and should, in fact, be ended.

Congresswoman Lee Sends Letter to President Obama Calling for Executive Action on Poverty
Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA13), chair of the Democratic Whip Task Force on Poverty, Income Inequality, Opportunity, and 29 other Members of Congress sent a letter to President Obama applauding the administration’s efforts to address economic inequality and providing the administration with “a series of strategic agency directives, in the absence of coordinated legislative action by Congress to address poverty in America.” “House Republicans continue to block legislative efforts to create good-paying jobs while pursuing draconian cuts to the social safety net. The President can play a key role in helping businesses create jobs that lift people out of poverty and in addressing the root causes of persistent poverty in our country,” said Congresswoman Barbara Lee. “The President has shown clear leadership in tackling issues that House Republicans continue to block. My colleagues and I stand ready to join the President is pursuing proven solution
