Proposed DFL redistricting map irks McCollum

The Minnesota DFL Party submitted a congressional redistricting plan Friday that would place Democratic Rep. Betty McCollum into a district with GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann. Bachmann is currently running for the GOP presidential nomination, but hasn't ruled out another run for Congress. The plan has prompted McCollum's chief of staff to send an e-mail criticizing the proposal. "The DFL Chair and his high-paid lawyers have proposed a congressional map to the redistricting panel that is hyper-partisan and bizarre," McCollum's chief of staff Bill Harper said in the email. "Their plan ignores the ...

McCollum blames Tea Party for nation's political gridlock

Mary Leary, a small business owner from Mendota Heights, isn't much concerned with the volatility currently gripping Wall Street. The partisanship and structural gridlock in national American politics are what's on her mind.She was one of more than 100 who gathered in St. Paul Tuesday night for Congresswoman Betty McCollum's town hall meeting. "It's more of the gridlock that has become really, really bad," Leary said as she waited to see McCollum, a politician she admires. "It's lethal." Constituents worried about rollercoaster stock markets, near government default, a potentially broken ...

McCollum Statement on CBO Score of House Republicans' Health Care Bill
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) released the following statement after the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimated that House Republicans’ health care bill will cause 24 million more Americans to be uninsured by 2026 and lead insurance premiums to increase: “Today’s report confirms that Congressional Republicans and President Trump’s health care bill is a mean-spirited and callous prescription for disaster that hurts working families, seniors, and the most vulnerable Americans. “This Republican bill will shred the safety net that tens of millions of families rely on when a loved one is sick. It will cause insurance premiums to increase, hurting the economic security of millions of American families. It will cut nearly $900 billion from Medicaid, slashing the health care that low-income Americans, seniors, and people with disabilities rely on. And it will cause many women to lose access to comprehensive health care. “I don’t understand what motiv
McCollum Opposes Bill That Releases Asbestos Victims' Personal Information
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) spoke on the House Floor today against H.R. 985, the so-called Furthering Asbestos Claim Transparency (FACT) Act, a bill that makes it harder for asbestos victims to hold corporate wrongdoers accountable and that irretrievably releases the personal information of asbestos victims on the Internet. Congresswoman McCollum delivered the following remarks against H.R. 985: Asbestos is a deadly poison that can cause lung cancer and mesothelioma. Once detected, these patients survive only, on average, for only eight to fourteen months. This was true for Congressman Bruce Vento, who proudly served the families of the Fourth District of Minnesota for more than twenty-three years in this House. Bruce was a friend, and he died from mesothelioma eight and a half months after he was diagnosed. Congress has a responsibility to find real solutions to support mesothelioma victims and their families. But H.R. 985 would not support the families. In fact, it ex
McCollum Statement on House Republicans’ Affordable Care Act Repeal Bill
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) released the following statement after House Republicans announced their bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act: "It is now obvious why House Republicans waited until the last minute to reveal their bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act: Their bill takes us backwards and gives more control over our health care to big drug and insurance companies. “This Republican bill jeopardizes care for tens of millions of children, families, seniors, and people with disabilities. It will lead to higher costs for working families across America and cut billions of dollars in funding for Minnesota and other states. "To protect our care, we must stand together as Americans and reject this backwards Republican proposal. As a nation, we must work together to improve the Affordable Care Act and ensure that every American has access to affordable, quality care."
McCollum Updates Fourth District on House Republicans' Disastrous Health Care Bill
Congresswoman Betty McCollum sent the following newsletter to Fourth District citizens on Friday, March 10 about House Republicans' disastrous health care bill and her work to protect health care for families in Minnesota and throughout the United States: Dear Neighbor: The Republican majority in the U.S. House of Representatives this week unveiled a bill to replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Instead of considering this major legislation under a process that is open and transparent for the American people, House Republicans are trying to quickly jam this controversial bill through Congress. Despite neither holding public hearings nor giving the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) enough time to determine the bill's cost or its consequences for the American people, Republicans have already passed this legislation through two House committees. Even without a complete analysis, we know that this Republican “repeal and replace” bill is devastating for millions of childre
