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 Opposes House Republicans’ Tax Attacks on College Students and Their Families
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) today urged her colleagues to oppose House Republicans’ tax bill that makes higher education more expensive for students and working families in Minnesota and across the United States. According to their own estimates, House Republicans’ bill will increase the cost of higher education to American students and their families by at least $65 billion over the next 10 years.  “I hear every day from Minnesota families who are already struggling to pay the cost of college and job training. Unbelievably, my Republican colleagues now want to make it even harder to afford higher education,” Congresswoman McCollum said. “Minnesotans should be outraged by this terrible proposal, especially because the higher costs forced on students and families are being used to give tax cuts to big corporations and billionaires.” House Republicans’ bill ends the student loan interest deduction, adding to the costs that students face in paying their stu
McCollum Statement Opposing H.R. 3922, CHAMPION Act
Mr. Speaker, I rise in opposition to the Community Health and Medical Professionals Improve Our Nation (CHAMPION) Act of 2017 (H.R. 3922). While I support reauthorizing funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), the Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), and various other important public health programs, I oppose this bill because it cuts funding for public health, puts families at risk of losing their health insurance, and weakens Medicare. The health of children and expecting and new mothers is something that we can all agree on. In my home state of Minnesota, CHIP funding is essential for providing healthcare to125,000 low income children and 1,700 expecting and new mothers. Minnesota also depends on FQHC funding with over 190,000 people receiving care from one of the more than 70 community health centers in my state last year. Unfortunately, House Republicans have turned these bipartisan issues into an opportunity to divide us. The offsets included in t
McCollum Statement on Veterans Day
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) released the following statement in observance of Veterans Day: “On Veterans Day, we set aside time to honor the service of the courageous women and men who have served as soldiers, sailors, Airmen, Marines, Coast Guardsmen and in the Merchant Marine. At the same time, we reflect on the tremendous sacrifices made by their family and loved ones. “More than just our gratitude, veterans and their families deserve the support of a grateful nation when they return home. Minnesota’s 400,000 veterans need good jobs, high-quality health care, the benefits they are due and deserve, and robust educational and housing opportunities. I am proud of how far we have come to meet these obligations, but I know that we have much more work to do. “This Veterans Day, let us renew our commitment to our veterans and their families. Let us ensure that they receive the gratitude and support that they have earned. And let us honor the commitment that, just as
McCollum Floor Remarks Opposing House Republicans’ Tax Scam
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) delivered remarks on the House Floor today in strong opposition to House Republicans’ tax bill, which increases taxes on many middle class families to provide giveaways to big corporations and billionaires. Video of Congresswoman McCollum’s remarks is available here. The full text is below: Mr. Speaker, I rise today in strong opposition to Republicans’ tax scam. The middle class receives virtually no benefit from this bill. In fact, many of my constituents will actually see a tax increase. This bill hits middle class Minnesotans especially hard by dismantling the state and local tax deduction. It increases costs for college students and their families, it abandons adoptive parents, and it punishes people with high medical bills. Why does this bill hurt hard-working families? So President Trump and Republicans can pay for a giveaway to the wealthiest Americans. Big corporations and billionaires will see their taxes slashed. Wealthy hei
