Failed DCCC head Van Hollen will take liberal line in SC

Chris Van Hollen is the liberal counterpoint to House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan, whose fiscal blueprint calls for broad whacks at entitlement programs. Van Hollen, as the ranking Democrat on the budget committee, says Republicans would “increase tax breaks for millionaires and special interests and pays for these new tax cuts on the backs of working Americans” while Democrats would keep “our commitments to America’s seniors and most vulnerable instead of dismantling Medicare and Medicaid.” And, for good measure, the Republican plan “amounts to a ...

Supercommittee failure could trigger US credit downgrade

Supercommittee member Chris Van Hollen (centre) said: 'We are leaving no stone unturned, negotiations continue and we are looking to find a way'. Photograph: Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images Economists are warning of dire consequences if US politicians fail to make progress this weekend in tense talks aimed at reducing America's massive deficit ahead of a Wednesday deadline. The bi-partisan congressional super-committee is charged with drawing up plans for a $1.2tn reduction in the nation's deficit by the middle of next week. Failure to do so will trigger an automatic "sequester" that ...

Van Hollen, Bicameral Coalition of Lawmakers Supports FDA’s Proposed Rule to Protect Consumers of Generic Drugs
House Budget Committee Ranking Member Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), Senate HELP Committee Chairman Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), House Energy & Commerce Committee Ranking Member Henry A. Waxman (D-Calif.), House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member John Conyers (D-Mich.), Senator Al Franken (D-Minn.), and Rep. Bruce Braley (D-Iowa) led a bicameral coalition of 17 Senators and 24 Members of the House in submitting Congressional comments to support the Food and Drug Administration’s Proposed Rule to ensure that generic manufacturers of prescription drugs can update their warning labels to provide better patient safety information to consumers. The 41 lawmakers serve on the Senate and House Committees charged with oversight of the nation’s policies on health, consumer rights, aging, and veterans’ affairs. The FDA’s Proposed Rule follows a 2011 Supreme Court case in which a patient who was gravely injured by a prescription drug was
Van Hollen, McKinley, Walz, Gibson, Huffman, Reichert Introduce Bipartisan IDEA Full Funding Act
Today Congressmen Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), David McKinley (R-WV), Tim Walz (D-MN), Chris Gibson (R-NY), Jared Huffman (D-CA), and David Reichert (R-WA) announced introduction of the bipartisan IDEA Full Funding Act. In 1975, Congress took the critical step of passing the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and guaranteeing that every child with disabilities would have the opportunity to reach his or her full potential. At that time, the federal government committed to pay 40 percent of the average per pupil expenditure for special education. However, that pledge has never been met, and current funding is at just 15.3 percent. The IDEA Full Funding Act would require regular increases in IDEA spending to finally  meet our commitment to America’s children and schools. “We are proud to introduce the IDEA Full Funding Act today to ensure that the federal government pays its fair share of the costs of educating students with disabilities. For too long, Congress has f
Van Hollen Statement on the President’s Budget
Today Maryland Congressman Chris Van Hollen, Ranking Member of the House Budget Committee, issued the following statement on President Obama’s budget proposal: “Today President Obama submitted his fiscal year 2015 budget request that expands economic growth, makes critical investments in our future, and responsibly reduces the deficit. It closes special interest tax breaks that encourage companies to ship jobs overseas and invests those savings here at home to power our economy and sharpen our competitive edge. These investments in education, scientific research, advanced manufacturing, and vital infrastructure – coupled with an increase in the minimum wage – will help put Americans back to work and grow the middle class. The President’s budget also puts the federal debt on a consistently declining path as a share of the economy. It is a proposal that strengthens our nation and helps ensure broadly shared prosperity.”
Van Hollen Opening Statement: The President’s Fiscal Year 2015 Budget
Today Maryland Congressman Chris Van Hollen, Ranking Member of the House Budget Committee, made opening remarks at the House Budget Committee hearing on the President’s Fiscal Year 2015 Budget with Office of Management and Budget Director Sylvia M. Burwell. Below are his remarks as prepared for delivery: “Director Burwell, I want to join the Chairman in welcoming you to the House Budget Committee, and thank you for your service to our nation. “Early in your tenure, you experienced a baptism of fire by having to confront an unnecessary, destructive, and costly 16-day government shutdown. I hope those antics are behind us. I am sure the American public would agree that never again should a political party inflict that kind of harm on the country in pursuit of an ideological agenda.  “Now, these budget documents contain reams of numbers – but at their core, they are a reflection of our priorities and our values. And when you boil down the President’s budget, it is clea
