Strengthening the State of our Union

President Obama offered Congress a plan to rebuild our economy with proposals focused on manufacturing, innovation, and workforce training proposals that I and many of my colleagues support and have already been working hard to advance in Congress. This is especially necessary in my home state of Rhode Island, which lost 11,000 manufacturing jobs during the Great Recession and continues to struggle with a 10.8% unemployment rate, the third highest of any state. If the House Republican leadership is serious about working together and with the President to put America back to work, they should ...

There’s been a lot of finger-pointing lately in Washington over the Obama administration’s 2009 decision to give a $535-million federal loan guarantee to Solyndra, a now-defunct solar power manufacturer.The Republican-controlled House has launched an investigation into how the Department of Energy could guarantee such a large loan to a company that would file for bankruptcy only two and a half years later.

Cicilline Statement on Speaker Ryan’s Election
WASHINGTON – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) issued the following statement today: “I extend my congratulations to our new Speaker, Paul Ryan, who I served with on the House Budget Committee. Although I strongly disagreed with him on many important issues, I’ve seen firsthand his willingness to negotiate in good faith with Democrats in order to get things done, and I hope this continues in his new role as Speaker.” “Washington has been defined by gridlock for the last five years because conservative Republicans in the Freedom Caucus refused to allow their leaders to work with Democrats. It’s a sad commentary that the most bipartisan this Congress has been was in the last few weeks since Speaker Boehner announced his retirement.” “Although we have made progress in the past several days, there is a lot more work to do. Democrats and Republicans need to find common ground so that we can invest properly in our nation’s infrastructure, reinvigorate American manu

WASHINGTON – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) issued the following statement after the U.S. Department of Human Services announced it will hold a public forum later this month on access to affordable prescription drugs: “This issue affects seniors, parents, and families all across Rhode Island. Per capita, Americans are spending more today on prescription drugs than any other country in the world. And last year, the cost of prescription drugs increased 10.9% with many middle class families – even some with health insurance – forced to cover this increase out of their own pockets. It shouldn’t be this difficult for anyone to find affordable prescription medications when they need them.” “It’s important that we develop comprehensive strategies that will benefit consumers. That’s why I’m pleased that the Obama administration will host a public forum later this month on identifying innovative solutions to bring down the cost of prescription medications and red
