Interviews with Reps. Fred Upton and Steve Israel

KING: The man heading that investigation [into Solyandra] is the Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton; we spoke a short time ago. KING: Mr. Chairman, I want to get into the details in a second, but first I want to set the threshold question, is it your question whether political influence, campaign contributions had role here or is your biggest question whether the administration should have seen a flashing light saying this company was in trouble and not giving them the money? REP. FRED UPTON (R), MICHIGAN: All of the above. From the way that I understand it, the Bush ...

Upton 'bitterly disappointed' with super committee's failure

Congressman Fred Upton said he is "bitterly disappointed" that the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction did not reach an agreement to trim $1.5 trillion from the federal deficit."I spent the last three months as one of 12 members who faced steep odds to find agreement, but who shared an understanding that our fiscal challenges cannot be ignored," Upton said in a statement released tonight. "I am bitterly disappointed that we were not able to find enough common ground to deliver the deficit reduction choices that Congress needs to make, but I am not deterred in my commitment to keep at ...

Fred Upton is on the debt 'super committee'

Michigan Republican Fred Upton has established his credentials as an adversary of environmental regulation during his chairmanship of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. So his appointment to the "super committee" charged with working out cuts to address the nation's budget deficit is certain to raise eyebrows among environmentalists. Upton has shepherded a bill to strip the Environmental Protection Agency of its authority to regulate greenhouse gases, which a Supreme Court decision said was the purview of the agency. Once a champion of banning incandescent light bulbs, he has promised ...

Upton, Green Introduce Legislation to Improve Cancer Care
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, alongside U.S. Rep. Gene Green, D-Texas, introduced H.R. 1920, a bill that would ensure cancer patients across the country continue to have access to life-saving treatments and care. H.R. 1920 addresses a flawed Medicare reimbursement formula that results in some providers not being adequately paid for their services. “Here in Michigan we have 19 dedicated cancer centers including the Lakeland HealthCare Marie Yeager Cancer Center in St. Joseph,” said Upton. “Our common-sense, bipartisan legislative fix corrects the Medicare reimbursement formula that currently threatens the distribution of cancer care drugs across the country. This will ensure patients continue to receive the highest quality cancer care available. I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle here in the House and in the Senate to move this bill forward.” “The prompt pay discount is affecting the delivery of treatment to our seniors and having
Upton and DeGette Urge Administration to Rethink NIH Budget Cuts
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-Michigan, and U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette, D-Colorado, sent a letter to Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney to express opposition to any cuts to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Fiscal Year 2017 or 2018 budget. “NIH research saves millions of lives every year making the basic discoveries that allow businesses to develop new treatments, medications, and cures for patients,” write Upton and DeGette. “In FY16, investments in biomedical research directly supported over 379,000 jobs and indirectly supported another 1.62 million Americans working in the bioscience industry, powering $65 billion in economic growth nationwide. Those investments will be crucial to controlling long-term entitlement costs. Today, 1 out of 3 Medicare dollars is spent on diabetes-related care, and 1 out of 5 Medicare dollars is spent on Alzheimer’s related care. Without new research to find cures, these diseases will bankrupt our nation. “This is not a part
Upton Statement on Syria
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, released the following statement after the United States launched missile strikes on a Syrian airfield in response to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad using chemical weapons to kill his own people:   “After Assad delivered a heinous chemical attack on his own citizens, an unmistakable message had to be delivered. I believe these targeted, measured airstrikes were an appropriate response to the unfolding atrocities. As we move forward, the administration must work with Congress and the international community to support these efforts.” Additional background: In April, Upton visited the Bethany Christian Services Refugee Center in Grand Rapids to better understand the challenges refugees, including those from Syria, are facing. He will continue to support the humane and just treatment of refugees from war-torn regions. 
Upton Statement on Bipartisan House Investigation into Russia
U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today released the following statement on the news that House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-California, was stepping aside from the House investigation into whether Russia meddled in last year’s president election.   “I continue to support the bipartisan investigations occurring in the House and the Senate. Based on what happened, it’s appropriate that Chairman Nunes steps away from this investigation. I remain confident that my colleagues in both the House and Senate will oversee professional, bipartisan investigations into Russia’s actions. We must follow the facts wherever they lead.”
