President sets nation’s goals in annual address to Congress
The State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday gave President Obama the opportunity to report how our nation is doing and, as importantly, set goals for our future. The President began in office when America was in the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s. Now, he can point to lower unemployment, strong economic growth, improved graduation rates, reduced dependence on foreign energy, and world-leading cuts in carbon pollution. There are still individuals in America who have not recovered and geographic areas that are doing less well than the nation as a whole. But even in the Northern Mariana Islands we see improvement. Tourism is up. We are sending more students to college. And some businesses and homeowners are shifting away from imported oil to renewable energy sources. I thought the President laid out the right strategies to build on current growth. In particular Congress needs to move forward on the President’s education agend
Kilili hails Obama’s leadership, America’s progress
Marianas Variety – DESPITE challenges, the nation has seen significant economic progress under the Obama administration and U.S. Congressman Gregorio Kilili Camacho Sablan hailed his State of the Union Address yesterday which touted economic progress in the nation. “The President was able to give a very strong speech tonight because after six years of his leadership, America as a whole is doing well. Unemployment is down. Economic growth is up. Graduation rates have improved. The country is less dependent on foreign oil. We have cut our carbon emissions,” said Sablan.  However, Congressman Sablan does recognize that despite the progress there are still individuals facing challenges. “Of course there are individuals in our country who are still hurting and areas of our country where more needs to improve,” he said. He also said even in the Northern Marianas, the economy is growing. “Tourism is up. We are sending more students to college. And we are beginning to see business
Setting reasonable limits on campaign financing
This week, I decided to be an original cosponsor of H.J. Res. 22, legislation that begins the process of amending the U.S. Constitution to state clearly that Congress may set reasonable limits on campaign financing and may also prohibit corporations or other artificial entities created by law from spending money to influence elections. The proposed Constitutional amendment is a response to recent Supreme Court rulings that amplify the voices of those with money at the expense of ordinary Americans. Five years ago, in the case of Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, the Court granted corporations the right to spend unlimited sums of money in our elections. Last year, in McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, the Court lifted the $123,200 limit on individual contributions to candidates, so that now the wealthy may spend more than $6 million in each federal election cycle to candidates, parties, and joint election funds. We can see the results: in the 2014 midterm electio
Hoyer resolution would restore the vote for Delegates
House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) introduced H. Res. 44 this week, which would amend the House rules to allow the Delegates of the District of Columbia, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Resident Commissioner of Puerto Rico to vote in the Committee of the Whole House. I was able to vote on the floor of the House on the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act and other vital legislation during my first two years in office. When Republicans took the majority in 2011, however, they took away the vote that representatives of non-state areas enjoyed under Democratic leadership. “I am re-introducing legislation to provide House Delegates and the Resident Commissioner with the right to vote in the Committee of the Whole House so that the nearly five million Americans they represent have a voice in Congress,” Mr. Hoyer said. “I strongly urge the House Republican leadership to reconsider … so that Delegates and the Resident Commi
