Rep.Lewis Joins Rep.Johnson to Produce Mega-Job Fair

Washington might not be working on trying to help Atlantans find jobs, but Reps. John Lewis and Hank Johnson are. In conjunction with the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), Lewis and Johnson joined forces to try to host the most comprehensive job fair this year. In response to skyrocketing unemployment in the African American community on top of high national averages, the CBC decided to launch the “For the People” Jobs Initiative to raise awareness and built support for H. Res. 348, which calls on Congress to pass more than 40 bills proposed by the CBC to help alleviate the ...

Rep. Hank Johnson: Regaining Prosperity… and Protecting It

I am so pleased to see The Huffington Post inaugurating its Black Voices site, and I appreciate the opportunity to contribute in its first week. As an African-American member of Congress at this critical moment in our nation's history, my first duty is to bring jobs back to the community I represent. To create jobs, we need smart and bold investments that put people back to work today and sustain opportunity in the future -- investments in infrastructure, energy, education, science and technology. The Recovery Act stimuluspackage that was passed inearly 2009 helped stabilize an economy in ...

Rep. Johnson highlights new report showing GOP Tax Plan raises taxes on families, eliminates state and local tax deduction
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Hank Johnson (GA-04) highlighted a new report showing the Ryan-McConnell tax framework unveiled by Republicans last week would dramatically increase the tax burdens of many families living in Georgia’s Fourth District -- many by an average of $9,158 through the elimination of the state and local tax deduction alone.  More than 44 million American households claim the state and local tax deduction each year. “Real tax reform doesn’t raise taxes on hard-working families while handing hundreds of billions of dollars in tax breaks to the wealthiest one percent, but that’s exactly what the Ryan-McConnell tax plan would do,” said Rep. Johnson. “I call upon all my Georgia Republican Congressional colleagues to join me in opposing this inexplicable provision to raise taxes on working people.  Families in my district shouldn’t be paying more in taxes so Republicans can add trillions to the deficit giving tax breaks to billionaires.” An addi
Congressman Hank Johnson's E-Newsletter for Oct. 4, 2017
Dear Friends, This week, I joined the nation to mourn the tragic loss of 59 concert goers in Las Vegas. They were simply enjoying some live music when a barrage of firepower that can only be compared with a military battlefield rained down on them from a hotel window above. More than 500 people were hurt in what is the largest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. While I extend my thoughts and prayers to the victims and applaud our first responders, thoughts and prayers are not enough. Now, more than ever, we must continue the conversation to seek common-sense legislation to prevent gun violence in America. For starters, I’m calling for the establishment of a bipartisan Select Committee on Gun Violence to study and report back common-sense legislation. Thoughts and prayers are all well and good, but they won’t prevent the next mass shooting.   HURRICANE RELIEF: The 2017 hurricane season has struck our nation with particular ferocity. As Texas and Florida begin rebuilding
Johnson Joins House Democrats to Trump Admin: Florida Nursing Home Tragedy Is a Wake-Up Call to Protect the Fundamental Rights of Residents Against Abuse
WASHINGTON, D.C. – In the wake of disturbing reports of the neglect of nursing home residents in the wake of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, 46 members of Congress called on Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Administrator Seema Verma to maintain current protections for elder Americans against abuse in nursing homes.    In Florida, 12 residents died and more than 100 were hospitalized after a long-term care facility failed to evacuate residents after losing air conditioning in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. In Texas, similar abuse occurred at a facility that refused to evacuate despite severe flooding. The letter is led by Representatives David N. Cicilline (RI-01), John Conyers, Jr. (MI-13), Henry C. “Hank” Johnson, Jr. (GA-04), Jerrold Nadler (NY-10), Linda Sánchez (CA-38), and Suzanne Bonamici (OR-01).   They wrote: “The horrific reports of abuse at facilities in Florida and Texas in the wake of Hurricanes Irma and Harvey underscore the need for your ag
