Republicans Oppose Langevin Effort to Stop Multi-million Dollar Gun Giveaway
On Thursday, Congressman Langevin offered a Motion to Instruct House conferees on the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to reject provisions that would transfer surplus Army pistols to the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP). The motion was rejected 237-184. “We have the opportunity in this year’s NDAA to stop tens of thousands of Army pistols from being transferred to an obsolete private corporation,” said Congressman Langevin. “This constitutes a multi-million dollar government giveaway that would serve only to make our streets more dangerous. In voting down this motion, Republicans ignored their own rules regarding earmarks and continued their pattern of refusing to take any action to reduce gun violence.” “The daily tragedy of gun violence challenges the conscience of our nation,” said Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “Congressman Langevin’s commonsense proposal would have prevented tens of thousands of guns from being unleashed in our communities. It is de
Langevin Statement on House Republican Tax Proposal
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI) issued the following statement regarding the release of the House Republican tax proposal: “After months of secret negotiations without a single public hearing, House Republicans have finally released their tax reform proposal. Unsurprisingly, the bill will disproportionately benefit the wealthiest Americans and dramatically reduce taxes paid by corporations. While some of the incentives in the Republican package may benefit working Americans, they are mere crumbs compared to what meaningful tax reform could bring to our state and country. “In fact, many middle class Rhode Islanders may end up paying higher taxes due to the elimination of deductions for student loans, medical expenses, and state taxes, as well as new limitations on the property tax and mortgage interest deductions. Small businesses, too, are an afterthought in the Republican proposal with most of the cuts going to larger, wealthier corporations.  To add insult to injury, the cost of
Langevin Statement on Trump Administration’s Actions to Destabilize Health Insurance Markets
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI) issued the following statement regarding President Trump’s Executive Order to weaken consumer protections for certain health plans and his decision to end Cost Sharing Reductions under the Affordable Care Act: “I strongly condemn the President’s reckless actions to destabilize the health insurance market just two and half weeks before the 2018 open enrollment period begins. The President’s Executive Order and subsequent decision to abruptly end Cost Sharing Reduction payments is a one-two punch that will directly affect the affordability of health coverage for hardworking families. Choking off these payments will drive up premiums for many Americans already struggling to pay for insurance.  The Administration is sabotaging critical pieces of a law that has provided millions of people with access to care in a cynical attempt to precipitate a crisis. “We should be working together to strengthen our health care system. That is why I introduced th
Langevin Statement on the President’s Decision to Decertify Iran Nuclear Deal
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI), a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee, released the following statement following President Trump’s decertification of Iran’s compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) regarding Iranian nuclear weapons: “The President’s actions today threaten both our national security and international stability. The objective of the JCPOA is clear: to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear arms capability. Iran continues to comply with the requirements of the agreement, which include a reduced stockpile of low-enriched uranium; strict limitations on centrifuges, research and development efforts, and the amount of fissile materials; and on-the-ground inspections and assessments by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). By decertifying their compliance with the JCPOA, the President risks triggering a regional arms race, increasing tensions across the Middle East, and further dividing the global community.” “Preside
