Gerlach Challengers Headed to Democratic Primary Rematch


Veteran Manan Trivedi might have some company in his quest for the Democratic nod to challenge Rep. Jim Gerlach (R-Pa.) next year. Doug Pike, who came within 714 votes of defeating Trivedi last year, told Roll Call he is “seriously” looking at another bid. “I’m seriously considering running again for Congress,” Pike, a former newspaper editorial writer, said in a brief phone interview. Pike’s comments come just a couple of days after Trivedi officially announced he would run against Gerlach a second time. Pike’s interest means Democrats could have a ...


Paulsen and Gerlach: Medical Device Tax Hinders Innovation


At a time when our greatest priority needs to be creating jobs for our unemployed citizens, the government is on the verge of implementing a new medical device excise tax that will eliminate more than 40,000 well-paying jobs and imperil America’s global competitiveness in one of our leading industrial and technological sectors. When asked earlier this year in a House committee hearing about the new tax on medical devices that will take effect in 2013, the secretary of Health and Human Services called the $20 billion tax “modest” and said, essentially, that it was so ...

Gerlach: President must end speculation about sanctions against Israel
As media reports continued to swirl Friday that the White House has held internal discussions about potential sanctions against Israel, U.S. Rep. Jim Gerlach (PA-6th District) called on the President to swiftly and publicly refute any notion that our closest ally in the Middle East would face unilateral punishment. "Israel is a valued partner and the brightest beacon for democracy and respect for basic human rights in a region ravaged by violence, intolerance and extremism," Gerlach said. "Imposing sanctions against Israel would be a grave mistake. Such an egregious error in judgment would embolden those who want Israel wiped off the map and radical terrorists plotting every day to attack the United States and our Western allies. That's why it's crucial for the President to stop this nonsense. I hope he speaks out immediately and dispels the troubling rumors about sanctioning a key ally." Media outlets in Israel and Washington have reported that senior White House officials discussed
Gerlach legislation to help Ukraine stand up to Putin, fend off Russian aggression sent to President
The U.S. Senate has passed legislation sponsored by Congressional Ukrainian Caucus Co-Chair Jim Gerlach (PA-6th District) that would authorize lethal and non-lethal military aid to Ukraine and impose stricter sanctions against Russian President Vladimir Putin.  The House passed the legislation late Thursday, which was the last voting session day before Gerlach leaves office after six terms. And the legislation was the final bill passed by the House in the two-year session. The measure now goes to the President and would become law with his signature. "I am extremely pleased the House and Senate worked together on an aid package that holds President Putin and Russian officials accountable for propping up separatists in eastern Ukraine that who have wreaked havoc and claimed the lives of more than 4,000 civilians and military personnel in eastern Ukraine," Gerlach said. The legislation on its way to the President (H.R. 5859) is identical to a bill sponsored by U.S. Senate
House passes Gerlach legislation to help Ukraine stand up to Putin, fend off Russian aggression
The House passed legislation late Thursday sponsored by Congressional Ukrainian Caucus Co-Chair Jim Gerlach (PA-6th District) that would authorize lethal and non-lethal military aid to Ukraine and impose stricter sanctions against Russian President Vladimir Putin and other officials responsible for the annexation of Crimea and propping up separatists who have wreaked havoc and claimed the lives of more than 3,000 civilians and military personnel in eastern Ukraine. The legislation (H.R. 5859) is identical to a bill sponsored by U.S. Senate Foreign Relations ranking member Bob Corker (R-TN) and that passed the Senate on Thursday afternoon. Because the bill included loan guarantee provisions and thus, involved raising revenues, a new bill had to be introduced and passed in the House. “This legislation is the result of months of bipartisan work in the House and Senate to send an unmistakable message to Vladimir Putin and the entire world that the United States fully supports
Gerlach, Costello offer condolences to families of fallen New York City police officers
Congressman Jim Gerlach and Congressman-elect Ryan Costello (PA-6th District) issued the following statement after a lone gunman on Saturday ambushed and executed two New York City police officers sitting in a parked patrol car in Brooklyn: "Our thoughts and prayers are with the New York City Police Department and the families of fallen police officers Wenjin Liu and Raphael Ramos as they cope with this sudden and senseless loss. By all accounts, Officers Liu and Ramos were targeted simply because of the jobs that they held and the badges that they wore. All lives matter regardless of the color of our skin, the color of the uniform we wear to work or our party affiliation. The unbridled rage and unspeakable violence that claimed the lives of Officers Liu and Ramos should give pause to anyone seeking to divide communities by pitting citizens against police officers. "It is our hope that as we gather with family and loved ones to celebrate Christmas and Chanukah, we remember those fam
