Himes talks economy, debt reduction

The country is at great risk for a double-dip recession, but that doesn't mean the government should make haphazard spending cuts, U.S. Rep. Jim Himes, D-Greenwich, told a small group of local business peopleTuesday. "There are people, often on the other side of the aisle from me, who say, at all costs, cut," Himes said. "Scale back teachers, scale back government spending, scale back defense, you name it. Yes, we need to do that. But you do it too much, too fast, and you're going to do exactly what this nation did in '37 and bounce back into a double-dip." Himes addressed members of the ...

Himes leads bipartisan Reclamation of War Powers Act
WASHINGTON, DC—Today, Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) and Walter Jones (NC-03) along with Peter Welch (VT-At-Large), Seth Moulton (MA-06), Ruben Gallego (AZ-07), Kathleen Rice (NY-04) and Kurt Schrader (OR-05) introduced The Reclamation of War Powers Act, a bill that would explicitly return the power to declare and wage war back to Congress, as the Constitution requires. “The power to make war is explicitly granted to Congress in Article I Section 8 of the Constitution,” said Himes.  “Over many decades, however, this power has migrated increasingly to the President. We are now in a situation where military actions are carried out by the US around the world without the explicit approval of Congress and under the auspices of Authorizations for Use of Military Force from many years ago. It’s an abrogation of Congress’s Constitutional duties and we have an obligation to take back that power on behalf of the American people. ” “For years, Congress has abdicated its constituti
Himes: No Obama wiretapping, Trump Russia investigation fact-based
WASHINGTON, DC— Today Congressman Jim Himes released the following statement on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence’s hearing on Russian interference in our election, ties between the Trump campaign and Russian figures and President Trump’s claims that he was surveilled: “Yesterday’s hearing of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence began to answer some questions the American people have been asking for a long time. Speaking for the FBI, NSA and Justice Department, FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Michael Rogers stated there is no evidence whatsoever to back up President Trump’s baseless claims that former President Obama wiretapped Trump Tower.  Questions about if the Trump campaign’s potential ties to Russia were made up by the President’s enemies were also put to rest as Director Comey confirmed that there is an ongoing investigation into the links and possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia – this was ba
Himes: President and Congress Need Clear Syria Strategy
WASHINGTON, DC— Today, Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) released the following statement on the United States missile strikes against Syrian targets: “Last night’s missile strikes were a proportionate response to the Assad regime’s brutal use of chemical weapons against innocent civilians. They will lessen the ability of the Syrian military to continue its crimes and send a message that there will be consequences for those who violate the laws of war. “This strike is not a coherent military strategy in a country torn by a conflict for which there is no military solution. It also represents the latest act of war by a U.S. president not authorized by Congress, as required by our Constitution. The U.S. is all too often pulled into conflicts in the Middle East that either do not end, or end badly. I urge the President to work with the Congress to develop a clear strategy to avoid that fate and bring this horrendous conflict to an end.”
Himes: Republican health care plan cruel, will cost lives
WASHINGTON, DC— Today Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) released the following statement on the Congressional Budget Office’s analysis of the Republican American Health Care Act: “Republicans in Congress have reached a crucial decision point. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office today revealed that the Republican health care plan would strip health care away from 24 million Americans over the next decade and especially harm low-income people and seniors. Promises that their plan would cover more Americans have now been proven empty. President Trump and Speaker Ryan can now continue to pursue this deeply flawed and unpopular fever dream or they can take the reasonable path forward and work with Democrats to fix shortcomings in the Affordable Care Act, something they could and should have done years ago. “The CBO also projected $337 billion in savings over the next 10 years as a result of the bill. As Chair of the New Democrat Coalition, I am as serious as anyone about defic
