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 statement on Comey Firing
Congressman Jim Himes (CT04) released the following statement on President Trump's firing of FBI Director Comey: "I am deeply troubled by President Trump's firing of FBI Director Comey in the middle of a investigation into possible links and connections between Trump, his campaign and associates and Russia. The White House cited Director Comey's handling of the investigation into Secretary Clinton's emails as the reason for the firing, but many will be rightly skeptical of that explanation.   "Whatever the merits of Director Comey's decisions, the investigated has just fired the investigator. That should never have occurred prior to the full and complete insulation of the FBI's investigation through the appointment of an independent prosecutor and other measures. The faith of the American people in their government will be shaken if we cannot rely on the instruments of justice to function free of political interference. In this situation the interference appears political and adds to
Himes statement on passage of Continuing Resolution
WASHINGTON, DC— Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) released the following statement after the House of Representatives passed a continuing resolution to fund the federal government today: “Today, we were able to pass a funding bill to keep the government open without any poison pills like funding for the President’s border wall or defunding Planned Parenthood, which provides vital health services to millions of women each year. “As Congress moves forward, we should learn a lesson from the passage of this funding package as well as the continued failure of the Republicans’ efforts to throw millions of people off of their health care. In the current climate, the American people are not looking for us to govern from the most extreme edges of the political spectrum. Instead, they require that we find areas of thoughtful common interest and make progress where we can; at minimum, they expect us to keep the lights on without dramatic and controversial policy shifts slipped into last min
Himes votes against AHCA
WASHINGTON, DC— Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) released the following statement after his vote against the Republican American Health Care Act (AHCA): “Today, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and President Trump have turned their backs on the American people and the people of Connecticut. The bill passed today gives an enormous tax cut to the wealthiest Americans by making insurance much harder, or even impossible, to get for poor or sick individuals or families, and making whatever insurance may be available to them worse. If this bill were to become law, we would see an estimated 24 million Americans, possibly many more, thrown off their insurance. Americans will live sicker. Americans will die sooner. “I believe that we are not a cruel country – that we are fundamentally generous and empathetic. Today’s tragic vote makes it very clear that a bipartisan solution is the only way to actually improve our healthcare system. I stand ready to work to make these i
Himes statement on Committee passage of Financial CHOICE Act
WASHINGTON, DC— Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) released the following statement after the House Financial Services Committee voted yesterday to advance the Financial CHOICE Act along partisan lines: “I am proud to vote against the damaging Financial CHOICE Act in the Financial Services Committee and take a stand on behalf of the American people. When I entered Congress in early 2009, the financial crisis was at its peak.  We fought long and hard to mitigate the damage caused by reckless behavior and help American families and small businesses get back on their feet by passing Dodd-Frank reform. Still, our recovery has been slow but steady and we have much work left to ensure that the recovery reaches everyone. That should be our priority. “Instead, the bill passed by the Republicans on the Committee today takes a huge step toward undoing all of the protections we have instituted. It strips power away from the SEC and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau; makes it easier for b
