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.

Himes statement on Fmr. FBI Director Comey’s Statement to Senate Intel.
WASHINGTON, DC— Today Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) released the following statement on the prepared statement from former FBI Director James Comey as part of his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee tomorrow: “Former FBI Director Comey’s statement for tomorrow’s hearing, as released by the Senate Intelligence Committee this afternoon, paints a detailed and disturbing picture of a President obsessed with loyalty, secrecy, and exerting inappropriate pressure to achieve his goals. At the very least, President Trump’s actions should instill a sense of profound worry in the American people about a leader with no sense of propriety or an understanding of the need for independence of law enforcement within the executive branch, an independence that has been respected by Presidents for generations. The testimony, in conjunction with Comey’s firing, also raises the question of whether President Trump was improperly trying to end the investigation into ties between Ru
Himes statement on Fmr. FBI Director Comey’s Senate Testimony
WASHINGTON, DC— Today Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) released the following statement on former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee: “Former FBI Director Comey’s testimony in the open forum today provided more transparency and answers to the American public. In his testimony, he explained, in no uncertain terms, that he believes President Trump directed him to end the FBI investigation into Michael Flynn. Whether this irresponsible behavior rises to the level of obstruction of justice is a question for federal law enforcement under the direction of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.  “I will continue to work with the House Intelligence Committee in a bipartisan fashion to gather documents, interview witnesses and conduct a thorough and unbiased investigation.  In cooperation with the Senate and FBI, we will get to the bottom of the matter.”
Himes statement on Trump abandoning Paris Climate Agreement
WASHINGTON, DC— Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) released the following statement on President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from teh Paris Climate Agreement: "Pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement is a terrible decision that leads us down a path to rising sea levels and destructive weather that will wreak havoc on our planet. Drought, climate refugees and competition over dwindling resources will destabilize global security. Without a coordinated global effort to combat climate change, the future looks bleak. "Leading scientists believe that window of opportunity for us to avert the most disastrous scenarios caused by climate change is quickly closing. Now is a moment when we should be banding together with the world to face what could very well be the greatest threat to our continued survival as a species. Instead, President Trump has once again adopted an extreme, fringe position and is placing our families, nation and world at great risk. This is a shameful day."
Himes statement on Trump’s ending of DAPA
WASHINGTON, DC— Today Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) released the following statement on President Donald Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans program: “Today’s action by the Trump administration to end the Delayed Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) program goes against fundamental American values, chiefly, the profound importance of strong stable families. In order to achieve our shared goal of a strong, secure nation we need to concentrate our efforts on programs and policies that will actually make us safer, not on tearing families apart. For generations, the rest of the world has looked to America as an example of freedom and generosity of spirit. Ending programs like DAPA, however, endangers that standing and represents a step in the wrong direction for our nation.  We are better than this.” “La acción de hoy por parte de la administración Trump para poner fin al programa de Acciones Diferidas para Padres de los Americanos (DAPA)
