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 calls for pragmatic, consensus path forward on healthcare
WASHINGTON, DC— Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) released the following statement after the “skinny repeal” plan failed in the Senate early this morning 49-51: “This morning, we saw three Republican Senators put country above party. For many Americans, including me, the sense of relief was palpable. For a moment at least, a glimmer of hope has reemerged that we may actually be able to fix the problems with our existing healthcare system and reduce costs for hard-working families across the country without harming millions of Americans. “I have been working with a group of Democrats, led by members of the New Democrat Coalition, to craft a plan to stabilize the healthcare marketplace, the most necessary first step to controlling costs and premium increases. The ideas we are putting forward, and which we have presented to moderate Republican lawmakers for their consideration, are designed to be pragmatic, consensus solutions that actually have a chance of moving forward. “At
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 responds to harmful healthcare proposal from Republican Senators
WASHINGTON, DC— Today Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) released the following statement on the Republican Senate healthcare proposal: “Today, after weeks of negotiations behind closed doors by a small group of Republican Senators, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell unveiled the Senate Republican plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. Much like the House-passed bill that I opposed, the Senate plan rolls back health care coverage for the neediest Americans in order to pay for enormous tax breaks for the wealthiest. It forever shrinks Medicaid, includes grave cuts to Planned Parenthood, enables higher deductibles, and lets states opt out of requiring that insurance companies cover essential health benefits, like hospital visits, maternity care, and mental health services. “Now, for the first time in this hurried process, patient advocates, doctors, and the vast majority of our Senators have the opportunity to read the bill.  The Congressional Budget Office will release its
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)
