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: Trump immigration orders antithetical to American values
WASHINGTON, DC— Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) released the following statement on President Trump’s executive orders related to immigration and border control: Today, President Trump signed executive orders regarding immigration, border security and sanctuary cities. If he were actually serious about the safety of our citizens, however, he would work with Congress to create a well thought-out and comprehensive plan to increase the security of our nation. Instead, Trump continues to push extreme ideas such as a border wall that won’t provide more security, extreme enforcement that will likely lead to raids in our cities and families being torn apart at the border, and policies that will return people back to dangerous countries with no protection. These actions undermine our leadership and values around the globe, leading to a less secure world and a less secure America. Coupled with the orders we expect him to issue tomorrow that will turn away refugees fleeing terror, these orde
Himes to Attend Trump Inauguration
WASHINGTON, DC— Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) released the following statement on his decision to attend the inauguration on January 20th: Like most voting Americans, I am gravely concerned with the coming Trump Presidency. Donald Trump has not shown the temperament, integrity or wisdom necessary to run a small town.  But, because of the constitutional process by which we choose our President, he will legally assume that office on Friday. I respect the decision of those who choose not to attend his Inauguration. Donald Trump has said and done nothing to earn the company and witness of my friend John Lewis.  But I choose differently. Fifty five years ago, a young and idealistic President opened his inaugural address with the observation that an inauguration is "not a victory of party, but a celebration of freedom." Presidents Carter, Bush and Obama, Secretary Clinton, Senator Sanders and I will be there Friday not to celebrate an intemperate and cynical new President, but to witness
Jim Himes Statement on nomination of Neil Gorsuch to SCOTUS
WASHINGTON, DC— Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) released the following statement on President Trump’s nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court: "Tonight, President Trump nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch to be the next Justice of the Supreme Court. I understand that Judge Gorsuch is respected in legal circles. However, his nomination is the conclusion of a cynical and unprecedented ploy by Senate Republicans to deny President Obama his constitutional right to appoint a Justice. The idea that a President should not nominate a Justice in his final year is found neither in history nor in the Constitution. The Senate Republicans' robbery was the worst and most consequential example of their radical opposition to President Obama. "Fairness and comity demand that the Senate not confirm Judge Gorsuch unless he is as qualified and as moderate a jurist as Judge Merrick Garland, who by any standard of decency should occupy this Supreme Court seat." 
Trump refugee order betrays U.S. core values
WASHINGTON, DC— Congressman Jim Himes (CT-04) released the following statement on President Trump’s executive orders halting immigration and refugee admittance into the United States: “I am outraged at Donald Trump's inhumane Executive Order banning refugees and immigrants from across the globe. It undermines the United States' national security and our moral authority while causing even more suffering for those fleeing war-torn regions or oppressive regimes. “This action has brought the dark dreams of anti-Muslim hate rhetoric to life.  I have spent the past day hearing from my constituents and Americans across the country who are beside themselves over families being torn apart and a nation betraying its promise and its core values.  I will do all I can to stop this action, including making sure the voices of all my constituents are heard, examining legal actions, and organizing my colleagues in Congress to do the same.”
