Sensenbrenner discusses a wide range of topics


U.S. Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Wisconsin, made a winter town hall appearance Monday morning at the Sullivan Village Hall, meeting with constituents to discuss everything from his ongoing battle against higher taxes to the proper destination of Canadian oil. “I have a most responsible voting record against higher taxes,” Sensenbrenner told a very small but politically passionate group gathered for the session — among its members was Assembly District 31 Rep. Steve Nass, R-Elkhorn. Sensenbrenner said he is proud of that voting record. “But I have voted against a lot of ...


Congressman critical of Obama's address


Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI) joined State Rep. Don Pridemore (R-Hartford) at Sussex Village Hall on Jan. 27 to speak with their constituents. Residents posed a host of questions to Sensenbrenner, asking him about the state of the U.S. Postal Service, the federal budget, taxes, military base closures, and his thoughts on President Obama's State of the Union address. When asked about the postal service, the GOP lawmaker said, "There are going to have to be some changes made. I don't think we need six-day-a-week mail. I do think that getting rid of Saturday delivery may be a mistake, ...


Sensenbrenner Insults Michelle Obama's 'Big Butt'!


We know we're in a nasty political climate but partisanship has gone way, way too far when a Republican Congressman attacks the First Lady for having a 'large posterior.' Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner you are a rude dude. You recently were heard complaining loudly at the Delta Crown lounge at Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C., that Michelle Obama should practice what she preaches with her "Let's Move" campaign, promoting healthy eating and exercise habits."She lectures us on eating right while she has a large posterior herself," he complained on the phone. In other words, ...

Court Rules the NSA’s Bulk Collection Program Is Illegal
The 2nd Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals today ruled that the National Security Agency’s bulk collection of telephony metadata is illegal. Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) had the following response: “Today’s court decision reaffirms what I’ve been saying since the Snowden leaks came to light. Congress never intended Section 215 to allow bulk collection. This program is illegal and based on a blatant misinterpretation of the law. It’s time for Congress to pass the USA FREEDOM Act in order to protect both civil liberties and national security with legally authorized surveillance.”
Joint Release: House Judiciary Committee Overwhelmingly Approves the USA FREEDOM Act
The House Judiciary Committee today approved by a vote of 25-2 the USA FREEDOM Act (H.R. 2048). This bipartisan bill – introduced by Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations Subcommittee Chairman Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.), House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), Ranking Member John Conyers (D-Mich.), and Courts, Intellectual Property and the Internet Subcommittee Ranking Member Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.), along with 19 other bipartisan House Judiciary Committee cosponsors – reforms our nation’s intelligence-gathering programs operated under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. The USA FREEDOM Act expands upon the civil liberties protections contained in the bill approved by the House of Representatives last year. It ends bulk collection of data, strengthens protections for civil liberties, increases transparency, and prevents government overreach, while also protecting national security. The bill is supported by a broad coalition of civil lib
Sensenbrenner, Goodlatte, Conyers, Nadler Introduce the USA Freedom Act
Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations Subcommittee Chairman Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.), House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), Ranking Member John Conyers (D-Mich.), and Courts, Intellectual Property and the Internet Subcommittee Ranking Member Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) today will introduce the USA Freedom Act. This bipartisan bill builds on the Committee’s extensive work on this issue last Congress, containing even stronger protections for Americans’ civil liberties, providing for even greater transparency for both the private sector and government, and preventing government overreach, while enhancing national security. The House Judiciary Committee will mark up this legislation on Thursday, April 30th at 10:00 a.m. in 2141 Rayburn House Office Building. In June 2013, unauthorized disclosures of classified information revealed to the American people that the National Security Agency had been collecting bulk telephony “metadata” under the Fore
Statement by Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations Subcommittee Chairman Jim Sensenbrenner
Congressman Sensenbrenner: The USA FREEDOM Act ends bulk collection, increases transparency, and stops secret laws.  Right now, as we speak, the NSA is collecting data on every call made to or from every American.  The NSA claims the authority to do this under Section 215 of the PATRIOT Act. I was Chairman of this Committee on September 11 and the author of the PATRIOT Act.  I can say in no uncertain terms that Congress did not intend to allow the bulk collection of Americans’ records.  The government’s over-broad collection is based on a blatant misreading of the law. Last Congress, I introduced the USA FREEDOM Act to re-establish a proper balance between privacy and security.  After months of negotiations, the House passed an amended version of the bill with bipartisan support. Unfortunately, the bill narrowly failed a procedural vote in the Senate.  So we’re back today.  And we have a deadline.  As Chairman, I demanded that eac
