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, ...

Sensenbrenner Follow-Up Letter to Cole: Are You Spying on Congress?
Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) sent the following letter to Deputy Attorney General James Cole requesting a response to a February 11 letter regarding spying on Members of Congress. Dear Deputy Attorney General Cole:             On February 11, I sent a letter, cosigned by my colleagues, Congressmen Darrell Issa and Jerrold Nadler, asking you to clarify statements you made before the House Judiciary Committee.  At the House Judiciary Committee hearing on February 4, Congressman Issa asked whether the National Security Agency (NSA) collected information on call records from Congressional offices.  You responded, “We probably do, Mr. Congressman, but we’re not allowed to look at any of those, however, unless we have reasonable, articulable suspicion that those numbers are related to a known terrorist threat.”   Our letter identified a situation when the NSA would collect information on call recor
Protect our right to vote
​By Jim Sensenbrenner ​Published on March 20, 2014 I bristle when people on the right or left suggest there is a conflict between my support for the Voting Rights Act and voter ID laws. The former is possibly the most important civil rights legislation ever passed, and the latter is a useful tool to prevent fraud. The belief that no voter should be disenfranchised and every legal vote should be tallied is nonpartisan. And now, as we approach this year's elections, we must ensure the proper protections are in place. As elected officials, our legitimacy depends on free and fair elections. Support for voting rights and voter identification are consistent goals. Only in hyper-partisan Washington can we lose sight of this. The VRA has two primary mechanisms to combat voter discrimination. Section 2 allows private citizens or the Department of Justice to bring lawsuits to combat discrimination. It is a powerful weapon, but Section 2 lawsuits are costly, difficult to prove,
The Consensus Is Bulk Collection Must End
House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Md.) announced his support for ending bulk collection of Americans’ phone data. Following Congressman Ruppersberger’s announcement, Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) sent him a letter encouraging him to cosponsor the Leahy-Sensenbrenner USA FREEDOM Act, which would end bulk collection. Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner: “Since last summer, calls to rein in the NSA have become deafening. In October, Senator Leahy and I introduced the USA FREEDOM Act to restore trust in the intelligence community and ensure Americans’ civil liberties are protected, while maintaining the necessary tools to protect our national security. Bulk collection has never been authorized by Congress and ongoing activities by the executive branch are a blatant misapplication of the law. “Ranking member Ruppersberger has joined the PCLOB, President Obama’s handpicked review panel, the American people and the more than 160 cospo
The “End Bulk Collection Act” Won’t End Bulk Collection
Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) introduced the USA FREEDOM Act to restore trust in the intelligence community and ensure Americans’ civil liberties are protected, while maintaining the necessary tools to protect our national security. Tomorrow, members of the House Intelligence Committee plan to introduce the End Bulk Collection Act. Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner: “Congress must pass a straightforward bill to address NSA overreach. The End Bulk Collection Act is a convoluted bill that accepts the administration’s deliberate misinterpretation of the law. It limits, but does not end, bulk collection. Provisions included in the draft fall well short of the safeguards in the USA FREEDOM Act and do not strike the proper balance between privacy and security. The End Bulk Collection Act will not have my support.”
