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 Chairs Hearing on ISIL in America
The Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security and Investigations today held a hearing on “ISIL in America: Domestic Terror and Radicalization.” Subcommittee Chairman Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) gave the following opening statement: Today’s hearing will examine the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant or ISIL and the domestic terrorism threats posed by these terrorists.  Although ISIL seems to have reared its head only in the last eighteen months, a closer look quickly reveals ISIL to be an old foe, one with whom the United States has done battle for more than a decade. Before the group declared itself a global caliphate and adopted its current name, it was merely The Islamic State of Iraq.  During the Iraq War, members of this same group were among the most prolific perpetrators of attacks on American troops and our partners in Iraq.   The procession of name changes, however, has made no difference in ISIL’s commitment to harm Americans. 
Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security and Investigations Hearing on “Civil Asset Forfeiture”
The Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security and Investigations today held a hearing on “Civil Asset Forfeiture.” Subcommittee Chairman Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) provided the following opening statement: It’s hard to believe this can happen in America.  The government is seizing billions of dollars of cash and property from Americans often without charging them with a crime. With origins in medieval law, civil asset forfeiture is premised on the legal fiction that inanimate objects bear moral culpability when used for wrongdoing.  The practice regained prominence as a weapon in the modern drug war as law enforcement sought to disrupt criminal organizations by seizing the cash that sustains them. The practice, however, has proven a far greater affront to civil rights than it has a weapon against crime.  While forfeitures have received increased attention in recent months, they are still poorly understood.  During her recent confirmation hearing
Demanding More from the IRS
Once again tax season is upon us and millions of Americans are preparing to file their federal taxes with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). This year, however, the process is proving more taxing than usual. Explicitly stated in its mission statement, the purpose of the IRS is to “provide America’s taxpayers top quality service by helping them understand and meet their tax responsibilities.” But in January, IRS Commissioner John Koskinen announced that filers can expect delayed refunds, fewer audits and limited assistance for the 2015 tax cycle. Rather than live up to its mission, the agency has set up roadblocks and made it more difficult for Americans to perform their civic duty. From unprecedented hold times on help hotlines to restricted access to filing instructions and forms, I have heard from dozens of you in the Fifth District on how these changes are inhibiting your ability to fulfill your tax filing requirements. Of great concern is the fact that these restrict
Sensenbrenner Reintroduces Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act
Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Wis.) today reintroduced the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA), which provides for a robust response to the twin epidemics of opioid and heroin addiction that includes prevention, law enforcement strategies and the expansion of evidence-based treatment. CARA is the first piece of legislation introduced as part of Congressman Sensenbrenner’s over-criminalization package. Original cosponsors of CARA are Reps. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), Tom Marino (R-Pa.), Bobby Scott (D-Va.), David Joyce (R-Ohio), Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) and Steve Chabot (R-Ohio). Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner: “Too many Americans are falling into the addiction trap. It must be addressed effectively and expeditiously. With this legislation, we have an opportunity to build on proven methods that enable law enforcement to respond to this epidemic and support long-term recovery.” Congressman Tim Ryan: “As Co-Chair of the Congressional Addiction, Treatment and Recovery Caucu
