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, ...

Supporting Business Through Tax Reform
All Wisconsin business owners know that tax rates are often a significant factor when making important business decisions, such as whether to invest in new equipment, increase staff, or expand facilities. Most businesses in Wisconsin and the United States, including proprietorships, partnerships, limited liability companies, and subchapter S corporations, are organized as pass-through entities, meaning they are not subject to income tax. Rather, owners are directly taxed individually on income, taking into account their share of profits and losses.  Given this, most business owners are highly sensitive to their marginal tax rate, which currently tops out at 40 percent. And it’s not just the tax rate, but also the complexity of the federal tax code which can be a hindrance to the business community and make owners think twice about growing, updating, or expanding. With a newly united government, I’m optimistic that comprehensive tax reform can finally be achieved in th
Sensenbrenner: Reducing dependent care costs gives families a hand
On average, Wisconsin parents pay more than $9,000 each year for child care. That is nearly as much as one year of in-state tuition at the University of Wisconsin — Madison. As Wisconsin families know, our state ranks among the most expensive for child care. In fact, only nine states have greater child care costs in the United States. We must ease the heavy burden these high costs are placing on the shoulders of hard-working families. Wisconsin has more licensing requirements and regulations than other states, which drives up costs for care providers. Providers then pass on those increased costs to consumers. Consider the average annual cost of child care in Wisconsin — nearly $12,000 in a child care center. The median income for a married couple in Wisconsin is roughly $82,000, meaning child care consumes more than 11% of their annual earnings. The median income for a single mother-led family is roughly $23,000, so child care consumes nearly 39% of her annual earni
For the Second Consecutive Year, Congressman Sensenbrenner Earns Perfect Voting Record
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Each year, CQ releases a comprehensive vote study featuring the records of each Member of Congress. For the second year in a row, Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner obtained a perfect voting record of 100 percent by not missing a single vote. Only 15 out of the 435 Members in the House of Representatives achieved this rating. Congressman Sensenbrenner: “Serving the citizens of Wisconsin’s Fifth Congressional District is a responsibility that I have never taken lightly. Each year, I host more than 100 public events, such as town hall meetings and office hours, and respond to thousands of constituent comments submitted by phone, mail, and email. These avenues of open communication make it possible for me to thoughtfully perform my essential duty of voting on the House floor on behalf of my constituents, and I’m extremely proud of my consistent voting record. I’m humbled to serve as Wisconsin’s Fifth District representative, and I will continue working diligen
Rolling Back Regulations
Regulations are important for the protection of Americans’ health, safety, and well-being, but over the last eight years, they have grown beyond those purposes. The Obama administration issued more than 3,000 new regulations at a whopping cost of $875 billion to the American taxpayer. Rather than helping Americans, overregulation has stifled innovation, stalled economic growth, and cost taxpayers billions of dollars in lost income.  In fact, in 2015, regulations cost nearly $2 trillion in lost productivity and growth, and unfortunately, the financial burdens are only part of our overregulation problem. Few old regulations are ever lifted and new regulations have been added at an alarming rate under the previous Administration.  For a successful, functioning economy, we need a regulatory system that works with and on behalf of the people, not the government. It should be collaborative, not combative, and encourage competition rather than picking winners and losers
