Garamendi urges Senate to pass home lending reform

Few places in the country have been harder hit by the housing crisis than western Contra Costa County. That is where Congressman John Garamendi, D-Walnut Creek, was Tuesday, urging the Senate to pass comprehensive home lending reform. Carmela and Troy Hess worry they will lose their Concord home unless they can reach an agreement with the bank to keep it. Troy is a disabled firefighter and paramedic injured rescuing people from a burning building in Oakland in 2004. "I blew out my right knee, my right hip, and my lower back," said Troy. "And that was pretty much the end of my ...

Congressman John Garamendi Statement on Passage of Republican Tax Scam Bill
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman John Garamendi (D-Fairfield, Davis, Yuba City, CA) issued the following statement following the passage of the GOP tax scam bill: “Under this bill, fat cats win and you lose. Half of the money from this $1.5 trillion tax scam go to America’s richest one percent. Meanwhile, taxes on the middle class will go up. Over 18,000 people in my district will no longer be able to deduct their medical costs. 128,000 of my constituents will be barred from deducting their state and local taxes. Graduates will be barred from deducting the interest on their student loans. And all of it is being done to allow multimillionaires, major corporations, and the Trump family to get a massive tax break. “But it’s even worse than that. This tax scam will blow a massive hole in our deficit and trigger the automatic spending reductions mandated by the Budget Control Act. Because of this bill, we will be forced to cut $136 billion from programs such as Social Securit
Garamendi, colleague tackle student loan debt
“For many Americans, the price of a college education is too high,” Garamendi said. “The average 2016 graduate owes over $37,172 in student loan debt. This mountain of debt prevents graduates from reaching important milestones such as starting a family, buying a house or opening their own business. “This bill would help relieve some of the debt burden faced by American students and their families, while ensuring that the federal government is not making a profit on the backs of students.” The legislation is endorsed by many professional associations, including the American Association of Orthodontists, Academy of General Dentistry and the California Society of Anesthesiologists.

Congressman John Garamendi Statement on Passage of FY2018 NDAA Conference Report
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman John Garamendi, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, issued the following statement regarding House passage of the National Defense Authorization Act Conference Report for Fiscal Year 2018: “As a member of the House Armed Services Committee, I’m proud that our legislative process works the way it should: both parties work together in both the House and the Senate to produce bipartisan annual legislation. This bill does some good things. I’m happy that it gives our servicemembers a 2.4% pay raise. Thanks to Ranking Member Adam Smith, it includes a comprehensive set of measures to deter Russia’s attempts to undermine our strategic interests. It recognizes the threat of climate change, and does not discriminate against any current qualified and able-bodied servicemember, or any individual who wishes to serve. It begins the process of building an icebreaker fleet, which is vital to protecting American interests in the Arctic. It also
GOP Declares War on Students
Tax reform continues to be the topic of the day, as the U.S. Senate passed its version Friday of President Trump’s tax scam for the wealthy. This bill is even worse than the version passed earlier by the House of Representatives: In addition to raising taxes on many ordinary Californians just to give massive piles of cash to corporations and the super-wealthy, it also would repeal portions of the Affordable Care Act that are specifically designed to stabilize markets and keep premiums low. This will result in sharp premium increases across the nation. In last month’s column, I described just how Californians would be hurt. The House bill eliminates many key deductions on which Californians rely, including the medical deduction, most state and local income-tax deductions and the mortgage-interest deduction. Meanwhile, it would permanently enshrine steep corporate tax reductions, and eliminate the estate tax, which is paid by only the wealthiest 5,400 filers across the country in any
