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.

Reps. Hunter and Garamendi Raise Concerns Over the Trump Administration’s Decision to Waive the Jones Act
WASHINGTON, DC –Today, Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-CA) and John Garamendi (D-CA), Chairman and Ranking Member respectively of the Subcommittee on the Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation, raised concerns over the Trump Administration’s decision to issue a 10-day waiver of the Jones Act to allegedly improve the flow of relief shipments into Puerto Rico. The Jones Act requires that goods traveling between U.S. ports of call be carried on U.S.-made and U.S.-flagged ships and manned by American crews.  Contrary to many published reports, adequate domestic shipping capability exists, and waiving the Jones Act requirement will not speed up relief for Puerto Rico. “Shipping carriers that comply with the Jones Act have more than enough capacity for a robust relief effort for Puerto Rico,” said Ranking Member Garamendi. “Getting relief to the island isn’t the problem. The challenge is in getting relief off the docks. Right now, 6,000 containers full of everything the island nee
Rep. Garamendi's Statement on Las Vegas Shooting
WASHINGTON, DC –Today, Congressman John Garamendi (D-Davis, Fairfield, Yuba City) issued the following statement in response to the mass shooting in Las Vegas: “My heart grieves for the victims of Sunday night’s horrible mass shooting in Las Vegas, and I’m thankful for the bravery of law enforcement and first responders who put their lives on the line to keep people safe. I’m a rancher and gun owner, and I value the Second Amendment, but there is no place for the sound of automatic weapons fire on our streets. I do not believe that massacres such as what happened last night should be the price we pay for our constitutional freedoms. I believe that Congress can and should take actions to make Americans safer, and this debate is long past due.”  
Trump’s true motive is to cut taxes on the wealthy
This month, Republicans in Congress once again found themselves unable to muster the votes to repeal the Affordable Care Act. The bill they were trying to push for their final last-ditch effort — the so-called Graham-Cassidy bill — would have been even more devastating than previous versions. But a handful of key senators signaled their opposition, preventing the majority from passing a repeal bill before the crucial Sept. 30 legislative deadline. All of the bills Republicans tried to pass to repeal the Affordable Care Act would have harmed the poor and the middle class, and cut billions of dollars in taxes for billionaires like President Trump and his cabinet secretaries. Now that these efforts have stalled, President Trump and his allies in Congress are pivoting to tax reform — where they once again will attempt to harm the poor and the middle class, and cut billions of dollars in taxes for people like Trump and his cabinet secretaries. Maybe you’re noticing a pattern here. B
Rep. Garamendi Celebrates National Manufacturing Day
DAVIS, CA – Today, Congressman John Garamendi (D-Davis, Fairfield, Yuba City) issued the following statement to commemorate National Manufacturing Day: “Today, on National Manufacturing Day, we celebrate the sector that built America into a country of ingenuity and promise. Manufacturing accounts for over $278 billion in economic output for California, and estimates show that every dollar invested in manufacturing produces $3.60 in economic benefits. Investing in a robust manufacturing sector spurs economic growth, expands middle class wages, creates job opportunities, and inspires a new generation of high-skilled manufacturing workers ready to take on the challenges of tomorrow. “Sadly, over the past three decades we’ve witnessed an unprecedented divestment in America’s manufacturing economy—and the effects are troubling. Middle class wages have stagnated, and we’ve relied more on foreign investment in manufacturing and infrastructure than ever before. One can look at
