Castor calls for investigation of 9/11 Sarasota connection


Tampa Congresswoman Kathy Castor Monday called on the House Intelligence Committee to investigate why the FBI did not disclose to Congress information it learned about a Saudi couple living in southwest Florida with ties to the 9/11 hijackers. The Saudis came to the FBI’s attention after neighbors reported they’d suddenly fled their home near Sarasota two weeks before the 2001 terrorist attacks. “One of the great criticisms of the pre-9/11 intelligence operations,” Castor wrote in her letter to the committee’s two senior members, “was the lack of ...

Kathy Castor blasts GOP plan to cut hurricane hunters


For several weeks now, Tampa area Democratic Congresswoman Kathy Castor has been ripping into a proposal by House Republicans that would cut funding by 40 percent for so-called "hurricane hunters' - military plans that fly into hurricanes in order to measure and track them. The issue has grown in resonance after Hurricane Irene churned up significant damage in the Northeast. Concurrently, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was saying even before the storm hit that Congress would need to make commensurate budget cuts to pay for FEMA funding for hurricane cleanup. That statement has been met ...

U.S. Rep. Castor's statement for Immigrant Rights Day 05/01/2017
Today on May 1, Immigrant Rights Day, U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) released statistics demonstrating the economic contributions of immigrants to the Tampa Bay region. “In Tampa Bay, we value our diversity -- our history and economic successes are built on the contributions of immigrants. Our community and the state of Florida are dependent on a talented and diverse workforce,” U.S. Rep. Castor said. “Neighbors, businesses, churches and law enforcement officials throughout the region have been united with me in calling for comprehensive immigration reform, supporting our Dream Act students, and most recently, opposing the travel ban targeting Muslims and refugees. Today on Immigrant Rights Day, let's come together in opposition to President Trump’s attacks on immigrants and immigrant communities. I will be joined by my Democratic colleagues in both the U.S. House and U.S. Senate on the front Capitol steps tonight to rally in support of America’s immigrants.” Immigra
Republicans should abandon AHCA, work with Dems to improve ACA
The U.S. Senate should scrap the outrageous American Health Care Act (AHCA) bill passed by the House and work with Democrats and anyone who cares about keeping their neighbors' healthcare coverage under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and expanding that coverage.  I urge my colleagues to start by promoting competition in exchanges in areas of the country that need it and tackling the skyrocketing costs of drugs. These actions and cooperation could strengthen the ACA and expand healthcare coverage and the economic well-being of American families, instead of the drastic cuts in coverage under the AHCA that will turn back the clock and leave millions of our neighbors to fend for themselves and their families.  Why? The AHCA rips coverage away from at least 24 million Americans, raises costs, imposes a huge Age Tax, steals from Medicare and socks it to Alzheimer’s patients, children with complex conditions and people with disabilities who rely on Medicaid. Contrary to the promi
U.S. Rep. Castor's Statement on Congress and Pres. Trump's First 100 Days
This morning, U.S. Rep. Castor (FL14) blasted Congressional Republicans and President Trump for their failure to address the challenges of American families, as Republicans offered a one-week government funding bill right before Trump's hundred day mark. “The American people deserve better. The Republican majority is not serving the interests of the families we represent. They are not focused on lifting the economic prospects of our small businesses and hardworking families. They are not focused on lifting wages,” said U.S. Rep. Castor. “Instead, we are debating a small extension to keep the federal government open.” As it stands, Congress has until midnight tonight to pass a spending bill or the government will run out of money and shut down.

U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor's statement regarding the firing of FBI Director
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) released the following statement about the firing today of FBI Director James Comey: "President Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey is a blatant attempt to stall the FBI's ongoing investigation of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. It is also part of a disturbing trend -- first, former acting Attorney General Sally Yates is fired by Trump after informing the White House of deep concerns about Trump's national security adviser, Michael Flynn, and his activities with Russia. Now, Comey is fired by Trump a week after testifying that the FBI is conducting its investigation.  "Trump may well be trying to distract the American people from the very troubling conflicts of interest, and those connections between Trump's former national security adviser and Russia that were known about for some 18 days before Trump reluctantly fired Flynn. It is past time for an independent, bipartisan investigation.  Trump may want to
