Simpson Joins Bipartisan Vote to Repeal Withholding Tax


Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson today lauded passage of legislation to repeal a 3% withholding on government contractors. H.R. 674 passed the House by a strong bipartisan vote of 405-16. Simpson has been a cosponsor of this legislation since 2008. “Democrats and Republicans alike recognize that allowing this provision of law to go into effect would increase costs for state and local governments and adversely impact small businesses,” said Simpson. “Idaho businesses, universities, and communities have all contacted me with their concern about the 3% withholding tax, and ...


Simpson,a Probl.-Solver on Envir. Issues, Remains EPA Critic


Over the door to Rep. Mike Simpson's office, next to the mounted head of an elk his father shot, hangs a quote by 19th century statesman Henry Clay, whose negotiations delayed the start of the Civil War. "Politics is not about ideological purity or moral self-righteousness, it's about governing," it reads. "If you cannot compromise you cannot govern." Simpson (R-Idaho) has earned his own reputation on Capitol Hill and with constituent groups as a legislator who will work with sometime opponents and Democrats to craft legislation -- a quality that is in short supply in today's political ...


Rep. Mike Simpson on a fundraising roll


Congressman Mike Simpson is looking very, very good in red. In January, the Idaho Falls Republican donned the robes of a “cardinal” — Capitol Hill shorthand for the 12 House Appropriations subcommittee chairmen. The crimson outfit has done wonders for his campaign bank account. Through the first nine months of the two-year election cycle, Simpson raised about $401,000, more than twice the $183,000 he raised in the same period in 2009. Since 2003, when quarterly reporting started, Simpson had averaged $164,000 for the first nine months. “It’s always easier to ...

SIMPSON ISSUES STATEMENT ON EXECUTIVE ORDER ON ADMISSIONS TO THE U.S.
 Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson the following statement on President Trump’s executive order on admissions to the United States: “The President is fulfilling his duty and promise to evaluate the screening process for those attempting to enter our country to ensure that these individuals are indeed safe and pose no threat to us.  However, the Administration could have and should have disseminated the details and enforcement guidelines of the Executive Order in a more effective manner to minimize the unintended consequences of this change in policy.  I am glad to see that the Administration has already taken steps to clarify these guidelines, and I hope all other errors in implementation of this order will be immediately addressed.”
Simpson Supports the Second Amendment Rights of Social Security Beneficiaries
Washington, D.C. - Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson supported H.J.Res. 40, a resolution disapproving an 11th hour Obama Administration rule requiring the Social Security Administration (SSA) to submit the names of certain beneficiaries to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, denying them of their Second Amendment rights. On December 19, 2016, the SSA published the final rule for the criteria to report certain Social Security recipients to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).  This database is used to prevent the sale of firearms to individuals that have committed felonies, are drug addicts, fugitives and illegal immigrants.  This rule restricts Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Income benefit recipients that have been deemed incompetent to handle their own affairs from owning firearms.  “This is another example of the Obama Administration forcing policy that is not supported by the American people,” said
Simpson Supports First Step to Repeal Obamacare
Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson supported passage of the fiscal year 2017 budget resolution which was approved by the House of Representatives on Friday. This is the most significant Obamacare repeal legislation to pass the House since the law was enacted six years ago. Passage of the resolution unlocks a legislative mechanism known as “reconciliation” which provides Congress with the ability to repeal and ultimately replace Obamacare. “It is no secret that Obamacare has not lived up to the promises made six years ago,” said Congressman Simpson. “Obamacare has led to higher premiums, higher deductibles, and fewer choices – and this is before the most egregious tax hikes have gone into effect. I hear from Idahoans daily about the struggles associated with this law, and today’s legislation represents an important step in replacing Obamacare with real healthcare reform that puts decisions back into the hands of families, patients, and doctors.” The resolution was agreed
Simpson Votes to Reform the Federal Regulatory Process
Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson voted for two pieces of regulatory reform legislation to prevent regulatory overreach by the Obama administration during its final days and to return accountability and transparency to the federal regulatory process. The total cost of regulations imposed by federal agencies is estimated at $1.88 trillion annually. “Each year, federal agencies issue regulations without considering both their cost and benefits,” said Simpson. “Congress needs to reestablish its authority to oversee these rules in order to reduce the burden on all businesses and stimulate real economic growth.” As a first step, on Wednesday, Simpson voted in favor of H.R. 21, the Midnight Rules Relief Act of 2017, which passed in the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 238-184.  “Throughout his term in office, President Obama has disregarded the economic impact of his regulatory actions on the American people,” said Simpson.  “We do not intend to allow thi
