Jobless share stories to urge benefits extension

Don Grenke needs a job before his last $500 in the bank runs out. He's worked since he was 16 — doing everything from pumping gas to manual labor. But now Grenke, 56, of Ferndale, is worried his unemployment insurance soon will run out and he and his wife, who does not work, will be left with nothing. "I feel dejected, like somebody is stepping on my back," Grenke said after a forum Tuesday at the Southfield Public Library. The event was sponsored by Rep. Sander Levin, D-Royal Oak, to highlight what supporters say is the need to extend federal unemployment benefits. "I worked for 16 ...

Congress has never failed to renew thePrograms with the unemployment rate close to where it is today -- 9 percent. "I am by nomeans unintelligent. I am ...

Levin to Oppose Colombia Trade Deal

Representative Sander Levin, the top Democrat on the House Ways and Means Committee, said he would oppose a trade agreement with Colombia because provisions on labor rights won’t be included in the legislation. Levin said that the administration of President Barack Obama acquiesced to demands from Republicans not to mention a negotiated action plan on workers’ rights in legislation that is required to adopt the Colombia agreement. “Republicans have rejected reference to the Action Plan in the implementing bill,” Levin, of Michigan, said today at a news conference in ...

Levin Statement on Death of Liu Xiaobo
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (MI-09) today released the following statement on reports of the death of Nobel Peace Prize winner and Chinese democracy activist Liu Xiaobo “As a former Co-Chair of the Congressional-Executive Commission on China which repeatedly advocated for Liu’s release, I mourn the passing of an incomparably courageous advocate who dedicated his life to advancing basic human rights.  “The Chinese writer, Nobel Peace Prize recipient, and democracy advocate Liu Xiaobo was an inspirations to millions of people around the globe.  History will remember Liu as a giant who sought to advance the debate on democratic governance, human rights, and rule of law in China, and for the way Chinese authorities mistreated him and other human rights advocates.  “For the last decade of his life, Liu was imprisoned by Chinese authorities, often in secret locations, on trumped-up charges of inciting subversion of state power for his thoughtful advocacy for reform, and
Levin Statement on NDAA
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (MI-09) today released the following statement on his vote against the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA): “This bill on defense spending, because of its size, will have a major impact on vital domestic programs, which remain subject to spending caps. This is particularly true since there is no overall budget for domestic programs other than President Trump’s plan, which would slash funding for medical research, Medicaid, job training, food assistance, and many other programs that help our communities and families. We will not be able to ensure the strength and safety of our country, as we must, while tearing down vital programs for American families.” ###
Levin Statement on 2017 Medicare Trustees Report
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (MI-09), Ranking Member of the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Health, today released the following statement on the 2017 Medicare Trustees Report: “The Medicare Trustees Report highlights the success of the Affordable Care Act in placing the Medicare program on sounder financial footing. It is also a stark reminder of the harmful consequences of Republican proposals to roll back this progress by raiding the Trust Fund to finance tax cuts for the wealthy, as voted on by my House colleagues. Moreover, the Trustees Report underscores the urgent need for Congress to act to rein in prescription drug costs, which contributed to an increase in Part D spending. Continued inaction by Congress and the Trump Administration to address this crisis threatens both the future of Medicare and the overall health security of the American people.”
Levin Statement on District Court Decision on Chaldean Case
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (MI-09), today released the following statement on the U.S. District Court’s opinion regarding the enforcement of orders of removal against Iraqi immigrants, many of whom are Chaldean: “I applaud the decision of the District Court to assert jurisdiction and provide an injunction against the deportation of Chaldeans and other Iraqi nationals because of the extraordinary danger that exists for them if they are sent to Iraq.  The decision rightfully notes that absent such an effort a basic right of our Constitution – a right to a day in court – would be violated. “This order will allow the court to learn all of the facts related to these individuals who were arrested for deportation after living in the U.S. for many years, and in some cases, decades.” ###
