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 ...

Rep. Sandy Levin: Share Your Unemployment Story

Their sobering stories offer a glimpse into the lives of the 14 million unemployed Americans and illustrate in no uncertain terms the urgent need for Congress to preserve federal unemployment insurance through 2012. 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 ...

Ukrainian Caucus Co-Chairs Introduce Resolution Commemorating 85th Anniversary of Holodomor Famine-Genocide
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressional Ukrainian Caucus Co-Chairs, Reps. Sander Levin (D-MI), Andy Harris (R-MD), Marcy Kaptur (D-OH), and Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), today introduced a resolution commemorating the 85th Anniversary of the Holodomor Famine-Genocide. The resolution honors the estimated seven to 10 million Ukrainian people who perished at the will of the totalitarian Stalinist government of the former Soviet Union, which perpetrated a premeditated famine in the winter of 1932-1933 in Ukraine in a concerted effort to break the nation's resistance to communist occupation.  “We must solemnly remember the millions of Ukrainians who lost their lives in the Holodomor Famine-Genocide and shine a spotlight on the truth. This monument represents our hopes, our shared values, and the humanity that binds us,” the Members said. The full text of the resolution can be found here. The Holodomor Famine-Genocide Memorial opened in Washington, D.C. in 2015, with the support of the bipartisa
Levin: Expert Testifies that GOP Bill Will Increase Taxes for Middle Class
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (D-MI) today released the following statement after questioning the head of the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) on the Ryan-McConnell Republican Tax Plan during the Committee on Ways and Means consideration of the bill: “Congress’ own non-partisan scorekeeper told us today that 38 million Americans who make between $20,000 and $40,000 in yearly income will see a net tax increase in 2023 under the GOP bill. He also conceded that families in other income groups, including those who earn between $50,000 and $100,000, may also see tax increases depending on their current deductions. “At the same time the Republican bill is raising taxes on middle-income Americans, it provides a huge tax break to the very wealthy. JCT projects that in 2027, those earning $1 million or more a year will receive an aggregate tax cut of $36.6 billion – meaning that each of these very higher earners will receive, on average, a $58,000 tax cut.  “This sho
Republicans Refuse to Close Carried Interest Loophole
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (D-MI) today introduced an amendment to the Republican tax bill (H.R. 1) that would end the carried interest loophole. “This loophole is grossly unfair to regular Americans who provide services and pay taxes at regular individual rates, while wealthy fund managers servicing the investments of monies not their own can pay a lower rate. The President has promised time and again to repeal this loophole. If Republicans can’t step up to the plate on this, what loopholes are they willing to step up to the plate on?” said Rep. Levin. “On Monday, Chairman Brady offered an amendment at the last minute that was a fig leaf that instead of closing the loophole would validate it." Rep. Levin’s amendment was defeated in Committee by a vote of 16-24.  ###
Levin: New JCT Data Shows Many in Middle Class Get Hit with Higher Taxes Under GOP Bill
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (D-MI) today highlighted information from the Joint Committee on Taxation that shows large numbers of middle-income taxpayers being required to pay higher taxes under the Republican tax bill, especially in future years: “The data is clear – the Republican bill will raise taxes on millions of middle-class Americans.  According to new information from Congress’ official scorekeeper one out of every five taxpayers with incomes between $75,000 and $100,000 will be hit with a tax increase of more than $500 in 2023 under the Republican tax bill.  And at least some Americans in every other income group will also see significant tax increases, including one out of seven of those with income between $50,000 and $75,000.” The table referenced by Rep. Levin is available here. Rep. Levin made similar remarks during the debate of the Blumenauer Amendment, which can be viewed here and by clicking below. ###
