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 ...

Ranking Members Levin and Wyden Press WTO to End Criticism of Trade Remedy and Food Safety Measures
WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Ways and Means Committee Ranking Member Sander Levin (D-MI) and Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden (D-OR) today sent a letter to World Trade Organization (WTO) Director-General Roberto Azevêdo, criticizing the WTO Secretariat’s stance on measures it views as protectionist, and urging the office to better support the rules-based global trading system. “We are deeply disappointed that the Secretariat of the WTO has once again issued a report that expresses concern not with dumping, not with trade-distorting subsidies, and not with unsafe imported foods, but instead expresses concern with measures taken to address those very real problems,” wrote Ranking Members Levin and Wyden. “The WTO Secretariat appears to view its role as facilitating more and more trade or to supporting trade for its own sake. But, for the WTO to continue to play the central role it needs to play in the world trading system, it needs to focus on ensuring the quality

WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) and Ranking Member Sander Levin (D-MI), and Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI) and Ranking Member Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) issued the following statement after the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) announcement regarding the implementation of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA).

By providing flexibility for doctors and other health care providers, we are helping ensure this historic law delivers the quality, value-based care Medicare beneficiaries deserve. We’re committed to continuing our work with each other, stakeholders, and the Administration so that doctors can prioritize patient care instead
Ranking Member Levin Opening Statement at Markup of Health Legislation
(Remarks as prepared) “Mr. Chairman, more than 640,000 Americans today are living with kidney failure, otherwise known as end-stage renal disease, and more than 80 percent of them are covered through Medicare. “The first bill we are marking up this morning – H.R. 5942 – would establish a new facility-based ESRD demonstration program within Medicare. This demonstration would help make sure that patients receiving dialysis are receiving the high-quality, integrated, and coordinated care that they need by a team of physicians and other health care providers. And since this demonstration program would be within Medicare, it would require this team to provide their dialysis patients with all the benefits entitled under Medicare. I commend Mr. Blumenauer for his work on this legislation. “Unfortunately, the second bill we are considering under the guise of improving the ACA – H.R. 954 – is actually another attempt by Republicans to undermine the coverage goals of the Affordable
