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


In the 12 days since Ways and MeansDemocrats launched the eCall to Extend Unemployment Insurance -- a website devoted to gathering stories of the unemployed -- nearly 400 people have chronicled their experience looking for work. 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 ...

Levin Statement on Revised Executive Order on Refugees
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (D-MI) today issued the following statement in response to the revised Executive Order on refugees: “President Trump's latest Executive Order continues to shut the door to refugees fleeing persecution, and it continues to enforce a de facto discrimination based on religion. This irresponsible Executive Order will harm national security by deterring Muslim allies from working with the United States and by providing a recruiting tool for terrorists. The United States should continue to serve as a beacon for those in desperate situations, and we can and must both fight terrorism and help those who seek to escape it.”  ###
Levin Statement: GOP Health Plan Will Raise Costs for Older Workers
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (D-MI) today responded to the Republican legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act. The bill was voted out of the Ways and Means Committee early Thursday morning:  “The Republican repeal bill will hit older workers with a double whammy. It will raise their health insurance premiums at the same time it reduces their tax credits to help pay for that insurance.  “This week, Republicans voted in the Ways and Means Committee to replace the current tax credit for health coverage with one that will provide less assistance for most moderate and middle income workers who are near the age of 60, according to an analysis by the Kaiser Family Foundation. At the same time, Republicans in the Energy and Commerce Committee voted on a bill that would allow insurance companies to jack up insurance premiums for older workers.  “This is a toxic combination for older workers needing affordable health care.” ###
Levin Amendment Offered in Ways and Means Markup: Require CBO Score on ACA Repeal Bill
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (D-MI) today offered an amendment at the Ways and Means Committee markup that calls for any Affordable Care Act repeal legislation to have a public score from the Congressional Budget Office available seven days prior to committee consideration. “In 2009, when Democrats brought health reform legislation through this Committee, we posted draft legislative language one month in advance. We held a hearing specifically on that draft, in addition to holding six other health hearings that year. One of those hearings was to hear from the Secretary of HHS,” said Rep. Levin. “Republicans complained bitterly that it was not enough.  But now you bring forth legislation that doesn’t meet any of the criteria that Democrats met.” Republicans would not agree to the transparency measure, designed to ensure both Members and the public can fully understand the impact of the repeal legislation. The amendment was ruled out of order. A pdf of the amendment
Levin Statement on CBO Score of GOP Health Care Bill
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (D-MI),  Ranking Member of the Ways and Means Health Subcommittee today responded to analysis conducted by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) on the Republican legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Rep. Levin was the Chair of the Ways and Means Committee when the ACA was signed into law:  “This report demonstrates that 24 million Americans would lose their health coverage by 2026 and the bill would substantially raise insurance premiums for older workers. "Confirming other analyses, the CBO report shows in a clear, shocking way the Republican plan jeopardizes for the American people insurance vital for their health, and often their lives. “Rushing to vote before the full consequences were understood, Republicans can’t hide any longer from the reality of their plan. It unmasks President Trump’s promise to provide insurance for everybody that will be much less expensive. “All of this pain comes as the Republ
