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 President Trump’s Decision to End DACA
WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Sander Levin (MI-09) today issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program within six months: “President Trump’s decision is reprehensible. “Instead of taking the lead and pledging to work with Congress to make sure that 800,000 young people can live out their dreams in the only nation they have really known, the President puts forth the whip of deportation. “Congress must now work together and act because this not what America stands for, not only for 800,000 dreamers, but for all of us in America as each of us lives out our own dreams, as did those who came before us.” ###
Levin Statement on President Trump’s Tax Speech
ROSEVILLE, MI – Rep. Sander Levin (MI-09) today released the following statement in response to President Trump’s speech on tax reform: “The President was long on rhetoric, and most often strikingly short on detail. He was painfully vague in his discussion about middle-class tax-relief. Contrary to his rhetoric, his plan would open the door to massive tax cuts for the very wealthy. Talk about closing loopholes without mentioning any of them is totally disingenuous. His calls for bipartisanship came at the same time there has not been a scintilla of bipartisanship so far in the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee. That must change right now.” ###
OIG Report: Drug Rebates Would Save Money Under Medicare Part B
WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Sander Levin (MI-09), Ways and Means Subcommittee on Health Ranking Member, today released the following report from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Inspector General (OIG) on Medicare Part B prescription drug prices. The report examined how much the Medicare Part B program could have saved if pharmaceutical manufacturers that raise drug prices faster than inflation had been required to pay a rebate for those price increases. The OIG found that Medicare could have saved up to $1.8 billion in 2015 alone, if this good-governance practice were put into law. “We constantly see reports and hear concerns from seniors about the continued rising costs of prescription drugs,” said Rep. Levin. “Congress should act to implement commonsense reforms to discourage drug manufacturers from imposing huge cost increases, and this report provides a first step toward that goal. It’s past time for Congress to act to lower the cost of prescriptio
Michigan Democrats Seek Vote to Prohibit Funds From Being Used for Trump's Travel Ban
WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Thursday, August 24, 2017, Representatives John Conyers, Jr., Sander Levin, Dan Kildee, Debbie Dingell, and Brenda Lawrence, filed an amendment to the Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies appropriations bill to prevent Federal funds from being used to implement key sections of President Trump’s travel ban. This includes the provisions known as the Muslim ban and the provisions that effectively shut down the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program. In addition to the amendment, the Members released the following joint statement: “In the wake of Charlottesville, Americans across the country must unite in opposition to discrimination and bigotry in all its forms.  Today, we ask House leadership to allow a vote on our amendment, so that Republicans and Democrats can stand together and finally put an end to President Trump’s Executive Order, that bans Muslims and refugees from the United States. This order fails the test of moral leadership, and it does n
