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 ...

Lawmakers Highlight Japan’s Closed Markets in Advance of Prime Minister Abe’s Visit
WASHINGTON, D.C. – In advance of President Trump’s meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Friday, Reps. Sander Levin (D-MI), Marcy Kaptur (D-OH), and Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ) detailed the long-standing economic barriers put in place by Japan to block U.S. exports. Rep. Pascrell is the Ranking Member of the Ways and Means Trade Subcommittee.  Rep. Kaptur is co-chair of the House Auto Caucus.  She and Mr. Levin traveled to Japan in the mid-1980s to highlight the problems with U.S.-Japan trade. “Japan’s unfair trade practices have resulted in a massive trade imbalance that have hurt American workers and businesses for decades,” said Levin, Kaptur and Pascrell.  “The U.S. must make it clear that any discussions of a bi-lateral agreement would address currency manipulation, eliminate all of the non-tariff barriers, include provisions to prevent new barriers, and link any U.S. tariff reduction to demonstrable opening of the Japanese market.” You can read a PDF
Levin Statement Opposing DeVos Nomination
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (D-MI) today issued the following statement in opposition to the nomination of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education: “The Secretary of Education should be a champion of public education, not a leading proponent of undermining it. In Michigan, Betsy DeVos advocated for lower standards for charter schools than other taxpayer funded schools, as well as for diverting public funds to private schools. We need an experienced and knowledgeable administrator for our educational system, but DeVos’ comments at her confirmation hearing demonstrated a lack of familiarity with a number of key issues, including special education laws that go back to my days in the State Senate. “I am opposed to her nomination, and I encourage all in the Senate to vote against confirmation.” ###
Republicans Hiding the Truth on Health Care
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Responding to various recent comments on health care by GOP leaders, Rep. Sander Levin (D-MI), Ranking Member on the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Health, today said: “Republicans hope their misstatements, exaggerations and outright lies about health care will hide the truth.  But the facts are plain to see – Republican efforts to repeal the health reform law would result in millions of Americans losing their health coverage and millions more being forced to pay higher premiums.  No amount of twisting the facts can reconcile this reality with their rhetoric.” Recent examples of GOP statements that hide the truth on health care include:  RHETORIC: Speaker Ryan says the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is in “the middle of a collapse.” REALITY:  Really, it’s the GOP rationale for repeal that continues to collapse (even among Republicans). Thanks to the ACA, the number of uninsured Americans is at an all-time low. Multiple plan options are available for 82%

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressional Ukrainian Caucus Co-Chairs, Reps. Andy Harris (R-MD), Marcy Kaptur (D-OH), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), and Sander Levin (D-MI), today issued the following statement on the escalation of violence in Eastern Ukraine: “We call on Russia-controlled separatists to immediately stop the violence in Eastern Ukraine, honor the ceasefire, and withdraw heavy weapons. We reaffirm our support for the Minsk accords, and stand in strong opposition to all efforts that would encourage military action against Ukraine. “As Co-Chairs of the Congressional Ukrainian Caucus we are deeply concerned with loss of life, and the deteriorating humanitarian condition in Avdiivka, in eastern Ukraine, since heavy fighting broke out on January 28th. According to Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), at least eight people have died in the last three days, and 17,000 civilians, including 2,500 children, do not have access to water, electricity, or heat in below
