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 to ICE: Ensure Review Process for Chaldean American Detainees
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (MI-09) today sent a letter to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Acting Director Thomas D. Homan expressing strong concerns over the review process for Iraqi American detainees, which should determine whether they need to be held in continued detention as they await a determination of their status. ICE has attempted to deport these individuals, but has been blocked by the courts.  “Given these statutory and internal safeguards put in place, I am deeply troubled that few, if any of the Chaldean Iraqi detainees in ICE custody since June, appear to have received meaningful review of their continued post-order custody detention.  This is so in spite of the fact that many have lived in the Detroit-metro area for decades, have U.S. born children, family members, and gainful employment.  Some have been checking in with ICE for decades.  As such, the vast majority of this population does not appear to be either a danger to their community or
Levin Statement on GOP Tax Reform Framework
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (MI-09) today released the following response to the Republican tax reform framework released today: “While critical details have been left out, the general trajectory of the Republican tax plan is clear – too much help for the wealthy and an enormous deficit tax for everyone else.   “The GOP scheme will attempt to hide this impact through misleading rhetoric and so-called dynamic scoring, but basic math will eventually tell the full story. For example, cutting the top income tax rate would only benefit about one in every 100 households, with millionaires getting a big break. Providing a lower top tax rate for “pass through” business income will also focus the vast majority of its benefits on those with incomes over $1 million. And eliminating the tax on multimillion-dollar estates only applies to richest 0.2% of all estates.   “This is not a proposal focused on helping the middle class, especially since those same ordinary Americ
Ranking Member Levin Opening Statement at Committee Markup of IPAB Repeal
(Remarks as delivered) This proposal relates to a board that is not expected to come into operation, at the earliest, until 2022. There’s no pay-for in this bill – and the estimate is that it would essentially require us to come up with $17.5 billion. So I want to talk, if I might on behalf of us all on Democratic side, about your reference to bipartisanship. We need bipartisanship right now on something that is right in front of us, not years away. And so far there has been no willingness on the part of the Republicans to do that. Mr. Chairman, we sent you a letter nearly a month ago asking that we sit down and talk about necessary actions relating to individual health insurance market stabilization. And I think if we work together, we can find ways to do that. So far, we haven’t received a response to that request, even as Senate Republican and Democrats have been moving actively in this effort. So Mr. Chairman, I really urge you on behalf of all of us – not only Democrats o
New TIGTA Report Again Confirms No Political Motivation in IRS “Scandal”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – A report today released by the U.S. Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) validates information uncovered by Rep. Levin and Ways and Means Democrats in 2013 that there was no political motivation in the IRS’s processing of tax-exempt applications. Republicans completely politicized an investigation into this issue. They claimed a May 2013 TIGTA report, which it’s now shown was wholly incomplete, to supported their allegations that the IRS Tax-Exempt and Government Entities Division, then led by Lois Lerner, targeted Tea Party and other conservative groups for heightened scrutiny based solely on their political views.  “In 2013, I asked Treasury Inspector General Russell George at a hearing ‘Did you find any evidence of political motivation in the selection of the tax exemption applications?’ he replied ‘We did not sir,’” said Rep. Levin. “This TIGTA report amplifies that point by clearly demonstrating that liberal groups were
