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 Trump Administration’s Proposed Tax Cuts
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (MI-09) today released the following statement in response the tax cuts proposed by the Trump Administration: “Today’s announcement by the Trump Administration is not a tax reform plan.  It is warmed over supply-side economics, which the first President Bush called 'voodoo economics.' This is deja voodoo economics – cutting taxes mostly for the very wealthy and large corporations with a blind and disproven faith that those tax cuts will pay for themselves.  “Treasury Secretary Mnuchin’s assertion that the plan will pay for itself with growth is both foolish and reckless. It defies history as well as the advice of the Joint Committee on Taxation and other experts. Following this path would massively increase our deficits – hurting our long-term economic growth, while also forcing cuts to Medicare and other critical programs.  “Providing huge tax cuts to the wealthy, led by President Trump, while seeming to provide relative crumbs t
Senator Baldwin and Representative Levin Reintroduce Tax Reform to Close Carried Interest Loophole, Urge President Trump to Keep His Promise
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and Representative Sander Levin (D-MI) today reintroduced tax reform legislation to close the carried interest loophole. Last week, President Trump released a one-page tax reform outline full of tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans that did not include any reference to closing the carried interest loophole, and media reports have suggested that his plan may in fact lead to an even lower tax rate for fund managers. As a candidate, Trump said “As part of this reform, we will eliminate the carried interest deduction and other special interest loopholes that have been so good for Wall Street investors, and for people like me, but unfair to American workers.” The Carried Interest Fairness Act, which would end the tax loophole, has received broad bipartisan support from government officials, economists, investors and hedge fund managers. “If President Trump is in fact serious about closing the carried interest tax loophole for h
Levin Statement on Passage of American Health Care Act
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (MI-09) today released the following statement in response to the House vote to pass legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act, the American Health Care Act [H.R. 1628]: “Today, House Republicans turned their backs on the health needs of millions and millions of Americans. Their rigid ideology has blinded them to what matters most for the families of America – insurance for good health. This will not be the decisive step. Millions of Americans have already risen up, told us their stories – and more will now in still larger numbers. “Over $1 trillion would be taken from Medicare, Medicaid and premium assistance for Americans purchasing health insurance to provide a trillion dollars in tax breaks primarily for insurance companies and other corporations and for some of the very richest Americans.  “The Republican bill also guts key protections for Americans with serious health conditions, including protections for those with preexisti
Levin Statement on Landmine Explosion in Eastern Ukraine
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (MI-09) today released the following statement in response to the landmine explosion in eastern Ukraine Sunday that killed an American observer: “My thoughts are with the family of the American observer of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), who was killed by a landmine explosion in Pryshyb, an area controlled by Russia-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine on Sunday. This incident underscores the need to immediately implement the Minsk Agreement, including ensuring the safety of international observers in areas controlled by Russia-backed separatists. I call on Russian authorities to fully cooperate with the OSCE in conducting a thorough investigation, and in holding the perpetrators accountable.  “The people of Ukraine have shown time and again their will for a free and democratic nation. I urge the Trump Administration to express unequivocal support for the people of Ukraine, and stand shoulder to shoulder with
