Scott Garrett backs Jobs Through Growth Act

U.S. Rep. Scott Garrett sat in the tasting room of a small winery last month in Warren County and explained to its operators why the president's jobs bill was all wrong. Garrett, R-Warren/Sussex, said the American Jobs Act rehashed failed policies that would result in more debt and fail to cut unemployment. At the time, the congressman did not reveal his plans for generating jobs in New Jersey, where unemployment has stuck around 9 percent for 16 months. Now, Garrett has voiced his support for a jobs bill he believes is a better fit for his district. The Jobs Through Growth Act focuses on ...

Garrett:Other Ethnicities Are Not As Straight-Forward

It's a little surprising this comment last week from Rep. Scott Garrett (R-N.J.) hasn't gotten more attention. Here's Philip Molnar of the Express-Times: [Local business leaderRichard C. Spanier] said the best people to do business with are those in the American Midwest because of their "straight-forward" attitude. "Other ethnicities are not that way," Garrett said. "They'll say yes to you constantly and then you'll realize they really didn't mean it." Garrett said after the meeting he meant people in other countries. The clarification doesn't really make this comment much less bizarre ...

Garrett to Yellen: has the Fed become politicized?
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Scott Garrett (NJ-05) today called on Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen to address concerns that sitting Federal Reserve governors are engaging in political activity as a follow-up to a widely covered (please see below) exchange they had at a September 28th House Financial Services Committee hearing. At the hearing, Garrett asked Chair Yellen whether she believes a conflict of interest would exist if it was discovered that a sitting governor was actively seeking a high-level Executive Branch position in a future administration. Chair Yellen testified that she was “not aware” such a scenario would constitute a conflict of interest, but that she would have to consult Federal Reserve counsel in order to provide Congress with a complete answer. This question was brought up in light of Fed Governor Lael Brainard’s vote at the latest Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting. Garrett cited revelations earlier this year that Federal Reserve Governor
Garrett Statement on Ruling that CFPB Structure is Unconstitutional
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Scott Garrett (NJ-05) issued the following statement after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled that the structure of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is unconstitutional: “With a politically appointed head and its ability to bypass Congress to get funding, the CFPB has acted as a rogue federal bureaucracy with unlimited power and no accountability to the American people. Today’s ruling that the CFPB’s structure is unconstitutional is a win for transparency, and for the Constitutionally-mandated checks and balances that protect American families from abuses by overzealous government bureaucrats.   “We need consumer protections that actually put people and families first. The Financial CHOICE Act would achieve this by transforming the CFPB into a bipartisan, five-member commission which is subject to Congressional oversight and appropriations like the SEC, CFTC or the FTC. This is the only way to ensure that Washingto
Editorial: The Wells Fargo Standard
Imagine if the Treasury Secretary had to live by new rules for banks. Democrats are waging a non-stop campaign to punish bank executives for misconduct, both real and imagined. After revelations that Wells Fargo fired thousands of employees for setting up accounts without customer permission, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and her colleagues were howling this week for Wells to claw back bonuses that had been paid to senior executives. Awkwardly for Ms. Warren and her colleagues, Rep. Scott Garrett (R., N.J.) decided to pursue this line of argument a little too vigorously for Democratic tastes. At a hearing this week in the House Financial Services Committee, Mr. Garrett asked Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, who helped preside over a titanic financial disaster at Citigroup in 2008, whether the bank had clawed back any of his compensation. YouTube viewers may be entertained watching the video of this exchange, in which Mr. Lew makes every effort to avoid answering the simple questi
Garrett Statement on the passing of Israeli President Shimon Peres
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Scott Garrett (NJ-05) issued the following statement on the passing of Israeli President Shimon Peres: “Today we mourn the loss of a statesman and a friend of the United States with the passing of Israeli President Shimon Peres. President Peres accomplished so much during his life, including a Nobel Peace Prize and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, but he will always be remembered for his commitment to his people and his fledgling country. My thoughts and prayers are with President Peres’ family and friends, and they are also with the people of Israel as they reflect on the legacy of this influential leader.” ###
