Small Businesses Need Skilled Workers

With 14 million Americans out of work, it might be surprising to hear that employers are having trouble filling certain positions. Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows 2.7 million jobs remained unfilled in the U.S. in August, and employers are reporting having a hard time finding skilled workers to add to their payroll. ManpowerGroup's 2011 Talent Shortage Survey, released earlier this summer, found that 34% of employers are experiencing difficulties filling positions due to lack of available talent. Of this group, 24% of employers said they aren't finding candidates available in ...

Congressman Scott Tipton(R-CO) is asking his House colleagues to joinhim incalling on the Government Accountability Office to conduct a thorough review andaudit of the Federal Recreation Fee programs operated by the Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management. Americans are paying millions of dollars in fees for access to land that we already own and pay taxes to support.Where has that money gone? Previous audits have identified serious fiscal irregularities, including violations of federal and USDA accounting standards. There is reason to believe that these problems persist and have in ...

Rep. Scott Tipton: Patients, not politics

We must keep the promise to our senior citizens by protecting Medicare and Social Security. Currently, Medicare is on an unsustainable path. If Washington fails to act, the Medicare Trustees — made up primarily of members of President Obama's cabinet — report that Medicare will be bankrupt by 2024. I support a plan that ensures today's seniors and those a decade away from retiring receive all of their benefits in full, while strengthening and securing Medicare for future generations. I have held town hall meetings focusing on Medicare and Social Security, visited dozens of ...

Tipton Calls for Replacement Healthcare Solution with Repeal Vote
WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO) issued this statement following the first vote by the House of Representatives in the 114th Congress to repeal the President’s failed healthcare law. H.R. 596 would fully repeal the Affordable Care Act and instruct House committees to submit an alternative plan. “The ability of all Americans to access affordable, quality healthcare shouldn’t hinge on politics or legacies. The fact that the Affordable Care Act has failed to achieve the goals of affordability and accessibility for all Americans, and in many cases made it even harder for them to get the care they need, necessitates its repeal and a replacement solution. That’s where the conversation needs to focus. “Repeal of this misguided law is not the only answer to the nation’s many healthcare challenges, which is why I am working with my colleagues to craft a replacement solution. Unlike the President’s healthcare law, which through big government policies has led
Tipton Blasts President’s Attempt to Raid Veterans’ Healthcare Program
WASHINGTON—Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO), today, raised concerns over a provision in the President’s budget proposal that seeks to raid funds from the newly established Veterans Choice Program. The President is proposing to allow the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to redirect funds from the program (currently funded at $10 billion) to meet other ambiguous needs at the agency. “It’s unbelievable after everything that has happened at the VA over the past two years, that just when a critical program was put into place to help veterans who have experienced unacceptably long wait times for appointments and rural healthcare access issues, the President has the nerve to raid the account that makes these fixes possible. Not only is this unacceptable, but it’s a slap to the face of veterans who are essentially being told that their ability to access timely, local care isn’t as high of a priority for the President as shifting funds elsewhere to service the endless bureaucracy
Tipton: FHA Practices Pose Risk to Taxpayers
WASHINGTON—Today, Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO) questioned Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Julian Castro during a House Committee on Financial Services oversight hearing to examine the Federal Housing Administration’s (FHA) precarious financial state. According to a third-party actuarial report released in November 2014, the Mutual Mortgage Insurance Fund’s (MMIF) economic value was $4.8 billion, which is the sum of the FHA’s existing capital resources plus the net present value of its current books of business. However, the report calculated the FHA’s capital reserve ratio includes more than $2 billion in proceeds from recent Justice Department settlements with mortgage lenders. The report showed that the FHA’s reserve ratio was 0.41 percent, when the statutorily mandated minimum standard is 2 percent. “The inability of HUD Secretary Castro to answer basic questions on the FHA’s portfolio today, specifically on matters related to its cap
Tipton Votes Ease Tax Burden on Small Businesses, Encourage Charitable Giving
WASHINGTON— Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO) joined his House colleagues in passing legislation this week to make permanent provisions that simplify the tax code and create greater certainty for small businesses and opportunities for families, and to incentive charitable giving. “Generosity and hard work are among the foremost values that have shaped our country into a land of opportunity and prosperity for generations. Given the chance, Americans will rise to the occasion to help a neighbor in need and provide for their families. That’s what makes this such a special place to live, and I believe that these values should be encouraged by the policies coming out of Washington,” said Tipton. “As part of our continued effort to create an economic climate in which businesses and families can thrive, we passed legislation this week in the House to simplify the tax code and provide greater certainty and relief for small businesses and families, and also make permanent a critical pro
