Growing debt threatens America's future

Seventh District Congressman Sean Duffy, R-Weston, told area residents attending a town hall meeting Monday at the American Legion building in Ashland that government debt threatens to overwhelm the U.S. economy. "When you look at the issues we face in the country right now, number one we would say is the economy and jobs right now, no doubt, hands down," he said. "But as a sub-issue, the debt is a real problem." Duffy said given that only 40 percent of every dollar spent in the budget was discretionary spending, half of which was for defense, options to cut federal spending are limited. ...

Duffy, Ribble take advantage of congressional travel

U.S. Reps. Sean Duffy and Reid Ribble campaigned for office as outsiders sneering at the ways of Washington. However, it didn't take long for the first-term lawmakers to take advantage of a congressional perk that has been a source of controversy: privately-funded travel. Less than a month after taking the oath of office in January 2011, Duffy, R-Weston, and Ribble, R-Sherwood, and their spouses attended a three-day retreat in Simi Valley, Calif., at the expense of the Heritage Foundation, a leading conservative think tank with headquarters near the Capitol. The total cost for the two couples ...

Duffy Now Advocating Congressional Pay Freeze

Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) has come a long way since a town hall meeting last year where he said he was “struggling” to get by on his $174,000 congressional salary. In fact, Duffy is doing so well that he introduced a bill last week to extend a current pay freeze for federal employees — and freeze salaries for members of Congress. The military is not included in the pay freeze. “At a time when the American taxpayer isn’t getting a pay increase, it doesn’t make sense for them to pay for a pay increase for federal workers,” Duffy told MSNBC’s Andrea ...

Obama Should Not Put Free Speech at Risk on Internet By Giving Up US Oversight
COMMENTARY BY Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) & Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) September 21, 2016   The incredible ingenuity of the American people invented the Internet—one of the most transformational technologies in human history.  But even though we created and paid for the Internet, we did not keep it for ourselves; we shared it for the benefit of all humanity.  That spirit of freedom and generosity is the very essence of our great nation.   Since the internet’s inception, the United States government has played a critical role in supervising the core internet functions that allow websites to interface with the internet.  If any other country had created the internet, this power could have been used to deny internet access to websites that were deemed politically undesirable, unpopular, threatening, or disfavored by the ruling elite.   But not here in the United States. The internet is an oasis of freedom today because of our First Amendment, which is unparalleled in the protect
Duffy Amendment Prohibits Future Cash Payments to State Sponsors of Terror
Included in House Passed H.R. 5931   Washington D.C. – Representative Sean Duffy’s (WI-07) Amendment to ban any future cash payments to state sponsors of terror, and North Korea, was included in H.R. 5931, Prohibiting Future Ransom Payments to Iran Act, which passed the House of Representatives on Thursday evening.  The bill would prohibit the U.S. from making future cash payments to Iran – directly or indirectly – and require regular reports to Congress on settlements and judgments made pursuant to the Iran-U.S. Claims Tribunal at The Hague. Rep. Duffy’s amendment would broaden the prohibition of cash payments beyond Iran and include any country designated as a State Sponsor of Terrorism as well as North Korea, a country which has detained at least 14 Americans in the past decade.  Additionally, his amendment would prohibit payments in precious metal (such as gold) in addition to promissory notes (cash). During debate on the amendment, Rep. Duffy decried that it s
Audit Raises Concern Over St. Croix Chippewa's Use of HUD Grant Money; Duffy Requests Answers from HUD Secretary
Washington D.C. –  The findings of 2014 and 2015 audits of the St. Croix Chippewa Housing Authority raise concerns over how the money may have been allocated. Out of concern that the money is not reaching those in need, House Financial Services Oversight & Investigations Subcommittee Chairman Sean Duffy (WI-07) requests U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro to offer further explanation. The full text of Rep. Duffy’s letter is pasted below and may be found here.   September 28, 2016   The Honorable Julián Castro Secretary Department of Housing and Urban Development ‪451 7th Street, NW Washington, D.C. 20410   Dear Secretary Castro,   On behalf of tribal members in my district, I am troubled by recent reports that millions of dollars in grants given by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to tribes in Wisconsin may not be reaching those in need.    As part of an investigation into the finances of the St
Duffy & Connolly Bill Offers Additional Protections for Whistleblowers
  H.R. 6186, Follow the Rules Act Washington D.C. – Representatives Sean Duffy (WI-07) and Gerry Connolly (VA-11) introduced a bill to extend whistleblower protections for Federal employees who refuse to violate rules and regulations. This bill comes on the heels of a landmark Federal court decision that found that the Whistleblower Protection Act safeguards Federal workers against employment retaliation for refusing orders to violate Federal law, but those same safeguards do not apply to employees who refuse to violate rules and regulations, despite the fact that rules and regulations are supposed to be derived of law.  The Follow the Rules Act will address this glaring inconsistency.   Upon introduction of the bill, Rep. Duffy offered: “Whistleblowers play a key role in rooting out the bad actors who stand in the way of good government. However, a gap in whistleblower protections is threatening their ability to stand-up for what is right.” Rep. Duffy continued: “The W
