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 ...

Veterans: We Hear You!
Washington D.C. – U.S. Representative Sean Duffy’s (WI-07) amendment to help Veterans receive better access to hearing healthcare was included in The Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014, which passed the House with a bipartisan majority, 310 to 116 on Wednesday. Upon the Bill’s passage, Rep. Duffy offered the following comments:   "At a time when the VA is desperate for some good news, this is an opportunity for Congress and the VA to get it right. Veterans in my district are driving up to 90 miles one way just to get hearing services from an audiologist at the Veteran’s Administration,” said Congressman Duffy.  “These Veterans could receive the same service from a local hearing aid specialist, but under current law, the VA is only allowed to use audiologists. My amendment fixes this problem by adding hearing aid specialists to the list of providers the VA is allowed to use. This will provide greater freedom, flexibility, and more options for the

Duffy on Just Revealed $1.7 billion Cash Payment to Iran
Washington D.C. – House Financial Services Oversight & Investigations Subcommittee Chairman Sean Duffy (WI-07) released the following statement after it was revealed that the Administration paid Iran, the leading State sponsor of terrorism, an additional $1.3 billion in interest on top of the widely reported $400 million dollars – all in cash: "This new revelation raises additional questions and underscores the need for Administration officials to answer them at Thursday’s hearing. Today’s briefing was conducted at the staff level without any of the American people’s representatives in Congress and much of what was discussed was unclassified. There is no reason why the Administration shouldn’t answer questions in an open setting about why the United States sent more than a billion dollars to Iran in cold hard cash.” Chairman Duffy is leading a hearing on the issue, along with the impact of such a payment on terrorism financing, Thursday at 10:00 AM.      
3 Startling Statements from Hearing on $1.7 Billion Cash Payment to Iran
Washington D.C. – House Financial Services Oversight & Investigations Subcommittee Chairman Sean Duffy (WI-07) held a hearing on the Administration’s $1.7 billion cash payment to Iran. Hearing witnesses made startling comments as to the nature of the deal. The top three moments from Chairman Duffy’s line of questioning below:   1.  A State Department official could not guarantee that the $1.7 billion cash payment would not be used to fund terrorism: "I just want to note that there is a risk that you have taken in providing $1.7 billion to the lead sponsor of terrorism in the world. I don't want to be chastised on this committee about information that could hurt your negotiations when I feel this deal has endangered security in the region and for U.S. citizens."     2. The payment would not necessarily have been made without the exchange of five American prisoners: "I think more common sense Americans say, 'hey, this was $400 million for the release of five
