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 ...

"You should be using your energy to fight Cancer, not the VA!"
Dear Friends,   On Friday, I brought together representatives from Veterans’ organizations around the 7th District to discuss their experiences with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The group of about 20 Veterans, including former State Senator and Veteran Dave Zien, shared their frustrations with the VA system, bravely offered candid testimonials, and engaged in a thoughtful and ultimately productive discussion about opportunities for reforming the process and cleaning-up the agency. Reforming the VA system has been a priority of mine long before the scandal in Phoenix, AZ was plastered all over the newspapers, but hearing the firsthand accounts from Veterans in our own backyard reignited my outrage with the entire agency. One Veteran, after hearing about the emotional, and harrowing, experience of a fellow Veteran in attendance who is battling Cancer, commented that the VA treats Veterans like second or third class citizens. That is absolutely

House Unanimously Passes Duffy Amendment
Helps Those At-Risk of Homelessness   Washington D.C. – The House of Representatives unanimously passed U.S. Representative Sean Duffy’s amendment to the Transportation and Housing & Urban Development Appropriations bill (T-HUD) that would help curb homelessness in rural communities.   The formulation of this amendment stemmed from Rep. Duffy’s 2013 Hunger & Homelessness Summit which focused on not just meeting the needs of the hungry and homeless in our rural 7th District community, but what could be done to prevent them from becoming homeless in the first place. In his comments during debate, Rep. Duffy explained the plight of poverty in rural communities, “The pain of poverty affects our communities in rural America just like in urban America, but often times it can be a lot more complicated. The face of poverty is different in rural America. Instead of having families move out onto the street, often time we see neighbors – 2 or
Duffy Amendment Would Make Wisconsin Roads Safer
Would Lift I-39 Weight Limit Restriction   Washington D.C. – During debate on the House’s Transportation and Housing & Urban Development (T-HUD) Appropriations bill today, U.S. Representative Sean Duffy (WI-07) offered an amendment to allow up to 98,000 pounds for logging trucks on a 12 mile stretch of I-39, between Rib Mountain and north of Portage. Currently, trucks are forced to split off of US 51 and take back roads to complete their route to the paper mill causing a safety issue to the drivers and community who utilize these side routes.   Click on the image below to watch Rep.
