Deutch pitches $5 bil. 'infrastruc.bank' plan to cement firm

Putting $5 billion in federal money into a "national infrastructure bank" would create jobs and reduce the deficit, U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch, D-Boca Raton, told officials from the world's largest cement company Tuesday afternoon. During a visit to Cemex Corp. offices here, Deutch pitched a Democratic bill to create an infrastucture bank, which would combine federal start-up money with private investment to finance road, bridge, electricity and broadband projects around the United States. Versions of an infrastructure bank were touted by then-candidate Barack Obama in 2008 and by a combination of ...

Ranking Member Deutch Votes for Taylor Force Act in Committee
During a House Foreign Affairs Committee markup hearing today, Congressman Ted Deutch (FL-22), Ranking Member of the Middle East and North Africa Subcommittee, voted in favor of the updated Taylor Force Act (H.R. 1164), a bill to pressure the Palestinian Authority to cease payments to terrorists and their families. Ranking Member Deutch issued this statement following the vote: "The Palestinian Authority's 'pay for slay' practice - where terrorists and their families are paid salaries for attacking Israelis - is beyond appalling. No U.S. taxpayer money should ever go to subsidize terrorism by putting money in the pockets of terrorists with blood on their hands. We expect the Palestinian Authority to firmly reject terrorism, cease this program that encourages attacks and killings, and commit to resuming direct negotiations with the Israelis toward a two state solution." The Committee unanimously approved the Palestinian International Terrorism Support Prev
Rep. Deutch Statement on GOP Flood Insurance Plan to Raise Floridians' Costs
Congressman Ted Deutch (FL-22) issued this statement after voting against H.R. 2874, the 21st Century Flood Reform Act, which would increase costs for National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) policyholders and pass the burden on to homeowners and local governments: “Florida is ground zero for climate change, between rising sea levels pushing higher tides inland and worsening storms and hurricanes dumping huge amounts of water across the state. Floridians contribute the most of any state to the NFIP program, and we need a sensible flood insurance program that will actually protect us from the exorbitant costs of flooding. We need a plan that will lower the cost of flood insurance and make more policies available. Instead, House Republicans offered a plan that will raise rates for NFIP policyholders and place a larger burden on local governments. Our flooding program desperately needs updating, but I cannot support this partisan bill that ignores the realities on the ground.” 
Rep. Deutch to AG Sessions: Not Another Saturday Night Massacre
During a House Judiciary Committee hearing with Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Congressman Ted Deutch (FL-22), a senior member of the committee, drilled the Attorney General with questions about the President's ability to obstruct justice, fire the special prosecutor, and pardon campaign and administration officials. "When you started your testimony today, you said that there’s nothing more important than advancing the rule of law. And when you answer the way you have, it suggests that the rule of law is crumbling at our feet." "...And what you’ve told us today, in just this exchange, what we should all be concerned about is another Saturday Night Massacre, if you can’t tell us that the President shouldn’t fire, or can’t fire, the special counsel and everyone who works for him. We should be worried if you’re telling us that the President may be able to pardon in advance all of those who are being investigated. We should be worried about the pursuit of the rule of law
Rep. Deutch Statement on Vote Against GOP Tax Scam
Congressman Ted Deutch (FL-22) issued this statement after voting against H.R. 1, the Republican tax plan to give massive tax breaks to multi-national corporations and the top earners while scrapping crucial deductions that help millions of Floridians reduce their taxes: “Plain and simple, this Republican tax scam is a massive giveaway to multi-billionaires and big corporations, paid for by tax increases for thirty-six million working class and low income Americans. “Unfortunately, it is far removed from the reality of hundreds of millions of Americans. Why don’t we ask the nearly one million Florida households if they are willing to pay more in their taxes so that large corporations can evade paying taxes on billions of off-shore dollars? “Republicans drafted this bill behind closed doors, without any input from Democrats, showing how far they’ll go to please special interest lobbyists rather than working on real bipartisan reform of our nation’s tax code. “A
