Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee: GOP fright fest: Ron Johnson inches closer to a devastating default crisis

With a default crisis looming just days away, Republicans in Washington like Ron Johnson continue to inch us closer to a potential economic catastrophe. Their only “plan” has been to sit back and let the House – which is currently mired in chaos and dysfunction – act first. Headlines like this one from the Washington Post “Senate to House on debt limit vote: You first,” and this one from The Hill “Senate waiting for House on debt ceiling” are blaring, but the House efforts to stop a crisis have predictably fallen apart. From Politico: 

House GOP leadership is likely to abandon tentative plans to vote on a Republican Study Committee-penned bill to lift the debt limit, throwing into question how Congress is going to lift the borrowing limit before a Nov. 3 deadline. 

House leadership was considering a vote on the Terms of Credit Act Friday, but several GOP insiders said they will not put the bill on the floor. A Wednesday night whip check showed the party several dozen votes short, according to multiple sources familiar with the count. 

Meanwhile, after already taking us to the brink of a DHS shutdown and a full government shutdown this year, Senator Ron Johnson has done absolutely nothing to stop a potential default crisis. 

“As Senate Republicans continue to manufacture one crisis after another this time leading us closer to a default with each passing day, Senator Ron Johnson is playing a very dangerous and frightening game with our economy and the security of middle class families,” said Sadie Weiner, DSCC Communications Director. “A default would have a disastrous impact on our economy at a time when many working families are just regaining their footing, but Senator Johnson seems to care more about Washington parlor games than stopping this catastrophe and Wisconsin families deserve better.” 

BACKGROUND: 

Head Of World’s Largest Bond Fund Said Failure To Raise The Debt Ceiling Would Be “Catastrophic” And Cause The Stock Market To “Plunge.” “But most analysts take a darker view. Bill Gross, who runs Pimco, the world’s biggest bond fund, said in an e-mail that failure to raise the debt ceiling would be ‘catastrophic — global investors would move money at the margin to countries which have their act together, interest rates might rise by 50 basis points overnight, the stock market would plunge.’” [Washington Post, 4/26/11]  

JPMorgan Study Showed Even A Brief Default Could Lead To A Spike In Interest Rates That Could Cost The Government As Much As $75 Billion A Year And Increase Cost Of Buying A Car Or Getting A Mortgage. “The last time this looked like a serious threat in 2011, analysts at JPMorgan looked at the probable "domino effects’ of the Treasury default, and they weren't pretty. What if the dominoes start falling? Among the ‘long-term adverse consequences for Treasury finances and the U.S. economy’ of even a brief default, the JPMorgan analysts figured the list includes a spike in interest rates as investors find other places to put their cash. Those higher rates could cost the government as much as $75 billion a year, they estimated. But that's only the beginning. Those higher rates would flow through the rest of the economy, raising the cost of buying a new car or getting a new mortgage.” [CNBC, 10/9/15] 

Former CBO Director And McCain Economic Advisor Doug Holtz-Eakin Said Default Would Have “Dramatic Impacts On Consumer Confidence” That “The World’s Melting Down Again.” “Without a hike, the specter of a default on U.S. obligations looms large — potentially setting the stage for significant market turmoil and dire consequences for America’s financial reputation across the globe. ‘The first thing you’ll see is a market reaction,’ said Doug Holtz-Eakin, head of the right-leaning American Action Forum and a former director of the Congressional Budget Office. ‘Then you’ve got dramatic impacts on consumer confidence, the world’s melting down again and they go into an economic fetal position … there’s just no good news there.’” [The Hill, 10/16/15] 

· Holtz-Eakin Said Default Crisis Would Lead To “Very Bad Economic Outcomes” And “Chaos In The Financial Markets.” “‘Without a hike, the specter of a default on U.S. obligations looms large — potentially setting the stage for significant market turmoil and dire consequences for America’s financial reputation across the globe.’ said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, former Congressional Budget Office director, now president of American Action Forum.” [CNN, The Lead, 10/8/13] 

Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen Said Default Crisis Would Be “Catastrophic.” “The results of not lifting the statutory limit on borrowing would be ‘catastrophic,’ Ms. Yellen said. ‘Even in the run-up to the last debt ceiling crisis, [one] could see market participants taking steps in advance of that.’” [Wall Street Journal, Money Beat, 2/11/14] 

CNBC: If Treasury Stopped Paying Government’s Bill, It “Could Hit Everyone From Small Business Government Contractors To Social Security Recipients” To Reimbursements To Doctors Treating Medicare Patients. “If the Treasury abruptly stopped paying the government's bills, the freeze could hit everyone from small business government contractors to Social Security recipients to doctors getting reimbursed for treating Medicare patients.” [CNBC, 10/9/15]


Rep. Zepnick: Transportation borrowing in Wisconsin is out of control

Rep. Zepnick: Transportation borrowing in Wisconsin is out of control
10/22/2015 

Transportation borrowing in Wisconsin is out of control. 
New revenue is needed now while gas prices are at an all-time low 

State Representative Josh Zepnick today called on Governor Walker and legislative leaders to come together to come up with a real solution to Wisconsin’s Transportation department funding troubles, especially the high level of debt to future taxpayers. Zepnick said that the “Governor’s repeated calls for more road borrowing, is basically a promise to raise taxes in the future and at even higher levels. That’s bad public policy and irresponsible budgeting.” 

Zepnick has introduced a plan that allows cities or counties to tax gasoline at the pump with Wisconsin’s sales tax, and all revenue be placed in a local infrastructure fund. Under this plan, a city or county with a majority vote approved by their governing authorities could implement up to the 5% state sales tax on the gas pump all locally controlled. For Milwaukee County, this could yield between $10 and $90 million annually for Transportation projects. 

The Governor’s own Task Force (Wisconsin Transportation Finance and Policy Commission) indicated the need to avoid future debt burdens, saddling future generations of taxpayers with more costs and higher taxes. Historically, the portion of bonding for transportation projects has been on average 6%. Today’s proposal would make Wisconsin exceed 12% more than doubling our debt and creating future bills to pay. 

Roughly ten years ago, Democrats repealed the automatic gas tax hike because of overwhelming public demand to have a vote in the Legislature as part of the regular process of open and transparent decision-making over taxes and spending.  

“I have talked with hundreds of my constituents as well as others throughout the state of Wisconsin. They are not necessarily opposed to higher taxes or fees for transportation. They simply want public officials to not sneak the money in each year without there ever being a public discussion over spending and revenues. Furthermore, Milwaukee taxpayers want more money to fix potholes, repair state and county highways to modern specifications, and improve public transportation before WisDOT makes large-scale commitments for questionable Interstate expansions.” 

“The 4 mile stretch between the Zoo Interchange and the Marquette Interchange greatly impacts the South Side district that I represent. Especially considering access to the growing and thriving Menomonee Valley, the DOT’s expansion plans were way overpriced to the tune of $200+ million per mile. That does not count future maintenance costs. Where is this money coming from?” Zepnick pointed out.


U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin and Senate Democrats Call on McConnell, Reid to Close Carried Interest Loophole

U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin and Senate Democrats Call on McConnell, Reid to Close Carried Interest Loophole

As budget negotiations move forward, Baldwin and colleagues urge Senate leadership to include tax reform in bipartisan budget agreement

Thursday, October 22, 2015

WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin led a group of Senate Democrats in sending a letter to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Minority Leader Harry Reid, urging both leaders to include a provision to close the carried interest loophole as part of a bipartisan budget agreement. Senator Baldwin was joined in sending the letter by Senators Jack Reed (D-RI), Al Franken (D-MN), Bernard Sanders (I-VT), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Barbara Mikulski (D-MD), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI).

As we work on a bipartisan budget agreement, Congress has a choice. We can embrace misguided and harmful budget cuts that are stunting economic growth. Or we can work together to repeal the carried interest loophole and use the revenue to invest in an economy that works for everyone, not just the wealthy few. For me, the choice is clear,” said Senator Baldwin.

In June, Senator Baldwin and House Ways and Means Committee Ranking Member Sander Levin (D-MI) introduced the Carried Interest Fairness Act of 2015. The legislation would end the carried interest loophole and ensure that income earned managing other people's money is taxed at the same ordinary income tax rates as that of the vast majority of Americans.

The non-partisan Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) estimated that the Baldwin-Levin legislation to close the carried interest loophole would raise $15.6 billion in revenue.

“We are encouraged that negotiations are underway to provide Americans relief from the damaging cuts and budget caps laid out in the Budget Control Act.  These indiscriminate cuts were never intended to be permanent policy and we are supportive of efforts to reach a bipartisan budget compromise. As you continue your work to find the revenue and spending cuts required to craft such a deal, we encourage you to consider including a provision to close the carried interest loophole. This long overdue tax change would raise valuable revenue to finance critical investments and prevent damaging sequester cuts,” the senators wrote in today’s letter.

Support for closing the carried interest loophole spans the political spectrum. Led by Americans for Tax Fairness, over 50 national organizations echoed the Senators’ call to eliminate the carried interest loophole saying, “Any budget deal should include raising significant revenues from the wealthy and corporations. Closing the carried interest loophole should be among the first items considered in the ongoing negotiations to prevent the damaging and indiscriminate sequester cuts and to invest in critical programs that support low- and middle-income Americans.”

In September, President Barack Obama called for bipartisan work to repeal the carried interest tax loophole during remarks at a Business Roundtable meeting in Washington, D.C., “Keeping this tax loophole, which leads to folks who are doing very well paying lower rates than their secretaries, is not in any demonstrable way improving our economy.”

Full text of the letter:

October 22, 2015

Dear Majority Leader McConnell and Minority Leader Reid:

We are encouraged that negotiations are underway to provide Americans relief from the damaging cuts and budget caps laid out in the Budget Control Act.  These indiscriminate cuts were never intended to be permanent policy and we are supportive of efforts to reach a bipartisan budget compromise. As you continue your work to find the revenue and spending cuts required to craft such a deal, we encourage you to consider including a provision to close the carried interest loophole. This long overdue tax change would raise valuable revenue to finance critical investments and prevent damaging sequester cuts.

Allowing sequester cuts to move forward at this crucial time could do serious harm to the American economy and middle-class families. Closing the carried interest loophole would have a negligible impact on economic output, while taking a significant step towards sequester relief. The Carried Interest Fairness Act (S. 1686) was recently estimated by the Joint Committee on Taxation to raise $15.6 billion in revenue over ten years.

Closing this loophole is also advisable from a tax fairness perspective. The loophole allows investment managers to receive a 50 percent discount on the taxes they pay on their labor income. This allows many of our economy’s highest earners to pay a lower effective tax rate than our nurses, first responders, truck drivers, and teachers. This inequity in the tax code is also a driving force behind rising income inequality in the United States.

As you know, President Obama has been a long-time supporter of closing the carried interest loophole, including it in several of his budget requests. In addition to the President, closing the loophole has been proposed by Republican tax writers and prominent members of the investment management community. With support increasing by the day, we believe that the current budget negotiation is the perfect opportunity to make this long overdue change to our tax code.


Moore Introduces Young Adults Safety Act

Moore Introduces Young Adults Safety Act

 

Washington, D.C. – Upon the introduction of the Young Adults Safety Act, Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI-04) released the following statement:

“We’re seeing a growing pattern by cities across the country to use driver’s license suspensions as a means to punish those who fail to pay a municipal debt. Often, these penalties have nothing to do with traffic infractions or poor driving behavior and are imposed against those who have yet to even reach the legal driving age. These suspensions disproportionately impact minorities, including young African American males. According to one report, in 2011, African Americans received 69% of failure-to-pay suspensions in Milwaukee County. For young people, one of the dire consequences of such additional barriers to having a driver’s licenses is that, at a key part in their life, it can limit education opportunities, job opportunities and the ability to gain critical work experience.

“This alarming trend inspired me to introduce the Young Adults Safety Act, which would provide the capacity to help develop model programs to help low-resource teens and young adults acquire a driver’s license or regain their license after a suspension. Make no mistake: Those with a flagrant disregard for public safety don’t belong behind the wheel. This bill aims to develop and implement strategies to address the many barriers that low-income youth encounter in their efforts to obtain a license and drive legally. 

I can tell you firsthand that a valid driver’s license can be a means — and in some cases the only means given service cuts experienced by public transit systems in Milwaukee and  nationwide — to find gainful employment and thrive. I ask my congressional colleagues to pass this piece of legislation to help make our local roads and highways safer while empowering our constituents to build a brighter economic future for themselves and their families.”

Senator Harris Dodd Responds to Bill Criminalizing Parents

Senator Harris-Dodd Responds to Bill Criminalizing Parents
MADISON- Senator Nikiya Harris Dodd (D-Milwaukee) released the following statement as the Senate Judiciary and Public Safety Committee held a hearing on SB 324, which criminalizes low-income families.

“Our state has a responsibility to ensure that we are making reasonable decisions to keep families safe. However, Senate Bill 324 allows for parents to be arrested and charged with child neglect for failing to provide economic supports to children, thus criminalizing poor families rather than providing them with necessary community programs and services.  Without consulting child welfare agencies, child advocates, and their legislative colleagues who work on children’s issues, the bill authors blindly introduced a poorly drafted bill that will have resounding unintended consequences into many low-income communities across the state.”

Bipartisan Baldwin Effort to Save Perkins Loans Obstructed Once Again in Senate

Bipartisan Baldwin Effort to Save Perkins Loans Obstructed Once Again in Senate

UW System President and Chancellors: “With the expiration of the program, our students are ‘caught in the middle.’”

Wednesday, October 21, 2015

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin, a member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee, today went to the Senate floor for a second time to save the critical Federal Perkins Loan Program, which expired on September 30, 2015. Senator Baldwin took action with a “unanimous consent request” to fund the student loan program for one year, but Senator John McCain (R-AZ) objected on behalf of Senate Republican leadership.

On September 30, Senator Baldwin led a bipartisan coalition on the Senate floor in an attempt to save the program before its expiration. Senator Lamar Alexander, Chairman of the HELP Committee, blocked their efforts.

During her remarks on the floor today, Senator Baldwin discussed her recent college affordability listening session in Kenosha“During the course of that conversation, it was abundantly clear that most of the students were very frustrated that Congress could not take the most commonsense steps to make it happen. I told them I shared their frustration and ensured them I would be going back to Washington, D.C. to fight on their behalf…So here I am, almost one month from the day I last stood here on the Senate floor. One month since a single Senator, stood up and blocked a commonsense – and bipartisan – measure that would have continued to provide critical, financial support for America’s low-income students.”

Today, Senator Baldwin received a letter from UW System President Ray Cross and cosigned by all fourteen UW System chancellors. In addition to Senator Baldwin, the letter was addressed to the leadership of both House and Senate education committees, as well as Senator Ron Johnson and Representatives Mark Pocan and Glenn Grothman. In their message to Congress they shared compelling insight into how the sudden end to the Federal Perkins Loan program is already affecting Wisconsin students.

“…we need to keep this program in place. After all, our job is to help students who would not otherwise be able to attend higher education and to help them overcome barriers, particularly financial barriers, all of which helps to ensure access, retention, completion, and a skilled workforce. These are goals upon which we all can agree,” they wrote.

“I am disappointed that our bipartisan effort has once again been obstructed. I will continue to fight to extend this support for America’s students and I hope students across America urge their Senators to join this effort so that we can find a way to show the half a million students that we stand with them and are committed to helping them build a stronger future for themselves and our country,” said Senator Baldwin after her bipartisan efforts were obstructed today.

Since 1958, the Federal Perkins Loan Program has been successfully helping Americans access affordable higher education with low-interest loans for students who cannot borrow or afford more expensive private student loans. In Wisconsin, the program provides more than 20,000 low-income students with more than $41 million in aid.

In fact, the program has been a critical resource for thousands of the neediest UW System students over the years, dispersing nearly $29 million to more than 15,800 students in 2013-14 alone. In other words, nearly 1 in every 11 students enrolled in the UW System that year were directly impacted by the Federal Perkins Loan Program. 

Last month, Senator Baldwin introduced a bipartisan resolution urging the extension of the program. The resolution is cosponsored by Republican Senators Ayotte, Collins, Kirk, Portman, Thune, and Rounds.

The Federal Perkins Loan Program provides low-interest loans to students who cannot borrow or afford more expensive private student loans. Colleges originate, service and collect the loans. Through a revolving fund, institutions maintain loans available for future students.

Since the program’s creation, institutions have invested millions of dollars in their own funds in the program. In addition to making higher education accessible for low-income students, the program serves as an incentive for people who wish to go into public service by offering targeted loan cancellations for specific professions in areas of national need such as teaching, nursing, and law enforcement.


Democratic Party Starts Ad Buy on Republican Bills Ushering in New Era of Corruption

 Madison - Martha Laning, Chair of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, today announced a digital ad campaign to call attention to the numerous bills being fast-tracked by the Republican leadership in the Wisconsin State Legislature this week that will foster corruption in Wisconsin elections. The statewide ad campaign will call attention to the bills coming that will be voted on this week to eliminate the state elections watchdog agency and rewrite campaign finance bills to allow corporate money into state elections for the first time in Wisconsin history.

 “Republicans know Wisconsin residents want them to focus on fixing our roads, investing in our schools and helping all Wisconsinites instead of just a select few. Since they are only working on bills to help their own campaigns, they are rushing these bills through in the hopes no one will notice. Wisconsin Democrats are holding press conferences and starting an ad campaign to let everyone know these dangerous bills are about to be voted on this week,” said Laning.

 “Republicans are hoping to quickly pass these bills to eliminate the GAB and allow corporate funding of Wisconsin elections before too many people even see everything in these bills. These dramatic changes are moving too fast,” said Laning. 

 Speaker Vos introduced an 18-page amendment to the bill to rewrite Wisconsin’s campaign finance laws (AB 387) on Thursday hours before the Assembly Committee on Campaigns and Elections voted on the bill. The amendment contained over 100 changes to the original bill and was not accompanied by the summary usually done by Legislative Council because there wasn’t enough time for one to be completed. The committee chair forced a vote on the bill even though most members were not aware of everything the amendment would do to current law.

 “Wisconsin’s tradition of clean, honest elections is under attack this week. Wisconsin Democrats are doing everything they can to slow the bill down so the press and the public can learn more about it before they become law. There is simply no reason changes this big need to be voted on this week. Speaker Vos is rushing these bills because he knows if he allows people to see everything that is in the bill, people will be outraged,” said Laning.

 The Assembly will also vote on a bill to end John Doe investigations for political crimes (AB 68) and a bill to eliminate the Government Accountability Board (AB 388) this week.

 “No one is calling for corporate money to be spent on elections for the first time in Wisconsin history. And when was the last time you heard someone ask for more horrible campaign ads on TV by anonymous out-of-state groups?” asked Laning.


Rep. Barca: Democratic weekly radio address

Democratic Weekly Radio Address:
"Wisconsin is Open for Corruption"

MADISON – Today Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) offered the Democratic Weekly Radio Address. The topic this week is bills passed by Republicans that will decimate state campaign finance laws, dismantle Wisconsin's non-partisan Government Accountability Board and make it harder for political corruption to be investigated or prosecuted.

"As Republicans open the door for corruption, the door on Wisconsin’s era of clean, open and transparent government has been slammed shut," Rep. Barca said. "When I talk to people around the state, not one person has ever told me they want corporations to have an ever greater influence over our government. No one has ever told me we should have partisan control over our election process. No one has ever told me we should make it easier for political corruption to go undetected and unprosecuted or that we should open the door to more cronyism in state government."

The audio file of this week’s address can be found here.

Please also consider running this version of the address as a column in your publication. A copy of this version is attached here.

A written transcript of the address is below:

This week Republicans passed bills to make Wisconsin open for corruption.

First, Republicans voted to decimate our state’s campaign finance laws by enabling individuals and corporations to spend unlimited amounts of money campaigning, in many cases without any disclosure of their identity. Also – for the first time in modern Wisconsin history – corporations would be able to give unlimited money directly to political parties and campaign committees.

Second, Republicans voted to dismantle our non-partisan Government Accountability Board (GAB) and turn our elections and ethics watchdogs into partisan lapdogs. Perhaps worse, they have to ask for funds from the Finance Committee to launch major investigations, in some cases from the people they would be investigating.

Third, Republicans passed what many have called the “Corrupt Politician Protection Act” because it exempts political crimes from John Doe investigations, while other crimes are still included.

Next week, Republicans plan to undermine our civil service system and open the door for corruption and cronyism during an Administration already rocked by scandal.

When I talk to people and around the state, not one person has ever told me they want corporations to have an ever greater influence over our government.

No one has ever told me we should have partisan control over our election process.

No one has ever told me we should make it easier for political corruption to go undetected and unprosecuted or that we should open the door to more cronyism in state government.

With these new extreme changes, I fear for the ability of everyday citizens to have a say in their government. As Republicans open the door for corruption, the door on Wisconsin’s era of clean, open and transparent government has been slammed shut. I hope Wisconsin citizens will call their legislators before the Senate takes action on these horrendous bills.

Assembly Democrats Recuse Themselves from Vote on Campaign Finance Bill 

MADISON – Today members of the Assembly Democratic Caucus recused themselves from voting on Assembly Bill 387, which will enable individuals to spend unlimited amounts of money campaigning without any disclosure of their identity. The bill would also – for the first time in modern Wisconsin history – allow corporations to give unlimited money directly to political parties and campaign committees. 

The Democratic legislators chose to recuse themselves based on having a “substantial financial interest” under the bill because the bill could directly impact individual legislators’ campaign committees. 

“There is no question that legislators’ campaigns stand to benefit significantly from this Republican legislation that enables the super wealthy corporations and special interests to dump more money into our elections and our government without any transparency,” Assembly Democratic Leader Peter Barca (D-Kenosha) said. “This bill is designed solely to enrich elected officials’ campaigns and it will enable our government to be sold to the highest bidder and will open Wisconsin for corruption. After Republicans refused to even consider Democratic efforts to improve the bill – or at least ensure that their campaign committees wouldn't immediately benefit – the only reasonable course of action was for Democrats to recuse ourselves from voting on this bill, and I am disappointed that our Republican colleagues chose not to do the same.” 

According to Wisconsin Statute 19.46, “No state public official may take any official action substantially affecting a matter in which the official, a member of his or her immediate family, or an organization with which the official is associated has a substantial financial interest.”


Representative Brostoff’s Statement on Passage of the Corrupt Politician Protection Act

Representative Brostoff’s Statement on Passage of the Corrupt Politician Protection Act

Legislators do not have the right to create or undo legislation to protect themselves yet yesterday Assembly Republicans voted to end John Doe investigations taken out against politicians despite the fact that John Doe probes have been proven time and time again to work against both parties.

Today, the bi-partisan Government Accountability Board (GAB) was voted to be dismantled. It will revert to the same format that, just over a decade ago, permitted the heinous caucus scandal. It was the most shameful abuse of tax payer money in state history, it took place in these very halls, and it ended with members of both parties serving jail time.

Legislators do not have the right to debase campaign finance rules by doubling some of the limits while removing others altogether and destroying almost every one of the transparency policies. This legislation makes it easier for people and corporations to effectively buy offices for the legislators who will vote on their behalf.

These bills were pulled out just weeks ago and shoved through the system, Republicans hoped, before the public would notice. I voted against the John Doe and GAB bills. The campaign finance bill I recused myself from, as did all of my Democratic colleagues. The bill, obviously, was a conflict of interest for all Assembly members on the Floor today. While everyone on my side of the aisle did what they have vowed to do, recused themselves when faced with a conflict of interest, not a single member from across the aisle did the same. Not one.

These appalling campaign finance changes make it easier for politicians to be corrupt, the GAB changes make this corruption harder to investigate, and the John Doe changes make it almost impossible to convict anyone for their corruption. This was a sad week for Wisconsin.”
