Leahy, on his NO vote, as Senate nears final passage of tax plan

first_imgStatement of Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.)On Consideration of The Conference Report to H.R. 1The Tax Cuts and Jobs ActDecember 19, 2017Little more than a month ago, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was unveiled in the Senate.  Just a few short weeks later, we are on the verge of passing a colossal bill, publicly available for just four days, that makes sweeping changes to every aspect of our economy.  We are moving so fast that the American people would be forgiven for thinking we were addressing a national emergency.  And yet, fires are still blazing in California, power in Puerto Rico is still not fully restored, and victims around the Gulf of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria are still struggling to pick up the pieces and rebuild.  There are indeed national emergencies we should be addressing, but instead of doing so, Republicans in Congress are focused first on passing tax cuts for corporations and billionaires – tax cuts that will add an estimated $1.5 trillion to the deficit.The process that led to the bill we are voting on today has been fundamentally flawed from the outset.  From the beginning, this bill has been written behind closed doors by Senate Republicans.  No hearings were ever held on this bill, denying the American people an opportunity to add their voices to the debate.  When the Senate voted on its version of this bill in the dead of night, Senators only received the text a few hours before the vote – and even then, the text was hastily put together, with scribbles written into the margins.  We discovered that lobbyists knew more about what was in it than those of us who had the responsibility to vote on it.  No wonder that it was loaded with last-minute special interest giveaways.There is serious doubt this bill will benefit the middle class, as Republicans claim.  What we do know is that it will result in millions of fewer insured Americans and higher health care premiums for millions more.  At the same time, corporations will receive a windfall in permanent tax cuts that will bust our budget for decades to come.  Even more appallingly, it includes special provisions that will directly benefit the President and some Members of Congress.  It doesn’t end there.  Republicans have yet to address the $1 trillion in cuts to Medicare, Social Security and other programs vital to the American people, which will be spurred by the passage of this bill.  This bill cynically and surreptitiously sets the stage for those slashing cuts. This is a bill that cheats our future for the sake of a tax-cut windfall for the one percent.  It does absolutely wonderful things for the wealthiest taxpayers, like the President, his cronies and his family.  If he wants to dispute that, he should finally release his tax returns, and prove to the American people that the “Christmas present” the President talks about will not, in fact, benefit his bottom line. What we do know is this bill does not advance the common good.  It offers little but crumbs on the table and coal in the stockings of hardworking Americans, while the wealthiest individuals and corporations reap the rewards of this bill, with the false promise of trickle-down benefits to everyone else.  The wealthiest are doing just fine and big corporations already are pulling in record profits, which they’re not investing but salting away.  More than 400 millionaires have urgently told Congress that they don’t need more tax cuts.  Republicans will continue to claim that their bill represents serious tax reform, but the public isn’t fooled.  Poll after poll shows that the American people see this bill for what it is: a betrayal of the middle class and a betrayal of American values.  They have seen enough of trickle-down economics to know that the benefits never flow to them.  At the end of the day, it is clear that this bill was never really about the middle class; it was about the Republican donor class.I wish we had gone down a different path, one where both parties worked together to provide real relief to the working families we all represent.  It belies the storied history of this institution to rush through such a sweeping bill, through an arcane process of reconciliation intended to secure the lowest possible number of votes to succeed, without the benefit of public opinion, or even public review.After one of the least productive sessions of Congress that I can recall, Republicans are so desperate for a “win” that they will mortgage away our future.  This bill is not tax reform.  This is a cartoonish caricature of what real tax reform should look like.  It is dishonest to its core.  It is cynical, and it can only breed more cynicism by the public.  It is bad policy, it is indefensible policy, and it is wrong.It is said that every generation has a responsibility to leave our nation better, brighter, and stronger for the generations that follow.  This tax bill accomplishes none of those goals.I strongly oppose – I reject – this conference report, and the crass, partisan path that brought us here.last_img read more

State LEDA Investments Boost Rural Communities – Longtime Vacant Buildings Now Viable

first_imgMedlin Ramps purchases vacant Walmart store in Alamogordo. Courtesy/EDD Big Dog Industries purchases cheese factory vacant for more than 10 years in Lovington. Courtesy/EDDEDD News:SANTA FE — The New Mexico Economic Development Department has worked quickly in the past year to help rural communities across the state bring new life to some vacant properties through a series of Local Economic Development Act (LEDA) fund investments.Alamogordo and Otero County were among the first local governments to pass a LEDA ordinance and the community has invested wisely over the years. Medlin Ramps, based in California, chose Alamogordo for its third U.S. location. The company is a leading manufacturer of ramps and material handling equipment.“We are delighted when companies like Medlin and others choose to locate in our rural communities, reviving vacant properties and providing jobs and educational opportunities outside the metro corridor,” Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham said. “These investments help New Mexicans thrive in the communities they know and love.”Medlin purchased a vacant Walmart store and 25 acres at the intersection of Highways 54 and 70. In addition to creating 45 jobs, Medlin will create a welding apprenticeship program at New Mexico State University. A state LEDA investment of $250,000 will support the building renovation, and the City of Alamogordo is investing $2.5 million in the expansion.“This is great news for Alamogordo. It provides an example of what is possible when businesses know they’re welcome in rural New Mexico. In a competitive market, programs such as LEDA at the local and state level, show commitment to economic development and delivers the message that we are open for business,” said Interim Executive Director Laurie Anderson of Otero County Economic Development Council.More than half of the 50 states have some kind of deal closing fund. While these funds might be prevalent, often states do not make those investments in smaller communities, like Cimarron, Lovington, and Las Vegas.“Gov. Lujan Grisham and the EDD are committed to rural New Mexico and proud to be different. We know a small investment in these communities can have big outcomes for creating more opportunities and jobs so New Mexicans can work close to home,” said Economic Development Cabinet Secretary Alicia J. Keyes.In another case of a company re-purposing a vacant building, Big Dog Industries purchased an old cheese factory in Lovington for its hemp operation. The building had been empty for more than a decade. The fact that another economic base business took over the location will have a huge impact in the community in terms of bringing in new dollars. The state invested $750,000 in this project, which will create 125 new jobs, and the city invested $250,000.“The Big Dog Industries project is a perfect example of why LEDA exists. This project provides a blueprint for local government of communities the size of Lovington, who have enacted LEDA, to follow, so that their projects are a success,” City of Lovington Manager James R. Williams said. “To bring a manufacturing project of this size to a community like ours is a substantial game changer and proves that local LEDA investments work. The partnerships between private, local, and state government is how we can grow our job base, diversify our economy, and invest in the future of Lovington and the State of New Mexico.”The Meston family has been in cattle ranching and showing since the 1930’s. They own the Fifteen Mile Ranch in Bennett, Colo. High Plains Processing LLC is an expansion of their long history in the business. The company will invest $1.6 million in a vacant building in Las Vegas, and for modern equipment to process meat from local ranches. The state has pledged $100,000 in LEDA funds for the creation of 20 jobs.“We are delighted that High Plains Processing will soon open in Las Vegas, N.M., and look forward to working with them and our historic ranching community to provide local high quality meats at our restaurants in the Castañeda, Plaza and Legal Tender,” said Allan Affeldt, owner of Castañeda & Plaza Hotels.Lance Forest Products is yet another value-added agricultural business that chose rural New Mexico. This family-owned company is moving a sawmill from northern California to Cimarron in an effort to revitalize the forest industry in the northeast quadrant of the state. Once the operation is underway it plans to hire 40 employees with an equal number under contract to cut the trees and deliver the timber. The state will invest $350,000 in the project.“The Cimarron, Lance Forest Sawmill Project, is a perfect fit for the Northeast mountains. It is an historic use of our natural resources, creating employment and improving forest health for New Mexicans,” said Tim O’Neill of O’Neill Land, LLC.Since EDD began tracking LEDA funds in FY14, nearly $40 million has been invested in rural communities, generating over $1 billion in new private investment and supporting the creation of 4,270 jobs.last_img read more
