Maloney Rallies To Save Government-Run Export-Import Bank

CBS-New York

NEW YORK  — U.S. Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) on Saturday joinedbusiness owners and employees in a rally to save the Export-Import Bank from closing.

Maloney said the closure of the government-run bank, which helps businesses finance the exports of American goods made outside the country, would cost 205,000 jobs around the state and the country.

The charter for the Export-Import Bank has been renewed by Congress 15 times with little or no controversy, Maloney’s office said in a news release.

But the charter is set to expire in September, and some House Republicans have called for the bank to be closed down. They have called the bank an example of crony capitalism, according to published reports.

U.S. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said last weekend that the government should not be involved in financing exports and the responsibility should be handed to the private sector, according to published reports.

Maloney said closing the bank would be extremely damaging.

“The Export Import Bank has supported more than a million private-sector American jobs since 2009, but some in Congress are refusing to extend the banks charter,” Maloney said in a news release.

Maloney says Federal Reserve should “go slow” on interest rate increases

MARKETWATCH - WSJ

New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney says the Federal Reserve should “go slow” on interest rate increases because the U.S. economy is still recovering.

That’s one thing the second-highest-ranking Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee plans to say Wednesday when Federal Reserve ChairwomanJanet Yellen gives her second day of monetary policy testimony. Yellen testifies before the panel at 10 a.m.

In a brief interview with MarketWatch, Maloney said she wants to know more about the Fed’s policies for winding down its economic stimulus for the U.S. economy. She said she wants to know what happens between October — when the Fed plans to end quantitative easing — and the third quarter of 2015, when some economists believe the Fed will begin raising interest rates.

“What other tools are in their basket?” Maloney asked.

Dying to be tan: Maloney's bill targets cancer-causing dangers

WPIX-TV

NEW YORK  – Tanning culture, influenced strongly by reality television and movie stars, banks of people paying for that perfect glow.

But what is becoming increasingly clear is that color-seeking customers are buying into the $5 billion-a-year business and paying for it with their lives.

Two years ago, Sharell Paul, 31, was diagnosed with stage 3C melanoma, just shy of incurable stage 4 cancer.

“I started tanning in high school, off and on, for prom,” Paul said. “Tanning salons told me it was good for me.”

The fair-skinned redhead believed her 25 tanning sessions a year kept her from getting sunburned at the beach, until she noticed a small mole had changed and grown to about the size of a Skittle.

...The World Health Organization has dubbed these sunbeds cancer-causing devices, and the U.S. has instituted regulations to prevent underage tanners from getting into them, but some lawmakers and doctors say it’s not enough.

...Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney wrote the laws governing tanning bed usage in New York, and has just sponsored more legislation to make them illegal nationwide to anyone younger than 17.

“It’s the number one killer of young teenage women, melanoma. There is no cure for it.  We know that science has told us that is it caused by these tanning beds,”

    Stock Trade Bill Move Angers Dems

    Democrats aren’t taking House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s takedown of Rep. Spencer Bachus lightly.

    Following a POLITICO report earlier Thursday that Cantor forced Bachus, the House Financial Services Committee chair, to reverse course on legislation that would crack down on congressional insider trading, the bill’s top backers lashed out at Cantor’s decision to pressure Bachus to back down.

    “I was completely surprised and taken aback to find that the Republican leadership had yanked it off the agenda and stopped the process from going forward,” Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) said. “This is something that 99 percent of the Americans agree [with] completely.”

    On Tuesday, Bachus called for a Dec. 14 markup on the STOCK Act, which would explicitly bar insider trading among members of Congress and federal workers. The bill, which stands for “Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge,” languished in obscurity before a “60 Minutes” investigation in November propelled it onto committee agendas and to more than 200 co-sponsors.

    Interns of the Week

    JORDAN


    Jordan first got involved with the Maloney campaign because he thought it “would be a great way to learn about the election process and make a tangible difference.”  Jordan wanted to work for Carolyn because her political philosophies strongly mirror his own. And, “her work to help find a cure for Parkinson’s Disease, as a co-founder of the Congressional Working Group on Parkinson's Disease, personally resonates with me, as I have an uncle who passed away from Parkinson’s and another uncle who suffers from Parkinson’s Disease.”  Jordan would like to see Carolyn re-elected because “her policies truly reflect the needs of the middle class. Whether it’s expanding health care, fighting for benefits for first responders, or passing the Credit CARD Act, Carolyn is always thinking of her constituents, rather than caving to the interests of the elite. As an experienced congresswoman who has served almost two decades in the House, Carolyn knows how to get things done and has shown again and again her ability to do so.”  The first thing Jordan did on the campaign was knock on doors and help with the petitioning process.  Although he was a bit nervous, Jordan quickly realized that his "unease was unfounded."  Jordan likes working for the Maloney campaign because he enjoys getting to know the other interns, as well as the constituents. There are so many diverse people from different backgrounds in Carolyn’s district whom he would never have the opportunity to meet.

     


     

    SHIRLEY

     

    Shirley wants to see Carolyn re-elected because “Carolyn has been relentlessly fighting for the well-being of New Yorkers. Her accomplishments have improved the lives of many Americans with her strong beliefs ranging from consumer rights to healthcare reform. As someone with both the experience and the energy, Carolyn deserves to continue representing her district.”  Shirley got involved in the campaign because, as a lifelong New Yorker, she believes it is extremely important to be an informed citizen. “Participating in the democracy that is America is a responsibility that I have, and a great way to begin the process was to get involved in a political campaign.”  The first thing Shirley did for the campaign was make phone calls to voters in the district.  She loves her work because the campaign team is so enthusiastic.  “It is amazing to meet such diverse supporters of Carolyn, not only on the campaign, but all across the district. I love working with every one of the interns and interacting with them on a daily basis has made work both progressive and enjoyable.”  Between now and Primary Day, Shirley is going to help Carolyn win by knocking on doors, making phone calls, and spreading the word about Carolyn’s accomplishments and the importance of being an informed New Yorker.         

     


                                                                                                                                                            

     

    PETER


    Brian wants Carolyn to be re-elected because she never stops fighting for New Yorkers.  He got involved in the Maloney campaign because he thought “it would be a good experience and wanted to do more with my life.”  The first thing he did for the campaign was talk to voters in Long Island City.  The thing he likes best about working on the Maloney campaign is meeting and talking to other supporters of Carolyn.  He also likes how he goes to many new places that he wouldn’t have known about otherwise.  Brian is going to help Carolyn win between now and Primary Day by continuing to work hard on her behalf.       

     


     

    YULIYA 

    Yuliya wants Carolyn to be re-elected because “Carolyn Maloney has done everything in her power to help New Yorkers during the past eighteen years, including writing vital legislation to make the lives of her constituents better. Carolyn will not stop fighting for New Yorkers in the future and thus should remain the Congresswoman in this district.”  She got involved in the Maloney campaign because she wanted to learn the basics of how a campaign is run and thought “what better way than in a campaign where the candidate has done so much for her constituents.”  The first thing Yuliya did for the Maloney campaign was participate in the Fireworks in Astoria event where she helped with the petitioning process to put Carolyn’s name on the ballot.  “It was a great first event because I saw right away the immense support Carolyn had throughout her District.”  The thing she likes best about working for the Maloney campaign is “knowing that I am a direct link between the Congresswoman and her constituents. It is a great feeling to share Carolyn’s numerous accomplishments for New York directly with her voters.”  Between now and Primary Day Yuliya will work to re-elect Carolyn by “communicating with as many voters as possible, by making phone calls and by knocking on doors, to tell them about the things Carolyn has achieved for them and the importance of their support in the September 14th Primary.”
