Maloney Addresses Members of the Polish-American Community

At a breakfast hosted by the Polish Slavic Federal Credit Union, Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney participated in a lively discussion about issues and concerns facing the Polish-American community in Greenpoint/Williamsburg, and shared stories of her recent trips to Poland. In October, Maloney was asked by President Obama to lead the American delegation to Warsaw for the opening of the core exhibit at the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews. In February she was part of a delegation of members of Congress for the 69th Anniversary of the Liberation of Auschwitz.

Congresswoman Maloney discussed the importance of having Poland join the Visa Waiver Program, and legislative efforts to include Poland in the program. Community members drew her attention to the need for improvements at local parks, expressed concerns about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and what that means for Eastern Europe, and emphasized the need for more senior housing in the community.

Maloney Introduces Bill To Strip Ex-Nazis Of Social Security Benefits

Talking Points Memo

The Nazi Social Security Benefits Termination Act comes in response to an Associated Press investigation published in October that revealed millions of dollars in benefits have been paid to dozens of former Nazis who were forced out of the United States. At least four are alive, living in Europe on U.S. Social Security.

...Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., the bill's main sponsor, said she is hopeful the legislation will be taken up during the lame-duck session that will last until a new Congress begins in late January.

"Our bill will eliminate the loophole that has allowed Nazi war criminals to collect Social Security benefits," Maloney said in a statement. "We should work in a bipartisan and expeditious manner to terminate these benefits once and for all."

Maloney thanks voters for a 12th term in office

 

NEW YORK -- Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (NY-12) tonight was re-elected to a 12th term in office. She released the following statement thanking voters:

 

“It is a great honor to have been elected to serve for a 12th term in the United States House of Representatives. I believe that public service is a loan – one that must be repaid each and every day I have the privilege to serve. 

 

“Together we have accomplished great things. From the Credit Cardholders Bill of Rights that is saving consumers billions of dollars every year, to the Debbie Smith Act that helps put rapists behind bars using DNA evidence, we have shown that it is still possible for Washington to solve real problems. It’s something we proved again by passing the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act and by delivering billions for infrastructure investments like the 2nd Avenue Subway and the East Side Access. 

 

“I sincerely thank the people of Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens who have given me another opportunity to help address the pressing problems our city, state and nation continue to face. We have to pass common sense gun safety laws. We need common sense immigration reform now more than ever. It’s time to deliver equal pay for equal work, paid sick leave and a higher minimum wage. We need to invest in infrastructure, education and research and development. 

 

“The challenges are great and the priorities are many. I am hopeful that the next two years in Washington will not be a repeat of the past two. It’s time for Democrats and Republicans to work together for the good of the country and deliver the solutions that are so desperately needed.”

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.”
