Duffy Leads Effort To Clarify Milk Definition

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Wisconsin Congressman Sean Duffy, co-chairman of the Congressional Dairy Farmers Caucus, today put forward bipartisan legislation in the House that requires the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to take enforcement action against manufacturers labeling plant-based beverages as milk. 

 

Duffy released the following statement on the legislation:

 

“You can’t milk an almond, and the FDA must clarify and enforce the definition of milk that’s already on the books, that milk comes from cows. Wisconsin dairy farmers and consumers across the country deserve this important clarification. I’m proud that both my Republican and Democrat colleagues have continued to pressure the FDA to fix this.”

Hero From Merrill

I wanted to pass along this post from the Merrill Police Department. It's the story of the heroic actions of a 13 year old named Michael Dickman. Quite the story!

"We had the privilege of recognizing 13 year old Michael Dickman this morning at Prairie River Middle School. On 02-21-19 at 7:28 am Michael was walking to school and heard someone yelling for help. Michael waded through the snow and found Lonnie Strauss had fallen off of a loading dock while clearing snow behind a building in a remote area of town, and was unable to get out of the deep snow. Michael attempted to help Mr. Strauss but the snow was too deep. Michael then attempted to waive cars down but was unable to get anyone to stop. He then went into the building and dialed 911. Officer Tesch who is pictured was one of the responders along with the Merrill Fire Department. Michael was awarded a Citizens Public Service Award for a lifesaving act. Michael was recognized by the entire 7th grade class at school. Michael happened to be walking by, but he acted when he was needed and possibly saved Mr. Strauss’s life as it is unknown when someone would have found him. The temperature that morning was 4 degrees and Mr. Strauss had been outside for approximately 2 hours when Michael heard him. Good job Michael!"

We Must Secure Our Border

With the most illegal border crossings on our border in over a decade, Democrats are in denial about the real crisis occurring there. We need physical barriers, boots on the ground, and the use of technology to help solve this problem.

Duffy Statement On Trump Administration’s Decision To Delist Gray Wolf

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Wisconsin Congressman Sean Duffy, Ranking Member of the Financial Services Subcommittee on Housing & Insurance, today released the following statement on the Department of Interior’s announcement that it will soon propose a rule to delist the gray wolf in the lower 48 states:

  

“It is encouraging that the Trump Administration is following in the footsteps of the Obama Administration in its efforts to allow Wisconsin to manage its gray wolf population. We know what’s better for our state’s ecosystem better than activist judges in Washington, and Wisconsin farmers deserve to be able to protect their livestock.”

Our Economy Is Strong

It's Not Just The High Price Tag

Right now, there are Democrats in Washington who advocate for a total government takeover of healthcare. This plan has been identified as costing $32 trillion over ten years (Click HERE for the NPR article where it's sourced). 

This price tag is out-of-control expensive, but that's not even the most dangerous part of this plan. It's the fact that private health insurance will be ripped away from millions of Americans.

February 23, 2019

 

Dear Friends,

I hope you're having a great Saturday. I wanted to share with you some important news happening in Wisconsin and around the nation.


Millions Of Job Openings In America

There are too many Democrats in DC who want to to give economic security for people who are "unwilling to work." While it's important that we take care of those most vulnerable in our society, we need to encourage people who are able to work to get a job. 

In fact, right now, we have 7.3 million job opportunities in this country! There are hundreds of thousands MORE job openings in America than there are unemployed Americans. We can't afford to have anyone on the sidelines. That's why I will continue to fight for policies that encourage people to work, and not for policies that discourage work.


Click HERE or the image below to share the news that there are more than seven million job opportunities in the U.S.

 

Majority Of Americans Optimistic About Their Economic Future

Pro-growth policies like lower taxes and smarter regulations help more families achieve the American Dream and more companies grow and hire workers. No wonder Americans are feeling confident about our growing economy! 

Nearly 7 in 10 Americans expect their finances to be even better next year (Those of you who are interested in the original Gallup poll, please click HERE).

Lets Put America First

2019/02/16

 

 

 
 

February 16, 2019

 

Dear Friends,

I hope you're having a good Saturday.

Earlier this week, the committee on which I serve, the House Financial Services Committee, held a hearing on how to address homelessness in America.

This is an important topic, and we must continue to have an active conversation to find solutions.

We should prioritize helping American citizens who truly need it. That's an idea that we should all be able to agree with. Unfortunately, there are many policymakers in the United States who prioritize massive programs for illegal immigrants over the needs of American citizens.

For example, in 2015 to 2016, Los Angeles County, California (just one county!) spent $1.3 BILLION on welfare payouts to illegal immigrants (source HERE).

If we have American citizens (many of whom are veterans) facing homelessness, why on earth should we spend a dime on things like welfare and legal aid for illegal immigrants instead of helping get our fellow Americans back on their feet?

Let's put Americans first. Click HERE or the image below to view a short video about this very point.

Duffy Introduces Bill To Improve Seniors’ Nursing Care

2019/02/14

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Thursday February 14, 2019

 

 

Duffy Introduces Bill To Improve Seniors’ Nursing Care

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Wisconsin Congressman Sean Duffy, ranking member of the Financial Services Subcommittee on Housing & Insurance, today introduced legislation to eliminate the mandatory Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) training lockout for Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF), and instead allow the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services to impose a lockout based on a substandard quality of care.

 

“As more Wisconsinites reach retirement age and live longer lives, it’s more important than ever that Skilled Nursing Facilities educate and sponsor new Certified Nursing Assistants to meet increased labor demands. I’m proud to introduce legislation to eliminate provisions within the Social Security Act that prevents Wisconsin seniors from receiving the highest quality of care from well-trained medical professionals.”

 

Background:

 

The CNA training lockout currently impacts nearly half of all SNFs in Wisconsin, while in some states that number exceeds 75% of facilities. As baby boomers continue to live longer and rely more heavily on non-familial methods of senior care like nursing homes, SNFs will need the ability to meet growing labor demands.

 

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) currently enforces a mandatory CNA training lockout for SNFs that are assigned Civil Monetary Penalties (CMP) exceeding roughly $10,000. This lockout is counterintuitive because it limits a SNFs ability to train new qualified staff, which can perpetuate a substandard quality of care if facilities are not able to recruit qualified nurses.

Dear Friends,


I hope that you are enjoying your Sunday. I wanted to take an opportunity to share with you some of the things going on both in Wisconsin and in Washington DC. 


Let's Make Our Trade Free And Fair

Our nation's workers, farmers, and manufacturers are the hardest-working, most innovative people on earth. When they have a level playing field, they win. Unfortunately, the current trading system is not a level playing field.

As a result, our economy has had to fight with one hand tied behind its back. Our workers and farmers deserve better. That's why I recently introduced the U.S. Reciprocal Trade Act to give the President the tools needed for our economy to compete in a global marketplace.

Click HERE or the image below to view a short clip from Spectrum News about why we need the Reciprocal Trade Act.


Let's Unite As Americans

Ever since I was first elected to Congress, I have been honored to attend the State of the Union. Most State of the Union addresses I have witnessed were delivered by President Obama, and even though I disagreed with him on several policy issues, I have always said it's important that we disagree without being disagreeable. 

Especially on the night of the State of the Union, we have an opportunity as Americans to unite behind common ideas that make our nation great. I'm hopeful that we can take that opportunity to heart as we engage in policy discussions throughout 2019 and beyond.

This year, I was lucky to have my amazing wife, Rachel, as my date to President Trump's address.
