Americans Deserve Free and Fair Trade

2019/01/20

Dear Friends,

I hope your weekend is going well. I wanted to take a moment to give you a quick update on some important legislation to help make our nation's economy more competitive in the international marketplace.


Trade Only Works If It's Free AND Fair

American workers, farmers, and manufacturers are the hardest working and most productive people in the world. And if they're given a level playing field, they can compete and win against anyone in the world.

Unfortunately, America has made trade agreements that allow other countries to put massive tariffs on our products without any repercussions. For example:

  • China puts a 25% tariff on American automobiles, but America only imposes a 2.5% tariff on automobiles from China.
  • European Union puts a 68.2% tariff on American butter, but America only imposes a 2.8% tariff on butter from the European Union.
  • India puts a 100% tariff on American motorcycles, but America only imposes a 2.4% tariff on motorcycles from India.

These are massive differences for our workers, farmers, and manufacturers.

Why would any foreign country voluntarily come to the bargaining table to make trade more free and fair if they are at such an advantage? 

They haven't. And they won't without pressure to change their ways.

That's why later this week, I plan to introduce the U.S. Reciprocal Trade Act, which would give the President the tools necessary to pressure other nations to lower their tariffs and stop taking advantage of America.

This is an important note: the goal of the U.S. Reciprocal Trade Act is NOT to raise America’s tariffs but rather to encourage the rest of the world to lower theirs. 

Strong checks and balances on the executive branch are important as well. Such checks on the executive's power include a three-year sunset provision, an override provision, full consultations with Congress, and a public comment period.

The American people deserve FREE and FAIR trade, and the Reciprocal Trade Act will be an important step in achieving that goal.

Dear Friends,

There has been a lot going on in our neck of the woods of Wisconsin, and I wanted to take a moment to share some of the latest news with you!


Top Five In The Nation...Number One In Our Hearts

There are a lot of reasons to be proud to be from Wisconsin; it's hands down the best place to work, raise a family, or vacation in the country.

But we're also leaders when it comes to Christmas tree production! That means that Wisconsin continues to bring joy to families across the country this season.

Click HERE or the image below to celebrate Wisconsin's proud Christmas tree production!


Our Nation Deserves Border Security

At my recent townhall meeting at Northcentral Technical College in Antigo, I discussed the need for our nation to have a secure border. 

There are too many families across our nation who have lost loved ones because of the meth and heroin that pours over our southern border.

In fact, at a recent Law Enforcement Roundtable, Wisconsin law enforcement leaders told me that even though our state is more than 1,000 miles away from Mexico, more than 90% of the meth and heroin in our community can be traced back to Mexico.

This is unacceptable. Click HERE to watch a short interview with Eau Claire's Channel 18 about the need for border security.


More Town Halls!

Not only did we have a productive townhall meeting in Antigo, but it was great to chat with folks in Eagle River and Medford as well. It's important that we routinely get the opportunity to discuss the issues face to face.

Update For You

December 14, 2018

 

Dear Friends,

I hope you're having a wonderful week. Before you start your weekend, I wanted to take a quick moment to update you on what's going on in Wisconsin.


Town Hall Time!

I say it all the time because it's true: our government works best when we can directly communicate with each other. That's why I believe in-person town halls are so important.

I recently held four in northern Wisconsin, and I'm glad we got the opportunity to discuss issues of the day. It was great to see so many of you at our town halls in Mercer, Rhinelander, Florence, and Crandon.

Click HERE or the image below to see coverage of the recent town halls from NBC 12.

 

Thank A Cop Today

Even while we are getting ready for the opportunity to spend time with friends and family this Christmas season, our local cops are still out there every day to keep us safe. 

Please take a moment to thank a local cop today for all that they do for our communities! I was fortunate to chat with the team from the Oneida County Sheriff's Office at my recent town hall.

December 5, 2018

 

Dear Friends,


On Friday, November 30, our 41st President, George H.W. Bush, died at the age of 94.

President Bush was an incredible man who dedicated his entire life to serving our country. He served as a naval aviator in World War II. He was a man of faith, humility, and undying optimism for our nation's future.

Rachel and I continue to pray for the Bush family and friends. May the Lord may comfort them in this time of mourning.

His funeral can be viewed LIVE by clicking HERE. It begins at 10am central today. 


I wanted to share with you a few touching moments from the last few days, as America honors the memory of a great man.

Wisconsin Deserves To Manage Its Gray Wolf Population

The House of Representatives recently passed my legislation to delist the gray wolf and to put its population management in the control of states. Like most parts of our government, things work better when handled at a local level- not by Washington bureaucrats.

I'd like to thank my Republican and Democrat colleagues for supporting this important reform, because Wisconsin farmers deserve to protect their livestock.

Let's dive into some of the latest news in Wisconsin.

Good Luck Wisconsin Hunters!

Gun deer season has just kicked off here in Wisconsin, and it goes until the 25th of November. Click HERE for 2018's regulations from the Wisconsin DNR.

Time To Use A Science-Based Approach To Wolf Management

Before Friday's vote on my bipartisan legislation, the Manage Our Wolves Act, I spoke on the House floor in support of the bill. 

It gives management of the gray wolf population to our states, who are far more in tune in with their local ecosystem than bureaucrats in Washington.

I'd like to thank my Republican and Democrat colleagues for supporting this important reform, because Wisconsin farmers deserve to protect their livestock.

Duffy’s Legislation to Delist the Gray Wolf Passes House

2018/11/16

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Friday, November 16 2018

Mark Bednar202-738-0744

 

Duffy’s Legislation to Delist the Gray Wolf Passes House

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Wisconsin Congressman Sean Duffy, Chairman of the Financial Services Subcommittee on Housing & Insurance, today spoke on the House floor in support of his legislation to delist the gray wolf. The Manage Our Wolves Act then passed the House in a bipartisan manner, 196-180.

 

Click HERE or the image below for his entire remarks.

 

 

 

Below are excerpts of Congressman Duffy’s remarks:

 

 

This is a bill that's bipartisan and a time where I don't think we see a lot of bipartisanship. And I think the reason you see Democrats and Republicans coming together, and actually the house and senate coming together on this bill, is because if you live in the northern part of the United States, you know, Great Lakes and west, you understand that the wolves are a huge problem. And that's why you've seen Democrat senators from this region, Democrat Congressmen from this region and Republicans, too, standing together to say, ‘hey, listen, we have to manage these wolves.’

 

And so if you live in the suburbs of Washington DC, it's not a problem. If you live in Madison, Wisconsin, it's not really a problem. You can make the argument that, the pretty little puppy of the wolf, it's so pretty and beautiful and we have to protect it. We did protect it. We put it on the endangered species list. [Un]like a lot of government programs, this one worked. And we have protected them and allowed them to recover. We have three times as many gray wolf as was projected to be necessary to take them off the endangered species list.

 

“We're coming to hunting season in Wisconsin right now, so a lot of us Wisconsinites put on their blaze orange and get their guns and go out to the woods and hunt deer. I have never seen a picture of Barack Obama in blaze orange and his rifle to go out and hunt deer. Not a great outdoorsman, I don’t think. But Barack Obama's administration was the one to first to take the gray wolf off the endangered species list. And Donald Trump, too, agrees. Donald Trump and Barack Obama agree on an issue? They do on gray wolves!

 

….

 

“If you live in Wisconsin, especially northern Wisconsin, it might be necessary for us to actually manage this population because it's good for the environment. It's good for the wolves. It's good for the cattle. It's actually really good for our deer population. And so I just think this just makes common sense.”

 

 

“Frankly, I believe that our states are far more in tuned in understanding the ecosystem of their state than Bureaucrats in Washington.”

 

“So I would far rather empower Wisconsin and my good friend, Collin Peterson from Minnesota. Let Minnesota manage the populations because they understand that ecosystem better. I would encourage all of my colleagues to join Barack Obama, and join Donald Trump, and join a few members of Congress from Minnesota, and Wisconsin, and Washington and senators as well, to allow us to successfully manage our gray wolf population which allows for a healthier ecosystem.”

 

Background:

 

Management of these gray wolves was transferred from the state to the federal level following two 2014 U.S. District Court decisions that reinstated gray wolves under the protections of the Endangered Species Act. These designations leave farmers and ranchers in those states without a legal avenue to protect their livestock from wolves.

Dear Friends,

I hope you're all having a good week. There are a few things going on in Wisconsin I'd like to take a moment to share with you. 

If You Love Your Freedom, Thank A Vet!

Even though Veterans Day was officially recognized earlier this week, we should all continue to take the time out of our busy day to thank America's veterans. They put on the uniform to ensure that the United States of America is the most free, most prosperous nation in history. Whether you're out and about at the gas station or grocery store, if even for a second, say thanks to a vet!
