“My view is this is the greatest economic challenge to face the country today — that there are jobs that just don’t pay enough money,” DeLauro said. “We have a situation where we have seen wages stagnant for the last 30 or so years and what has happened is that families really are struggling today.”
From punishing companies that use off-shore tax shelters and pushing food safety standards to dangling tax credits to those who surrender assault weapons, DeLauro’s agenda has ingratiated her with the 3rd Congressional District.
DeLauro stopped in Ansonia Thursday to announce she plans to introduce legislation that, if passed, would direct federal officials to do a study on whether 14 municipalities should be designated a new “Naugatuck River Valley National Heritage Area.”
Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro spoke Friday morning about the integrity of the election process.
DeLauro wants to expand the benefits that Americans have earned through Social Security, cut taxes for millions of seniors, and ensure the system remains solvent through the end of the century.
DeLauro outlined just how big of an impact this project will have for the City of New Haven. “It transforms the old Route 34 highway into a walkable street grid that connects the downtown, the medical district, the hill, Union Station and, as the Mayor pointed out, 10 acres of developable land.”
DeLauro said pharmaceutical company executives have been raking in millions at the expense of working families, sick people and children.
“Sikorsky equips our military with the tools that they need to protect our company and we are lucky to have them in our state,” said U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro. “To all the hard working men and women of Sikorsky this is not possible without your high quality work.”
“The agreement is undemocratic in its drafting, undemocratic in its contents and it cannot be passed during an unaccountable lame duck period,” DeLauro said.
DeLauro is at the forefront of an effort to override President Obama’s veto of a bill that would help the families of the victims of the September 11th attacks sue Saudi Arabia.
