As House and Senate budget negotiators look for ways to lower deficits, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) introduced legislation on Thursday November 21, 2013 to eliminate tax loopholes and subsidies that support the oil, gas and coal industries.
Rep. Ellison joined Ed Shultz on “The Ed Show” to discuss the Affordable Care Act, and the states that have expanded on it. “Because our state and out legislature and the people of our state insisted they had an alternative to the bad old days, it’s working. In states where they sabotage it, it’s not work as well.”
Opposition by U.S. Reps. Keith Ellison, Betty McCollum and bipartisan swath of Congress to Defense Department dealings with the Russian arms export agency Rosoboronexport helped block the purchase of helicopters bound for Afghanistan’s national security forces.
U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison is among a group of Senate and House Democrats teaming with the White House on a campaign to tout benefits of the Affordable Care Act. The White House and Democratic allies will highlight a potential benefit of President Obama’s health care law each day, aiming to remind voters of elements that Democrats say would disappear if Republican repeal efforts are successful.
Congressman Ellison joins the Powerhouse Roundtable on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos” on Sunday December 1. Keith is joined by Tom Cole, Peggy Noonan and David Plouffe. Discussion topics include Obamacare Deadline Day, Pope Francis’ critique of capitalism and the Obama family’s post-presidential plans.
