    Senate Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) signaled Wednesday she will not amend a 2008 human trafficking law with the emergency spending bill addressing the Texas border crisis. Mikulski also questioned Republican calls to deploy the National Guard to help secure the Southern border. She argued the 2008 William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Act did not cause the surge of unaccompanied minors from Central America, as some critics contend. Instead, she said gang violence in Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador and human smugglers known as coyotes are to blame. “Our problem is not the children. Our problem is what causes...
  • Mikulski Addresses $4B Budget Gap With Gimmicks

    ABC News ^ | May 22, 2014 | By ANDREW TAYLOR, AP
    The Democratic chairwoman of the powerful Senate Appropriations Committee moved aggressively Thursday to use gimmicks to fill in an unexpected $4 billion gap in the budget. Mikulski's maneuver came after congressional scorekeepers surprised lawmakers by predicting that the Federal Housing Administration will produce $4 billion less in revenues from the mortgages it insures than the administration believes. Sen. Richard Shelby said Mikulski's maneuvering amounted to an end run around a December budget pact between Senate Budget Committee Chairman Patty Murray, D-Wash., and House Budget Chair Paul Ryan, R-Wis. that replaced some automatic cuts to agency operating budgets with new fees...

    Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) wants us to know she's mad - angry, outraged, even - that her Senate colleagues didn't pass her Paycheck Fairness Act today. The bill failed to gain cloture by a vote of 53 to 44. "I'll tell you what I'm tired of hearing," she yelled, "that somehow or other we're too emotional when we talk." "To simply get a bill on the Senate floor, we have to vote on a motion to proceed on whether we're going to take it up. And because this is now going to take a 60 vote majority, because of the...

Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) called into MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports on Friday after the Senate voted for a cloture motion to move forward with a resolution which would fund the government. She lashed out at the ‘tea baggers’ in Congress who have mounted an effort to defund the Affordable Care Act through the continuing resolution process. Mitchell began by asking Mikulski why the vote to move forward with a CR was happening on Friday rather than Thursday night. “The reason Ted Cruz stood...

    WASHINGTON, DC - President Barack Obama signed a spending bill, HR 933, into law, the "Monsanto Protection Act," that strips federal courts of the authority to immediately halt the planting and sale of genetically modified (GMO) seed crop regardless of any consumer health concerns. "The provision would strip federal courts of the authority to halt the sale and planting of an illegal, potentially hazardous GE crop while the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) assesses those potential hazards," explains a letter to the House that has been signed by dozens of food businesses and retailers, as well as interest groups and...

    Congressional Democrats are set to meet with President Barack Obama on Thursday evening at the White House, and if it’s anything like the “volcanic” intraparty sessions that took place earlier in the day, it could be quite the contentious affair. Senate Democrats were huddled for lunch with Jacob Lew, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, when news broke of a possible deal between Obama and Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio). The reports of the “grand bargain” — potentially worth $3 trillion in savings over 10 years with no upfront revenue raisers — started filtering into the Mansfield Room,...

    WASHINGTON – Millions of women stand to gain free access to a broad menu of birth control methods, thanks to a recommendation issued Tuesday by health experts advising the government. An Institute of Medicine panel recommended that the government require health insurance companies to cover birth control for women as preventive care, without copayments. Contraception — along with such care as diabetes tests during pregnancy and screening for the virus that causes cervical cancer — was one of eight recommended preventive services for women. "Unintended pregnancies carry health consequences for the mother — psychological, emotional and physical — and also...

Jim Rutledge is the candidate running for Senate who has all those vital qualities that are essential to running a successful campaign against the governing class.

    Longtime Maryland Democratic Senator Barbara Mikulski continues to hold a double-digit lead over the best-known of her 11 Republican challengers. A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Maryland Voters finds that Mikulski earns 55% of the vote, while Eric Wargotz, a doctor and county commissioner, gets 39% support.

In February, Mikulski earned 54% support when matched against an unnamed generic Republican candidate who won 36% of the vote. Both parties will pick their Senate...

    Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski (D-Md.) will "officially" kick off her 2010 re-election bid on Friday with a statewide tour that lasts through the weekend, her campaign announced Wednesday. The tour will take Maryland's senior senator to Baltimore and Allegany, Montgomery, Frederick, Prince George's and Washington counties.

Martin O'Malley and Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. Mikulski's desire to seek another term has hardly been a secret. Last month, she hosted a gathering to celebrate the "grand opening" of her...

Washington D.C., Dec 6, 2009 / 04:32 am (CNA).- A pro-life leader has criticized the Senate’s addition of the Mikulski Amendment to the proposed health care bill, voicing concerns that the provision’s sponsor herself has admitted it would fund some of Planned Parenthood’s services. The amendment’s required coverage of “preventive care” could also include abortions.

    At a committee hearing last week, Democratic Sen. Barbara Mikulski of Maryland provided a classic example of a morally bankrupt legislator seeking to insidiously force Americans to cooperate with and fund an objectively evil cause. On Thursday, July 9, the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee met to consider amendments to the legislation it is drafting to rearrange the entire U.S. health care system. While chairing the hearing, Mikulski offered an obscurely worded, two-part amendment. The first part required literally all health insurance companies in America to provide unspecified "preventive care and screenings" for "pregnant women and individuals of...

That agreement would allow Specter to leap past senior Democrats on powerful panels — including the Appropriations and Judiciary committees. “I won’t be happy if I don’t get to chair something because of Arlen Specter,” said...

Bob Corker (R-TN) was more circumspect, saying only that "we're digging in to understand this issue." Sanders' and Mikulski's statements are reminiscent of Al Gore's movie, An Inconvenient Truth, which contains a montage showing much of Florida disappearing as Greenland melts away.

    What was your favorite thing to do as a kid? "I enjoyed being a Girl Scout. We were taught that we could be anything we wanted to be, and that helped build our self-esteem. We were taught to respect ourselves and that no dream was too big and no goal unattainable. The friendships I developed with other girls in my troop were very important to me growing up. I knew I could count on them, and they could count on me." What did you want to be when you were younger? Did you always want to be a Senator? "When...

    Welcome to the "Checklist for Change" website! As the nine Democratic women in the U.S. Senate, my colleagues and I believe that it is time for a change in Washington: change in agenda, change in tone, and change in direction. That's what our "checklist for change" is all about. This is what we women do - we need our checklists. And we challenge Majority Leader Bill Frist to make the issues on our checklist priorities for the American people this year. This is by no means a complete list of priorities, but these are challenges that Congress can meet right...

    Court nominee Samuel Alito has the confirmation vote of at least one Senate Democrat but several other Democrats said Wednesday they had lingering questions about the nominee and will vote against him. Before Senate Democrats met to discuss the nomination, Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., emerged from a morning meeting with Alito and said he would vote against President Bush's Supreme Court nominee as too far outside the mainstream of judicial thinking. "He's just not right for Montana, he's just not right for America," Baucus said. "He's very polished and he answered all of the questions I was going to ask....

    Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. criticized yesterday Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley, a rival in the governor's race, for praising a surreptitious Internet user who lured an Ehrlich aide into circulating rumors about the mayor's personal life. Speaking on his bimonthly WBAL radio show, Ehrlich said MD4Bush, the screen name of an anonymous visitor to a conservative Web site, discussed rumors about O'Malley and insulted Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski, and should not be applauded. On Friday, O'Malley, a Democrat, said he wanted to thank MD4Bush for helping expose the role of an Ehrlich aide in talking about the mayor's personal life....

    The people supporting Harriet Miers' Supreme Court nomination, who started out looking defensive, have acquired symptoms of outright desperation. Rather than strain themselves with the impossible task of justifying the appointment, they are now on the attack. They claim the critics oppose Miss Miers just because she's a woman. In truth, Miss Miers' sex was one of her two attractions for the president -- the other being her canine worship of him. But the complaints about her weak credentials would be made even if she had testosterone coming out of her ears. Miss Miers, after all, is by any standard...
