Does Sean Patrick Maloney Want to Give ISIS a Break?
 
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama has vetoed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), a vital bill that authorizes funding for our national defense, but Sean Patrick Maloney has yet to make a peep in protest. If Sean Patrick Maloney does not stand up to the President’s veto, our allies battling ISIS could lose vital security assistance, leaving ISIS free to expand.
 
“By staying silent while President Obama plays politics with our national security, Sean Patrick Maloney is opening the door to a more unstable Middle East,” said NRCC Communications Director Katie Martin. “Sean Patrick Maloney needs to put politics aside and override President Obama’s dangerous veto of this bill.”
 
The NDAA is critical in ensuring that the men and women of our military and their families receive the funding they have rightfully earned. The bill also includes a provision authorizing funding for vital security assistance to Iraqi, Syrian, and Jordanian forces fighting ISIS.
 
The NDAA passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 270 to 156.  It passed the Senate by a vote of 70 to 27.

Maloney Announces Key Transportation Measures in House Surface Transportation Bill
 
Maloney’s Work on Public-Private Partnerships, Highway-Rail Grade Crossing and Safe Bridges Provisions All Included in STRRA
 
Washington, DC — Following today’s mark-up of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee’s Surface Transportation Reauthorization and Reform Act of 2015 (STRRA), Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) announced several of his major legislative measures will be included in the bill. Maloney’s Public-Private Partnership Infrastructure Investment Act, Highway-Rail Grade Crossing Safety Act of 2015, and Safe Bridges Investment Act were all included in the base text of the bill. Maloney, seen as one of the top Public Private Partnership (P3) experts in Congress, has been fighting for these priorities for the past year which will improve the Hudson Valley’s infrastructure, grow the economy, and enhance the safety of commuters and travelers in New York.
 
“Since day one, I’ve worked across the aisle with local, state, and federal officials to make these critical investments in infrastructure that strengthen our communities, grow our economy, and create jobs. The provisions I authored in this legislation continue that commitment to delivering results for the Hudson Valley,” said Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney. “I’m happy that these provisions have been included because each of them will make life better for my friends and neighbors in the Hudson Valley.”
 
“When I was working in the Governor’s office and in the private sector, I spearheaded initiatives to develop Public-Private Partnerships, because these creative partnerships are a win-win; they allow us to make strategic investments in transportation and infrastructure while lowering costs for tax payers,” said Rep. Maloney. “This bill will unlock badly-needed resources to improve the roads, bridges and rail lines which New Yorkers rely on.”  
 
“As we saw earlier this year in the tragic Valhalla Metro-North accident, there are currently hundreds of high-hazard, dangerous rail crossings in New York that need significant improvements,” said Rep. Maloney. “My legislation included in this bill will invest in local communities, giving them the resources they need to upgrade and enhance the safety of rail crossings.”
 
“My provisions to invest in so-called ‘off-system’ bridges will unlock billions in federal investments to make critical repairs and improvements to the local bridges families in the Hudson Valley use every single day to get to school and work,” said Rep. Maloney. “These bridges have been forgotten for too long, we must do more to ensure their safety.”
 
Public-Private Partnership Infrastructure Investment Act
Maloney’s breakthrough Public-Private Partnership Infrastructure Investment Act would allow for faster and more efficient investment in crucial transportation and infrastructure projects around the country. In the past, public-private partnerships, known as P3s, have provided innovative funding solutions for infrastructure projects by linking public investments with private sector resources and efficiencies. 
 
In addition to serving on the exclusive Public-Private Partnership Panel for the House of Representatives Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Rep. Maloney has a long history fostering government and private sector cooperation.
 
Rep. Maloney’s bill would modernize and improve the coordination between the government and private sector by creating an office within the U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) to assist modal agencies, states, and other grant recipients on implementing design-bid-build, design-build, and P3 procurement best practices, developing P3 model contracts, and accessing federal loan and loan guarantee programs. By serving as a one-stop shop, this important resource will guarantee states like New York are able to better utilize P3s to improve and invest in their critical infrastructure.
 
Highway-Rail Grade Crossing Safety Act of 2015
The Highway-Rail Grade Crossing Safety Act of 2015 will help states and communities make safety upgrades at dangerous highway-rail grade crossings. Each year, nearly 270 people are killed at such grade crossings. This bill provides states and communities with more resources to prevent collisions at grade crossings and invest in protective safety devices to prevent future tragedies. By building bridges and tunnels to separate roadways from rail track, by installing improved lights and signals at crossings, and by increasing public awareness of grade crossing dangers, states and communities can take significant steps toward making highway-rail grade crossings safer.
 
Safe Bridges Investment Act
Maloney’s Safe Bridges Investment Act would provide counties and municipalities with the funds they desperately need to fix so-called “off-system” bridges. More than a third of New York’s bridges are labeled as either “functionally obsolete,” meaning they cannot handle current traffic demand, or “structurally deficient,” meaning they require significant maintenance to remain in service and will eventually require total rehabilitation.
 
Off-system bridges, bridges owned by counties or municipalities, were initially excluded from the federal National Highway System and thus from receiving federal funding. In 2012, a federal transportation bill called MAP-21 became law, eliminating the Highway Bridge Program, which shifted the program’s funding to the National Highway Performance Program (NHPP). However, funding for the National Highway Performance Program only supports projects on the National Highway System (NHS), which excludes 77% of the country’s bridges. 
 
Restricting these dollars for use on a very limited number of bridges is detrimental to the vast majority of our nation’s bridges.  Limiting this funding to the projects eligible under the National Highway Performance Program creates a disparity that endangers the safety of citizens in urban and rural communities across the county.  The bill would restore funding eligibility to these bridges regardless of their designation.
 
According to the New York State Department of Transportation, more than one-third of New York State’s 17,000 bridges are in need of repair, with 2,016 graded as structurally deficient and 4,735 graded as functionally obsolete.
 
In the Hudson Valley, there are a total of 1,904 bridges and of these, 206 are structurally deficient bridges and 749 are functionally obsolete bridges.

Maloney Statement on American Soldier Killed During ISIS Raid

Does Sean Patrick Maloney Want to Allow GITMO Terrorists on U.S. Soil?
 
WASHINGTON –President Barack Obama is threatening to veto the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) over bipartisan opposition to his plan to close GITMO and bring terrorists onto US soil, but Sean Patrick Maloney has refused to stand up to the President’s veto threat. President Obama has made it clear that he is willing to endanger necessary funding for our troops in order to fulfill his campaign promise of shuttering the Guantanamo Bay detention facility and transferring known terrorists to prisons in the United States.
 
“Sean Patrick Maloney knows the threats posed by the terrorists at GITMO, but has stood by silently while President Obama pushes to bring them onto U.S. soil,” said NRCC Communications Director Katie Martin. “Instead of fighting Obama’s veto threat of a vital defense bill that passed with bipartisan support, Maloney has chosen to remain on the sidelines while the President pulls out all the stops to bring these terrorists to America.”
 
The NDAA is critical in ensuring that the men and women of our military and their families receive the funding they have rightfully earned. It also includes a provision to prevent the President from closing U.S. facilities at Guantanamo Bay and transferring detainees to U.S. prisons. The Obama Administration is currently considering facilities at Fort Leavenworth in Leavenworth, Kansas; Naval Consolidated Brigs in Charleston, South Carolina, Chesapeake, Virginia, and Miramar, California; the Northwest Regional Correctional Facility at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Tacoma, Washington; and the federal Bureau of Prisons complex in Florence, Colorado.
 
The NDAA passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 270 to 156.  It passed the Senate by a vote of 70 to 27.

HILLARY'S BALLAD TO BERNIE

NY GOP Offers Exclusive Remake of John Legend's "All of Me" for Upcoming Birthday Bash

New York--October 23rd...While Democrats prepare to gather at Manhattan's Hilton Hotel this Sunday to celebrate the birthday of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton with guest performer John Legend, the New York Republican State Committee offered this exclusive remake of the crooner's top hit "All of Me" entitled "Hillary's Ballad to Bernie."


"Hillary's Ballad to Bernie" 
to 
the tune of "All of Me"
 

[Verse 1:]

What would I do without your smart mouth
Defending me one minute, on the trail hanging me out
You've got my head spinning, no kidding, I can't push you down
What's going on in that socialist mind
Your popularity has me in a bind
And I'm so dizzy, don't know what hit me, but I'll be alright

[Pre-Chorus:]
My polls are under water
But I know I'll be fine
You're crazy and I'm really good at lyin'

[Chorus:]
'Cause all of me
Hates all of you
Hate your followers and all your rhetoric
Your Lefty policies are pathetic
Give your all to me
'Cause it's meant to be
I've been planning this for decades
Stop causing all these headaches
I am the Democratic Queen Bee
It's time you give yourself to me

[Verse 2:]
How many times do I have to tell you
I really am a progressive too
The GOP is beating us down, I'm gonna carry us through
You're my compass, giving me cues
My worst distraction, making me blue
I can't stop screaming, hand-wringing, I have it out for you

[Pre-Chorus:]
My polls are under water
But I know I'll be fine
You're crazy and I'm really good at lyin'

[Chorus:]
'Cause all of me
Hates all of you
Hate your followers and all your rhetoric
Your Lefty policies are pathetic
Give your all to me
'Cause it's meant to be
I've been planning this for decades
Stop causing all these headaches
I am the Democratic Queen Bee
It's time you give yourself to me


[Bridge:]
Give me all of you
Biden made the smart move, it's time you follow suit
Enough with the games, it's no longer cute

[Chorus:]
'Cause all of me
Hates all of you
Hate your followers and all your rhetoric
Your Lefty policies are pathetic
Give your all to me
'Cause it's meant to be
I've been planning this for decades
Stop causing all these headaches
I am the Democratic Queen Bee
It's time you give yourself to me

Give your all to me
'Cause it's meant to be, oh oh
