Shirley Kitchen and other elected officials and advocates in blasting Pennsylvania’s proposed asset test for recipients of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).“This proposed asset test will force families who are looking at poverty in the face choose between having a few dollars saved as a safety net and being able to feed their families,” the Congressman said.

A Quick Look at Bob Brady's 2011 FEC Reports

Normally I stay out of Philadelphia politics. When I was going over the quarterly FEC reports for the collar counties I dipped into the reports for Philadelphia’s congressional representatives. A few things surprised me so I’ve done a little more digging. Here are some observations on the reports from 1st district Congressman Bob Brady’s campaign, from the post-general 2010 election, year end 2010, first, second, and third quarter 2011 reports. To provide some context, I found a Dec. 20, 2010 article by Brad Bumstead and Mike Wereschagin in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, ...

Statewide Primaries Get Steamy

The big question is will we get a Democrat candidate from Eastern Pennsylvania or Western Pennsylvania in the high-stakes Attorney General race? The next two questions automatically follow. Will either Dan McCaffery or former Congressman Pat Murphy or Lackawanna’s Kathleen Kane get the nomination when the Democrat State Committee meets Jan. 14 to decide? The State’s Democrats from west of the Susquehanna always seem to be united when it comes to decisions such as this, though none of them has announced as of now. Obviously a powerful draw, Dan McCaffery showed he had the ...

Congressman Brady Joins Federal Lawsuit Challenging President Trump’s Violation of Constitution’s Anti-Corruption Clause
  PHILADELPHIA --- Congressman Bob Brady (D., PA) and 200 Members of Congress have filed a federal lawsuit against President Trump for violating one of the Constitution’s critical anti-corruption provisions: the Foreign Emoluments Clause.  The clause prohibits the President from accepting foreign payments without seeking and receiving Congressional authorization. “The Constitution’s Emoluments Clause is a major and vital guard against the corrupting influence of foreign governments.” said Congressman Brady. “The American people should have total confidence that the President is serving in their best interest, not to make him richer.  President Trump’s refusal to disclose or seek Congress’s authorization for his extensive foreign business interests is a blatant violation of the Constitution, and a danger to our democratic principles.  I am committed to using use every tool available to hold this President accountable to the Constitution and to the American people.” F
Congressman Brady selects artwork of Upper Darby High School senior for display in the 2017 Congressional High School Art Exhibition in the Capitol
PHILADELPHIA --- Congressman Robert A. Brady (D., PA) has selected the artwork of Blya Ange Krouba, a 12th grade student at Upper Darby High School to represent the First Congressional District in the 2017 Congressional High School Art Competition. Miss Krouba, who was born in Ivory Coast, Africa, says her mixed media artwork “Warning” was created after she was told she was too dark to be pretty. She says “Warning” expresses the complications of having a dark complexion but also “…focuses on black people being beautiful, unapologetic, strong, human and educated in our world.” The artwork presents a well-dressed African American man reading a book. “The book in his hand is a symbol of his education. The fence surrounding him symbolizes the negativity that tries to shun his intelligence. The figure is unbothered by the fence and it seems as if he broke right through it,” Miss Krouba explains. The piece will be displayed along with the artwork other young winners from ac
Congressman Brady says the appointment of a special counsel to oversee the Russia/Trump investigation is the right decision, but there’s still the need for an independent commission
Philadelphia ----  Congressman Bob Brady (D., PA) released the following statement after former FBI Director Robert Mueller III was appointed as special prosecutor: "Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein made the right decision in appointing a special counsel to oversee the investigation into Russia's interference in our presidential election.  While I trust the FBI to handle the investigation in a professional manner, the Trump administration tainted Rosenstein during the firing of Director Comey. I call on former Director Robert Mueller to conduct a thorough investigation on behalf of the American people. However, this appointment does not dismiss the need for an independent commission to investigate Russia’s attack on our electoral process.” Earlier today, Brady joined his Democratic colleagues in signing a discharge petition on the Swalwell-Cummings Protecting Our Democracy Act, which would establish the independent, outside commission. "The special counsel does not remove t
Congressman Brady says Trump withdrawal from Paris climate accord is irresponsible
  Philadelphia --- Congressman Bob Brady (D., PA) today released the following statement re President Trump’s announcement of America’s withdrawal from the Paris climate accord: “The announcement today By President Trump is short-sighted and a giant step backwards as he has now linked arms with Syria and Nicaragua and ignored the more than 190 nations who are part of the Paris accord. He has also ignored the views of the Pentagon who see climate change as a major national security issue. In defense of his action the president pulls out of our rapidly warming air false statistics that claim the withdrawal will help the American economy and the business sector. Today’s action was incredibly irresponsible, no matter how many times he states he is putting America first.”
