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 calls for immediate action on Medicaid funding for Puerto Rico
PHILADELPHIA --- Congressman Robert A. Brady (D., PA) says, “Medicaid funding for Puerto Rico must be a top priority and it must be immediate.” In a letter to Speaker Ryan, Brady and 73 House members stress that legislation must be enacted immediately to ensure full fiscal year financing for 2018 to avoid expiration of funding that could result in more than one million Puerto Ricans losing Medicaid coverage. The letter warns, “Congress’ failure to address this funding gap will not only exacerbate Puerto Rico’s already fragile fiscal condition but will deny health coverage to nearly one million residents on the island.” In addition, Brady and his fellow House members say, “Not addressing the ‘cliff’ will result in additional outmigration to the mainland, where the cost of providing Medicaid is much greater than on the island. “We are gravely concerned about the implications of the “cliff” and, for this reason, believe that it must have Congress’ full attention.
Congressman Brady's statement about the U.S. strikes against the Syrian government
PHILADELPHIA  – Today, House Armed Services Committee Member Bob Brady (D-PA) released the following statement about the U.S. strikes against the Syrian government: “After seeing the photos of children killed in the chemical attack, it is hard to disagree with the President’s decision to retaliate and strike the air base in Syria. The base, where U.S. officials say the Syrian military planes that dropped the chemicals took off from. But, the President should have conferred with Congress. He should have reached out and asked for support from our allies. Going it alone does not work in today’s world. And, he must come to Congress for all and any approval in the future.”
