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. The Congressman said he has written to Gov. Corbett and asked him to reconsider implementation of the asset test. “As most of this in ...


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 introduces legislation to expand Federal hate crime laws for the LGBT community
Philadelphia --- Spurred by a recent attack in Philadelphia where two men were assaulted and called homophobic slurs for their perceived sexual orientation, Congressman Bob Brady (D., PA) today has introduced legislation that would expand the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act. The Brady legislation is designed to provide greater protections in all circumstances, not just those that involve interstate or foreign commerce. "Because Pennsylvania’s hate-crime law does not protect those attacked due to their sexual orientation, the assailants could not be charged with a hate crime. This is a travesty," Brady said. "Since Pennsylvania is one of the 14 states that has no law against hate crimes committed based on sexual orientation, this bill would fill an important gap and protect all Americans from these vicious crimes." Passed in 2009, the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act expanded U.S. federal hate-crime protections to victims
Congressman Brady re-elected Ranking Member (minority chair) of the Committee on House Administration
PHILADELPHIA --- Congressman Robert A. Brady (D., PA.) has been re-elected Ranking Member (minority chair) of the Committee on House Administration for the 114th Congress.   At a Democratic Caucus meeting at 3:00 pm, November 19, Congressman Brady was nominated by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and unanimously approved by the Democratic Caucus. Congressman Brady is the first Philadelphian to serve as either chairman or Ranking Member of a full committee since the late Congressman Bill Gray in the 99th and 100th Congress.   The Committee oversees nearly $1 billion in Congressional spending, as well as the Capitol Police Department, Capitol Visitors Center, the National Zoo and the Smithsonian Museums.
Congressman Brady announces legislation to expand Federal law for hate crimes on sexual orientation and gender identity
Philadelphia --- Congressman Bob Brady (D., PA) has announced that he will introduce legislation to amend Title 18 of the U.S. Code to expand Federal hate crimes protections for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. Under this new legislation, any hate crime committed based on sexual orientation or gender identity would be prosecutable under federal law, even if the crime did not involve interstate commerce. Nationally, in 2011, the FBI reported 1,553 crimes based on a person’s actual or perceived LGBT status and the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs documented 25 homicides motivated by an anti-LGBT bias. And, the Congressman has also called on state lawmakers to make changes in the state’s hate crime law, so that prosecutors have the mechanisms necessary to obtain harsh convictions for violent crimes against members of the LGBT community. "The recent gay bashing in downtown Philadelphia, in what I consider to be a hate-crime, has no place in our fine
Congressman Brady lauds USPS for honoring NBA Hall of Famer Wilt Chamberlain with a commemorative stamp
PHILADELPHIA --- Congressman Robert A. Brady (D., PA) today had high praise for the decision by the U.S. Postal Service to issue a commemorative postage stamp honoring NBA Hall of Famer Wilt Chamberlain’s record setting career. Chamberlain’s career includes 14 years in the NBA playing for Philadelphia/San Francisco Warriors, the Philadelphia 76ers and the Los Angeles Lakers. In 1962, Chamberlain became the only NBA player to score 100 points in a single game. Brady, who introduced a resolution in support of a Chamberlain stamp three years ago said, "I am feeling very good right now to know that Wilt’s career is being honored with this stamp. It was a long time coming, but the wait and the struggle have been worth it." In a 2011 letter urging the Postmaster General to consider naming a stamp after Chamberlain, the Congressman said, "I believe honoring Wilt Chamberlain with a commemorative stamp would be a more than appropriate way to celebrate his legendary career and athletic ac
