GOP 'Sinful' To Tie Disaster Aid To Spending Cuts


As East Coasters brace for what some say will be a historic pummel by Hurricane Irene, at least one lawmaker is fuming over a requirement by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) that any potential emergency disaster aid be offset by spending cuts. "It is sinful to require us to cut somewhere ... in order to provide emergency disaster assistance for American citizens," Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.) told The Huffington Post on Friday. The Louisiana Democrat pointed out that this weekend is the sixth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, which devastated his district and cost the federal ...


Richmond and Cincinnati Mayor Mallory Blast Republicans


On a press conference call organized by the Democratic National Committee, Congressman Cedric Richmond (LA-2) and Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory blasted the GOP for their willingness to raise taxes on the middle class and the impact it would have on African Americans. Last year, President Obama lowered the payroll tax, benefitting 98% of Americans. The President wants to keep that rate low, but Republicans in Congress are opposed to the President's efforts and want to raise taxes on nearly 160 million Americans. This will have an adverse effect on African American families who have benefited ...


Richmond still owes more than $50,000 in campaign expenses


It goes without saying that a successful candidate owes a debt of gratitude to those who helped get him elected. In the case of freshman Rep. Cedric Richmond, D-New Orleans, it takes a more tangible form in the more than $50,000 he still owes to some of those consultants and others who worked on his past campaigns. Richmond's campaign debt of $51,277.82 as of the end of September includes $7,000 owed to Third Coast Research, a Chicago opposition research firm that went to work for one of his opponents when the Richmond campaign didn't pay its bill, and $1,446.50 owed to Deep South ...

Rep. Richmond Mourns the Passing of New Orleanian Antoine “Fats” Domino
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Cedric Richmond (LA-02) issued the following statement after the passing of Antoine “Fats” Domino, the lifelong New Orleans musician known as a founding father of rock ‘n’ roll: “Today, the city of New Orleans and the international community lost one of our favorite sons,” said Rep. Richmond. “Fats Domino’s many musical contributions will live on through generations of musicians to come. A pioneer celebrated on the international stage, Fats Domino never outgrew his beloved New Orleans. We loved him as much as he loved us.” “Today is truly a day that will go down in New Orleans history forever. Fats Domino was a beloved father, grandfather, and a true example of New Orleans culture personified. He will surely be missed by everyone. My sincere condolences and prayers are with the Domino family.”  
Rep. Richmond Urges Louisiana Senators to Protect Tax Credits Critical to Louisiana in Tax Bill
Stresses the importance of New Market Tax Credit and Historic Tax Credit   WASHINGTON – Yesterday, Rep. Cedric Richmond (LA-02) sent a letter to Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and Senator John Kennedy (R-LA) regarding the elimination of the New Market Tax Credit (NMTC) and Historic Tax Credit (HTC) in the Republican’s proposed tax plan. “The NMTC is an important program that provides a tax credit to individual and corporate investors who choose to invest in developments in low-income communities,” said Rep. Richmond. “Both the NMTC and HTC have a proven track record of increasing investment in targets communities, each returning $8 in private capital for every dollar of federal investment. One of my top priorities as Representative of the 2nd district is revitalizing and spurring economic development in North Baton Rouge, and the NMTC and HTC are key components to the plan we have developed.”  “While we may not agree on the overall package, we often agree on the issu
Rep. Richmond Votes Against National Flood Insurance Program Reauthorization
WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. Cedric Richmond (LA-02) released the following statement regarding today’s vote on H.R. 2874, the 21st Century Flood Reform Act, in the House of Representatives: “Simply put, this bill is bad for the people of Louisiana,” said Rep. Richmond. “My constituents aren’t living in mansions; they’re working people living in the same cities they grew up in, close to their jobs and families. So the cost of flood insurance matters a lot. The surcharge and premium increases that would result from this bill would be devastating for the people I represent.  Additionally, tying removal of a property from the program to a home’s replacement cost puts the communities I represent at risk of a foreclosure crisis.” Watch the Congressman’s floor remarks here.   ####
