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 on Senate Version of the GOP Healthcare Bill
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Cedric Richmond (LA-02) released the following statement after Senate Republicans released a discussion draft of their healthcare replacement plan:   “Now that the text has finally emerged from the shadows, it is abundantly clear that Senate Republicans have not learned from the extensive flaws in the House bill,” said Rep. Richmond. “Their bill makes the drastic cuts to Medicaid deeper, increases out of pocket costs, and reduces tax credits for working families all in an effort to give the richest Americans an enormous tax cut.   “This bill is simply another bad deal for the American people. It is bad for families, it is bad for seniors, and it is bad for our economy. We cannot afford this heartless healthcare plan that is even more malicious than the proposal that the President himself described as ‘mean.’ I will continue to fight to maintain the quality healthcare that seniors and hard-working families deserve.”   ###

While this help is appreciated, we still have a lot of work ahead of us to make these communities whole again.”   FEMA grants a

Rep. Richmond Responds to Latest Senate Healthcare Bill
Washington, DC – Today, Congressman Cedric Richmond (LA-02), released the following statement in response to the latest Senate Republican Healthcare bill:   “Different draft, same effect: devastating cuts to Medicaid; millions will lose healthcare; and millions more will see an increase in costs and fewer benefits,” said Rep. Richmond.  “The Senate Republican effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act was bad before and it is still bad today.  They should focus less on trying to  get their politics “right” and spend more time trying to address the real healthcare concerns of hardworking American families.”
