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 Statement on the President’s Budget Proposal
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Cedric Richmond (LA-02) issued the following statement after the President released his 2018 budget proposal:   “On top of the callous healthcare bill that is being rammed through Congress on the backs of working people, this budget is a slap in the face to the entire state of Louisiana,” said Rep. Richmond. “The President makes his priorities clear and strips funding from programs that help working families get ahead. Our economy is strongest when investment is focused from the middle out, rather than the top down. Instead, the President’s proposal delivers the moon and stars to the wealthiest Americans while leaving the middle class without a parachute.   “It cuts $800 billion from Medicaid, even though President Trump promised several times throughout his campaign that he would protect it. It cuts the Children’s Health Insurance Program by almost 20%. It attacks farmers by eliminating commodity payments and making it impossi
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.”   ###
Rep. Richmond Statement on Alton Sterling Investigation
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Cedric Richmond (LA-02) released the following statement after the Department of Justice (DOJ) disclosed its findings in the investigation of the death of Alton Sterling at the hands of Baton Rouge police officers: “Today's announcement, and the process that led to it, leaves me extremely disappointed,” said Rep. Richmond. “However, I am convinced the fight for justice for Alton Sterling continues. I grieve for Sandra and the entire Sterling family as they have been forced to relive the horror they experienced more than 10 months ago.   “I commend Attorney General Landry's swift decision to pursue an investigation, led by State Police. While the standards for federal charges are extremely high, standards under state law are broader and may be more easily applied to the facts of this case. The Sterling family deserves a thorough, transparent investigation by state officials.   “I share the concerns of the Sterling family regarding the
Rep. Richmond Statement on the Passage of the Republican Healthcare Bill
Washington, DC – Today, Congressman Cedric Richmond (LA-02) released the following statement after passage of H.R. 1628, the American Health Care Act of 2017:   “Well, the Republicans have fulfilled a campaign promise.  Unfortunately, it was a promise that will have serious life-changing consequences for millions of Americans, including veterans, individuals with pre-existing conditions, older Americans, and those who rely on Medicaid,” said Rep. Richmond. “The bill makes it easier for insurance companies to deny basic coverage like maternity care, mental health and addiction services, and prescription drugs, as well as threatens the employer sponsored insurance system.”   “Passage of this bill, in addition to the regulatory changes the Trump administration has undertaken, continues to jeopardize healthcare for millions.  There is an old saying, “if you break it, you buy it”.  Republicans are on a singular mission to break the Affordable Care Act, and they will
