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 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 Stresses Need For Transparency In Alton Sterling Investigation
Washington, DC – In a letter sent to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Congressmen Cedric Richmond (LA-02) raised additional concerns about the lack of transparency in the civil rights investigation into the death of Alton Sterling:   “I am following up because persistent rumors are circulating in the Baton Rouge area that local law enforcement has been informed of a specific timeline for an announcement,” said Rep. Richmond.   “These rumors have risen to the point that local schools and other organizations are expending funds to prepare for a Tuesday announcement.  The Department of Justice’s failure to communicate with the community has created angst and nervousness, and I fear this carries the potential for increased tension between the community and law enforcement.”    The letter to Attorney General Sessions can be found here.
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
