Charles Rangel on Supporting Occupy Wall Street

This month Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) was the first member of Congress to visit the Occupy Wall Street protest -- but contrary to some reports, he says that he was not booed out of the place. The jeers from the crowd, Rangel told The Root, were directed instead at a lone heckler who interrupted his speech supporting the movement. The Harlem lawmaker also said that the voice of a frustrated constituency -- even if it's just to say, "I'm mad as hell" -- is welcome and necessary for Congress to act on unemployment, foreclosure and the dissolving middle class. Rangel spoke with us about what he ...

Charlie Rangel crashes Rick Perry's Harlem party

Texas Gov. Rick Perry got an unexpected welcoming party when the GOP presidential candidate arrived in Harlem today: Longtime Democratic Rep. Charles Rangel. The wily Democrat, who has represented the largely black and Latino neighborhood for 42 years in the House, startled reporters waiting for Perry when he turned up outside Papasito's Bar, where the governor was scheduled to meet local business readers. Wearing a cat-that-ate-the-canary grin, the congressman insisted that he "had no idea it was a Republican event." Tongue remaining firmly in cheek, he continued that he felt he should be ...

Poten. Challenger Claims Rangel Vulnerable This Go Around

Charles Rangel may be a Harlem institution, but a poll paid for by a potential rival says he's beatable. Clyde Williams, former adviser to President Bill Clinton with ties to President Obama, didn't want to blindly challenge the 42-year incumbent.So Williams hired one of Mayor Bloomberg’s pollsters, Whitman Insight Strategies, to ask 600 likely Democratic primary voters in the district if they would re-elect Rangel.The answer: only 35% said they would send Rangel back to Congress, company president Bernard Whitman said."If you are an incumbent, and less than 50% of the people polled say ...

New York, NY — Congressman Charles B. Rangel, who represents the 13th Congressional District of New York that includes Upper Manhattan and parts of the Bronx, released the following statement congratulating the new NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill: "During my time in Congress, I’ve seen America’s incredible ability to respond to a public crisis. On September 13, 1994, Congress passed historic legislation to address the menace of domestic violence and the prevalence of assault weapons in our society. The Violence Against Women Act, which I voted to reauthorize in 2013, continues to be an important tool in giving domestic violence survivors the legal assistance and resources they need to find justice. But today, the Republican-controlled Congress is failing to respond to the most deadly crisis of our time: the epidemic of gun violence. Attacks in Orlando, Sandy Hook, Colorado Springs, and countless other communities force us to confront the need for action, but Congress refuses to
Rangel Honors Women's Equality Day
NEW YORK, NY – Congressman Charles B. Rangel, who represents the 13th Congressional District of New York that includes upper Manhattan and parts of the Bronx, released the following statement to mark Women’s Equality Day, a day that recognizes the 96th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment, which enshrined women’s right to vote: “I am proud to celebrate Women’s Equality Day to recognize one of the great leaps forward for our democracy – finally giving women the right to vote. Today is a day to mark the progress our nation has made in ensuring fairness and equality for all, and renew our commitment to protect and to expand voting rights of those who do not have a voice. I am pleased to honor the memories of such giants of the suffragette movement as Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Lucretia Mott, who showed enormous courage for decades in fighting for women’s rights. While none of them lived to cast their first vote, their legacy lived on. T

Rangel Applauds House Passage of AGOA Enhancement Act
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Charles B. Rangel praised the bipartisan passage by the House of Representatives of H.R. 2845, the AGOA Enhancement Act of 2015, which promotes access to benefits under the African Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA). The legislation, which passed the House by voice vote on the evening of Tuesday, September 7, 2016, now moves to the Senate for approval.  “I was pleased to see both parties come together to promote AGOA, which helps encourage trade and economic prosperity for both American and African businesses,” said Rangel. “As the prime author of AGOA in 2000, I am very proud of the bipartisan work done by Chairman Ed Royce, Congresswoman Karen Bass, Congressman Jim McDermott, and many other leaders. It is great that AGOA is in the safe hands of new champions from both sides of the aisle.” Rangel played an instrumental role in the original passage of AGOA in 2000 and its reauthorization in 2015. The program created by AGOA provides duty-free ac
