Issa hammers Cummings for using Abramoff

Top House oversight committee Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings wants to attack former lobbyist Jack Abramoff — again — in a Congressional hearing. While admitting Abramoff successfully completed his “three-and-a-half year sentence” in prison, and pointing out that the House oversight committee has, for years, “worked in a bipartisan manner to investigate the illegal activities of Mr. Abramoff and his associates, as well as the implications of his actions on the transparent and effective operation of our government,” Cummings wants to again dredge up the matter ...

Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the fight to keep people in their homes and out of foreclosure is a personal mission. “I feel it just sitting here and talking to you — it’s emotion,” Cummings told POLITICO in an interview last week. “When I walk out of my door every morning, five of 15 homes on the other side of the street are in foreclosure. … I see the devastation it brings on people every day.” And ...

Washington, D.C. (September 2, 2016)— Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) issued the following statement in recognition of Labor Day: “The hard-working men and women that make up our workforce are America’s greatest resource.  Today, we celebrate them and the labor movement, which has fought tirelessly to protect the rights of American workers. “If America is going to continue being a shining city upon a hill, we in Congress must work to provide our workers with more opportunity, not less.  We must raise the federal minimum wage so no worker lives in poverty; we must guarantee that men and women are paid an equal wage for equal work; and we must ensure that the future of American workers is secure in retirement.   “America is already great, but if we invest in our workers, we can make it even greater.”
