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, the Homeowner Crusader


For President Barack Obama, fixing the collapsed housing market may be a part of political calculus, a key factor in winning a second term. For Rep. 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 ...


Elijah Cummings: Obama Needs To 'Fight Harder'


Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), responding to the high unemployment rates in the black community, said that African-Americans feel President Barack Obama "needs to fight, and fight harder." “We are totally frustrated, and people need to know that the president feels their pain,” Cummings, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, told CNN's Candy Crowley on “State of the Union” Sunday. “Almost every African-American person I spoke to said he needs to fight, and fight harder,” Cummings said. Last week, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) blasted Obama for ...

Cummings Denounces Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s Attempts to Silence Senator Elizabeth Warren
Washington, D.C. (Feb. 8, 2017)—Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) issued the following statement on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s attempts to silence Senator Elizabeth Warren as she read the words of the late Coretta Scott King during Senate Democrats’ talk-a-thon about Senator Jeff Sessions’ (R-AL) nomination for Attorney General: “Last night, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell attempted to silence not only Senator Elizabeth Warren, but the late Coretta Scott King. It was a shameful attempt to stifle the thorough debate on President Trump’s nominees that the American people expect and deserve.  “I applaud Senator Warren and my Democratic colleagues in the Senate for fighting on behalf of the millions of Americans who have demanded that the next U.S. Attorney General be committed to upholding our most fundamental constitutional rights. “In the battles to come, both in Washington and in communities nationwide, I urge my colleagues to follow Senator
Cummings Statement on Nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to Supreme Court
Washington, D.C. (Feb. 1, 2017)—Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) issued the following statement on the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court:  “Last  year, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans refused to perform their constitutional duty to advise and consent on President Obama’s nominee to the Supreme Court, Judge Merrick Garland.  President Trump had an opportunity to unite our nation around a consensus pick like Judge Garland.  Instead, he has nominated Judge Neil Gorsuch, whose record on the bench puts him outside the legal mainstream. “Now more than ever, our nation needs an independent Supreme Court that will defend the Constitution—not protect the interest of corporations and the powerful. “Judge Gorsuch has consistently sided with corporate interests over working families, and he has spoken publicly and often about his contempt for ‘the Left’ and ‘liberals.’  I am not confident that if confirmed, J
Bipartisan Coalition of House Members Introduce Legislation to Ban Juvenile Solitary Confinement
Washington, D.C. (Feb. 7, 2017)—Today, Reps. Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD), Mia Love (R-UT), Raúl Labrador (R-ID), John Conyers (D-MI), Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) and Karen Bass (D-CA) introduced the Maintaining dignity and Eliminating unnecessary Restrictive Confinement of Youths Act of 2017 (MERCY Act).  The MERCY Act would prohibit the solitary confinement of juveniles who are tried in the federal system and held in pretrial facilities or juvenile detention facilities, barring some extremely exceptional temporary circumstances.  Sens. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Rand Paul (R-KY), Mike Lee (R-UT), James Lankford (R-OK), Richard Durbin (D-IL), and Bob Casey (D-PA) introduced the bill in the Senate. “When our youth are incarcerated, they are often already forced to reckon with the stark reality of the consequences of their actions—such as being separated from their friends and family and grappling with uncertain futures,” Cummings said.  “Compounding inca
Team Maryland Calls on Hogan to Protect Marylanders from the Repeal of the Affordable Care Act
Washington, D.C. (Feb. 3, 2017) – Members of the Maryland Congressional delegation, led by U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-Md.), have written to Governor Larry Hogan (R-Md.) urging him to protect the needs of his constituents by speaking out against the repeal of the Affordable Care Act without a viable replacement. The letter, signed by Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen, and Representatives Steny Hoyer, Elijah E. Cummings, C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger, John Sarbanes, John K. Delaney, Anthony G. Brown and Jamie Raskin, urges the governor to write to the President of the United States, the Majority Leader of the United States Senate, and the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives on behalf of Marylanders who would be affected by the repeal of the ACA.  “As you know, Maryland’s uninsured rate has dropped significantly as a result of the ACA – from 10.2 percent in 2013 to 6.6 percent in 2015, with over 400,000 Marylanders gaining health care coverage. These individ
