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 Statement on Senate Version of TrumpCare
Baltimore, MD (June 22, 2017) — Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) issued the following statement on the unveiling of the Senate’s version of TrumpCare:“After reading the bill unveiled in the Senate today, it is clear that Leader McConnell did not receive the President’s message about a healthcare bill with ‘heart.’  The Senate version of TrumpCare is even meaner than the House version and it undermines the long-term viability of Medicaid, placing at greater risk the most vulnerable members of our society. “Now the American people can see why this this Republican monstrosity was being hidden away, with no hearings, no amendments, and no debate. “If President Trump actually wants a bill with ‘heart,’ he should abandon this Republican legislation—which will result in millions of Americans losing their health insurance—and start working with Democrats to build on the success of the Affordable Care Act, which has set the standard for quality, access, an
Cummings Statement on Republican Senate Vote to Begin Debate on TrumpCare
Washington, D.C. (July 25, 2017) — Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) issued the following statement after Senate Republicans voted to begin debate on TrumpCare: “TrumpCare will leave millions of Americans without health insurance, and it will cost lives.  This does not help the American people, it harms them.  It appears that President Trump and Republicans in Congress are more interested in scoring a political victory than in the damage their legislation will cause for American families.  I hope my colleagues will end their obsession with eliminating healthcare for millions of people just to deliver a blow to President Obama’s signature achievement.  I hope we can rise above politics and work together to truly improve the healthcare of all Americans.”  
Cummings Statement on Transportation Department’s Decision to Close Discrimination Complaint on Red Line Cancellation
Washington, DC (July 14, 2017) — Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) issued the following statement after the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) notified the Maryland Department of Transportation that the DOT has decided to close “without finding” the complaint filed in 2015 alleging that the decision to cancel the Red Line project violated Title VI of the Civil Rights Act:“The Governor’s decision to cancel the Red Line and walk away from as much as $900 million in federal investments was a devastating setback to the City of Baltimore and to local residents who rely on public transit.  The complaint filed by the NAACP Legal Defense Fund and the American Civil Liberties Union raised critical questions about this decision’s impact on Baltimore’s residents – particularly African American residents – and I am deeply disappointed that the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) is summarily closing the complaint without issuing any findings.   “I will
Cummings Statement on CBO Score of Senate’s TrumpCare Bill
Baltimore, MD (June 26, 2017) — Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) issued the following statement on the Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) report that the Senate’s TrumpCare bill would leave 22 million more Americans uninsured by 2026, including 15 million Americans who would lose their Medicaid coverage:“This CBO Report confirmed what we already know.  The Senate’s TrumpCare bill is just as ‘mean’ as the House’s, and it has no ‘heart.’   “President Trump was elected after promising the American people that “everyone will be taken care of,” but it is now clear that the only people who will be taken care of are millionaires and billionaires.  Just last week, he bragged about hiring Wall Street to run our economy, so we should not be surprised that the President is now selling out the health of the American people to pad the pockets of his wealthy friends. “TrumpCare can never have ‘heart’ because it is not a healthcare bill; it is a tax c
