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 Marks 2nd Anniversary of Mr. Freddie Gray’s Death
Washington, D.C. (Apr. 19, 2017)—Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD), issued the following statement marking the 2nd anniversary of Mr. Freddie Gray’s death:  “Like many in our community, I still mourn the death of Mr. Freddie Gray.  His family, friends and loved ones will always be in my prayers.  Mr. Gray moved many in our City to demand a better Baltimore for all residents and he moved us to act.   “I have been proud to see our community, faith, and business leaders take steps to improve our police department, expand economic opportunity for our neighbors living in historically underserved communities, and give more of our young people a chance to become all God meant for them to be. “We must continue to cast our gaze forward as we implement the consent decree for the Baltimore City Police Department and we must continue to work toward becoming a city where all residents are valued, respected and provided the opportunity to thrive and prosper.”
Cummings Statement on Airstrikes in Syria
Washington, D.C. (Apr. 7, 2017) — Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) issued the following statement after President Donald J. Trump ordered the U.S. military to conduct airstrikes on a military airfield in Syria:  “This week the world got a glimpse into the fear and horror that millions of Syrians live with every day.  The Assad regime’s most recent use of chemical weapons against his own people—including many young children—is a crime against humanity.  While last night’s airstrikes in Syria were a proportional response to an unforgivable crime, missiles alone will not resolve the conflict in Syria.  I am calling on President Trump to immediately rescind his ban on Syrian refugees and to share his strategy regarding the civil war in Syria with Congress and with the American people.  We must have an honest, open debate on how to best address this complex issue.  The stakes are too high.”  
Cummings Statement on Trump Administration Memo Proposing Cuts to ONDCP
Washington, D.C. (May 5, 2017)—Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) issued the following statement on reports that President Donald Trump’s FY18 budget would propose drastic cuts to the Office of National Drug Control Policy, including completely eliminating the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas (HIDTA) and Drug-Free Communities Programs:  “President Trump promised the American people that he would solve the opioid epidemic, so I hope these reports are not an indication of his Administration’s intentions.  The Office of National Drug Control Policy, including the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas program and the Drug-Free Communities program, are some of the important tools federal, state and local law enforcement agencies have to fight the opioid epidemic.  The programs allow agencies to share resources and best practices to address problems like heroin use and drug trafficking in our communities.   “Many communities in my district, and across the coun
Cummings Condemns House Passage of TrumpCare
Washington, D.C. (May 4, 2017)—Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) issued the following statement on the House passage of TrumpCare:    “Today’s vote on TrumpCare was a loss for the American people and a moral failure on the part of my Republican colleagues.  “The American people are organized against TrumpCare. My constituents called, they emailed, they came to my office and to town halls to share their stories of life before the ACA, and to tell me that they have no interest in going back.  I know that my Republican colleagues heard from their constituents as well—they should listen to them. “Who is this bill meant to help?  The majority of the American people oppose it; groups representing seniors, hospitals, and doctors oppose it; and until two days ago, many Republican House Members opposed it.   “If my colleagues are interested in improving healthcare for all Americans, they should work with Democrats to improve upon the progress we have made.  I
