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 President Trump’s Pardon of Joe Arpaio
Washington, D.C. (August 26, 2017) — Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) issued the following statement after President Donald Trump pardoned Joe Arpaio:“The President claims that he wants to unite the country and fight against racism, yet his own words and actions show the opposite.  He followed up his abhorrent statements about Charlottesville—that some white supremacists are 'very fine people'—by pardoning a racist cop for his crimes against minorities.  Over and over again, President Trump has promoted what Speaker Ryan once called ‘textbook racism’ while exhibiting contempt for the rule of law.  President Trump is sending a message with these words and his actions, and it is one of hate and divisiveness rather than hope and unity.”  
Cummings Statement on Passing of Dick Gregory
Washington, D.C. (August 20, 2017) — Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) issued the following statement on the passing of comedian and civil rights activist Dick Gregory: “I am deeply saddened by the death of my friend, teacher and mentor, Dick Gregory.  My thoughts and prayers are with his family and loved ones.  Dick’s comedy, speeches and activism brought laughter to millions, gave a voice to the voiceless, and spoke truth to power.  He will be missed by many.”  
Katko, Cummings Reintroduce Bipartisan Legislation to Place Harriet Tubman on $20 Bill
Washington, D.C. (September 8, 2017) – Today, U.S. Representatives Elijah E. Cummings (MD-07) and John Katko (NY-24) renewed their bipartisan effort to honor the life of Harriet Tubman—introducing The Harriet Tubman Tribute Act, which would require the Secretary of the Treasury to place Harriet Tubman’s likeness on the $20 bill beginning in 2020.  Cummings and Katko introduced similar legislation in June 2015.“Too often, our nation does not do enough to honor the contributions of women in American history, especially women of color,” Cummings said.  “Harriet Tubman was called the Moses of her people, because after she escaped slavery, she courageously made 19 trips to the South to free more than 300 enslaved African Americans.  Her courage, conviction and commitment to equality represent the best of America and it is long past time we recognize her place in history.  I am proud to introduce this bill with Rep. Katko to honor Harriet Tubman’s role in making America a
Cummings Recognizes Labor Day
Washington, D.C. (September 4, 2017) — Today, Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (D-MD) issued the following statement in recognition of Labor Day: “Labor Day gives Americans an opportunity to express gratitude for the workers who wake up every day to provide vital services to our communities.  Today is also a day for us to honor the rich history and contributions of the U.S. labor movement, which secured many rights for American workers, including overtime pay and the 40-hour work week.     “Despite our recognition of their efforts, we often fail to adequately support our workers and Republicans have led a years-long assault on labor unions.  Today, labor unions are the weakest they have ever been; too many Americans workers do not earn a living wage; too many American women still do not receive equal pay for equal work; and too many working families cannot afford child care.     “This Labor Day, in addition to enjoying time with our family and loved ones, let us recomm
