Staunch ally Bass rallies support for Obama jobs speech


Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), one of Barack Obama’s key allies, called for democratic supporters to rally behind his crucial jobs speech Thursday. She also pre-empted criticism on the Republican side by noting that even if House Speaker John Boehner wrote the address, he’d oppose it if the president delivered it. Bass made her comments at a press briefing Saturday while hosting the Grand Opening of her District Office, located at 4929 Wilshire Boulevard, which was attended by over 200 invited guests. The former Assembly Speaker actually opened the office in January, following last ...


Congresswoman Karen Bass remembers civil activist L. Mobley


South Los Angeles activist Lillian Mobley, who advocated for better education, transportation, healthcare and other public services for the community, has died. She was 81. Her son Kenneth Mobley says his mother died Monday at Centinela Medical Center in Los Angeles from natural causes. Mobley was part of a group that spearheaded the fight to bring a hospital to South Los Angeles residents after the 1965 Watts riot. The result was Martin Luther King Hospital, later known as Martin Luther King/Drew Medical Center. Her son says Mobley also was instrumental in the opening of the Charles Drew ...


Bass talks health care reform in wake of strike down ...


A conservative federal appeals panel struck down President Barack Obama's health care overhaul Friday. Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) warned on KPCC's Patt Morrison's program that the conservative federal appeals panel that struck down the health care overhaul is "part of the ongoing effort to make sure that health care reform does not get implemented in this country." Bass said while those actions can slow down the process of implementing universal health care, they can't stop them. "So long as we retain the senate and the current president in the White House they [conservatives] will never be ...

Reps. Velázquez, Bass, & Key Members of Congress Move to Preserve TPS, Protect Immigrants
In recent weeks, there has been increasing fear that the Trump Administration will terminate TPS for individuals from certain countries such as El Salvador, Haiti and Nicaragua, potentially resulting in their deportation. Velázquez’s bill would ensure individuals who have resided in the U.S. under these programs for a period of three years can remain in the country and pursue a path to naturalization.  The legislation was cosponsored by House Democratic Caucus Chair Joe Crowley (D-NY) and Reps. Ted Lieu (D-CA) and Karen Bass (D-CA). “Those in the TPS program are some of our most vulnerable neighbors who have fled natural disasters and political conflict at great personal risk,” said Velázquez.  “It would be inhumane to force these families and individuals who have built lives in the U.S. to abruptly leave.”   “These individuals deserve protection and the ability to stay in the United States. They’ve passed numerous extensive background checks and have a strong his
Rep. Bass Slams Trump’s Termination Of Diversity Visa Program
“In the wake of Tuesday’s attack in New York City, President Trump has politicized the tragedy by going after the Senate Democratic Leader and calling for the termination of the Diversity Visa Program, one of the primary vehicles used by Africans to immigrate to the U.S. Instead of punishing an entire continent for Tuesday’s attack, we must focus on real comprehensive immigration reform and ways to bolster local anti-terrorism efforts. The comments made today, which can be boiled down to fear-mongered rhetoric, accomplish neither.” Earlier, House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI), Committee on Homeland Security Ranking Member Bennie G. Thompson (D-MS), Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) Chairman Cedric Richmond (D-LA), CBC Second Vice Chair and Co-Chair of the CBC Task Force on Foreign Affairs and National Security Karen Bass (D-CA), and CBC Member-At-Large and Chair of the CBC Immigration Working Group Yvette D. Clarke (D-NY), issued the following joi
Rep. Bass On Sutherland Springs Shooting: “It’s time to stop favoring the gun lobby over the lives of community members.”
“I’m deeply saddened by this devastating attack. 36 days of thoughts and prayers from Congress since our country’s worst mass shooting in history obviously haven’t worked. It’s time to stop favoring the gun lobby over the lives of community members. We need reform.” Last Wednesday, Rep. Bass joined House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member John Conyers, Jr. in sending a letter signed by every democratic member of the House Judiciary Committee to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, urging him to hold hearings on gun violence in America. In their letter to Chairman Goodlatte, the Members wrote, “To be clear, we are not writing simply because of the high toll of death and injuries in Las Vegas, but because – despite progress we have made in decreasing crime in our country over the past two decades – on average, more than 11,000 people are murdered with guns in America ever year, and more than 60,000 individuals are injured in an attack.  Congress has a re
Rep. Bass Marks Beginning of Health Care Enrollment Period
“Because the Trump administration has cut funding for ads encouraging enrollment for the Affordable Care Act and pulled out of assisting states with enrollment efforts, we’ve had to take getting the word out upon ourselves,” Rep. Bass said. “This is your chance to make changes that work best for you and your family. You can find plans with no-cost preventive care — like flu shots and mammograms — and you may be eligible for assistance with paying your premium. Please enroll early and please spread the word to get covered. Our health care system is only strong if all of us participate.” For details about available plans, please visit https://www.coveredca.com/ or call (800) 300-1506.
