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 ...

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.

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 ...

Rep. Bass Statement on Comey Senate Testimony
“Today’s hearing exemplified the diminished prestige of the presidency since Donald Trump took office. If the president is not to be trusted, his administration cannot be trusted to investigate itself. In addition to the appointed independent prosecutor, we need an independent commission to begin to restore our country’s international perception and to get to the bottom of Russia’s interference in our democracy.”
Rep. Bass Returns From Famine Congressional Delegation to South Sudan and Uganda: “There’s still work to be done”
“The trip was extremely educational for the both of us but the main takeaway from the trip was more than clear; there’s still work to be done,” Rep. Bass said upon her return. “When you visit a camp with hundreds of thousands of refugees you begin to understand on a much deeper level the impact of man-made famine. The conditions are devastating and the international community is in a position to do something about it.” The delegation visited aid sites in both Uganda and South Sudan, including Bidi Bidi, which became the world’s largest refugee camp in April. Rep. Smith and Rep. Bass also met with President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni of Uganda and President Salva Kiir Mayardit and First Vice President Taban Deng Gai of South Sudan. The trip lasted 6 days. “The aid Uganda is receiving is nowhere near the amount needed to sustain life and it’s obvious on the faces of those we met there. We made sure to emphasize that the conflict in South Sudan needs to stop. We must address
Rep. Bass Introduces the “Yemen Security and Humanity Act” In Continual Effort Combat Impending Famine
“The most devastating aspect of the impending famine in Yemen is that it’s man-made and preventable,” Rep. Bass, Ranking Member of the House Subcommittee on Africa, said. “This legislation is designed to immediately build a comprehensive strategy to address the humanitarian and security crisis in Yemen. We must continue to be an international leader in famine aid and relief. I look forward to my colleagues’ continued advocacy on this disastrous issue and thank them for their continued vigilance to end famine now.” “I’m pleased to join Ranking Member Bass on this measure,” said Rep. Joe Crowley, Chairman of the Democratic Caucus. “The world needs to come together to help address the dangers of famine, and this bill is an important step in the right direction.” “While the people of Yemen starve, the United States is supporting morally reprehensible arms deals that worsen this preventable humanitarian crisis. This must change,” said Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D
Rep. Bass, CCFY Co-Chairs Endorse Bipartisan Child Welfare Package
“The expectation that our current child welfare system sets is that once a child in the foster care system turns 18, they are fully capable of being independent without any aid. They can house themselves, feed themselves, and their own bills. We know that that’s simply not true,” Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) said. “That’s why these bills are so important; not just because of the functionality, but because it sends a message to the over 400,000 foster youth in the country that we hear them and that we’re here for them. The system does not have to work against them, that’s why our caucus is supporting this package and the bipartisan coalition of Members that have put these bills forward.” Read the full statement here.
