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 ...

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.

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. Bass, Frankel #StandWithSusan, Send Letter To Trump In Support of Amb. Susan Rice
April 6, 2017 The Honorable Donald J. Trump President United States of America 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W. Washington, DC   Dear Mr. President: As Members of Congress, we write to you today to express our deep concern about the outrageous and offensive allegations being made about former National Security Advisor, Ambassador Susan Rice. In particular, we are disturbed by your comments you made to the press yesterday, April 5th, from the Oval Office accusing her of committing a crime while offering no evidence, in spite of the fact that former intelligence officials from both sides of the aisle have stated that nothing they have seen would lead them to such a conclusion. As you may be aware, Ambassador Rice has decades of foreign policy and diplomacy experience, is respected internationally in her field and was a Rhodes Scholar. She has dedicated her entire career to public service and this is not the first time her reputation has been maligned with untrue, harmful allegations
CBC Africa Taskforce Co-Chairs Host Africa Forum on Famine
Washington, D.C.  – Today, Congressman Gregory W. Meeks (D-NY), Ranking Member of the House Subcommittee on Europe and Eurasia, and Congressmember Karen Bass (D-Calif.), Ranking Member of the House Subcommittee on Africa, hosted an Africa Policy Forum to discuss Somalia, South Sudan and Northeastern Nigeria, all of which are either experiencing or on the brink of famine. The purpose of the forum was to discuss pursuable solutions and to also raise awareness about this increasingly dangerous issue. “We can’t just sit back and say that 20 million people are at risk of starvation and that our country will not play a role,” said Rep. Bass. “Last year, South Sudan was on the brink of famine. Now, as famine has been declared and over 40 percent of the country’s population faces severe, life-threatening hunger, our President is threatening to cut the foreign aid budget by nearly 30 percent. This added to the threat of famine in Somalia and Northeastern Nigeria creates the potent
Rep. Bass on Syrian Airstrikes: “This Is Not The Way To Peace"
"The constitution is clear; if President Trump intends to increase our military’s involvement in Syria, he must come to Congress for an Authorization for Use of Military Force. Tonight, I join the growing calls for Congress to immediately debate the further course of action in Syria. If we truly care about protecting the Syrian people that were brutalized by the chemical attack earlier this week, we should open our country to Syrian refugees and engage in multilateral foreign aid efforts. Hurling 59 tomahawk missiles at Syria is short-sighted, it is not the way to peace."  
Rep. Bass, Quiet Skies Caucus Push for Action on Airplane Noise in FY’18 Spending Bill
The Quiet Skies Caucus, led by co-chairs Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) and Congressman Tom Suozzi (D-NY) and vice chairs Congressman Stephen Lynch (D-MA) and Congressman Mike Quigley (D-IL), wrote to the Chairman and Ranking Member of the House Appropriations Committee’s Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing and Urban Development requesting they include in the subcommittee’s fiscal year 2018 appropriations bill two important provisions to help mitigate airplane noise.  The Caucus requested that the Subcommittee “provide funding for health studies on the impact of airplane and helicopter noise on communities and that you include report language directing the Federal Aviation Administration to conduct an expedited review of their noise standards.” “The continual barrage of airplane noise at all hours is absolutely unacceptable,” Rep. Bass said. “My office has received increasing complaints over the past two years, which have escalated to a flood in recent w
