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 ...

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 Torches DOJ Plans to Attack Affirmative Action
“This is nothing short of an all-out attack against black and brown students country-wide working hard for a better future. The President redirecting resources from the civil rights division of the Department of Justice to attack affirmative action is just the latest example of an answer to his rally cry asking the black community what we have to lose. “If the President is genuinely concerned about unfair advantages in school admissions, perhaps he should stop families from making staggering donations as their child with low test scores begins the application process. All too often, people of color are seen as taking too much of the pie as we try to get our fair share. It’s outrageous and devastating to have to continue this debate.”

Rep. Bass Statement on Trump Immigration Plan
“Today, the President continued his crusade against people that do not look like him. The President’s plan introduced by Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR) and David Perdue (R-GA) is a seriously misguided piece of legislation that will not improve our outdated immigration system. Rather than celebrating the contributions of immigrants in our country, this policy automatically assumes immigrants bring nothing but harm. Having a spokesman alledge that this is to help the African American community is a thinly veiled attempt to divide communities of color and pit us against one another. We need comprehensive immigration reform that recognizes and embraces the contributions of immigrant families, not spurns them.”
Rep. Bass Celebrates Deal For Los Angeles To Host 2028 Summer Olympics
“I remember the excitement in 1984 and the opportunity that the Games brought – not just to showcase our city to the world, but to embrace efforts to further improve the lives of those in Los Angeles. As someone that grew up here and has lived my entire life here, it’s an incredible feeling to be able to give our city the spotlight it deserves. Congratulations to Mayor Garcetti and to the City Council of Los Angeles, both of whom have worked tirelessly for years to make today’s announcement a reality.”
