Congressman Calls For Investigation On Mo’ Money Taxes


Congressman Steve Cohen out of Memphis plans to join a Virginia Congressman in sending a letter to US Attorney General Eric Holder calling for an investigation into Mo' Money Taxes.

Addressing the Root Causes of the Baltimore Unrest
Dear Friend, This week, we saw a powder keg of lack of access to education, lack of opportunity, and lack of hope explode with the unrest in Baltimore—it’s clear we must do more to address persistent poverty and prevent police illegal force. It was also busy in Congress, as I was on the floor both Wednesday and Thursday evening until almost midnight, my energy efficiency amendment passed, I introduced legislation to protect students and taxpayers from bad actors in the for-profit college industry, saw how much progress we’ve made in the marijuana reform movement, helped welcome more than 200 new Americans to our city, and listened to the Prime Minister of Japan speak to Congress.

Reps. Cohen, Takano, Davis Introduce Bill to Protect Students from For-Profit Colleges
[WASHINGTON, DC] – This afternoon, Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) joined U.S. Representatives Mark Takano (CA-41) and Susan Davis (CA-53) to announce the Protections and Regulations for Our Students Act (PRO Students Act), a comprehensive bill designed to protect our nation’s students from deceitful practices and bad actors in the for-profit college industry. The PRO Students Act would provide a number of protections to students and taxpayers as well as ensure that for-profit institutions derive at least 15% of their revenue from non-federal student aid as Congressman Cohen proposed in his POST Act.  “For-profit colleges should be held accountable both to the students they claim to educate as well as to the taxpayers who keep their doors open,” said Congressman Cohen. “The PRO Students Act will help protect students from unscrupulous institutions and ensure that tax dollars are used to educate, not pad investors’ wallets. I am proud to join Representatives Takano and Davi

Cohen, Polis, Blumenauer Lead Letter Urging White House to Choose Progressive DEA Chief
[WASHINGTON, DC] — Today, Representatives Jared Polis (D-CO), Steve Cohen (D-TN), and Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) sent a letter to President Obama urging him to nominate a new Drug Enforcement Administration chief that has a more progressive approach to federal drug enforcement. Barbara Lee (D-CA),  Sam Farr (D-CA), Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), and Eric Swalwell (D-CA) also joined in sending the letter. The Representatives urged the President to nominate a DEA Administrator who is willing to work with state and federal officials to create policies that work with­—not against­­—the evolving landscape of state marijuana laws. The letter states that retiring DEA director Michele Leonhart placed too great an emphasis on prosecuting marijuana use and not enough on drug-related activity that truly poses a public-safety risk. “The DEA plays a critical role in promoting the health and safety of Americans.
