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.

Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), the first Jewish congressman ever elected in Tennessee, will be running in a fundamentally new 9th Congressional District this year without a strong base of support from the Jewish community in Memphis. On Friday, the Tennessee Senate approved a redistricting map that would effectively move most of Cohen’s Memphis-area Jewish constituency into the 8th Congressional District, represented by Rep. Stephen Fincher (R-Tenn.). Cohen, who represented most of the Memphis Jewish community for 20 years in the state senate and U.S. House of Representatives, expressed ...

Cohen Cosponsors Bill to Protect Public Employee Pensions
[WASHINGTON, DC] – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) today cosponsored legislation to help protect the pensions and benefits that public service employees—including firefighters and police officers—have worked hard for and earned. The Protecting Employees and Retirees in Municipal Bankruptcies Act of 2014, introduced today by Congressman John Conyers (MI-13), would impose higher standards that local governments must meet before modifying collective bargaining agreements or retiree benefits as well as provide several other protections for retirees and public employees in municipal bankruptcies. “We should keep our promises to firefighters, police officers, and all citizens who have devoted their lives to serving their communities,” said Congressman Cohen. “They worked hard to protect us, and they have earned the benefits they were promised. I am pleased to join Congressman John Conyers on this important legislation that will strengthen protections for our first responders and
Cohen: Democrats’ New “Jumpstart” Action Plan Will Put Middle Class First, Create Jobs, and Help Students Succeed
[WASHINGTON, DC] – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) announced his strong support for the new “Middle Class Jumpstart” action plan that was unveiled this morning by House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (CA-12). The new House Democratic plan, introduced the same day that Republicans gathered to consider a frivolous lawsuit against President Obama at taxpayer expense, outlines a better vision for our nation with a plan to create good-paying jobs, raise new ladders of opportunity for all families, and reignite the American Dream. “I am proud to stand behind the ‘Middle Class Jumpstart’ action plan to put middle class families first, create good-paying jobs, help women succeed, and make college more affordable,” said Congressman Cohen. “Instead of focusing on further stacking the deck in favor of corporations and the ultra-wealthy, it is time for Congress to turn its attention to what really matters: helping middle class families.” “Sadly, House Republicans have chosen to

Cohen & Cartwright Introduce Bill to Crack Down On Predatory, Excessive Interest Rates and Fees
[WASHINGTON, DC] – Congressmen Steve Cohen (TN-09) and Matt Cartwright (PA-17) today introduced the Protecting Consumers from Unreasonable Credit Rates Act, which would cap fees and interest rates that predatory lenders charge on payday loans and other consumer credit products like car title loans, which can sometimes reach 300%. The bill would limit interest rates and fees at 36% for all consumer credit transactions, the same rate cap that is already protecting military personnel and their families. “Throughout my career, I have worked to shield people from those who would take advantage of them through predatory lending practices. Predatory lenders wreck people’s lives and perpetuate a cycle of indebtedness. Justice and morality dictates that reasonable caps on interest be enacted to protect borrowers from devious lenders,” said Congressman Cohen. In 2006, Congress enacted a federal 36% annualized usury cap for certain credit products marketed to servicemembers and their fami
