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. This time of year is big business for tax preparers, but the response from Mo' Money Taxes customers is anything but positive.

Steve Cohen regrets losing Jewish voters in Tenn.’s 9th


Rep. 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.

Chastising House Judiciary Republicans for Squelching the Voice of the Minority
Dear Friend, This week, I chastised House Judiciary Republicans for squelching the voice of the minority party, announced that I would be hosting a town hall meeting on Saturday, August 5, inquired about the President potentially violating the Constitution’s foreign emoluments clause, cosponsored a resolution disapproving of President Trump firing Special Counsel Robert Mueller, hosted a bipartisan forum on the freedom of the press, met with the Washington Post’s Bob Woodward, introduced a bipartisan bill to hold owners of low-income housing accountable for poor living conditions, spoke in support of a bill to create a network on civil rights monuments and memorials, sent a letter to the acting ICE Director expressing my concerns about the recent ICE raids in Memphis, and spoke at a Biomedical Research Caucus briefing on Alzheimer’s disease.

Dems launch ‘no confidence’ resolution against Trump
A group of liberal House Democrats stepped up criticism of President Trump on Wednesday, introducing a “no confidence” resolution that officially questions Trump’s fitness to serve as commander in chief. It logs a laundry list of controversies swirling around the president — including his campaign’s many contacts with Russian officials, his refusal to release his taxes, his verbal attacks on women and the press, and his firing of FBI Director James Comey. Sponsored by Rep. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), the resolution has been endorsed by 23 more Democrats, including Reps. John Lewis (Ga.), a civil rights icon; John Yarmuth (Ky.), ranking member of the Budget Committee; David Cicilline (R.I.), who leads the Democrats’ policy and communications arm; and Judy Chu (Calif.), who heads the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus. Trump’s track record, Cohen said, exposes “a president that you wouldn’t want your children to look up to.” “The way he talks about women, th
Cohen and Ross Reintroduce the Bipartisan Housing Accountability Act
[WASHINGTON, D.C.] – Congressman Steve Cohen (D-TN) and Congressman Dennis Ross (R-FL) today reintroduced the Housing Accountability Act, a bipartisan bill to hold property owners of low-income housing accountable for poor living conditions. This legislation would require the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to survey tenants living in subsidized housing twice a year about property conditions and management performance and create new penalties for property owners who repeatedly fail the tenant surveys. In 2015, local and federal investigations found deplorable living conditions at several federally subsidized-housing properties owned by the Global Ministries Foundation (GMF) in Memphis, Tennessee and Jacksonville, Florida. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Bill Nelson (D-FL) introduced a similar bill in the United States Senate in January. “I was very disturbed by the deplorable living conditions many Memphians experienced at Warren and Tulane Apartments,” sa
