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

Just this week all six stores in the Norfolk, Virginia area were shut down and computers taking away by police. "The police took the computers out. They're not seized. They just took them out ...

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.

Cohen: House GOP Healthcare Plan Takes From the Poor and Gives to the Rich
[WASHINGTON, D.C.] — Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) today released the following statement on the House Republicans’ legislation to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA): “The tax credits offered by the new House Republican health care plan aren’t going to cut it.  Many in Shelby County are going to see their health care costs increase by an average of $410 a year under the new Republican bill.  It shamefully takes from the poor and gives to the rich. It cuts funding for Medicaid while giving large tax cuts to the rich. It also gives a huge tax break to health insurers for bonuses they give to their executives.  Meanwhile, if your health insurance lapses, the bill allows insurers to charge you up to 30 percent more, and allows insurers to start charging more to consumers between 50 to 64 years of age.  Planned Parenthood would lose federal funding, making it more difficult for women to receive preventative health services such as mammograms, HIV tes
Cohen: CBO Report Underscores GOP’s Failure to Provide an Adequate Health Care Plan
[WASHINGTON, D.C.] — Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) today released the following statement on the report from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) on the Republican’s American Health Care Act that shows 14 million more people would be uninsured by 2018, 24 million more people would be uninsured by 2026 and a $880 billion federal cut to Medicaid by 2026:   “The report released today by the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office underscores that the Republican health care bill will result in millions of currently-insured Americans no longer having coverage. This poorly-thought-out legislation takes health care coverage away from lower and middle income Americans while giving massive tax breaks to the wealthy. The 400 richest taxpayers in America will get on average an annual $7 million tax break per person. According to the report, 14 million more people would be uninsured by 2018 and 24 million more people would be uninsured by 2026. In addition, it projects the bill would
Reps. Cohen and Kinzinger, Senators Blumenthal, Schumer, Markey, Menendez and Feinstein Introduce Bipartisan, Bicameral SEAT Act
[WASHINGTON, D.C.] – Congressman Steve Cohen (D-TN), Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY), Senator Ed Markey (D-MA), Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ), and Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) today introduced the bipartisan, bicameral Seat Egress in Air Travel (SEAT) Act in the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate. The SEAT Act would establish a minimum seat size on commercial airlines as well as a minimum distance between rows of seats to protect the safety and health of airline passengers. “Airline passengers are tired of being squeezed,” said Congressman Cohen. “Shrinking seat sizes in airplanes isn’t just a matter of comfort but the safety and health of passengers as well. Planes need to be capable of rapid evacuation in case of emergency. In addition, doctors have warned that deep vein thrombosis can afflict passengers who do not move their legs enough during longer flights. The safety and he
