    Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis) has introduced legislation that would require taxpayers to pass a drug test before being allowed to itemize deductions on their 1040 tax forms. The bill is in retaliation for state laws that require welfare recipients to pass drug tests in order to receive benefits. "I am sick and tired of Republicans forcing poor people to jump through hoops to receive the money they are entitled to under the law," Moore complained. "We enacted these programs to help the unfortunate. Few members of society are as unfortunate as drug addicts. They are slaves to chemicals that their...

    Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., in February. (Photo: Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call) A Congresswoman who is “sick and tired” of drug testing welfare recipients has introduced a bill in Congress that would subject the rich to many of those same requirements. Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., unveiled Thursday the Top 1% Accountability Act, which would require those claiming itemized deductions of more than $150,000 on their tax returns to submit to drug tests or file for less generous tax deductions. The proposal is a shot across the bow at Republican governors in states, including Moore’s home state of Wisconsin, that require the...

    U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore from Wisconsin continued her attack against her pro-life colleagues this week after they asked her and other African American leaders why they are not standing up for the unborn black babies who are often aborted. The Congresswoman wrote a column for the Washington Post Tuesday criticizing pro-life legislators for using the “Black Lives Matter” phrase to call for protections for unborn babies targeted by the abortion industry. The column, “Dear conservatives: Abortion clinics don’t ‘target’ the black community,” is her latest attack against fellow Wisconsin U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy. In January, Duffy called out African American...

    "......"Well, I can tell you that I guess my sister Brenda says it well – that everything that pops into your head doesn’t need to pop out of your mouth. But having said that, I don’t see any reason to apologize to him (Walker). If anything, he should apologize, I think, for his deliberate efforts during his tenure as governor to increase the misery index among African-Americans.” Moore cited a number of Walker decisions, including drug testing food stamp recipients and refusing federal money for a high-speed train. Asked if she could do the conference call over, if she would...

    Congresswoman Gwen Moore told a group of reporters that Republican presidential candidate Scott Walker is “tightening the noose, literally, around African Americans'” necks during a Monday conference call.The Milwaukee Democrat apparently isn’t a fan of the Wisconsin governor, and said that Walker disproportionately hurts blacks by opposing a higher “minimum wage, requiring voters to show photo identification at the polls, and requiring drug testing for public aid recipients.”Additionally, she noted that Walker blocked the construction of a high-speed train connecting Madison and Milwaukee that “took away jobs from inner city Milwaukee.”[h/t: Mediaite, Fox]

    Writing in The Daily Beast Friday, House Democrat Gwen Moore of Milwaukee assails Sheriff David Clarke and his “flagrant grandstanding” on Fox News, accusing the sheriff of purveying inflammatory and ugly rhetoric in the debate over the relationship between policing and African-American communities. “The country is just now getting to know Sheriff Clarke, but I’m all too familiar with his inflammatory antics,” Moore writes “His proclivity for provocation coupled with his distorted view of black America has grown more extreme over the years, earning him numerous appearances on Fox News. He has helped the network spread a slew of dangerous...

    More than a week after convicted felon and former state Sen. Gary George was expected to disclose who is funding his longshot bid for Congress, he has still not done so. Until George files the report, voters will not find out who, if anyone, is backing his longshot bid to unseat U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore, a Milwaukee Democrat. In an abrupt phone interview Wednesday with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, George declined to explain himself, telling a reporter he had no time to talk and would only take questions by email. “I’ve got to go,” George said. By email, George’s campaign...

    Madison — Felon and former state Sen. Gary George will be able to mount his long-shot primary challenge to U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore after all. The state elections board voted unanimously to reject a challenge to George's nomination signatures and allow him on the ballot to challenge fellow Democrat Moore for Congress. The Government Accountability Board met at the Capitol on Tuesday to certify candidates for the Aug. 12 ballot. Milwaukee union official Sheila Cochran had challenged hundreds of the signatures George submitted on his nomination papers, saying they were collected by convicted felons, among other problems. Board staff said,...

    "I am dismayed and disgusted that the Republican Party has taken their ideological fight over Obamacare this far," a statement from Democratic Rep. Gwen Moore of Milwaukee said, referring to the Republican's repeated efforts to link a short-term bill to keep the government open to delaying or defunding President Obama's signature health care law. "This childish act not only impacts thousands of federal government employees, it could also close the vital nutrition program for Women, Infants and Children, temporarily suspend government-backed small business loans and send a devastating shock wave through our economy." Moore implored House Republican leaders to allow...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., June 19, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Although religious rhetoric is usually associated with the pro-life movement, one Democrat sounded like a hellfire and brimstone preacher while defending late-term abortion on the floor of the House of Representatives on Tuesday. “This bill is an abomination!” said Rep. Gwen Moore, D-WI. “Plain and simple, at its foundation, at its heart, is utter disrespect for the dignity and health of women.” Arizona Congressman Trent Franks introduced the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” (H.R. 1797) to prevent atrocities like those committed by Kermit Gosnell and Douglas Karpen, who are accused (and in the...
