    The House on Thursday rejected a Democratic resolution that condemned Oversight & Government Affairs Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) for shutting down a committee hearing without letting any Democrat speak. With dozens of Democrats standing by her, Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) proposed the resolution Thursday morning, a day after Issa held a combative hearing with a former IRS official involved in the IRS targeting scandal.

    VIDEO: 4 minutes - Rep. Marcia Fudge's oral presentation of the privileged resolution on House floor. The chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus is calling House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to be stripped of his gavel for his behavior at a contentious IRS hearing on Wednesday. Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) told Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Thursday that Issa’s conduct in the hearing — which included cutting off the microphone of Rep. Elijah Cummings (Md.), the ranking Democrat — amounted to “an affront to the expectations of the American people.” Fudge also said Issa should apologize on the House...

    The White House is delaying the deadline to buy health insurance by six weeks amid growing House Democratic concerns that the ObamaCare enrollment site’s botched rollout will prevent them from winning the House in 2014. Congressional Democrats believe they have a real opportunity to bump Republicans from power because of the government shutdown, which dealt a serious blow to GOP poll numbers. Their momentum will disappear, they say, if problems persist with HealthCare.gov. Still, many Democrats outwardly said they have little concern that the current website problems will resound at the polls a year from now. “By the time we...

    “The Congressional Black Caucus has long been a champion for the Affordable Care Act,” Rep. Marcia L. Fudge wrote in an email. “We advocated for Community Health Centers that will now receive $11 billion to treat their patients, most of whom are people of color or from low-income and rural communities. We have hosted town halls and information sessions to make sure our communities are ready to participate in the state and federal exchanges.” “The CBC will continue to stand up, speak out and defend the Affordable Care Act. I am proud that we have not allowed anyone to stop...

    Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) said Wednesday that it was up to Congress to end discrimination in the criminal justice system and "to make sure that no child goes hungry to school or to bed." Speaking at the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, Fudge said she was the chair of the CBC "because Dr. Martin Luther King acted upon his dream." "In 1963, there were five members of the Congressional Black Caucus," Fudge said. "Today, there are 44 African-American members in Congress." Fudge went on to demand her fellow lawmakers echo King's "call to action" by...

    The confirmations of two African-American judicial candidates in Florida are being held up by U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio and Congressional Black Caucus leaders are demanding action for what they call negligence and obstruction on the part of the senator. Brian Davis, a nominee for the U.S. District Court for the Middle District, and William Thomas, a candidate for the U.S District Court for the Southern District, both made it through Florida’s Federal Judicial Nominating Commission, which routinely makes recommendations to state senators who meet the candidates and send letters of initial approval to the White House. Then, the president nominates...

    The chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus says there's "a broader discussion that we need to have [about] how we are treating poor and minority people in this country." In a roundtable discussion on NBC's "Meet the Press" about how much the federal government -- and President Barack Obama -- can do to address racial inequality in the wake of the Trayvon Martin case, Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) cited the Supreme Court's recent ruling that "gutted" the Voting Rights Act, as well as the exclusion of food stamps in the House farm bill. "We are being attacked from so many...

    April 23, 2013 New Congressional Quest: End Prison Phone Call Price Gouging Bridget Johnson The Congressional Black Caucus Working Group on Prison Telecomm Reform is protesting high call costs for phone-homers behind bars. The CBC group will hold a press conference with former inmates and family members “to expose the often exorbitant rates that prisoners and their families are being charged for telephone calls and to announce the CBC response to the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to resolve the issue after more than a decade of delay,” according to D.C. Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton’s (D)...

    Rep. Marcia Fudge didn’t sugarcoat her feelings about the fact that President Barack Obama has not yet chosen any African-Americans to fill open high-level positions in his second term. “The people you have chosen to appoint in this new term have hardly been reflective of this country’s diversity,” the chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus wrote in a terse letter to Obama this month. “Their ire is compounded by the overwhelming support you’ve received from the African-American community.” The letter’s tone and tenor typifies the blunt, hard-charging style of Fudge, an Ohio Democrat, and signals a shift in how the...

    Rep. Marcia Fudge (D.-Ohio), the incoming chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, is accusing Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz) of "sexism and racism" because the criticism leveled at U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice for telling the American people that the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was a spontaneous reaction to a video posted on YouTube. “There is a clear, a clear in my opinion, sexism and racism that goes with these comments that are being made by, unfortunately, Senator McCain and others,” Fudge (D-Ohio.) said Friday at a Capitol Hill press conference. On Thursday, the Congressional Black...
