Cummings doesn’t have Executive power and never has. You can blame a Mayor, or a Governor or a President for a share of that because all of those have Executive Power, and all have a shared responsibility . A legislator doesn’t have that degree of power, nor as much of the individual responsibility that comes with it. If you don’t know the difference between the power and authority of the Executive and Legislative Branch, a middle schooler could probably assist you.

My gourd is quite fine, but thanks for asking.

Trump is making racism part of his campaign strategy as it very much appeals to and ignites his base. The question is then will his next campaign for the WH be the most overtly racist since George Wallace?

Democrat leadership and their policies have lead to a national human tragedy in cities all across America and no one can deny Baltimore has a unaddressed crisis !!! Two of the last 3 mayors were forced to resign over corruption scandals !!!

You might want to also look into Kushner Properties. It may be a tempting opportunity to funnel a little federal money into the family.

Squeezing the federal lemon so the juice runs down the Trump thigh and into his properties seems to be his only governmental expertise.

Who will fix Baltimore? The people that live there. It's no one else's responsibility. If not, not.

Who fixed New York City?
Back in the 70s and 80s, NYC was the nation's crime capital and was the center of all that was evil in the folks' minds who didn't live there.

Not now, and not for a long time. NYC still has it's big city problems, but squalor isn't one any more.

There was nothing done in NYC that cannot be done in Baltimore, or in any of our large cities. Each differs in many respects, for sure, but each problem is similar to another city's, so there are answers to be found, and those answers are probably local in origin.

Yeah. He is yet to have the same vitriolic response to a white liberal. Schumer and Peolsi get off easy compared to The Squad and Rep. Cummings. All Cummings did was give the DHS secretary Hell and rightfully so for the subhuman conditions at the detention centers. And today the Weights and Means Committee (which Cummings is on as chair) released a report about the corrupt head of the Trump inauguration.

I would generally agree with that... until they get federal money. Then they are on the hook.

Did you know Cummings district received almost $16B in government money in 2018?

More about Elijah Cummings’ 7th congressional district in Maryland

Cummings’ congressional district received just under $15.7 billion in grants, benefits and other assistance from the federal government in Fiscal Year 2018, according to Newsweek’s analysis of the federal awards data compiled by USAspending.gov.

Default Elijah Cummings finds out who his friends are.

So when Rashida Tlaib accused Republican Representative Mark Meadows of racism, Democrat Elijah Cummings immediately came to his defense. You see, he considers Meadows to be one of his “best friends.” They’ve worked on legislation together several times although Cummings admits that they agree on little.

But when Trump called Cummings a racist, guess what Cummings got from Meadows in the way of support? Oh yeah...crickets. Some friend, right?

Totally emblematic of the GOP. This is why I say that they’re hostile and can’t be trusted.

To her credit, Mia Love exhorted Meadows to speak out in support of his friend. But then, Mia Love in no longer in Washington, is she?


Quote:
Trump's comments hung in the air for days, sparking yet another conversation about the President's race-focused rhetoric. Republicans largely stayed silent, including Meadows, whose warm relationship with Cummings prompted questions about his reticence to defend his friend.

When Meadows finally did issue a reply, it came two days later and second-hand, delivered live on air by CNN contributor and former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum. The statement was a perfect distillation of the way Republicans have tip-toed around Trump's inflammatory language about race -- and avoided criticizing the President directly.
