Congressman Cleaver Speaks on Missouri River Flooding
Currently farmland and homes are underwater along the Missouri River, from Montana to my home state of Missouri. Record snow melt runoff this spring along with unexpected record rainfall in the upper river basin filled up the reservoirs in eastern Montana and the Dakotas and forced the Army Corps of Engineers to release large amounts of water from the reservoirs to keep them from overflowing. That excess water has flowed downstream, creating a path of destruction in its wake.

Congressman Cleaver Speaks on the House Floor on Defense Spending
Funding the military is imperative, and supporting our troops at home and abroad is fundamental, but overfunding it at the expense of vital domestic programs is irresponsible. The Defense Appropriations bill is $8 billion more than the agreed upon level set by the Budget Control Act. This means that real programs in our home districts which many of our constituents rely on - programs that provide affordable housing, healthy food, and education for our children - will go unfunded. Every family in America knows what it is to make a budget and the reasons behind needing a budget. This bill blatantly ignores the need and purpose of a budget. Certain aspects of this bill are hundreds of millions of dollars above requested levels. If a family tried to live like that they would be in dire straits fast and that is where we are headed. Designating money when it is above and beyond what is needed is a gratuitous earmark to say the least. We should be focusing on the warfighter and their individual needs rather than funneling money into projects that have proven time and time again to be a waste of money.

Congressman Cleaver Speaks on the House Floor on UASI Funding
Limiting FY12 UASI funding to the top 10 cities would, again, detrimentally harm my district." "As the Representative of the Missouri Fifth District, it is my job to work to protect the citizens of my district, and it is my goal to ensure that first responders in Kansas City are given the resources they need to keep our homes secure. As I have said many times, the U.S. budget is a moral document, a bold testimony to our national priorities. It is my priority to fight to provide UASI funding to the Kansas City area. This is why I stand in support of UASI funds and the amendment to restore this funding to more than the top 10 cities that has been offered by the gentleman from New York.

Congressman Cleaver Speaks on Extending Unemployment Insurance
At the end of this year almost two million Americans -- they have names, they have faces, they have families -- two million Americans will lose their unemployment benefits and a total of over six million Americans will lose benefits next year, unless this body decides to become functional. In Missouri, my home state, 40,400 citizens depend on unemployment benefits. Many more are unemployed and not receiving any help at all. In Missouri the unemployment rate is almost 9%. I grew up in public housing. Yes, public housing. My father worked three jobs to get us out. He worked three jobs to send me and three sisters through college, and my mother through college when I was in the eighth grade. And so I always resent any implication that people don't want to work. And so as we move into a holiday season, a season of hope, my hope is that the Congress of the United States will not snatch hope from over two million Americans.

Congressman Cleaver Counts Down the Reasons for a Real Transportation Bill
If legislation is not enacted by the end of this month, programs across the country will expire, putting more American jobs at risk and threatening the safety of our bridges and roads. This would spell disaster for the economy and for all of those hard-working men and women who will pay the price for these political games. 2.2 million construction and manufacturing workers are already out of work, and this showdown is taking place at what should be the peak of construction season. Some lawmakers have endorsed the idea of extending the highway program for six-months if an agreement can't be reached. But local businessmen and women tell me that is not enough for them to continue the planning and execution of long-term projects. Or even short-term projects. Barely enough time to begin preparing pink slips.

Congressman Cleaver on the Supreme Court Ruling on the Affordable Care Act
"This is certainly an historic day in this country -- but not a day to deepen our divisions or throw up our hands and say our work is done. For all Americans, Republicans and Democrats, the states and the federal government must continue to work together to make sure healthcare is functional, full, and fair. Because of healthcare, millions of seniors are getting free preventive services, children are not being denied coverage, and young adults are covered under their parents' plan. These are big and important differences helping millions of Americans focus on their jobs and quality of life, instead of worrying about what will happen if they and their family members get injured or sick." -Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, II

I will continue working for the Latino community’s top priorities.

Congressman Cleaver Brings a Special Order on the Rwandan Genocide
We are here to remember the victims of this horrific event in our world's history, honor the survivors, and recognize the steps that have been taken to remedy the atrocities that occurred. We are here to recognize and recall, to redouble our efforts against evil and against inaction. We must continue the fight for justice as the international tribunal created to judge these crimes has delivered only 49 convictions, out of 95 indictments since 1995. We know that when we say, never again, we must never falter. As we strive to achieve this justice, we mourn the tragic loss of those who were victims to this genocide.
