Congressman Elijah Cummings: Blacks Need To Know Obama Feels Their Pain, Obama Needs To Know Blacks Want Him To Bypass Congress, Dictate Laws


“Work alone”, as Cummings says below, means dictate laws via executive order and illegal powers granted to federal agencies, ala the amnesty fiat.

Politico:

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said Sunday that the African-American community is feeling “totally frustrated” by the country’s sour economic situation.

“We are totally frustrated, and they need to know that the president feels their pain,” Cummings said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Earlier, Cummings, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, said that “almost every African-American person I spoke to said [President Barack Obama] needs to fight, and fight harder.”

“Their attitude is … if Republicans aren’t going to work with us, we’re just going to have to work alone,” Cummings told host Candy Crowley.

Calling himself a “big supporter” of Obama, Cummings said then-Sen. Obama had promised to tell Americans what they need to hear, and not what they want to hear.

“We need to do the same thing with this president,” he said. “He needs to hear that there are a lot of people suffering.”
