Both Cummings and Kucinich appeared powerful and confident as they rightfully, and respectfully, informed Mr. Cantor of the rules of the hearing, insuring they get their fair amount of allotted time.
As far as the democrat’s strategy moving forward, Cummings stated that he “hopes everyone can come to an understanding regarding affirmative actions. We want all decisions to come through either the Supreme Court or the state court, but we want the American people to know we support equal opportunity and believe the best way to [ensure equal opportunity] is through affirmative action programs.” Kucinich added that “republicans need to understand that these programs do not disregard the other aspects of one’s application, but those aspects are viewed in addition to viewing one’s ethnicity in the college process.”
Mr. Cummings and Mr. Kucinich agree that “education is the most important thing” and they assure the American people they will fight so everyone can have an equal opportunity in experiencing that education. #
