Great interview this morning with Cindy Bernal at NBC-Telemundo on our House vote to lift the family welfare cap. Third time’s a charm. 1000s of children will have access to benefits for food and clothing, regardless of when they were born. Very grateful for the leadership of House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo and my House colleagues in their support to lift the family welfare cap. It takes a village—could not have lifted the family welfare cap without the support of so many incredible advocates as well. Thankful to you all. ... See MoreSee Less

Yesterday, I had the honor of delivering the closing speech and leading a rapid round of fundraising. In less than 15 minutes, we raised $10k for Tutoring Plus of Cambridge. For 55 years, Tutoring Plus has provided Cambridge students with mentors and tutors. Tutoring Plus ensures that families who are economically vulnerable can access additional academic support. Often, the tutoring leads to strong mentor relationships and can have a transformative impact on the whole family. We know Tutoring Plus also plays an important role in supporting the work of our teachers who everyday are asked to do so much for their students and their families...more than is possible or should be expected. To everyone who volunteers in any capacity, thank you for being a part of our village. I am grateful to Executive Director Kathryn Fenneman for her hard work to keep this program thriving and am equally thankful for everyone’s strong support of such program. Thank you to all who donated last night. ... See MoreSee Less

I am thankful to House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo and my colleagues in both branches for continued support of the earned income tax credit (EITC). In less than 4 years, we have doubled the tax credit from 15% to 30%. One job should be enough but we know it’s not enough for low-wage workers. We will continue to work to increase wages and expand job and educational opportunities. We should also continue to expand the EITC. At this moment, we know it’s one of the strongest and most effective tools to lift families out of poverty. ... See MoreSee Less
