In Springfield today to announce more than $7.9 million in grants from @NBRC_Team to boost job growth in #VT. These funds will help grow our workforce, repair our infrastructure & give Vermont workers new skills for the modern economy.
We chose Springfield for this announcement because of @BRICvt. Their coworking & incubation space, & goal of growing startups in VT, is the type of project I had in mind when I expanded NBRC in the #FarmBill so all of VT would be eligible. They are receiving a $235k grant.
Federal grants will support the redevelopment of Main St in @Winooskivt, infrastructure in Newport, Burke, St. Albans & Randolph. Childcare & workforce efforts supported by @LetsGrowKids & @VTRoundtable.

The @USDA released a proposed rule to change the way states determine who qualifies for #SNAP, known as #CalFresh in CA. Today, I led my Democratic colleagues from the California Congressional Delegation in urging @SecretarySonny to rescind the proposal:…
California has relied on categorical eligibility to eliminate the asset test for #CalFresh. This ensures low-income families with substantial housing and childcare costs are still able to put food on their tables.
As members of Congress committed to an effective federal nutrition assistance program, we worked hard to pass a bipartisan #FarmBill that maintained states’ ability to opt into broad-based categorical eligibility.@USDA proposed rule would have harmful effects-it must be rescinded

[Kiernan] Today I’ll be shadowing Senator Leahy as part of my paid internship. I’m from beautiful @MorrisvilleVT and study political science at @AmericanU. Excited for a busy day as the Senator meets with constituents, committees, dignitaries, and advocates.
[Kiernan] Starting off the day in a @senjudiciary executive business meeting where the Senator spoke out against Trump’s installation of Whitaker as Acting AG. The Committee also reported #Vermont’s US Marshal nominee Brad LaRose for a vote on the Senate floor unanimously.

In the US Senate, I've made it a priority to raise awareness about the challenges in Indian Country & help stand up for Native American families. Follow along today and on Monday to learn more.
84% of Native American women experience violence in their lifetime. But outside of Indian Country, few people are aware of this epidemic. That’s why I introduced #SavannasAct to help law enforcement crack down on these horrible crimes.
Combating the crisis of missing & murdered Native American women is about hope, justice & letting Native women across the country know that they're #NotInvisible—and that’s what #SavannasAct aims to help achieve. Read more @inforum…

Literally right as House & Senate began conference on the #FarmBill this morning, @USDA released a report finding 15 MILLION American households—about 1 in 6—struggled to put food on the table at some point last year.…
Yet House Republicans, led by @ConawayTX11, are STILL pushing for massive cuts to nutrition assistance that would take food away from 2 million Americans.
These are the members of Congress who are deciding whether to maintain food assistance through SNAP—or to take food out of the mouths of hungry kids & families to pay for millionaire & corporate tax cuts👇👇👇 #handsoffSNAP #FarmBill

We are 527 days into this Congress.

Do not lose track of the recent Republican actions (or lack thereof) and their consequences. Thread ⬇️:

69: Times House GOP voted to repeal or undermine the ACA since 2011

If you, like me, cannot point to a single thing @RepFrenchHill has done for the benefit of his constituents in #AR2 then you owe it to yourself and everyone else in the seven county area to vote for @clarketucker this November. #arpx #Vote #Midterms2018
.@RepFrenchHill has voted to end coverage for pre-existing conditions. He doesn't care whether or not you can afford to see a doctor, or even if your health insurance will cover a visit. He does not care about #Arkansans #AR2 #ByeFrench #VoteThemOut #arpx
.@RepFrenchHill supports @realDonaldTrump #ConcentrationCamps for migrant children, infants, and toddlers. He refuses to speak up about these egregious #HumanRights violations. #Arkansas deserves a better, more humane representative in #AR2 - @clarketucker is that person! #Vote

Shania Twain.
Being offensive doesn't mean you are being honest. It just means you are offensive. I used to respect you but you obviously haven't been paying attention to how Trump is an admitted sexual predator who is literally trying to take food out of the mouths of kids.
As he and the Republicans try to pass the #FarmBill that sets Single parents up to fail and will literally starve poor and low income children and adults, elderly, and disabled people who hone can't work or who do work as much as they can thus
"Working poor" , losing foodstamps.
3 who honestly can't work... typo, all simply because Trump and the
Republicans hate the poor just for being poor, seek to punish and humiliate them , and are evil and have no compassion. So while you admire Trump the sociopath's honesty, he's trying to kill poor people.
