District work weeks


Rep. Capuano (D-MA) writes:

The drive to achieve commonsense gun reform continues gathering momentum. After participating in Saturday’s March for our Lives I joined the Randolph Youth Council for a rally on gun reform. It is truly inspiring to watch our young women and men take the lead on this issue, magnifying our voices and demanding change.

On Monday evening, I was invited to speak at a new member meeting of the Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America. I talked with a committed and energized group of women who are determined to make an impact on policy and support the students involved in this movement. Next week I’ll be talking with Somerville students about gun reform and their experiences participating in this national call for change. I noted in February that the calls for commonsense gun reform felt different after Parkland and I am seeing that in every event I attend and every conversation I have on this issue. Let’s keep pushing.

Tom Reed, he lay low. He was scarcely seen nor heard this vacation week. Astonishingly, Congress is expected to accomplish nothing more of significance, good or bad, this year.

    And Chris Collins was invited to a student forum and he refused giving no excuse for his refusal and when WGRZ called for a comment he refused to comment but his staff sent out one of those PR blanket statement about working for what’s best for the nation.
    Reed & Collins proposed a gun bill that would decimate the NY SAFE ACT to pander for their base. Seems they are afraid of the #BlueWave. It’s okay, I have an appointment in NYC at 30 Rock in 2 weeks that will shake Reed’s dirty laundry out on the line. I’m putting my $$ where my mouth and solid information is.

    Maybe Congress could start working on the budget for Fiscal Year 2019, which starts on October 1, 2018.

    Rich, it’s more likely there will be several C.R.’s before that happens.

    Reed’s last “message” (paid for by the taxpayer, touts the great “tax reform” bill. He says it will give a tax cut of $1600 to a “typical family”. I guess that means a family of four. However, the analysis by the NY State Dept of Taxation show something else.

    Since the tax bill was aimed specifically at the “blue states” with higher state taxes, New Yorkers will see a different result. A $ 14,000,000,000 loss of income by citizens and corporations.. So, the average cost to a “typical” family in NY will be $700 per person or a total of $ 2800.

    Tom supported a bill that has a net loss of $1200 for a family of 4 in NY. Might be great for Texas and Mississippi…not so good for the NY-23 residents.

    (Note: I used Reed’s own links to the Tax Foundation Study for this data)
