In excerpt from Democratic response, Kennedy touts 'Better Deal'

In excerpt from Democratic response, Kennedy touts 'Better Deal'”

"While President Trump has consistently broken his promises to the middle class, Congressman Kennedy profoundly understands the challenges facing hard-working men and women across the country".

Democratic policies that exemplify those values, according to Kennedy, include a "living wage, paid leave and affordable child care"; a health care system that "offers mercy"; and an "economy strong enough to boast record stock prices and courageous enough to admit that top CEOs making 300 times the average worker is not right".

Sanders' speech has further fueled speculation of a possible 2020 presidential bid, but it's not the first time the Vermont senator has gone rogue by delivering an unofficial response to a president's address to Congress; Sanders did the same thing past year when Trump spoke before Congress shortly after his inauguration.

The 37-year-old is now serving his third term as US Representative of MA 4th Congressional District.

"There's an bad lot that unites a factory worker in Fall River and a factory worker in Tulsa", Kennedy said. But people here are tough.

Other Democrats wore purple ribbons to support funding to fight the opioid crisis and rebuke what they call the president's inaction on the issue. Someone said that's "not nice" and Pelosi looked around, sticking out her arms, as if she was trying to quiet them.

At this point, Kennedy has not shared his plans for 2020 publicly, but last fall, he said he would consider running for Senate at some point in the future. "That - more than any law or leader, debate work disagreement - that is what drives us towards progress". "This administration isn't just targeting the laws that protect us", he stated.

His father, Joseph P. Kennedy II, was elected to Congress in 1986; his parents were divorced in 1991.

Elon Musk Now Selling Flamethrowers
However, to embrace the fire power that could be quite useful in case of a zombie apocalypse they will have to wait until spring. And, apparently, selling flamethrowers, since he put a limited edition flamethrower up for $500 a pop, limited to 20,000 units.

Going further than just refusing to block federal anti-marijuana enforcement in legal states, Kennedy voted three times against amendments to increase military veterans' access to medical cannabis - just one of five Democrats to oppose the measure in 2016.

Joe Kennedy, a member of the Kennedy political dynasty, delivered the official Democratic response to Donald Trump's State of the Union address on Tuesday, warning that the USA president had ushered in an era of divisiveness and hatred. By an Administration that callously appraises our worthiness and decides who makes the cut and who can be bargained away.

In announcing their decision, Democratic leaders in Congress called Kennedy a "relentless fighter for working Americans". (It used to be a conservative mantra.) He continued, "We are bombarded with one false choice after another". Rural communities or inner cities? "The coast or the heartland", asking the American people to not leave anyone behind.

"So here is the answer the Democrats offer tonight: we choose both".

How Does Apple HomePod Sounds Like?

After graduating in Harvard Law school in 2009, Kennedy worked as an assistant DA in several MA counties, and in February of 2012, he announced his intention to run for the state's 4th congressional district seat, which was open following Barney Frank's retirement.
