Cory Booker 4 minutes ago:   Friday Apr 19 - 2:27pm In the wealthiest country in the world, we've got to do more to ensure hard-working Americans can provide for themselves and their families. This plan will lift 15 million Americans out of poverty and help nearly half of all Americans pay for the rising cost of living. Cory Booker 9 minutes ago:   Friday Apr 19 - 2:23pm A cost-of-living refund matters to a low-income student who under the current code is excluded from benefits. The Rise Credit will help—30 percent of college students in this country struggle just to buy food. Cory Booker 14 minutes ago:   Friday Apr 19 - 2:18pm That matters to people caring for kids or elderly or sick family members, whose annual out-of-pocket costs to support their loved ones can reach the thousands. Combined with their own cost of living, the expenses can be crippling. Cory Booker 17 minutes ago:   Friday Apr 19 - 2:14pm The Rise Credit would expand eligibility of the Earned Income Tax Credit to include those typically left out—students, caregivers, & most people without kids—giving households a cost-of-living refund of up to $8,000. Cory Booker 21 minutes ago:   Friday Apr 19 - 2:10pm The cost of living is rising and families and individuals are struggling under current tax codes. The solution is simple—give them a refund. That's what the Rise Credit will do. https://t.co/zlei5Tlo9n

We made it easier. Here’s a searchable version: https://t.co/0QWPT5IQVP Cory Booker 1 day ago:   Thursday Apr 18 - 10:03am The American people deserve the truth.
Not spin from a Trump appointee.
Release Mueller's full report now. Cory Booker 1 day ago:   Thursday Apr 18 - 8:24am Think about it this way: Trump's transgender military ban is crushing careers, taking food off of families' tables, and now it's barring this student from receiving an education.
Oh. And it's bigoted.

—Voters were purged from rolls
—Voter ID laws targeted people of color
—Elections were stolen
We need policy to preserve our right to vote. And it’s a shame we’re still fighting the same struggle of past generations. https://t.co/mACJOJYsDA Cory Booker 1 day ago:   Wednesday Apr 17 - 3:25pm College costs have increased 8 times faster than wages since the 1980s. Rents are rapidly increasing. The cost of living overall is rising—the fastest rate in 10 years. People quite literally can't afford to live in America & we can't wait for a solution. https://t.co/NHwFSJy1bVhttps://t.co/Gi1fch5Zeu
Link to Image Cory Booker 2 days ago:   Wednesday Apr 17 - 1:49pm It should make us all pause that we have a tax system that doesn't benefit the majority of hard-working people in this country. The Rise Credit is a common sense approach—lowering annual tax bills and expanding eligibility for tax credits will leave families with more money. https://t.co/JGJnwJ7dpB Cory Booker 2 days ago:   Wednesday Apr 17 - 12:15pm I'll see you soon, Georgia.

There's nothing courageous about this leadership. It's cowardly. https://t.co/Ue0W5yv17o

When I say love will win in 2020, I’m speaking from experience. I've seen it in action in a city with serious challenges and a lot of naysayers. So I know it works. Cory Booker 6 days ago:   Saturday Apr 13 - 1:06pm Newark entered its largest period of economic growth since the 1960s. We built grocery stores in food deserts and businesses downtown. We made ambitious changes to city schools and created parks. Cory Booker 6 days ago:   Saturday Apr 13 - 1:06pm And with this in mind, I was able to become a part of the community of activists already urgently working to change their circumstances and transform our city. And together, we achieved a lot. Cory Booker 6 days ago:   Saturday Apr 13 - 1:05pm “The world you see outside of you is a reflection of what you have inside of you,” she would say. If you only see darkness, that’s how you’re going to see cities, like Newark, that have faced economic insecurity, gun violence, corruption, failing education... Cory Booker 6 days ago:   Saturday Apr 13 - 1:03pm Ms. Jones had reason to fall into the seduction of despair—her son was fatally shot in our lobby—but she didn't. She taught me that Newark didn’t need saving from our perceived destruction. It was the rest of the nation that needed help to see the goodness of this community. Cory Booker 6 days ago:   Saturday Apr 13 - 1:03pm When I moved here 20+ years ago, this city quickly humbled me. I met a woman named Virginia Jones, the tenant president in the projects where I lived & learned to see the promise of Newark amidst the very real pain. Cory Booker 6 days ago:   Saturday Apr 13 - 1:02pm Today we're hosting our Hometown Kickoff in Newark.
