So often we talk about living the American dream. We are a culture where success and prosperity are celebrated. However, we do not talk nearly as often about the reality of many people in our communities living with much less. The unfortunate truth is that the current welfare system has a created a cycle of poverty and dependence that is difficult to break. This is one of the major problems facing America today and deserves the attention of America's lawmakers. That's why House Republicans recently unveiled the "A Better Way" agenda, including a plan to fight poverty, which is available online at better.gop <iqconnect.lmhostediq.com/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx &crop=14443.4190611.2881459.7665219&report_id=&redirect=http%3a%2f%2fbet ter.gop&redir_log=348671156759121> . <iqconnect.lmhostediq.com/iqextranet/Customers/VA06BG/WelfareCol umn.jpg> In order to break the cycle of poverty, we must reward work. A job is a critical step on the ladder out of poverty. Under this plan, if someone is able to work, they should work. Not surprisingly, 89 percent of Americans agree, but our welfare programs do not reflect this attitude. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly referred to as food stamps, was originally intended as an income supplement to help needy individuals and families meet their nutritional needs. However, an increasing number of recipients are work-capable adults with no dependents and who are not seeking employment. This program is no longer functioning properly, and needs careful reform to ensure that it is not discouraging folks from working. Another idea in the agenda is to improve schools and skills. One way to help the next generation escape poverty is to provide them workforce training that leads to better opportunities by preparing them for the jobs in demand today. A large component of this is making sure state and local leaders have more authority in making these decisions, not the Washington bureaucracy. They are the ones who ultimately know what students need most. Additionally, one of the most important pieces of this plan is implementing tools to assess results and increase accountability to taxpayers. Continuing to throw money at a problem without really measuring if the program works is poor stewardship of hard-earned taxpayer dollars. Success of a program should be measured by how many people are truly given a hand up out of poverty and into deeper engagement with our economies and communities. There is a better way to fight poverty in America. The ideas included in this agenda are just the starting point for discussion in Congress. But it's a combined effort � food pantries, churches, and other charities are doing their part, and I am proud to see the work of these groups in the Sixth District to help those who need it most. That's how we break the cycle of poverty. And that's how we all benefit � by helping more people reach their full potential. It's Outrageous --> DOJ Must Combat Asylum Fraud These are the stories that leave you shaking your head.

Anne, we’ve got to keep up this fight →
"This is an extraordinary time to be a woman. The progress we've made in the past 100 years, 50 years, and, yes, even the past eight years has made life significantly better for my daughters than it was for my grandmothers... Two hundred and forty years after our nation's founding, and almost a century after women finally won the right to vote, for the first time ever, a woman is a major political party's presidential nominee...and it's just one more example of how far women have come on the long journey toward equality." --President Barack Obama Let's celebrate Women's Equality Day by doing everything we can to elect Hillary Clinton and great Democratic women up and down the ticket this November: my.democrats.org/Stronger-Together

The road to equality
Friend -- Ninety-six years ago, our country became more equal as women gained the right to vote through the certification of the 19th Amendment. Today marks Women's Equality Day, when we celebrate that incredible milestone. But today isn't just a day to look back -- it's our opportunity to look forward at how far we still have to go to ensure equality for all women. On average, full-time working women are paid only 79 percent of what men earn, and women of color often experience an even wider gap. Across the country, women face barriers and restrictions when it comes to accessing reproductive health care. And in too many workplaces, moms (and dads) are forced to make the unfair decision between staying home with a sick child or collecting a paycheck. We can -- and should -- do better. This movement has made progress on a range of issues affecting women today -- from paid family leave and equal pay to affordable health care, to name a few. But we still have a long road ahead to ensure that women in the United States are treated equally and with respect. I'm proud to be one of the many in this movement that's committed to keeping up the fight for women's equality. Add your name to say you are, too: my.barackobama.com/Stand-Up-For-Equality Part of my work at OFA involves engaging with supporters from all over the country, and every day I am inspired by the amazing things women are doing. Whether they're serving in our military, raising families, or running their own companies -- they're an inspiration to us all. And let's not forget the women shattering glass ceilings in every industry, like winning a ridiculous number of gold medals in the Olympic Games, or making a difference on Capitol Hill as one of the more than 100 women currently elected to Congress. As a woman working in the progressive movement, and the daughter and granddaughter of women who have fought for equality, I can't help but be incredibly proud of how far we have come. But I also recognize the tough work that lies ahead to make sure all women are truly treated as equal. We can't afford to stop pushing now. Say you'll take a stand in this fight. Together, we'll keep going until all women have the equality and security they deserve: my.barackobama.com/Stand-Up-For-Equality Thanks, Alex Alexandra Woodward Deputy Director Organizing for Action

SMASH the Zika mosquitoes
Richard Burr, US Senator North Carolina Survey/Question [survey] The number of confirmed cases of the Zika virus in the US is on the rise and we continue to learn new information about the devastating effects this disease can have on pregnant women and babies. Just this week, there were reports [link 1] that scientists had found that the Zika virus can be present in an infant�s blood for much longer than previously thought and may harm a child�s development -- even when the child appears to be born without Zika-related birth defects. I believe that we need to use all of the tools available to combat this health crisis -- from the research and development of a vaccine, to simple yet common-sense measures like mosquito control. [image = burr.enews.senate.gov//images/user_images/Burr_Zika_interview.JPG] [link 2] WATCH [link 3]: Burr discusses bipartisan SMASH Act Recently, I introduced the bipartisan SMASH Act [link 4] which supports states and local governments in controlling the mosquitoes that spread Zika. We must take the fight to defeat Zika to its source�the mosquitos that spread it. I am committed to protecting North Carolinians from Zika, and the SMASH Act will help us be better prepared for this and the future threats we may face.

Will you make one of the 4,598 donations we still need, Anne?
Anne -- Democrats are no strangers to a challenge, and we never back down from what we believe in. We know what it's like to stare down critics and bullies without breaking our stride. That's why I know you'll step up when it matters. You're not afraid of the work that lies ahead of us. You're resilient. You get that the stakes are too high to be lulled into complacency. I'm looking to you to help us hit our goal of 60,000 donations before midnight. With only 75 days left until Election Day, that kind of investment is what we need to put this campaign and our candidates in the best possible position to win, and to take the fight to Donald Trump and the GOP. Chip in $3 or more now -- show that you're not staying silent: my.democrats.org/75-Day-Goal Thanks for all you do, Anne. Hillary

He's actually proud of this:
Friend -- Earlier this month, while on recess from Congress, the Senate Majority Leader said this to a crowd of supporters: "One of my proudest moments is when I looked at Barack Obama in the eye and I said, 'Mr. President, you will not fill this Supreme Court vacancy.'" --Mitch McConnell For someone who has been in office for 30 years, that's pretty sad. Senate leaders need to know it's unacceptable to keep blocking President Obama's Supreme Court nominee. OFA supporters are ramping up to hold them accountable when Congress returns to work on September 6 -- help make sure the movement's ready.

How would we explain President Trump to our kids?
Hi there, Usually I look at elections in terms of what and how much EMILY's List can do. But lately, I've been thinking a lot about what this year's races mean to me as a parent. I'm thrilled that my five-year-old daughter will grow up thinking it's normal for a woman to run for president. But every time she catches a clip of Donald Trump on the news, I get worried. It's not easy to explain to a child why one of our presidential candidates is on TV yelling about banning a whole community, hurling insults at women, and mocking a reporter with a disability. This year we have the choice between electing strong leaders who will serve as role models for our children and electing hateful extremists like Trump and the Republicans who support him. Donate to help defeat Trump and Republicans who support him up and down the ballot: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20160825_email_Parent As parents we try to teach our children to be good people -- to be kind, to think of others, to be honest, and to have empathy. How will we explain it to our kids if our country elects a man who wants to deport their classmates and who calls women names that even a child knows is wrong? No parent wants to have that conversation, and I'm doubling down to make sure none of us have to after November. Our kids and country deserve better. Donate to help elect leaders who will inspire the next generation: secure.emilyslist.org/page/contribute/20160825_email_Parent Thanks for being part of this, Leigh K.

Today, the National Park Service oversees more than 400 sites nationwide � from the Statue of Liberty, to the Grand Canyon, to Gettysburg National Military Park just over the border in Pennsylvania and even Delaware's very own First State National Historical Park <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=17948.18227474.11813346.15290910&report_id=&redirect=https%3a%2f%2f www.nps.gov%2ffrst%2findex.htm&redir_log=506756657353240> .

I am incredibly proud of the work we did to ensure Delaware could tell its unique story. Not only does our national park highlight Delaware's history and bring tourists to our state, but it also allowed us to celebrate the National Park Service's Centennial right here in the First State! But our work is far from over. We now need to make sure our park gets the attention and visitors it deserves. That is why yesterday, to wish the National Park Service a happy birthday and show off our park, I joined Department of the Interior Deputy Secretary Mike Connor in visiting a few of the sites and discussing the needs of our park as a whole. <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/Customers/Sen_Carper/Fort_Christ ina.JPG> First, we visited Fort Christina just outside of Wilmington along the banks of the Christina River. It was here, over 375 years ago, that the first Swedish and Finnish American settlers, aboard the Kalmar Nyckel and the Fogel Grip, landed and settled the first American Swedish colony, New Sweden. Fort Christina was quickly built and named for the Queen of Sweden at the time. The wharf of rocks that was the site of the first landing remains, and some believe that archeological digs at the site could uncover a great deal about the history of that place. After, I walked just down the street to see Old Swedes Church, the oldest church in America that is still used for worship. <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/Customers/Sen_Carper/New_Castle_ Arsenal.JPG> We then traveled to New Castle to see the Old New Castle Courthouse, the Old New Castle Green and the Old Sheriff's House � three spaces that played a huge role in Delaware's and our nation's history. The Old New Castle Courthouse was built in 1732 and served as the meeting place for the state's colonial assembly for more than 40 years. It was there, on June 15, 1776, that the Delaware Assembly voted to separate from England and from Pennsylvania, creating the "Delaware State." Court is still held occasionally at the courthouse, making it the oldest continuously used chamber of justice in the United States. The cupola of the Courthouse also serves as the center of the "12-mile arc," which established the original border between Pennsylvania and Delaware. Next week, I'll travel to the Ryves Holt House in Lewes, our southernmost site in our park, to celebrate the Centennial. <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/Customers/Sen_Carper/Beaver_Vall ey.JPG> As the last state to get a national park, we know not to take these spaces for granted. Countless Delawareans have worked to preserve these historic sites for hundreds of years, and it will take more work in the years to come to ensure that the First State National Historical Park, and all of our national parks and monuments, are protected and preserved for our children and grandchildren to enjoy for years to come. <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/Customers/Sen_Carper/TomCarper.j pg> Stay Connected with Senator Carper Email Icon <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=17948.18227474.11813346.15290910&report_id=&redirect=http%3a%2f%2fc arper.senate.gov%2fpublic%2findex.cfm%2femail-senator-carper&redir_log=7 48783626634436> Flickr Icon <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=17948.18227474.11813346.15290910&report_id=&redirect=http%3a%2f%2fw ww.flickr.com%2fphotos%2f55205960%40N08%2f&redir_log=380993903065259> Twitter Icon <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=17948.18227474.11813346.15290910&report_id=&redirect=http%3a%2f%2ft witter.com%2fsenatorcarper&redir_log=603740291702232> Facebook Icon <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=17948.18227474.11813346.15290910&report_id=&redirect=http%3a%2f%2fw ww.facebook.com%2ftomcarper&redir_log=432865730981236> YouTube Icon <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=17948.18227474.11813346.15290910&report_id=&redirect=http%3a%2f%2fw ww.youtube.com%2fsenatorcarper&redir_log=91856966909260> RSS Icon <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=17948.18227474.11813346.15290910&report_id=&redirect=http%3a%2f%2fc arper.senate.gov%2fpublic%2findex.cfm%2frss%2ffeed&redir_log=07663914815 9349> Washington, D.C. 513 Hart Senate Office Building Washington, DC 20510 Phone: (202) 224-2441 Fax: (202) 228-2190 Wilmington 301 North Walnut Street, Suite 102L-1 Wilmington, DE 19801-3974 Phone: (302) 573-6291 Fax: (302) 573-6434 Dover 500 West Loockerman Street, Suite 470 Dover, DE 19904 Phone: (302) 674-3308 Fax: (302) 674-5464 Georgetown 12 The Circle Georgetown, DE 19947 Phone: (302) 856-7690 Fax: (302) 856-3001 Home <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=17948.18227474.11813346.15290910&report_id=&redirect=http%3a%2f%2fc arper.senate.gov%2fpublic%2f&redir_log=721925607444223> | Privacy Policy <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=17948.18227474.11813346.15290910&report_id=&redirect=http%3a%2f%2fc arper.senate.gov%2fpublic%2findex.cfm%2fprivacy-policy&redir_log=9111991 35533396> | Unsubscribe <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=17948.18227474.11813346.15290910&report_id=&redirect=http%3a%2f%2fc arper.senate.gov%2fpublic%2findex.cfm%2funsubscribe&redir_log=6609881566 17376>

Don’t sit this one out
Friend -- Folks might think real change only happens when a law is signed in Washington, or a major speech is delivered in Berlin, or a movement is born in New York City. But I have always believed that change begins from the ground up. When ordinary people get out in their towns and communities, roll up their sleeves, and get to work on the issues and the causes that inspire them. Right now -- for me and millions of your fellow Americans -- there is no mission more critical to continuing America’s story of change and progress than electing Hillary our next president. Today is Hillary for America's National Volunteer Day. So it’s the perfect chance to get involved in this campaign for the first time. Will you sign up to volunteer with Hillary’s team in your neighborhood? The campaign set a goal of 50,000 volunteers because we need every pair of hands and every ounce of commitment -- including yours: links.hillaryclinton.com/ctt This work is essential. I spent a whole lot of time as a young man on the South Side of Chicago doing this kind of community organizing. To this day, those years on the ground -- organizing folks who’d never been involved in the political process before -- remain fundamental to the way I approach my work. You know how much is at stake in this election. So if you want to see the real and necessary changes we need in America -- on health care, on good-paying jobs, on student debt, on climate change -- you need to become a part of the change right now: links.hillaryclinton.com/ctt I am counting on Hillary to succeed me as President. She is counting on each and every one of you to carry her all the way there. Don’t sit this one out. Thanks, Barack

Toss-up: New Hampshire Senate >>
Hi there, The path to flipping the Senate runs through New Hampshire. Right now New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan is running neck-and-neck with the incumbent Republican, Senator Kelly Ayotte. The latest poll has Maggie just one point ahead, 42-41. The Cook Political Report, Roll Call, and Real Clear Politics have ALL rated this race as a toss-up. It's going to be razor-close until the end, so Maggie needs us to throw our full support behind her now. Donate to Maggie to help her win this seat and flip the Senate. 100% of your donation will go directly to her campaign: www.emilyslist.org/donate/candidate/maggie-hassan1 Maggie was inspired to run for office because of her son Ben. Despite being diagnosed with cerebral palsy, Ben was able to attend school with other kids from his community because of the hard work of advocates and other families who had come before them. That inspired Maggie to become an advocate herself. Maggie has a long record of fighting for working families. As governor she froze tuition at state universities and worked across party lines to extend health care coverage. She's promised to fight for women's health care and education access for all in the Senate. Since joining the Senate, Kelly Ayotte has voted against the Paycheck Fairness Act and cosponsored a bill to defund Planned Parenthood. Worst of all: Ayotte continues to support Donald Trump, even after all he's said and done. All signs point to this race staying close, but if we rally together to help Maggie get her message out, I know she can win. Donate to help Maggie beat Ayotte and flip the Senate. 100% of your donation will go directly to her campaign: www.emilyslist.org/donate/candidate/maggie-hassan1 Thanks for helping Maggie, Lucinda Guinn Vice President of Campaigns, EMILY's List

Arkansans and all Americans are understandably worried about Zika, the danger that it poses to our health and our ability to combat this virus. Zika was first discovered in 1947, and until recently was not taken seriously as outbreaks were small and sporadic with little known adverse effects. What was once a disease confined along the equator has quickly become a global health threat that has been determined to cause birth defects including microcephaly, a neurological condition which results in a child being born with an abnormally small head. In February, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared Zika a public health emergency of international concern. In the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) activated its Emergency Operations Center to its highest level to respond to the outbreak. It's a growing cause for concern nationally. Last week, CDC reported 2,245 cases of Zika in all 50 states, including nine cases in Arkansas due to travel to countries and territories struggling to contain the virus. The health and safety of the American people is my top priority. That's why earlier this summer I met with CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden to ensure U.S. preparedness to fight Zika. Frieden sounded the alarm on the need to stop the spread of Zika and requested funding for the CDC in order to develop the strongest response to what has the potential to be a very serious health epidemic. It's vital that we understand more about the mosquito that carries the Zika virus so we can stop it in its tracks and develop faster and better diagnostic tests for those who may have been infected. It's crucial that we provide CDC and the National Institute of Health the resources they need to create prevention methods to keep us safe. We must take action to combat Zika. That's why I voted in favor of bipartisan legislation to provide emergency funding to finance Zika vaccine development and increase mosquito spraying and eradication. I've supported funding every step of the way, but Senate Democrats are standing in the way of efforts to fight this public health threat by blocking compromise legislation. Senate Democrats played politics with this bill, putting Americans at risk. Now it has been confirmed that Zika has spread by mosquito transmission in a neighborhood in Miami. CDC even issued a travel warning urging pregnant women to avoid this area. This is a serious health concern that deserves immediate attention. It's a battle we can win, but in order to do so, we need to dedicate resources to the fight. We will have another opportunity to show the American people we are committed to stopping Zika in September. I hope all of my Senate colleagues will vote in support of funding to combat this dangerous virus. _____ Quick Takes: * Traveling Around Arkansas: Last week I traveled around Arkansas talking with agriculture producers and agri-business leaders <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=14613.6482299.5925853.7402899&report_id=&redirect=https%3a%2f%2fwww youtube.com%2fwatch%3fv%3d1nSEasd7fpI%26feature%3dyoutu.be&redir_log=46 8854129411445> as part of my annual Ag Tour. The agriculture industry is an economic driver for our state. As Congress prepares the next farm bill, it's important for me to hear the ideas of our farmers, ranchers and producers about how we can improve this legislation. Having input from those in the industry is vital to crafting legislation that meets the needs of agriculture. During the tour I visited Craighead, Cleburne, Randolph, Independence, Mississippi, Cross, Crittenden, Drew, Lincoln and Desha counties. * Preventing Gitmo Closure: President Obama needs to abandon his efforts to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility. Last week, the Obama Administration released 15 detainees and, judging from the information about them in a newly released Department of Defense report <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=14613.6482299.5925853.7402899&report_id=&redirect=https%3a%2f%2fwww boozman.senate.gov%2fpublic%2findex.cfm%2fweekly-columns%3fid%3d697B4EB B-3D1D-46FF-9ED8-6909D2C0F6A1&redir_log=94839786952624> , they will likely follow the path of those who have returned to the battlefield. My colleagues and I will continue to use Congressional oversight authority to keep the President from fulfilling an ill-advised campaign pledge that jeopardizes the safety of all Americans. * Protecting Veterans Housing Programs: I helped introduce the Keeping Our Commitment to Ending Veteran Homelessness Act <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=14613.6482299.5925853.7402899&report_id=&redirect=https%3a%2f%2fwww boozman.senate.gov%2fpublic%2findex.cfm%2fpress-releases%3fid%3d1AC9FB4 2-D608-4216-8D27-48F02EA5E074&redir_log=574571090401618> to continue to ensure that seven Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and Department of Labor programs that help homeless veterans will continue to operate in the next fiscal year. This legislation continues the influential partnerships that our veterans rely on to get back on their feet. Preventing disruptions to these services must be a priority. * Celebrating 100 Years of the National Park Service: The National Park Service celebrates its centennial on Thursday <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=14613.6482299.5925853.7402899&report_id=&redirect=https%3a%2f%2fwww boozman.senate.gov%2fpublic%2findex.cfm%2fweekly-columns%3fid%3dDB9B173 C-2A98-40A1-85D1-9BD71D008595&redir_log=330687112849619> . Our national parks are one of our nation's greatest treasures. Thanks to the National Park Service, the beauty of our unique sites are being preserved for generations to come. * Highlighting Arkansas Veterans: The latest edition of the 'Salute to Veterans' series that highlights the service and sacrifice of Arkansas veterans who served our nation in uniform, recognized Vietnam veteran Bob Graham who served in the Marines. Listen to his memories of his service <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=14613.6482299.5925853.7402899&report_id=&redirect=https%3a%2f%2fwww youtube.com%2fwatch%3fv%3dZ15xwGhIdKw%26feature%3dyoutu.be&redir_log=94 5624487304445> . His interview will be submitted to the Veterans History Project, an initiative of the Library of Congress's American Folklife Center to collect and retain the oral histories of our nation's veterans. * Connecting on Social Media: Stay up to date with what I'm doing for Arkansans via social media. You can find me on Facebook <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=14613.6482299.5925853.7402899&report_id=&redirect=https%3a%2f%2fwww facebook.com%2fJohnBoozman&redir_log=247918694906255> , Twitter <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=14613.6482299.5925853.7402899&report_id=&redirect=https%3a%2f%2ftwi tter.com%2fJohnBoozman&redir_log=493792232315221> and Instagram <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=14613.6482299.5925853.7402899&report_id=&redirect=https%3a%2f%2fins tagram.com%2fjohnboozman%2f&redir_log=740563410159241> . <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=14613.6482299.5925853.7402899&report_id=&redirect=https%3a%2f%2fwww facebook.com%2fJohnBoozman&redir_log=247918694906255> <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=14613.6482299.5925853.7402899&report_id=&redirect=https%3a%2f%2ftwi tter.com%2fJohnBoozman&redir_log=493792232315221> <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=14613.6482299.5925853.7402899&report_id=&redirect=https%3a%2f%2fwww youtube.com%2fuser%2fBoozmanPressOffice&redir_log=245432480277335> <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=14613.6482299.5925853.7402899&report_id=&redirect=http%3a%2f%2fwww. boozman.senate.gov%2fpublic%2findex.cfm%2frss%2ffeed&redir_log=543235539 458384> <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=14613.6482299.5925853.7402899&report_id=&redirect=https%3a%2f%2fins tagram.com%2fjohnboozman%2f%3fmodal%3dtrue&redir_log=227263047326320> <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/iqClickTrk.aspx crop=14613.6482299.5925853.7402899&report_id=&redirect=http%3a%2f%2fwww. boozman.senate.gov%2fpublic%2findex.cfm%2funsubscribe&redir_log=14378558 8554412> Click here to open a plain text version of this email <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/view_newsletter_setup.aspx _text=Y&link=SenBoozman155485100138 - 08-23-2016 eNewsletter14613.6482299.5925853.7402899xxxFriendb xxx> Click here to forward this email to a friend <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/view_newsletter_setup.aspx rd=Y&link=SenBoozman155485100138 - 08-23-2016 eNewsletter14613.6482299.5925853.7402899xxxFriendb xxx> Click here to open this e-mail in its own window <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/view_newsletter_setup.aspx SenBoozman155485100138 - 08-23-2016 eNewsletter14613.6482299.5925853.7402899xxxFriendb xxx> <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/Customers/SenBoozman/iqtrk.gif rop=14613.6482299.5925853.7402899> <outreach.senate.gov/iqextranet/Customers/SenBoozman/iqtrk.gif rop=14613.6482299.5925853.7402899>
