Title 3- Proclamation 8603 of November 18, 2010
The President National Family Week, 2010
By the President of the United States of America
Like generations before them, today's American families rely on their love
and care for each other to face challenges. During National Family Week,
we celebrate the resilient spirit of America's families and their role in
building vibrant communities and a strong Nation.
My Administration remains committed to finding solutions to the issues
affecting American families. In my first year in office, I established the
White House Task Force on the Middle Class, chaired by Vice President
Joe Biden, which aims to protect working families' economic security and
raise their standard of living. And the continued success of the American
Recovery and Reinvestment Act has created more jobs, as well as housing,
educational, and child care support for families throughout the country.
This year, I was proud to sign the Affordable Care Act, which strengthens
health security for families through important health insurance reforms.
This landmark law allows young adults to stay on their parents' health
insurance plan until they turn 26 or have coverage through their job, requires
new plans to cover recommended preventive care with no out-of-pocket
costs, prohibits insurance companies from denying coverage because of a
pre-existing condition, and eliminates lifetime and annual caps on dollar
amounts insurance companies will spend on care. I also signed the Health
Care and Education Reconciliation Act, which provides increased funding
for Pell grants to help families cover the rising costs of higher education.
The strength of our families will determine our success as a Nation. Families
of all kinds can provide a supportive and stable foundation to unlock the
promise in each of us. These units are the building blocks of our neighbor-
hoods and communities, shaping the development of our society, instilling
values in us, and impacting our lives with their care and compassion.
During this holiday season, we especially acknowledge the sacrifices of
our brave service members and their families who keep our loved ones
safe here at home and abroad.
This National Family Week, we recognize the importance of the family
unit in helping all Americans reach their dreams. As we confront our chal-
lenges as a Nation, let us support our families in creating safe, nurturing
environments for our loved ones and communities. Together, we will build
a foundation for the future success of all of America's sons and daughters.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States
of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution
and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim November 21 through
November 27, 2010, as National Family Week. I invite all States, local
communities, and individuals to join in observing this week with appropriate
ceremonies and activities to honor our Nation's families.
