That is why my Administration has prioritized high-quality job creation, affordable health insurance for America’s families, and a world-class education for every child. Earlier this year, I signed the American Taxpayer Relief Act, which permanently extended middle class tax cuts while expanding the Child Tax Credit and marriage penalty relief.

                Proclamation 9061 of November 22, 2013

                
National Family Week, 2013

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Whether united by blood or bonds of kinship--whether 
                led by a mother and father, same-sex couple, single 
                parent, or guardian--families are the building blocks 
                of American society. During National Family Week, we 
                celebrate the spirit that moves family members to care 
                for one another, to grow and dream together, and to 
                instill in their children the character that keeps our 
                Nation strong.

                As we honor America's families, we must also lift them 
                up. We must restore the basic bargain that built our 
                country--the idea that if you work hard and meet your 
                responsibilities, you can get ahead. That is why my 
                Administration has prioritized high-quality job 
                creation, affordable health insurance for America's 
                families, and a world-class education for every child. 
                Earlier this year, I signed the American Taxpayer 
                Relief Act, which permanently extended middle class tax 
                cuts while expanding the Child Tax Credit and marriage 
                penalty relief. I am calling on the Congress to 
                increase the minimum wage, a step that would raise 
                incomes for millions of working families. And because 
                we must serve our military families as well as they 
                serve us, First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill 
                Biden's Joining Forces initiative is connecting service 
                members, veterans, and military spouses with companies 
                looking to hire.

                This week, let us renew our family bonds. Whether by 
                sharing a family meal, reading a bedtime story, or 
                creating a holiday tradition, let us carve out a place 
                in the lives of our loved ones. And as we do so, let us 
                resolve that every family should have the opportunity 
                to raise America's next generation of innovators, 
                scholars, and leaders.

                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 24 through 
                November 30, 2013, as National Family Week. I invite 
                all States, communities, and individuals to join in 
                observing this week with appropriate ceremonies and 
                activities to honor our Nation's families.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                twenty-second day of November, in the year of our Lord 
                two thousand thirteen, and of the Independence of the 
                United States of America the two hundred and thirty-
                eighth.
