House GOP's Child Tax Credit Expansion Excludes Millions of Children in Lower-Income Working Families

Chuck Marr

Republicans' tax credit increase excludes millions of children whose parents work in low-wage jobs — even as it expands eligibility for higher-income families.

So, okay, nice piece but it still fails to address the real problem in real terms…there is a war against poor people in this country…all of these policy wonks write papers saying this and that about how life and it’s burdens are put on the backs of poor people but no one is declaring a war on poverty, why is that? Greed, if they didn’t have something to write about or do their research on they wouldn’t have a job. It’s all about job security NOT about helping the poor and after 30+ years of trickle-down we have millions of poor people. Chuck Marr, get a real job and wage war on poverty, Thank-You very much.

I appreciated reading this piece. I had not know about the horrific ‘distribution’ of the child tax credit. One more talking point to slam my congress critters with as they attempt to ram this UGLY tax package down our throats.

It amazes me that those Republican faces get so giddy with glee as they hope to rob us blind again. Maybe we should rename DC to Sociopath Central.

Look’s like Ryan is Satan’s representative, not the people’s.

Next time you hear media bigmouths complain about “socialist” Democratic policies, remember this article: Republicans do not oppose Socialism, just as long as poor people don’t benefit from it.

And couple this information with the fact that the reform proposal would eliminate the personal exemption. Meaning, when the total exemptions are averaged by the household size, the relief for child dependency is not only not increased, it is reduced.
