The single most valuable initiative currently under consideration in Congress concerns historic and sustainable relief for American children living in poverty. Why is almost no one talking about it? Here’s how you can get up to speed quickly…
- Does bipartisanship matter more than helping kids? – “It could cut child poverty in half — a good reason for this policy to continue after the pandemic is over.”
- We Are a Nation of Child Abusers – “The United States has long had one of the highest rates of child poverty in the advanced world — and then the coronavirus pandemic aggravated the suffering. Now we could have a thrilling breakthrough:”

- Even Conservative Scholars and Leaders call for expanded EITC and CTC for families – this proposal “reduces poverty while fostering some of our nation’s most critical investments: those that parents make for their children.”
