What the House Needs to Know Before Voting on the Child Tax Credit

An expanded child tax credit is an attack on America’s families, economic strength and fiscal health. That’s my conclusion after analyzing the effects of the new proposal in the House, which could face a vote as early as Wednesday. It would stifle work, increase the cost of other welfare programs, and even encourage tax fraud. It would also put the country deeper in debt.

Supporters either describe this policy as an antipoverty tool or silently back it in exchange for other priorities. But the credit would make families more dependent on government while discouraging parents from finding the work that leads to self-sufficiency and lasting success.

At FGA, we don’t just talk about changing policy—we make it happen.
