The federal budget campaign champions the priorities of women, moms, and families in the federal budget. This campaign includes work on taxes/revenues, SNAP, WIC, Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, Medicaid, CHIP, healthy school lunches, and more.
The Senate needs to pass the Build Back Better Act with permanent and equitable paid family and medical leave now.
Just as families need support the most, monthly Child Tax Credit payments ended in December because Joe Manchin and the Republican Senators refused to pass Build Back Better. With Omicron raging, it's more important than ever to pass BBB to make child care and elder care affordable, guarantee paid family and medical leave, lower the cost of insulin and other prescription drugs, make healthcare more affordable, and more.
Congress must act now to save the Child Tax Credit by the end of 2021 and build a strong care economy. They need to hear us urging them to do what's necessary to build an economy where everyone can thrive. Take a few seconds to sign on to our letter.
Sign our petition NOW calling on Congress to make the improvements to the Child Tax Credit permanent!
