Statement for the Record: Assessing 25 Years of the Child Tax Credit (1997-2022)
Bruce Lesley submitted this testimony for the record to the Senate Finance Committee’s Subcommittee on Taxation and IRS Oversight to be included in the Hearing on “Assessing 25 Years of the Child Tax Credit (1997-2022)”
Excerpt from the letter:
Congress should be doing many things to address the myriad of problems facing our nation’s children. With respect to the Child Tax Credit, it is well past time to put aside ideological differences, notions of “deservedness” related to adults that impose harm to millions of children, and the decades of failure to fully address the needs and concerns of children and families in this country.
