The Tax Cut

All of this hooplah about some low-income families getting left out of the new child-tax credit baffles me. The Dems were against cutting taxes in the first place, so presumably they didn’t want these people to get the credit. So, in effect, the Dems are getting their way for the people who get noting, and yet they think it’s outrageous the tax cut isn’t big enough to include them. Of course, you can’t cut income taxes for people who don’t pay income taxes. Still, if only the Dems hadn’t fought a larger tax cut in the first place, these lower-income folks might have gotten more help.
