Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is another action alert from Progressive Secretary.

This letter supports campaigns by Social Security Works, Demand Progress, Americans for Tax Fairness Action Fund, and others. It asks Congress to make the Child Tax Credit permanent — (it will expire at the end of this year if no action is taken) — and include it in the budget reconciliation package being negotiated now.

Reportedly, as many as 65.6 million American children — 90% of all U.S. children  — would benefit from an expanded child tax credit, such as the one proposed in President Joe Biden’s American Families Plan.

We will send this email message to your Representative and Senators:

The expanded child tax credit is helping over 60 million children in this country, lifting millions of them out of poverty. Make it permanent!

This simple change in the tax code is cutting child poverty nearly in half without adding bureaucracy. We are the last of the developed countries to institute a child allowance.

The budget reconciliation package can do enormous good, and the child tax credit should be a top priority. Please insist on it.

Kathie Turner, Executive Director
