Life-Changing Biden Child Tax Credit Dominates American Headlines

July 16, 2021

From the Speaker’s Press Office

Yesterday, the first monthly payments of the Biden Child Tax Credit were sent out and front pages across the country are highlighting the tax credit’s immediate impact for American families.  The Biden Child Tax Credit, secured by House Democrats in the American Rescue Plan, will help continue the historic economic recovery and achieve a transformative reduction in child poverty.

Here is a friendly reminder that this life-changing measure, alongside help for restaurants, funding for state and local first responders, record job and wage growth and all other benefits of the American Rescue Plan were opposed by every single Republican in the House of Representatives.

And here are some of the many front pages and articles from across the country that have highlighted the Biden Child Tax Credit:
