“Dillon has been working from home since the start of the pandemic and her 10-year-old daughter learns remotely. She said utility bills and household expenses increased because of more time spent at home. She said she is able to pay those bills because of the CTC expansion.” https://t.co/PTiTfHYQEx

Let’s be clear about something: the debt ceiling allows the government to pay for previous expenses, not new ones.
We’re hitting the debt ceiling because Republicans gave $ 2 trillion in tax cuts mostly to their rich friends. They need to be part of raising it, too.

Last year, we saw the biggest shock to our economy in decades—and poverty still went down.
Why? Because the federal government helped people get through it. We should keep showing the people that we have their back by passing the Build Back Better bill.https://t.co/yR412Rm4Tc

Child Tax Credit recipients, how many of you have been able to return to work or increase your work hours because of your CTC payments?
