The $ 3.5T reconciliation bill will deliver for the American people from child care to new climate-focused jobs.
It’s this type of big, bold thinking that can restore people’s faith that their government can function. We must pass it.

This is what policy is about. As a result of one bill passed by one vote at 5 in the morning, tens of millions of working families are receiving direct payments of $ 300 per child, and it is radically transforming lives all across the country. pic.twitter.com/4KMEaQsOz8

It’s totally absurd to me that working parents are paying 1/3 of their income in child care costs.
We will address the crisis in child care by fighting to make sure that no working family pays more than 7% of their income on this basic need.

Every month when the checks go out – the 15th – legislators and the White House should hold events with families celebrating the Child Tax Credit. It ought to be the most popular thing in the world – but most people don’t know enough about it or who is behind it.

In a modern economy, education beyond K-12 is a public good. We pay for pre-school, vocational education, trade school or college to invest in young people. If your child chooses to go to a private school or do something else, you still have an obligation to the public good. https://t.co/jIDF602maT
