Even if you don’t normally file taxes or were laid off during the pandemic, make sure to file your taxes for free before May 17th to secure your new monthly #ChildTaxCredit payments from the American Rescue Plan! https://t.co/eUOd1eX5wo pic.twitter.com/76TElY5n4V

Conclusion from 12-year study of ~100 million recipients of monthly cash transfers: “Those receiving [the income] had a 61% lower risk of being a suicide victim than non-beneficiaries. The results were more pronounced among women and young individuals.”

“47% of respondents said the $ 1,400 stimulus check amount should have been more, 15% said less, and 38% said just right.”
One more check was never going to be enough. We have bills each and every month. Stimulus checks should be monthly until our economy has fully recovered. https://t.co/jQll2DzeXc

This time last year, most Americans were receiving their first stimulus check in the pandemic.
Now we’re building momentum for monthly stimulus & parents will begin receiving monthly checks on July 1.
Let’s keep moving forward.

“I worried that my son and I would go hungry. The child tax credit is a financial lifeline.”
The expanded child tax credit means parents will start receiving MONTHLY checks on July 1.
Let’s make that permanent to slash child poverty for good.https://t.co/80rGNkwGYe

Just signed this petition to Congress to make the monthly checks from the child tax credit permanent. Will you join me in signing and sharing this petition?
Cutting child poverty in half will save us over $ 500 billion a year.
It’s a good and moral deal.https://t.co/3MiIHWCBZY

Monthly checks are not a far-fetched idea anymore.
They provide much-needed security for Americans in unsustainable economic circumstances.
Most of us have experienced the proof of concept in the past year, and its popularity is only growing.https://t.co/z7LzrwpSIH
