How the GOP could push millions of kids back into poverty and blame Biden

It’s a Republican version of win-win. Destroy a social program that works while blaming Biden for the consequences.

“If the Democrats fail to act in a timely manner, the enhanced child tax credit, which was expanded in March by the American Rescue Plan Act, will expire at the end of the month. A series of temporary changes to the credit were implemented by that $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill; one of the more significant among many made it fully refundable for the first time.”

I fully expect the GOP to block the tax credit and then run ads blaming Biden for the rise in child poverty. This is both so easy and so obvious that it should a no-brainer for the GOP to decide to do this. It’s a Republican version of win-win. Destroy a social program that works while blaming Biden for the consequences.
