CWALAC Stands Up for Hard-Working Families Suffering Under “Bidenomics”

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Recently, Concerned Women for America LAC (CWALAC) sent a letter to the United States House of Representatives leadership, alongside a broad coalition of groups, asking them to continue to work to strengthen the Child Tax Credit (CTC). The CTC, which helps families with qualifying children get a tax break, is especially needed at this time when so many families struggle to make ends meet. We write in part:

As leaders of faith organizations, social welfare organizations, and others, we consider it to be an integral part of our missions to ensure hard-working families and communities have the resources they need to be fully flourishing and contributing members of society.

We stand in agreement that the married family is the necessary building block for healthy children, communities, and a free people. However, marriage rates are at an all-time low and fertility rates continue to decline. For too long, we have presumed the family would always be there to strengthen society, and we have focused too little effort on supporting its health. If we do not take concrete steps to strengthen the family, we will have no chance of addressing the social problems most on Americans’ minds—educational failure, poverty, and crime.

That is why we stand in broad agreement that the Child Tax Credit (CTC) should be strengthened. Now, more than ever, hard-working families need relief from record-setting inflation. The most responsible and effective way to extend this relief is not through a handout, but by rewarding hard work. By ensuring that parents have more control over the money they earn, we will not only ease their burden of dealing with rising costs, but also strengthen the overall family unit in which our next generation of leaders is being raised.
