DNC Statement on Hillary Clinton’s Plan to Double Child Tax Credit
October 12, 2016
WASHINGTON – DNC Interim Chair Donna Brazile issued the following statement:
“Hillary Clinton’s plan to double the Child Tax Credit and expand it further for middle-class families is exactly the kind of leadership we need in the White House. Unlike Donald Trump, whose economic plan features big tax cuts for himself and those at the top, Hillary is offering real ideas to make life a little easier on hardworking families who are struggling to get by. She’s fighting to restore the purchasing power of people who need it most: low-income parents with young children to feed, not millionaires and billionaires.
“That’s what her campaign has been about since day one, and it’s what the Democratic Party stands for in our platform. We want to create an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top. We’re fighting to restore economic security to the middle class, raise wages, and lift the tax burden off families by asking the wealthy to pay their fair share. Donald Trump is in it for himself, and his Trumped-up trickle-down economic policies prove it.”
