As the expanded Child Tax Credit’s monthly payments start hitting Americans’ bank accounts today, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Democratic National Committee are launching a joint digital advertising campaign in Wisconsin (including WI-03) highlighting this tax cut Democrats delivered to middle-class families by passing the American Rescue Plan — and that every Republican voted against it. The ad will begin running on July 15th as part of a five-figure digital buy through a native advertising platform.
“Thanks to President Biden and Democrats, 39 million households will start receiving monthly tax cuts on Thursday, helping middle-class families pay rent, put food on the table, and save for the future,” said Democratic National Committee Chair Jaime Harrison. “These transformative payments will help cut the child poverty rate in half, yet not a single Republican in Congress voted for them. We are making sure Americans know this contrast is clear: While Republicans continue to play games and block efforts to improve the lives of working people, Democrats are delivering for you.”
“Every single House Republican abandoned their neighbors when it mattered most by voting ‘NO’ on the American Rescue Plan,” said DCCC Chairman Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney. “Democrats delivered on the Child Tax Credit, putting money in the pockets of 90% of American families to help parents make ends meet as our economy recovers.”
“Democrats are delivering a major tax cut for middle-class families that will help more Americans get back on their feet after the pandemic,” said Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chair Sen. Gary Peters. “The contrast for voters is clear: While Democrats are putting more money in the pockets of families with children, Republicans unanimously voted against this tax cut — and in 2022, voters will hold every GOP Senate candidate accountable.”
