Sumner: Congress should pass the Build Back Better Act

Posted

Joe Biden and the Democrats’ Build Back Better Act is a bold investment in the future of America that benefits everyone, young and old.

For young people? The Build Back Better Act will extend the expanded Child Tax Credit, continuing to cut childhood poverty in half! Additionally, the bill includes affordable child care for kids under 5 and guarantees universal preschool for 3 and 4 year olds. The bill also includes two years of free community college.

For Seniors? The Build Back Better Act expands Medicare benefits to cover dental, vision and hearing. The bill also includes funding to address staffing shortages in long-term care facilities.

For everyone? According to the Joint Committee on Taxation, Americans making less than $200,000 will pay less in taxes under the bill.

It’s time for a bold investment in the future of America. The Build Back Better Act is it.
