Support Working Families

To: Senator Manchin, Senator Capito

It’s as American as apple pie – if you work hard and play by the rules, you should be able to make ends meet. That’s not always the case. Even people who work two or three low-wage jobs can find themselves stretching their dollars to put food on the table or gas in the car.

Sometimes working families need extra financial help so they can get by. That’s what the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Child Tax Credit (CTC) do. These policies are two of our nation’s strongest tools to promote work and help families build a secure future.

We know that kids do better when their families do better. Research shows children in families who benefit from the EITC or CTC are healthier, do better in school, are more likely to go to college and earn more as adults.

But unless Congress acts in the coming months, millions of hardworking Americans could lose an important piece of their family budgets when critical provisions of the EITC and CTC expire.

Don't let this happen, Senator!

Fight for working families back in Washington by making these critical provisions in the EITC and CTC permanent this year – so that hardworking families in West Virginia have a better chance to achieve the American dream.
