US bishops: ‘Strengthen and improve’ child, earned income tax credits
CWN - September 22, 2010
Bishop William Murphy, chairman of the Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, is urging Congress to “strengthen and improve” the child tax credit and earned income tax credit.
“We believe these essential programs assist workers and families raising children to provide the necessities of life,” Bishop Murphy writes. “Unless Congress acts, these vulnerable workers and their children will be left worse off than they are now.”
