Pelosi: 'Now that Senate Has Passed Child Tax Credit, Republicans Must Immediately Bring It to House Floor'

June 5, 2003



Washington, D.C. -- House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi made the following statement today upon passage this evening of the child tax credit in the U.S. Senate:

“Now that the Senate has extended the child tax credit to working families, the Republican Leadership in the House must immediately bring it to the floor. This bill is the least we should do to help America's working and military families.

“We Democrats are going to work very hard to make it happen. There is no issue that defines more clearly the differences between the Democrats and the Republicans than respecting working families and expanding a tax credit for their children.

“How do we say to the children of those families: ‘Your parents work, but they don't make enough money to get this tax credit?’ That is not right. Democrats are going to do what it takes to expand the child tax credit.”
