Tax credits can help keep King’s dream alive


Personal loans allow hard-working people the opportunity to keep more of what they earn. If that can reduce poverty, so much the better.

It seems like a no-brainer, something that Republicans, Democrats, Marijuana Now Party folks, and others should support.

If part of the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, that’s good too.

I call on Congresswoman Michelle Fischbach and Congressmen Pete Stauber and Tom Emmer to let Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy know that passing the permanent extension of the Child Tax Credit is a victory for the party and the country – and we must do it.
