Working poor get screwed again

Let’s see: they work, are not on welfare, and are contributing to the tax coffers…

But they don’t vote in the numbers required to make them a threat. They aren’t noticed, and are largely forgotten.

So what happens?

David Firestone in the NYTimes: Tax Law Omits Child Credit in Low-Income Brackets: ” after studying the bill approved on Friday, liberal and child advocacy groups discovered that a different group of families would also not benefit from the $400 increase ? families who make just above the minimum wage….Because of the formula for calculating the credit, most families with incomes from $10,500 to $26,625 will not benefit. The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, a liberal group, says those families include 11.9 million children, or one of every six children under 17.”

If the Democrats could energize this voting base along with the squeezed middle class… well they just won’t will they? via dangerousmeta.
