KCAL: Nancy Pelosi Makes Stop In LA To Tout Child Tax Credit
Los Angeles, July 15, 2021
U.S. Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made a visit to Los Angeles Thursday, the same day that checks began to go out to millions of families nationwide as part of the federal child tax credit.
Pelosi joined Rep. Jimmy Gomez at the Barrio Action Youth & Family Center in El Sereno, where she addressed the scope and the reach of the CTC.
“Let’s just think about this for a minute, 27 million families in America will directly benefit, especially communities of color,” Pelosi said. “We’ll cut child poverty in half.”
