Democrats are moving to indefinitely provide monthly payments for children in the U.S
If Democrats get their way with legislation child poverty in America could soon see itself vanish by more than 50%. According to legislation proposed this weekend, child payments would begin around July to the tune of $250 a month for children up to the age of 17 and $300 for those under the age of 6 according to CNN.
Sponsored by Dem Rep Richardl Neal “The pandemic is driving families deeper and deeper into poverty, and it’s devastating,” Neal said in a statement. “this money is going to be the difference in a roof over someone’s head or food on their table.”
It is unclear if it will actually pass.
