DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Continuing her policy focus on children and families, Hillary Clinton is pledging more tax relief for families with young kids.
The Democratic presidential nominee announced a plan on Tuesday to double the Child Tax Credit and to increase the amount that low-income families could get back in refunds.
Clinton said she is trying to help families struggling with the cost of child care, health care and college. She said the “new tax credit will make their lives a little bit easier and help restore fairness to our economy.”
Clinton has made women and families a central priority of her campaign. She has pledged not to raise taxes on the middle class and has proposed plans to cap child care costs and offer tax credits for excessive health care costs or for family caregivers.
