Representative Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut is the chairwoman of the House Appropriations Committee. She said that the expanded federal child tax credit and passage of President Biden’s stalled, multi-trillion-dollar Build Back Better Act would help fight inflation. 

She called for expanding the child tax credit to qualify families without income for up to $3,600 per child. She said legislators have “lifted over 50% of children out of poverty, all while fighting inflation, which people are concerned about today. 

“People who are knowledgeable in this field believe that a number of the programs which are attached to the Build Back Better initiative, and including the child tax credit, can help to bring down inflation,” Representative DeLauro said. “And you think about people’s ability to be able to, you know, to make their way to pay for the cost; but if you’re not, if there isn’t going to be any more money into the economy, and the prices just continued to rise, then that exacerbates a problem.”
