House Republicans Want to Fist-Pump the Poor (Again)

Well, those zany House Republicans are at it again: according to the NY Times, a bill just passed through the House which would deny cash refunds under the child tax credit to families who use individual tax IDs (instead of SSNs).

This bill pretty much targets poor, working-class Hispanic families and is basically a way to score a few points with knee-jerk immigration reactionaries. I know–it’s quite shocking that Republicans would stoop so low as to screw poor families; try to contain your surprise.
