Reader’s View: US Senate can lift kids from hunger, homelessness – Duluth News Tribune

0 minutes, 49 seconds Read

Sadly, the U.S. Senate still hasn’t passed the Tax Relief for American Families and Workers Act, even though it could cut child poverty and help 16 million children in families living in poverty, including 194,000 children in Minnesota.

In the last month, there has been no progress, even though this bipartisan bill overwhelmingly passed the U.S. House. There is still hope in the Senate, though, which is back in session. Our calls to senators (202-224-3121) can still make a difference.

In this presidential election year, some worry about who gets the credit. We are talking about children facing hunger and homelessness, and it is time to end this tragedy in our country. We say children are the future. It’s time to urge the Senate to take action to make the future brighter.
