House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) claims that the expanded federal child tax credit and passage of President Biden's stalled, multitrillion-dollar Build Back Better Act would help fight inflation.

Inflation has hit its highest level since 1982, according to the latest data.

Biden's $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan included automatic, advance CTC payments, which are now expired. The legislation also expanded the CTC to qualify families without income for up to $3,600 per child. 

We have "lifted over 50% of children out of poverty, all while fighting inflation, which people are concerned about today," DeLauro told Just the News on a conference call during which she called for permanently expanding the CTC and retaining the automatic monthly payments.
