We are on the cusp of a major victory. We've just learned that we could see a tax deal in Congress in the next 24 hours that will greatly help low-income, working families. Or it could all fall apart.
PLEASE call (800/826-3688) or email your U.S. representative and your U.S. senators. Tell Congress to make the 2009 earned income tax credit (EITC) and child tax credit (CTC) improvements permanent today. Congress should not walk away from this deal.
This is a good tax deal that would prevent 16 million Americans from falling into or deeper into poverty. Another short-term extension is unacceptable while Congress grants more tax breaks to corporations.
We cannot afford to lose this victory.
Rev. David Beckmann is the president of Bread for the World.
