Republican Tax Bill Harmful to Women

The Democratic women U.S. House of Representatives members will release a Democratic Policy Committee Report on June 19th which outlines how the Republican tax bill harms women. The report will give details on a number of issues. For example, the GOP tax bill cuts the child tax credit for six million families with child care expenses, thus penalizing working women. The GOP tax bill completely denies the child tax credit to four million children in working families receiving EITC. Two million working families will be penalized by requiring them to pay an alternative minimum tax, simply for claiming the child and/or HOPE credits.
