North Carolina GOP Senate Candidates Reconfirm Opposition to Families Tax Cut

In case you missed it, a Friday report from the Charlotte Observer highlights that the candidates in North Carolina’s divisive GOP Senate Primary came together to reaffirm their opposition to the expanded child tax credit, a middle-class tax cut for working parents, which last week began hitting bank accounts as a part of congressional Democrats and President Biden’s American Rescue Plan.

According to the Charlotte Observer, “The top Republicans in the race” criticized the existing expansion and “did not endorse making the expanded credit permanent.” That’s no surprise as Ted BuddMark Walker, and Pat McCrory, had each previously criticized the package that included the tax cut.

In the months ahead, North Carolina voters will continue to hear about Budd, Walker, and McCrory’s opposition to the expanded child tax credit, which Carolina families are calling a “blessing” that “takes away a layer of stress,” because it’s putting money in the pockets of 1.1 million families and lifting up 1.8 million children in the Tar Heel state
