U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet’s child tax credit kicks in this week reversing key elements of President Clinton’s landmark welfare reform by returning millions of Americans back to the dead-end streets of living off the government dole.
The more kids you have, the more money you get and you don’t even have to try and find a job — that’s how Bennet’s new child tax credit works.
PeakNation™ will remember this government handout from its more inflammatory descriptions of propping up “welfare moms” and “welfare queens.”
The so-called child tax credit reboots the culture of poverty and dependency on the government that existed for decades.
In the 1990s, the Republican-controlled Congress and Democrat administration worked together to dismantle the programs and end the cultures of dependancy in order to lift single moms out of welfare and into work.
Bennet’s Back-to-Welfare plan redistributes $100 billion from working Americans to those who don’t work, and signals a major policy shift from the American dream of getting ahead through hard work, to flat-out socialism.
Bennet completely missed the irony in his back-to-back tweets Tuesday celebrating the new nanny government he’s creating in the U.S., while criticizing violent protest crackdowns in Communist Cuba.
The enhanced #ChildTaxCredit payments that will begin to reach families this Thursday will cut child poverty nearly in half.
This policy will make a huge difference in the lives of millions of American families.
That’s why I’ll keep working to make it permanent. pic.twitter.com/4r3x1Wkdrr

For far too long, Cuba’s authoritarian regime has denied its people the liberty to determine their own future.
The Cuban people have the right to hold peaceful protests for freedom, and I strongly condemn any repressive or violent acts to silence their voices.

Bennet’s campaign for reelection next year is relying heavily on this Orwellian message that his government welfare checks are the magic eraser to end child poverty and get them better grades in school.
Didn’t see that one coming, did you?
From the Washington Post:
Sen. Michael F. Bennet (D-Colo.), who has been pushing Congress to expand the child tax credit since 2015, served as the superintendent of Denver Public Schools immediately before he took office in 2009. During his four-year tenure leading the district, he worked hard to boost achievement among low-income students, believing there was no excuse for children in poverty not to succeed. But even as he saw some successes among high-poverty schools, his views started to change.
“One of the things that I came away from the experience in the school district believing was that the schools wouldn’t be able to solve all these issues on their own,” Bennet said in an interview in April. “We had to find ways of creating greater economic mobility for families and for kids.”
He cited a 2011 study by the National Bureau of Economic Research that found that increasing tax credits could boost test scores.
When we flunked a test in school, never in a million years did it ever occur to us to blame our parents for not making enough money.
