Mothers and grandmothers speak out on what losing the Child Tax Credit has meant for their families

“We’ll just be back in the poorhouse again, back where we started from. We will not get to go out on family outings. No snacks, no going out. No more Taco Tuesdays, no more movie night, no pizza night. I won’t get breaks. Less socks and shoes for the kids.
