Ryan on Child Poverty

  • voted for and co-sponsored H.R.1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which provided for tax cuts that disporportionately favor wealthy individuals and corporations. The bill is projected to add $1.5 trillion to the national debt over ten years, which could lead to future cuts to important social safety net programs. The bill also repeals the individual health insurance mandate established under the Affordable Care Act, jeopardizing health insurance coverage for millions of people.
