Now that Elon Musk has taken over Twitter, I use it when Facebook blocks me so I can create my own comments, follow Joe Kent and see what other local elected leaders and candidates are saying.
Knowing that Joe Kent supports an increase in the child tax credit, and that this is one use of our tax dollars that benefits, instead of harming families, I was appalled, but not surprised, to see Heidi St. John attack Joe Kent, and call him a “Bernie bro” for supporting it.
The child tax credit is one of the few government programs that does what it is supposed to: It helps struggling families and lifts children out of poverty.
Some of my family members lost their jobs last year. They are young people just starting out to build their families, and the child tax credit helped them make ends meet.
It’s an effective program, which is why it was doubled in then-president Donald Trump’s tax plan.
Does Heidi think Donald Trump was a Bernie bro too?
Her hypocrisy is incredible.
She has admitted to being on welfare, and her nonprofit has received over a million dollars in government grants. If she wants to take a principled stand against government spending, she can start with her own bank account.
I will continue to support Joe Kent, who is also determined to see that parents can choose where to spend their tax dollars on education, instead of being locked in to one-size-fits-all public schools and gambling their children’s future on under-performing, often hostile, government schools that are under the thumb of teachers unions.
Joe Kent understands that families are the building block of our society.
His proposal would help poor families nationwide. I don’t know what policies Heidi supports, but apparently “helping families in need” isn’t on the list.
We can spend our tax dollars on special interest government programs and “grants” that help the few, or we can get behind Joe Kent, who is endorsed by Trump and strengthen our families.
Political dust in the air serves no one.
Joe Kent will serve us ably in Congress.
