With the next round of coronavirus stimulus payments sorted out, (at least for the most part), the Democrats appear to have a new way cooked up to redistribute our tax dollars, and it’s being largely ignored by the mainstream media.
The latest round of coronavirus relief, which weighs in at nearly $2 trillion, was heavily criticized by both Republicans and moderate Democrats, as being an extremely large and unwieldy bill.

“The child benefit has the makings of a policy revolution,” The New York Times reports. “It is essentially a guaranteed income for families with children,” aiding “more than 93 percent of children” in the U.S. A recent study found it will reduce child poverty by 45 percent, and more among Black families. Democrats intend to make the one-year benefit permanent.
