Let’s Spur the Economy and Raise the Wages of Working Families

Please join me in cosponsoring H.R. 3757, the Grow American Incomes Now (GAIN) Act, a bicameral transformational expansion of the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) to compensate for the loss of wages of the bottom twenty percent of wage earners since 1979.
