Patty’s Price Hikes, Part III: 3 Decades In The Senate, 3 Votes Against A Larger Child Tax Credit

If Murray Had Her Way, Washingtonian Families Would Potentially Have $1,500 Less In Their Pocketbooks Per Child Per Year


Pasco, WA – Patty Murray is trying her darndest to convince Washingtonians that she’s fighting to bring down costs for families with children. Bottom Line: In her THREE decades in the Senate, Patty voted THREE times against expanding a child tax credit that has helped middle class families raise their kids.


Take a look at what Patty Murray says she’ll fight for in her first television ad of the year:



While her rhetoric sounds empathetic, the reality of her voting record strikes a different tone:

  • 2001: Patty voted against the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act, which doubled the child tax credit from $500 to $1,000 over ten years.

  • 2003: Patty voted against the Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act, which accelerated the child tax credit doubling from $500 to $1,000 starting in 2004.

  • 2017: Patty voted against the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which doubled the child tax credit from $1,000 to $2,000 per child.

Patty even called the 2003 tax cuts “misguided.” What’s truly misguided is that if Patty had her way, Washingtonian families would potentially have $1,500 less in their pocketbooks per child per year.


No matter her rhetoric, voters know the reality and Patty will be held to account for her Price Hikes by Washingtonians this November.
