Democrats in Congress recently made an enormous change to public social programs while no one was paying attention and without bipartisan support.
Next month the Internal Revenue Service will start sending checks to qualifying families—$300 a month for every child under 6 and $250 for each older child.
These monthly payments will flow regardless of whether the recipient is working, looking for work, or in training or education programs.
Democrats in Washington claim these checks will reduce child poverty, as if the absence of money were the only problem for these families.
By sending checks directly, the Biden administration will sever the contact between parents and social workers, which helps uncover signs of addiction.
