Shaefer on study showing US spends less on poorest children, more on the elderly, than it did 20 years ago

a PSC In The News reference

"The U.S. spends less on children than almost any other developed nation" - Washington Post. 05/16/2018.

A new study using federal administrative records finds that childhood safety net spending has decreased over the past several decades for children from families that cannot take advantage of the Earned Income Tax Credit. Luke Shaefer says of the analysis: "This is perhaps the best evidence to date that there's a group at the bottom being left out because of the way refundable tax credits are tied to work."
