This week while our minds turned to voting rights and our eyes turned to Texas, or more accurately, Democratic Texas legislators in Washington, D.C., a lot of big stuff was also going on. Ali Feldman explored the Biden Administration’s expanded Child Tax Credit, explaining just why it is so historic and so consequential. Speaking of meaningful, Bill Radunovich wouldn’t let the Hobby Lobby Fourth of July ad drop, thank goodness, and shared his scathing rebuke to the false claim that the Founding Fathers wanted the United States to be a Christian nation.
Unfortunately, we know that the US still does not prioritize the values of caring for all; otherwise Toby Gialluca wouldn’t feel the need to write so heartbreakingly about the plight of immigrants on the border and Eric Kramer wouldn’t need to be launching a referendum on absolutely ridiculous and abysmal anti-voting laws in Arizona.
To round out the week, Edward Smith shared his opinion about why businesses should continue to let workers stay at home (and this was before Delta) and ShuriResists shared her interpretation of the past few days through imagery.
