They would payment from the expansion of the kid tax credits. They volition payment from having access to pre-K. There are conscionable truthful galore things that, you know, the radical of West Virginia desperately need. And we cognize that helium is not working connected behalf of their interests, and I truly americium conscionable completely disappointed and disgusted by his reasoning.
