Democratic candidate Julián Castro, the former secretary for housing and urban development in the Obama administration, has also proposed expanding the EITC. Castro would go even further and also make the child tax credit fully refundable, another benefit to lower-income families that Buttigieg did not include in his plan. Sens. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) and Cory Booker (D- N.J.) have also pitched tax credits that would primarily benefit the bottom 60 percent, according to an analysis by the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy.
