The Tories’ two child cap is hitting incomes, pushing people into poverty and has led to the implementation of the intrusive and disgusting Rape Clause. It has to go.
There is nothing about cutting support that makes it easier for people to get into full time work.
The cap is social engineering. No child should ever be denied support. Tories are turning their backs on families – most of whom are in work – in order to give the wealthy a tax cut.
Rather than making parents and children pay the price, they should make businesses pay it through a real living wage and an end to zero hours contracts.
