Comment: Hi,

Please change the maximum child tax credit to 2.

As you assess the current tax situation please consider this. People are
having children when they can't afford them. This puts a burden on society
in so many ways. All of us are expected to fund schools for these children-
even when some of us have personally chosen not to have children due to our
poor economic situation yet we end up paying for other peoples children.
And then these people are getting a tax break for having these children.
This is not good. And it really irks me. We need to encourage people to
keep their families to 1 or 2 children and one way to address this is to
keep the maximum tax credit to 2 children.

Thank you for considering this.
