Conservatives hit GOP tax bill for nixing adoption credit

Religious groups, as well as House and Senate conservatives, say that by eliminating the credit, the proposal goes against the GOP’s “pro-life” platform.

The House’s chief tax writer has defended the removal of the credit, but it could pose yet another hazard to overcome as the bill moves forward.

“Being pro-life means being pro-adoption. Congress must remember this as we work through the details of tax reform in the coming weeks,” Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) tweeted Friday.
