Critics say monthly child tax credit payments, now available for more than 35 million American families, could discourage people from working, but Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen disagrees.

Yellen spoke with Judy Woodruff about the expanded credit, Biden’s infrastructure spending and health of the U.S. economy.
