And…more than 37 million children could lose the enhanced monthly child tax credit (CTC) if Democrats adopt Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.V.,’s reported desire to include an income cap of $60,000 per year…on families.
Manchin’s Christmas Outfit
Manchin’s home state of West Virginia would see a 58% cut in recipients with the income cap, with almost 190,000 fewer children qualifying, the analysis finds.
The estimate also doesn’t take into account a work requirement, which Manchin has repeatedly said he supports. A work requirement “would further reduce the number of children with access to the credit,” the report says.
Nice guy, right? No doubt beloved by every sweatshop owner in the state of West Virginia. Plus, the truly oversized SOBs who own the coal mines Manchin invests in.
Breakfast, this morning, with an old friend. The song, that is.
She has been described as “a vision of the future” who is every bit as good as other abstract artists today, but Ai-Da – the world’s first ultra-realistic robot artist – hit a temporary snag before her latest exhibition when Egyptian security forces detained her at customs…
But because of “security issues” that may include concerns that she is part of a wider espionage plot, both Ai-Da and her sculpture were held in Egyptian customs for 10 days before being released on Wednesday, sparking a diplomatic fracas.
According to [her designer, Aidan] Meller, border guards detained Ai-Da at first because she had a modem, and then because she had cameras in her eyes (which she uses to draw and paint). “I can ditch the modems, but I can’t really gouge her eyes out,” he said.)Meller, border guards detained Ai-Da at first because she had a modem, and then because she had cameras in her eyes (which she uses to draw and paint). “I can ditch the modems, but I can’t really gouge her eyes out,” he said.
Gotta love Cold Warriors. If she was coming to an exhibit, say, in Washington, DC…she might have been shot on the spot.
