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.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) delivered a hammer blow to President Joe Biden’s $1.75 trillion Build Back Better spending package Sunday, announcing on Fox News that he couldn’t vote for it because he thinks it’s too expensive. However, according to HuffPost, Manchin was heard in Congress discussing another problem he has with Biden’s domestic spending plan—that it would give low-income parents money that they might waste on drugs. Two unnamed sources said to be familiar with the alleged comments told the site that the senator was heard speculating that parents might buy drugs with monthly child tax credit payments instead of providing for their kids. He is also reported to have said that Americans might fake an illness to claim paid sick leave to go on hunting trips. https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/joe-manchin-build-back-better-child-tax-credit-drugs_n_61bf8f6be4b061afe394006d
