Manchin loves “work requirements” limiting aid to families and children

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 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.
