"Manchin Suggests People Should Work to Get Biden Child Tax Credit" Manchin suggests people should work to get Biden child tax credit

Well there goes Joe's invitation to all of the DC Christmas parties this year. How dare he proposed such a hideous and monstrous idea!
Why the hell would anyone want to work when they can sit on their ass and just be handed free money?

Joe is saving the US from the democrats over-spending spree. I hope he switches parties to the GOP.

How is it a tax credit if they aren't paying taxes to begin with? Sounds unconstitutional.

Not always possible to go back to work. Have seen this firsthand. How do you tell someone that is injured and in a wheelchair (through no fault of their own) that they have to work to survive..and not be cast out on to the streets?
This is a typical right wing suggestion. A compromise that leans in the conservative direction. Joe is just pandering to his red base in WV. Shortly though, he's going to have a moment of clarity. And that moment will tell him his time is up
in 2024...no matter what he votes for or doesn't vote for. So, he can come out and poo-poo the supplemental budget...but you know he has a number that he'll say yes to...and that scares Republicans to death. :)

Maybe if Joe closed the border parents would make mo money? As it is now migrants work for cheap wages.
Parroting talking points is pointless. No pun intended.

It's not, it's welfare though the tax code.

Are you saying wheel chair bound people are incapable of working?

Yeah...whew...yikes. Well, not everyone is a mensa...and to be fair, Stephen Hawking used his brain to make his money..and he was pretty adept before he was wheelchair bound.
But sure...analogy away...sigh...:)

That's one interpretation, but exploitation of the tax code can never be fixed if not challenged.


It's been going on longer than I've been alive. I've always paid higher taxes because I chose not to have kids.

That's why I support amending the Constitution and eliminating individual income taxes, as the Founders' intended. No way exploit what's not there.
