“They know I feel very strongly about that. Tax credits are based around people that have tax liabilities,” Manchin told Insider on Tuesday. “I’m even willing to go as long as they have a W-2 and showing they’re working, we’ve talked about that.”
It comes two days after Manchin first suggested requiring people to work and file taxes as a condition to get the advance monthly payments.
