Sen. Joe Manchin Doubles Down on Requiring Parents to Work for the Biden Child Tax Credit

Business Insider – Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia dug in on pushing a new requirement that parents work in order to receive the child tax credit on Tuesday as Democrats struggled to get the $3.5 trillion social spending plan over the finish line. Read the full article.

“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. He said in a CNN interview that tying the child tax credit to those with jobs would ensure federal assistance would flow to “the right people.” He maintained he supports child tax credits.
