This *single provision* in the March 2021 Democrat-only American Rescue Plan is currently lifting almost HALF of all children in this country out of poverty. A remarkable feat! Manchin’s red line would deliberately shove millions of them back into poverty.
NEW: Sen. Manchin has told the White House the child tax credit must include a firm work requirement and family income cap in the $60k range, Axios has learned. These demands would dramatically weaken one of Biden's signature programs. trib.al/c5eTboi

She responds by saying she “hadn’t actually considered that fiscal could act as a demand constraint if it has to.” It’s an interesting idea. Worth a listen.

"You shouldn’t think of [the national debt] as the debt. You should think about that as the total investment the federal government has made in the United States people—the population—over the history of the country, minus taxes."—@RepJohnYarmuth after reading The Deficit Myth
