They don't, but their parents do LOLOL..
There should be no child tax credit at all. Wether it’s monthly or yearly. Maybe for the poor and that’s it. When I talk of poor I am speaking below the federal poverty rate.
Dang free stuff really gets you revved up! The DNC folks salute you
Oh yea-yah, posting is now considered support for welfare...
You will find that many who do work still qualify.
It's not a tax credit at that point. Not in any real sense of the words "tax credit" - a discounting of one's owed tax burden - because people living below the federal poverty rate don't pay any federal income taxes. It's just a welfare payment that we facilitate through the IRS by calling it "refundable" (meaning they'll give you the money whether you paid anything in taxes or not). Calling it a "refundable tax credit" is just a ploy to make it more palatable to the people actually paying for it, and perhaps to a lesser extent to the people who are collecting those government handouts.
And that makes the money any less FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE lolol
Not really but it helps.
I didn't say any such thing
So does 40 hours a week jobs..
I never said you did.
For those who can get them or want them. I always had a seven-day work week when raising kids.
Could you say erstwhile about a true confirmation?
I dare say, if people can't find a job today, then it's pretty much a lazy problem. There are around 10 million job openings, fill them first then hand out free money
10 million / 50 = 200,000 at least, some more some less
we have no clue what people paid in the past that get these tax credit to help with their children
You don't think the IRS keeps records or something?
Dive in popularity, so try to buy votes.
The left doesn't even try to hide it anymore.
I don't think the IRS looks at back records when deciding tax credits
Better they make like the hard working men and women all across this country and help themselves cope with the pandemic the best ways they can.
You realize that a tax credit given to somebody with zero tax liability results in a larger return. You additionally realize this is much much different than giving a person a tax break that pays some amount of tax, right?
So, you desire to incentivize those that can't afford to have kids, to produce more, while decentivizing those who can afford to have more kids to have them which is good economically?
Makes total sense.
I think Biden is a great case to illustrate the hopeless partisan divide in the USA. He is Democrat, so Republicans hate him regardless of what he does, and most Democrats also disapprove of him because he hasn't stood up for liberal policy much at all, such as his caving to Manchin etc. Leaves him historically unpopular.
That's not their current practice, certainly. They don't really look at current records when deciding tax credits either, except to disqualify high-income taxpayers. That's a lot different than saying "we have no clue what people paid in the past". We DO know, exactly how much they have paid (or, in the case of many beneficiaries, NOT paid) in the past, we have just chosen to not make that a condition for receiving the "tax credit", because, again, it's not really a tax credit. It's largely a welfare payment for poor people, being run through the IRS.
He does that because it sounds better to Republicans I think. Same reason why Yang called UBI a "freedom dividend". Same reason why Republicans themselves call corporate welfare other names when they support hand outs to corporations. It's all in the branding.
Separate names with a comma.
