Fucking hell... Imagine if you're one of those illegals with 5 kids. 15k a year to do fuck all while dad working under the table for $$$$.

Then they qualify for free everything while probably banking 80-100k a year while my ass can't even comprehend the amount it would cost my legal ass to have a kid.

Yes. Thats how it works. You do need to make an income however, (cant be living totaly on welfare and foodstamps) Having a good hubby that makes decent money doesnt affect the outcome either, so at least there is that.

There is a limit on how many children you can claim too. Somewhere between 3 - 5

The lazys find loopholes around it but at least they have some standards.

I'm confused, how is the child tax credit a monthly payment? I thought it was just a tax break?

This is definitely an expanded UBI for families, opens the door to extend it later.

I got the letter in the mail about this from the IRS. I have three under 18 kids. This $3k is the Child Tax Credit that I'd normally get as a deduction when I would file my 2021 tax return in January of 2022, but I'm getting it early.

At least that's my understanding. I threw the letter away in disgust after a brief scan.

So, it's not a new UBI, it's just paying people out for what they already would get under the existing tax code, but in a UBI-ish way.

Frankly, for all those who think the Dems want to collapse the economy, I think they are trying to apply Keynesian economics and flood the country with money to prop things up before the 2022 midterms, and this is one way to do it.

From what I read on the website, it's no longer just a tax reimbursement, but it actually pays the amount to people who don't file/pay taxes. So definitely a form of UBI for them.

I have children.

Basically the child tax credit works by reimbursing you a set amount (3,000) per child, on top of your normal incometax, during tax season.

Either way, Bidens just finding a way to recive praise for something that already exsists. Makes it look like hes doing something for nothing.

Ah, well thats the parts Biden faniggled with and im not surprised. I bet he changed child claim limits and welfare disqualifying one from recieving benifits as well.

What a tool.
