Manchin wants limits for child tax credit in spending package - report

Democratic Senator Joe Manchin requested new changes to United States President Joe Biden's spending package, Axios reported. He allegedly asked that the child tax credit include "a firm work requirement" and that the family income is capped at around $60,000.

Manchin's demands come amid protracted negotiations over the spending bill, which was originally worth $3.5 billion, but has since been cut down in an effort to win support from more centrist Democrats such as Manchin. Biden expanded the child tax credit earlier this year from $2,000 per child annually to $3,600.
