Joe Manchin Privately Told Colleagues Parents Use Child Tax Credit Money On Drugs

It is indeed a fair point that some people spend extra money (regardless of how it is acquired) on drugs.

That said, if this talking point is truly about saving people from themselves then the richest among us need to be saved more than anyone.

When it comes to government money and drugs why does no one ever talk about the tax breaks that country clubs get from local governments. Why does no one talks about the coke and xanax and other stuff that gets passed around those clubs?

Why don’t we ever talk about our inadequate tax system, and the money that instead gets spent (by wealthy folks) on drugs?

Rhetorical questions of course, “drugs” here is just a dog whistle for “poor.”
