Posted

More than 100,000 families in Delaware will get checks in July, as the federal government doles out child tax credit monies. That will invest more than $42 million to help 169,000 children in the First State, according to the White House, which issued fact sheets for every state as payments have begun rolling into bank accounts.

  • Thank you, President Biden, for helping the middle class! The former guy did absolutely nothing for us! — Brendan Warner
  • I’m middle-class, and Biden didn’t help me. Oh, wait, I am not a baby mill. — Michael Campbell
  • Baby mill? Is that what you consider families? I thought you people were all about helping middle-class families? — Frank Williamson
  • I’m middle-class, and I enjoyed a tax break under Trump, and a new job. A better economy and better world standing. I also enjoyed watching as hostages returned home from various places, as well as the remains from North Korea. I enjoyed low-cost gas and being energy-independent. I could go on and on, but I have to go to work. — Bob Hice
  • It’s like people complaining about mortgage interest deductions they can’t take and paying property tax for schools when they don’t have kids. There’s lots of things that don’t apply to us in the tax code and lots of things that won’t change anytime soon or benefit us but are good for others (i.e.: schools) Move on. Vote: local, state, country. Every time. — Kevin K.C. VanBuskirk
  • It’s a credit. You know how that works? I get back money I already paid in to. The only difference from what the credit is now is that families will now get it monthly rather than a lump sum at the end of the year. They aren’t getting both. — Frank Williamson
  • Socialism at its best. — Cal William
  • You’re right. This is socialism at its best because it actually goes to help middle-class families. — Frank Williamson
  • It’s not socialism. It’s taxpayers getting their tax return back earlier in the year. That’s all. — Rob Holley
  • One hundred thousand families is about 40% of Delaware needing a government check to survive. That’s what one-party rule has done to Delaware. Sad. — Bob Skuse
  • The way I look at it is, it was my money to begin with, and nobody gave it to me. I earned it by working. — Keith Miller
