The monthly child tax credits have backfired on us

No one had a problem with them when it was a yearly lump sum but the monthly deal has become extremely divisive and made it seem more like a welfare payment and easy to attack. Ironically, it's made it more difficult in Congress to keep it going now the whole thing might end up going away. Was this monthly payment Bernie's idea?

I can't stand Manchin more than anyone else, but if all he was asking is for a work requirement, then we should've taken the deal. I hate that we are losing money for climate protection and Obamacare just for a work requirement for the child tax credit. BBB is so important for the future out of country and planet Earth and to let it all go by the wayside just for a work requirement for a child tax credit, seems ridiculous to me.

Why doesn't a popular progressive governor of a red state get any media attention?

I'm talking about Kentucky's finest...Gov. Andy Beshear! He's young, progressive, crystal clean background, carries himself well in interviews and speeches. He checks a whole lot of boxes. However, because he is not out spouting crazy stuff or doesn't come from a big media center, he is ignored as a national candidate. It makes virtually no sense at all. Our party seems to be only consumed with candidates from the coast, which is part of our problem. Unlike Buttigieg, Beshear has won a statewide race.
