Child Tax Credit recipients, how many of you have been able to return to work or increase your work hours because of your CTC payments?
For those without kids, do you know people who have been able to return to work because of the CTC?

One of the 15 unhoused recipients also did something entirely unexpected with the cash. She donated some of it back to the organization itself. They said, “You didn’t need to do this” to which she replied “I didn’t do it for you. I did it for myself.”
She did it to feel dignity. pic.twitter.com/BxA6iiQLqG

The only difference is that we pay into SS for all our working life and we wouldn’t with UBI. It would come from the prosperity we create. https://t.co/LFxHrP6GXQ

Dolly Parton also launched UBI for Gatlinburg, TN when the town was devastated by fire:https://t.co/KrlsUFWI57

.@MayorFrey is joining @mayorsforagi to secure an income floor that provides dignity and agency to recipients. The American people deserve a social safety net that includes a #guaranteedincome to meet the challenges of today. pic.twitter.com/EGJQqPMTJa
