    A new analysis out Friday confirms that the number of U.S. households with kids that report not having enough food to eat has surged in the months since corporate Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia joined Senate Republicans in refusing to extend the expanded Child Tax Credit benefit beyond mid-December.

    "Continuation of the advance CTC payments could help children avoid food insufficiency, with immediate and lifelong personal and societal benefits."

    Data from the Household Pulse Survey (HPS), a nationally representative internet survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau, shows that from April 27 to May 9, 15% of households with children reported food insufficiency—defined as sometimes or often not having enough food to eat in the past week. In early August, the percentage of families with kids that reported struggling with hunger was roughly 9.5%.
    Food has become more expensive in recent months as a handful of corporate grocery giants and meat, egg, and dairy conglomerates have raised prices while cutting frontline worker pay and raking in record profits amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. But Manchin and the GOP's decision to allow the enhanced CTC benefit to expire at the end of last year is making it even harder for millions of families to make ends meet.
    Right-wing lawmakers let the enlarged CTC lapse despite ample evidence that the popular measure improved the lives of children nationwide. In January, the first month since July 2021 that eligible families didn't receive a monthly payment of up to $300 per child, 3.7 million kids were thrown into poverty.
    In a guest blog post published Friday by the Economic Policy Insitute, Julia Raifman, assistant professor at Boston University School of Public Health, and Allison Bovell-Ammon, Director of Policy Strategy for Children's HealthWatch at Boston Medical Center, wrote:
    "In prior work using HPS data, we found that the advance CTC was associated with a 26% decrease in food insufficiency in households with children relative to households without children. Our findings were consistent with those of other researchers, who found that the advance CTC was associated with a 25% decline in poverty and improved dietary quality for children.
    In a new pre-print using HPS data, we find expiration of the advance CTC was associated with a 12% increase in food insufficiency in households with children relative to households without children by February—and rates of food insufficiency continued to climb since February."
    "While HPS data are not directly comparable to data collected prior to the pandemic," Raifman and Bovell-Ammon noted, "rates of food insufficiency in March–April 2022 were about three to four times pre-pandemic levels."
    "Food insufficiency among families with children poses a short- and long-term moral and economic threat to the United States," they wrote. "Even brief disruptions in access to food can have lasting consequences."
    The pair continued: "Not having enough to eat often disrupts children's cognitive and emotional development and education. This was the case for a child who disclosed that the reason she was fidgeting and not paying attention in class was that she did not have enough food to eat. There may be lifelong ramifications of not having enough to eat in childhood, including increased likelihood of poor health outcomes and avoidable medical expenditures across the lifespan."
    Despite Manchin's baseless and dehumanizing claim that parents would use federal cash to buy drugs, Raifman and Bovell-Ammon pointed out that several analyses "indicate families with low incomes overwhelmingly used advance CTC payments on basic needs for children, including food, rent, utilities, clothing, and educational costs. There is also no evidence suggesting a reduction in employment among parents in families receiving CTC payments."
    It's not too late, Raifman and Bovell-Ammon stressed, for Manchin and the GOP to change course.
    "As Congress turns its attention to the next reconciliation package, there is an opportunity to reinstate the expanded CTC monthly payments," the pair wrote. "Amidst continued inflation, rising food insufficiency in households with children, and the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to affect work, health, and the economy, continuation of the advance CTC payments could help children avoid food insufficiency, with immediate and lifelong personal and societal benefits."
    "The most recent wave of HPS data," Raifman and Bovell-Ammon noted, "show that food insufficiency is concentrated in the lowest-income households with children."
    "Implementing an expanded CTC without exclusions due to work or immigration status will best reach children in families with the greatest need, to the benefit of all children and society," they added. "While some policymakers have considered work requirements to receive CTC benefits, such requirements carry an administrative burden for states and families that often prevents those who most need benefits from receiving them and results in negative outcomes."

    “Which one was it this time?” Chris thumbs a tear that is half crusted to the crest of his daughter’s cheek. By now dawn has yawned the sky, and all beneath its forceful light, awake. The day will pass slowly after the night’s screaming.
    “The sword is in me.”
    He watches a shadow pass over Allison’s face. She is pallid and stuck in a grave somewhere, but he cannot be sure of whose. “And...” Imploring, gently gently.
    Only the silence-shattering flare of a car’s alarm in the parking lot outside resurrects Allison this time. Chris thinks sometimes it is worse when she is born again and again and again. She locks eyes with him and the thought rebreathes here, too. “The sword is in me,” she repeats, a hollowed out timbre to her voice. “And Mom is on the other end of it.”

    it got me thinking and i just.... allison loves dean, even if she doesn’t realise it for a long long time, and except nova (and her dad), she’s probably loved dean the most, definitely the longest in the end, but if she had to choose between saving dean or sam.... it’s because she loves dean and understands dean why she’d save sam over dean because she knows how much that means to dean, and how dean would not be able to live with himself otherwise (possibly with her either) and she’ll always fight for dean, but she knows that fighting for dean means putting sam first, thanks <3

    #she loves them both sm #dean romantically and in a way that she doesnt love anyone else #sam v much platonically and she has so much care for him #but i like to think that allison over the years got to know dean so well #and understands him so well and what drives him #that she knows to put sam above him in a sense ??? #anyway hehe#gucci

    If Allison didn't show up that much on the trailer it's probably because she has some plot and secrets that we must wait till season 3 to know

    y/n: Can you do me a favour?

    five: I would literally cover up a murder you committed, plant my DNA at the crime scene, and take the blame for it if you asked to.

    y/n: ...can you do the dishes?

    five: No.
