Income tax is theft. Giving the citizens of the United States their hard earned money back at the end of the year; is the right thing to do. When corporations recieve large tax breaks and the government props up the profits of those corporations through subsidies; that's theft from the average citizen on a daily basis. Get your self-righteous heads out of your behinds and pay attention to the TRUTH, and how the economy works.

I agree. It is the right thing. At least the people receiving it ARE working. Alot better than the majority I see sitting on their lazy butts all the way up Huntington that I see while on my way to work every morning.

I don't mind being judged as long as the measure of judgement goes both ways. This country has a way of treating the rich as if they are above the laws; and somehow entitled. Take a look at Hollywood and the scandolous behaviour. Drugs, dui's and the like... just a few slaps on the wrist. And then dimwit Americans return to the box office, and make icons out of these foolish people. It's ridiculous

We should abolish the entire income tax system and return to the original method of funding federal government - apportion the costs of federal government to the states based on population. Let the states determine how to pay their fair share.

You do NOT have to work to get the "earned income" credit. In fact most who get that credit didn't work a day.

It is one of those social credits that are paid just for being worthless. Many people who get no income or just government benefits file taxes just to get these tax credits.

It's why all the tax prep joints spring up in the ghetto. Typical profile is getting disability and/or AFDC, filing a return with ZERO taxable income then getting a refund of $1500+.

Damn right. Now illegals are also filing bogus returns claiming EIC, knowing that the vast majority of returns are never even looked at, just fed thru a scanner to generate a check. We have allowed our country to be turned against us by these short-sighted liberals.

I paid $16000.00 last year in federal alone so I don't have a problem with my two sons who work full time getting an earned income credit. At least they aren't sitting on their a&@es doing nothing like alot of people and expecting everything to be handed to them. One good thing Bill Clinton did. Made some folks work!!

Rightwingers and their policy fantasies are just nothing more than comedy at this point.

Can you imagine what it would be like to wake up tomorrow in the land of rightie?

No federal regulations - The food, air, and water you consume tomorrow may or may not be poisonous to you.--- You are on your own.

No taxes - If you happen to be on of the millions of people who will be struck by disaster next year you won't have the federal goverment to count on to dig your trapped family members from the rubble, they'll be broke. Family members may not make it in time to help since there will only be reminents of the old highway system left.--- You'll be on your own.

No Government Healthcare Programs - Yep, don't need that. We haven't had any need for a federal based healthcare system since ... AIDS. And if we are ever hit by chemical warfare weaponry in our country, the state can handle it, their budgets will be rocking since there will be no taxes coming in.--- Then there's always the safe fall back, on your own.

No Social or Human Resources Programs - "The lazy bums can get a job" says the righties, while their Representatives in DC are voting against every jobs bill that comes before the House. Gas prices haven't even reached Bush's high yet and their is already widespread reports of coordinated gas theft. Imagine what it would be like when people have no food.

Bad things can happen when the "United" States becomes,..... on your own.

Since I paid in 20% of my income in taxes, I was glad to see my daughter get EIC and she could only get it if she worked and has a child. She also goes to school full time, and gets the lottery scholarship to help pay for that. I am against those who never work and have food stamps, hud housing and medicaid and never work and never intend to!!!!

Yeah, stop judging. They could be selling drugs as income instead of drawing welfare.

I agree. I would rather see my tax dollars go towards struggling people who need it rather than go towards supporting the financial system that sucks the life out of the population.

You are an idiot. No one is saying they don't want any government, they are saying it is not right to subsidize and reward those who abuse the system, do not work or attempt to better themselves. Because of such liberal welfare in this country, we are becoming (if not already there), a two class society, rich and poor. There is no incentive for middle class, only penalty to subsidize the poor and illegals with welfare and mandated insurance.

Eliminating oil company subsidies would be a start.
