Her numbers might be off but the fact that folks get huge refund checks when they only paid in a little is just that fact.
(EITC) is a tax credit for certain people who work and have low wages. It's not for people who don't work or are much higher on the wage scale..........just trying to keep it real......some folks on here would take her numbers as facts..........lol

Why is it called an " income credit"? Just call it a form of Welfare because that is what it is.

The poor the working man has always had the taxes on his back and paying bills of the government. People who millionares and have the kind of money that can buy anything should pay this. They have the cash. The working man should not have this put on him.

How is that when only about 50% of the people pay the taxes. Get your facts correct. That brings us to this. What is a fair tax?
Would it be fair if everyone paid the same percentage of tax in relation to their income? If they did then that would be fair. Is it fair that someone that choses not to work and produce income
be supported by the 50% that works? If the millionares in the country paid twice the taxes they currently do that would not not
have a great effect in reducing the debt of this nation. People that get up and go to work each day, the average man, pays the bulk of all taxes. The poor pay very little except for gas tax, tax on beer and cigerates and a few others.
