I agree with Common. "Poor people" should pay something to help their country out. But if they can't or won't pay any taxes then they need to at least do away with the Earned Income Credit. This gives the peolple who qualify for EIC $1500 for every child in their household. I have seen checks in the amount of $6000 to $8000 to families who pay $0 in income tax. Is that fair? Plus they are on other government entitlement programs. Section 8, EBT, WIC, Medicaid. You dumba** need to wake up!! These kind of programs keep them from trying to do better. I mean why should they? They're living good on MY MONEY!!!
And how much of their EIC goes to the dope man? I bet he gets more of it than the kids ever see.
