Obviously anyone that is eligible for EIC is going to take it, that makes sense. But just imagine how much money the gov't would save if they done away with it, and isn't it also a form or welfare? It is not actual earned income but a giveaway by the gov't.

Here we go again. I am very glad that the EIC is there. Yes, we qualified for it. No, I am not a lazy person who sits on their bum all day. I went to college and graduated with a B.S. in Elementary Education. Unfortunately, the only job that I could find is working at a daycare for $7.25 an hour. Far from the $36,000 a year I was expecting to make once I graduated. My husband is a police officer and he just finished his degree. When he started he was promised a 10% raise, however due to cutbacks and furloughs, he now makes less than when he started 5 years ago. It helps out a great bit. We don't use it to buy big screen t.v.'s or anything like that. I goes towards clothes for our son, savings, and this year it will go towards a new air conditioner/heater since ours went out. In a few years when the economy gets better, we will no longer qualify for it and we will be paying "back" what we received. Cont...

Cont... If you want to complain about the government giving money away. Complain about them giving billions of dollars to businesses whose CEO's made millions while the company was going under.
