You are lazy, uneducated, and good for nothing if you qualify for the EIC
Someone should tell that to my husband as he gets out of bed every single morning at 4am only to come home from work after 5pm. Someone should say that to him while he is pulling 24 hour duty or going through a long deployment.
My husband is in the Army and we qualify for the EIC. We have 2 children. He paid nearly 4000 just in federal taxes last year, so we do our part there too (might not seem like much to some, but given his income it is a lot). I have a 4 year degree, but because of where we are stationed and the job market I am not able to find a job, not that it would matter because putting 2 kids in daycare would basically negate any potential income I would bring in, and because of that we have decided that it is better that I stay at home with them until we pcs or until they are in school, whichever comes first.
My husband works extremely hard and I don't just sit on my ass all day either.
