LOL. No one believes you.

This is whats wrong with America.

you're a little confused about who the loser is.
the loser is the welfare mom who refuses to work, only an obama leg-humper would think otherwise.

Perhaps I am mistaken. Could you link to something credible that show this, please.

That's right. No income means you do not have to file.
You cannot get any credits, etc. if you have no earned income.

I call bogus on this story.

I correctly named the loser.

I know conservatives hate single poor moms who use welfare and get a tax return.

That's because the core of conservatism is exclusion.

Some people can't save on their own and have more than enough taken out of their paychecks so they get a big return each year.

IMHO it's pretty silly to let Uncle Sam have YOUR money all year.
She has no paycheck. She's on welfare.

No income= no tax credit.

As an aside, EITC has been around since the 90's and is not an Obama initiative.

I know. I amended my post to add that I didn't realize the OP was talking about the co-worker's daughter.
