    Kick the poor and middle class seems to be one of the Republican mantras.

    "A coalition of liberal Christian leaders..."

    Enough said...

    I'm surprised that Huffington Post was courageous enough to put that fact right out there in the open. :laugh:

    It is wrong for the GOP to slash these tax credits for the poor. Hopefully it is only a negotiating tactic. If it is, it is quite cynical.

    The EITC is simply welfare.

    Eliminate it and make the payments need based - not just a blanket distribution of taxpayer money.

    Isn't the tax break based on income, number of children, etc? Therefore, isn't the needs testing built-in?

    Not really because there is no asset disclosure.
