Do Away with Earned Income and Head of Household Entitlements

We have enough people already getting more money back each year than what they paid in. Why on earth pay someone a bonus for simply being a single parent or not making that much money to begin with. In the grand scheme of things, why on earth would we give excess money to those who never really contributed enough to earn it? I grew up in a low income family and I dont truly see where this once a year bonus came to any aide in the long run. We work, we pay our taxes, we claim our dependants, we receive the refund of that money that was not required for use by our governement. Simply put, you should only get back what you put in. Nothing more.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
