The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) for single workers is so low that the Social Security payroll tax is higher than the EITC if the worker is "casual" or "contract" labor, or is self-employed. That is why many single workers don't even bother to file tax forms, because the EITC is not worth the bother, and they may wind up owing $ to Uncle Sam due to Social Security taxes!
For Father's Day, let's honor dads by protecting key low-income tax credits that help 13 million working fathers and their families.

Thanks for sharing your philosophies with us, Mr. Branson. You are an inspiration to all of us who struggle daily against petty bureaucrats and small-minded, negative people who are just jealous of anyone who tries to DO anything!

The total number of infections in South Korea is now at least 87, and Hong Kong advised people to avoid unnecessary travel there.

Recently it has been established that the most deadly "family" of HIV/AIDS viruses, HIV-1, came from Cameroon chimpanzees, over 50 years ago. HIV, like ebola, SARS, MERS, rabies, Hantavirus, Equine encephalitis, and so many other viruses, causes "zoonotic" disease, of animal origin. The most effective treatment for HIV infection would be immunotherapy, including infusions of anti-HIV antibodies specific to the infecting strains in each patient, and stimulation of the natural immune response against HIV through therapeutic vaccination specifically against the infecting strain of HIV. This treatment method was published in the "Journal of Naturopathic Medicine" (now called the "Journal of Natural Medicine") many years ago, and also in the "British Medical Journal" online edition. I don't know why it has never been tried.

Reminds me of "Tricky Dick" Nixon saying "I am not a crook." "Methinks the Lady doth protest too much."

Despite her reputation as "the Queen of Mean, " the late Leona Helmsley was an intelligent and honest woman who told the truth when she said, "Only the little people pay taxes." Congress has given every break to the rich families and corporations, and NOTHING for the honest, hardworking people who built this country. YOUR local Congressman is responsible for voting for the US tax code, so blame Congress, NOT the IRS, for your tax problems. The IRS does not make the rules, only the US Congress does.
