Okay, I went back a reread the article, how'd you go from the rich stealing OR illegals getting a windfall from tax credits/stealing  to how I'm going to vote?

 
Because Romney is one of the biggest tax offenders around.

I wish Gary Johnson could just go for the cool vote:

Gary Johnson is cooler than you. He lost toes to frostbite on Mount Everest (he made the summit). He's also stood atop McKinley and Kilimanjaro. He competes in mountain bike races. He broke his knee and back in a parachute mishap. 

Oh, and during his two terms as governer of New Mexico he fixed the budget problems, dealt with immigration, increased jobs and remodeled the governor's mansion.

I think it's similar to the EIC or something. You have more deductions than you have income, so they give you money. I don't think it's a refund.

Again, the system is broken. No matter how you feel about the situation, the system simply does not work for the good of the people. Well, not for the vast majority of wage-earners, anyway.

From the article:

"Refundable credits can result in refunds even if no income tax is withheld or paid," the report noted. "

Interesting.

1) So illegal workers actually DO pay taxes on their income. Plus sales tax on their purchases, et al. Kinda shoots a hole in THAT talking point.

2) The law is vague and apparently unenforced. Whose fault is that? Not really the ditch-digger's problem, he's trying to work the system just like everybody else.

3) The problem should be fixed, absolutely.

4) $4.2B into the estimated 12 million illegal workers comes out to about $350/person. I've seen the jobs those folks do, I find it pretty difficult to begrudge them that.

We have two big problems contributing here:
1) Our tax system is hopelessly complex.

2) Our immigration policy, even our very borders, are a patchwork, and loosely enforced if at all.
