I was not a government employee when I got EIC. You are dodging a basic fact 'working folks' are just that- cops, soldiers, firefighters, and teachers are all 'working folks'. That you attempt to segregate 'government workers' from 'working folks' is telling.
Now back to WIC, reduced price lunches, and EIC. You seem to not know these programs and who is eligible. Reduced price lunches are for people who have jobs so they don't qualify for free lunches for their kids at school. WIC is for anyone earning under a certain amount, depends on the state, for pregnant moms and young kids. Earned Income Credit (has a new name these days) is for folks filing taxes, have dependent children, and earn under a certain amount.
Millions of 'working folks' qualify for and use the three programs who are not government workers. Anyone who earns under certain amount, not just Gubmint workers use these programs.
Again I don't see people rolling their eyes over a black conservative... they are doing so because you don't see government workers as working folks. You don't understand what programs are out there for 'working folks' and you make unsupportable wild-assed claims about 'working folks' you claim to know in the oilfield who don't take a single taxpayer dime
Bet their wives and children do....
