Democratic View Democrats support EITC as one of the governments most successful programs, they claim: -E.I.T.C gives tax credits to low and moderate income families -The program supports single parents to find jobs. -E.I.T.C not only helps the low income families, but also the neighborhoods by having EITC dollars spent locally. -Democrats would like to increase EITC to further support families.

Republicans want to either keep EITC levels the same or decrease them because it is estimated that between 22% and 30% of taxpayers claiming the EITC on their tax returns do not actually qualify for it. They argue the program is error-ridden and is too much of an expense to the government.
