    The Trump budget is mean-spirited, hypocritical and also contains outright falsehoods and erroneous assumptions. One particular example is the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). For the better part of two decades it has been off-limits for families in which a primary wage-earner lacks a Social Security Number (SSN). Unfortunately, OMB Director Mulvaney highlighted the EITC and got his facts wrong, claiming that the budget would eliminate EITC for “illegal immigrants.” Clearly it’s time for a fact check at OMB when it comes to who gets the EITC.
