Tax returns allows people to buy nice things they can't afford the rest of the year. I am single and don't have any kids. So any extra tax return left over after paying bills can go towards whatever I want it to. Same goes for you.

I pay rent on a one bedroom apartment, gas and electric, cell phone bill (I am on a family plan with my parents. If I wasn't in couldn't afford my phone bill), car payment (I chose to keep my car over the house I had to short sale), insurance and gas for said car. What money I have left over goes towards food.
But I have a better question. Who are you to look down on me? I know I am not as bad off as some folks. I at least take responsibility for the situation I have created for myself. But raising the minimum wage to ten dollars isn't going to make that much of a difference when cost of living is so high across the nation. Sure it might get some folks off government funded programs. But they will still be in the same boat just without the assistance.
Forgive my spelling. This was sent from my phone.
