The second point is related to what I said above. The purpose of our government is to facilitate the survival and relative well being of its citizens. In that light, giving tax money back to people with children who had no income during the year is no different than the government setting up a fund or organization for the purpose of helping the unemployed. It's just a service that we, as a society, have elected to provide through taxes to our relatively less well off, in this case assuming they have tax deductible children.
I must be underestimating the actual amount of money they make from taxes.
