What are some possibly misguided political & social planks in a campaign for proposing legislation

to limit maximum size of the American family to two adults and two children, and to enforce sterilization of adults receiving public assistance? Ohio legislators unsuccessfully proposed this legislation in 1965 when Medicaid took effect under the Johnson Administration. Some voices call for this legislation today. Could it happen? {image: Pixabay]

    Thanks for your answer. Some small groups that still want the legislation passed and I think the larger population will protest loudly enough to stop them.

    Somebody correct me here. A single mom gets so much per child on welfare. The more children within the same walls of a unit -- the more money per square foot. I do not see a real argument that our system does not encourage more poor children.
