Mandating Sterilization for Government-Subsidized Individuals
Last time I checked, everyone in the USA gets one vote, yet not everyone is treated equally. Some people pay taxes, others do not. Some people are responsible citizens, some people milk the system. On this particular issue, I have a solution.
The issue is with people that constantly have children they cannot afford and expect the government to pay for their bad judgment. This happens all the time. I have a coworker with a daughter that had two children before she turned 18. She’s been on government assistance for five or six years now. She can even take her kids to day care and pay $1 a day, while working families that exercised good judgment pay full price. She gets free medical care for her children, while I pay through the nose.
Perhaps it’s like the movie Idiocracy, but it seems to me that people that can’t afford to have children, have the most children. People like me that pay taxes and work hard are expected to pay for these other people’s children. This is unfair.
If you exercise bad judgment and have one child that you cannot afford to take care of, the government will help you only if you sign a written agreement that states you won’t have any more children until you are financially able to support them. If you exercise bad judgment again and have another child prior to being able to financially support this child, you can ask the government for assistance, however, if you choose to receive assistance, you will be sterilized.
This solution may seem harsh, but it is fair, especially to those of us that exercise good judgment. Also, this isn’t a one mistake and you’re penalized approach – I am not advocating sterilization after the first child, but only after the second.
