    No one should be on an entitlement unless they are clean and trying.

    That is the problem. I don't want some child going without because of their loser parents. If it was not for that, I would agree with every thing said.

    That may be how you feel but I should not have to pay for someones kid. That is just total theft and redistribution of wealth.
    There is another simple solution.
    Many people have been waiting for a long time to adopt infants. Why not simply give those babies to those who can care for them on their own.
    Let's be real it would be in the best interest of the infant. That is much beter than waiting a few years and then the kid is already screwed up and unadoptable when it is finally taken from the useless "parent".

    And who, besides big government and YOU get to decide who is a worthless parent?

    that is the greatest example of intrusive, big gov't. and I though conservatives were for smaller gov't and less intrusion?

    Doesn't matter which sex they are. There are procedures for both.

    OK lets rephrase that. Why should someone be given taxpayer money for their kid. They can either pay for it themselves or if they can't afford it they should give the child up for adoption rather than let the child suffer.
    Let it remain the parent's choice but don't make the taxpayer be funding their child.
    This proposal completely eliminates any big brother. That includes "Big brothers" money.
    Simply put I should not pay for someone's kid.
    I'm all for eliminating all gov't involvement especially gov't (taxpayer) money.

    Outside of the sterilization topic (I assume most of that was in jest?) how is someone going to the government for a handout and the government wanting to make sure they are not on drugs an intrusion of the government. I had to get a drug test before working for my current job and I don't get free money I have to listen to people complain all day long how their stuff is broke

    No genocide envisioned, and no elimination of entire races. Although we all know it's a pipe dream, what would be wrong with sterilizing losers that can't even take care of themselves? No one race has a monopoly on sorriness, but why should ANY of them get PAID to dump their spawn for the rest of us to pick up the tab for? And we all know the zillions spent on their entitlement isn't being spent on nutritious food and warm clothes, it's going up the parents' noses, slurped out of 40 oz. bottles or smoked; although some of the luckier children get plumped up like fattening hogs on twinkies, Happy Meals and soda.
