we cannot afford anything more ..with the 2 parent having to work and expensive babysitters or daycares ..

no wonder our country is not growing and we have to rely on immigration that usually after a while goes back home or move south where they can live

Well I'm past child bearing age, but if the government would've encouraged us 20 years ago to have more children, and if we had the "Child Tax Credit" around then....I might have had more.

Now you know what's so appealing to immigrants. About $400 a month per child. Nothing like raking in the bucks if your a mother.
