that welfare recipients are allowed to have? We are trying to save this country and all entitlements should be on the table. Give me your thoughts and please keep it civil.

Limiting children...sounds like China. Surely there's a better way, of yeah I think a better education ( or some education and I don't mean sex ed) would help a little.

Keeeping it civil of this topix site...may be wishful thinking for most participants.

I think if you can't afford to take care of more than 3, you should have enough sense to get on birth control or be fixed.

Absolutely there should be a limit. I think welfare recipients should be allowed one child (anyone can make a mistake), that child is issued a ssn#. After that, they can have as many as they want, but they won't be taxpayer supported. The individual gets to keep their rights to have children and the taxpayers get to keep their rights to not have to continue to pay for an individuals decisions. I would love to have another child. I can't afford it, because by the time I pay for insurance to cover the pregnancy and delivery and the out of pocket expenses, I just can't afford to do it. I sure don't think it's fair for someone else to be able to have children and someone else pay for them and I'm penalized because I don't expect others to pay for my children. Just saying....
And where does it all stop? I've worked at a bank for years and if you had to hear the customers coming through year after year bragging about the size of their check cause of babies, you may look at this a little differently.

Sounds like human trafficing doesn't it? Bet those women wouldn't like to think they participate in human trafficing would they?

No...But having babies to increase your check is just that. I just don't understand why social services don't just tell them, no more. Next time around, we take the baby, you get zero. There is so many good families who are waiting to adopt. There is a long waiting list. Bet that would decrease the number of welfare babies, when the money stops.

I know family that has 7 kids, neither the mom or dad holds a steady job. They eat the government up with foodstamps and medical bills. Every time one gets a head cold they rush them to the er. My family almost does without food, and we cant get foodstamps, where this girl gets over 1,000 a month. May be I should be like her and her hubby, have me 5 or 10 kids and sit on my sorry ass and let the government take care of me and my kids.

it is my unerstanding that things changed with welfare several years ago and you could draw a check for only 1 child no matter how many you had after that 1, the check didn't increase.am i wrong?
child support recovery collects child support from te parent that is to pay the support and see that the 1 who has the child gets it.that is not taxpayers money. tanf check is welfare but is it raised for every child?

Welfare should only pay for two and for the tubes to be tied if they dont get fixed we should not pay for any more babies!! And their checks should not go up!

Where do you draw the line at violating the personal rights of the poor versus violating the personal rights of other, nameingly ObamaCare, religious freedom for the increasingly persecuted Christians in America and gun control? I suppose freedoms only apply to those with a certain number of digits in their pay check and belong to certain groups. You simply can not have freedom with an abuse of the system. We call it white collar crime as well. I also suppose that it is ok for the wealthy to abuse loop holes in the system, while the poor can not. You can not have it both ways. You can not have your rights all the while denying others theirs. Take your pick, increased government involvement or freedom for even those you deem unworthy. Then decide if some of China's rules are bad things or not.

Personally, I think there should be a limit and there should be a qualifying test to be allowed to be a parent with all others remaining sterile until they pass the test. This applies to all groups of people. The rich are bad parents as well, but such laws are deemed a violations of human rights. Decide where your rights are more important than law and order.

We don't have the right to limit children but whatever children you have when govt assistance starts should be the only ones you receive money for.

The constitution of the United States guarantees life and liberty but not entitlements. Therefore limiting children would be unconstitutional limiting entitlements would not be. Michigan a liberal democrat almost socialist state has limited welfare for all of its citizens to a maximum of four years. Surely a Conservative Georgia congress could do the same. Tyler Harper if you want to be re-elected this type of legislation which is hard hitting and would make a difference would be a wise career move.

The problem is its not the smart ones having all the kids. Its the dumb irresponsible ones that have them. The world cannot afford to keep taking care of this. I think people should be born sterile and have to earn the right to be parents. Then there would be no unloved or unwanted children. They should have to work to buy a license to bare children. That would be great.

wrong!!!it's stupid to continue to have children you can't feed or clothe.Most folk my age can remember their own parents WORKING to feed them.If all freebies were cut off to healthy adults and you could only GET freebies for one child and for alimited amount of time,you would see a big turn around.Just a couple of days ago I was in picking up meds for me.[which I pay for].A young man walks in,tells the pharmacist this is covered by mcd,and this will not be covered til Friday.What the hey? this is a young healthy man getting mcd???What is wrong with this picture???
IMO you can have all the children YOU can afford.
