    really?, and becuase they pay more in taxes, they also get more representation.

    CA in the house has about 53 representatives. NY 27

    WY has 1 representative.

    Maybe families already are and it's not enough.

    When a single mom has to work two or three jobs and only brings in enough to pay the rent, utilities, child care, gas and still runs a deficit every month, then something is wrong with the system. What is the incentive to work if you make less at a job, than what it costs to put a child in daycare?

    Or there's something wrong with the mom.

    I would rather delve into the question of where the father might be, and why society is not concerned about it...

    actually is it a fact that political representation in the house of representatives depends on the states population.

    Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons. The actual Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct. The Number of Representatives shall not exceed one for every thirty Thousand, but each State shall have at Least one Representative; and until such enumeration shall be made, the State of New Hampshire shall be entitled to chuse three, Massachusetts eight, Rhode-Island and Providence Plantations one, Connecticut five, New-York six, New Jersey four, Pennsylvania eight, Delaware one, Maryland six, Virginia ten, North Carolina five, South Carolina five, and Georgia three.

    In the U.S. most people end up with something pretty close to the life they earned.

    Society is concerned about it and law makers have passed laws forcing dead beat dads to pay child support. But in this economy with 11.5 million still unemployed a lot of fathers don't have jobs. What does society intend to do about that?
