    It doesn't encourage people to breed unless they don't feed their kids. Its meant to be kept proportionally the same

    Modern welfare systems have encouraged the poor to have more children

    So you believe that the few dollars in welfare people get is enough to make them have kids they wouldn't otherwise have? Do you realize how idiotic that notion is? They're people, man. With brains. Not animals. Besides, the cost of raising a kid for 18 years is way higher than the welfare benefits you get for 5 years.

    You do know that you aren't given more money percentage wise for having more kids right (that might not be the case in all states)? You are given "enough" to sustain the kids you have, not over and above that. So you are only rewarded if you don't use that money on your kids.

    I'd rather have a reverse income tax though.

    Yeah in many cases. I have seen parents

    trade their kids for crack among other things

    pimp out their young daughters for drugs

    make porn films using their kids

    not spending on their kids is a minor sin compared to some of the stuff I have seen

    And those people should be in jail. Welfare isn't the issue in that case.

    the point is many of those on the dole don't spend the money they are given for their children on their children, I really don't have any problem sterilizing people like that

    Sterilization isn't the right fix. Attacking the causes of poverty is. Thats why after I'm out of the military (6-8years) I'm starting a non-profit.
