    Some of you guys should just move in with the government already. The constant requests for favors is pretty annoying, imho.

    I have a nephew that got out of the Marines, opend a biz and makes easy 200K now at 26 years old.
    He gets a few bucks for a messed up knee, but otherwise not a penny of anything else.
    Married, 3 children all day care age.
    Its called planning.

    If a prenat is staying at home there is no reason to send your kid to daycare and even at 7$/day unless both parents are working you won't be able afford that. I would also extend it to full-time education aswell.

    Sure. We all deal with the consequences though. Practicality is my overriding concern. Pretending that entitlements are going to either disappear or be fixed and crafting legislation accordingly is disastrous. The people who end up not finding jobs, not getting educated, not getting insured, etc, are the people who will draw those huge sums of money from welfare and aid coffers in the future. You will pay for him and his child one way or another. If you can intervene early and set him and by extension his family on a better path I think it pays to do so.

    My problem is that these well intentioned (and practical) diversions never stay that way. It becomes too easy to include more and more people under its mandate, it becomes too easy for institutions to begin raising rates to adjust for guaranteed government credit from their clients, it becomes too easy for voters to demand more and more, and eventually it becomes an entitlement that does an incredible amount of damage.

    It's frustrating and I'm skeptical because of it.

    I agree, we should make policy based on the best possible scenario. Zuckerberg (Facebook fame) was like 23 when we became a multi-millionaire. No one should get any hands up.
