Sustainable Populations

San Jose - Submitted by RickyDub on Feb 27 2014

Rather than giving families tax breaks for every child they have, only provide this assistance for having children at all. Greater aid can be given to low-income households as well as those who foster or adopt. However, if people choose to have lots of children, they are individually responsible for supporting a large family.

This proposal not only promotes a culture of zero to negative population growth, but also frees up more money for important services like education, healthcare and childcare. While some people believe it is their God-given duty to have a large family, they can turn to their religious institution for aid rather than relying on a secular government to support their religious practices.

NOW it's your turn...
