Daily blog: It’s February 12th, 2021, and some of your representatives want to give your kids an allowance of $4200 a year. WOW! Sounds good, right? I mean, really, what could go wrong with a plan to help parents raise their little crotch goblins?
Oh, I don’t know, maybe:
An increase in childbirths. What parent wouldn’t like $4200 more to spend on themselves? Have five of them suckers, and that’s a whopping $21,000 a year.
And you don’t have to worry about teaching them anything. Good old Uncle Sam has that covered too.
The Dempubs say they want to re-orient the American welfare state toward children. After all, the federal government already transfers a hefty chunk of national income from younger people to the elderly.
Got to love how they stated all that with those fancy socialist words:
American Welfare State
Anyway, all that talk about giving us money should take our minds off those gun control bills they want to get passed as soon as possible. That’s a relief; pretty soon, we won’t have to be responsible for anything in our lives.
“I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I travelled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.”
― Benjamin Franklin
