Here's another government disaster we're now all paying for: The tremendous rise in youth crime. The explosion in youth crime since the early eighties is largely due to people being paid by the government to have children they don't want.
Paying people to have children they didn't want started in the early seventies. By the early eighties those children were old enough to make other people's lives a nightmare, and the violent crime statistics much larger.
Think about it. What sense is it being forced to pay no-hopers to breed, and then wondering why their progeny go wrong?
