Louisiana Legislator Wants Fewer Poor Kids

A most worthy cause. His solution? Pay poor women $1000 for sterilization.

His suggestion brings up for discussion an age-old topic. Comments always arise about the appearance of the poor having large families. The perception is that the heads of the household living off the public dole are raising an exponential number of future public dolers who will raise another exponential number of future public dolers. Sounds like a Ponzi scheme. This theory has not been proven. But it has not been disproven.

Before the African-American community put stereotypes under a magnifying glass, there are more whites than blacks on welfare. This has been proven.
