A few days ago, Advance Indiana posted an interview with Nancy Pelosi regarding her stimulus proposal she helped pushed through Congress. Gary Welsh wanted to know if her next big push would be for a one child per family rule like China.
I've got a better idea. Actually it's not my idea, but that of my friend Neil, who some of my Libertarian friends know.
Pelosi says birth control stimulus is good for the economy. Oh yeah? We think so too!
Why not offer a $100 stimulus payment to any loser who willingly sells his ability to pro-create to get a vasectomy or tubes tied? Lots of crack addicts would be in line faster than you can say, "plasma donation". Snip, snip, stitch, stitch, you're done. Society benefits because the taxpayer doesn't have the burden of a life long liability for social services to countless children whose sperm donors have no business (or commitment) to being parents.
PELOSI: Well, the family planning services reduce cost. They reduce cost. The states are in terrible fiscal budget crises now and part of what we do for children's health, education and some of those elements are to help the states meet their financial needs. One of those - one of the initiatives you mentioned, the contraception, will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government.
