Backwards ...

With a multitude of Governments looking to increase their revenue stream I started thinking. Why are we rewarding people for the burden they place on society? Burden you say? Yes burden! Let’s start with children. You see these families with gaggles of children, the Duggar’s and Gosselin’s come to mind, but who pays to educate these children? Society that is who. Now before you go playing Jump To Conclusions, I am a parent. However I think instead of giving parents a tax deduction, I am thinking we should increase the tax burden for each child. I think the paradigm has shifted from people taking responsibility for themselves and their actions and this may be a great way to reintroduce it.
