The leaders of our nation need to try their best to fix the economy, instead of tearing it down… and the cost of living, where one income would do for a family… so the mother, if she wished, could stay home and take care of her family. I know that my husband and I would rather pay extra income tax towards giving a mother a reward for marriage and for taking care of the children in their own home, rather than seeing day care centers spring up all over our nation and funded by our government, which we help pay for anyway!
As it now stands if a couple has children out of wedlock, they gain more monetarily by remaining single and either living in the same house without marriage or go their separate ways without benefit of a mother and father to their little one. What a sad commentary it is when evil and weakness is rewarded in our country and on the other hand and for the same consideration, marriage and making a home for a little child is penalized!
If every house hold were taxed for this reason, what an improvement in morals and child care it would have for the United States! Granted, it takes more than perks to have good morals, but our country has been penalizing morals and marriage and giving perks for immorality for a long time.
For instance people can draw more money for living together than for being married in some cases. I don’t begrudge them the money, except for the fact that the little child doesn’t have a good home and also I would like for them to be encouraged to live right and have good spiritual health along with the other needful things in life.
We had rather give our taxes for a mother to be able to be with her children rather than working…than for a grant of thousands of dollars, to study the digestive system of a buzzard and the many other foolish things they give grants to.
And then…there are the cases in families where being satisfied with a smaller loaf of bread would help. -Edna L. Ingram
