Lazy moms cost the economy 100 billion dollars

You want to know what is really nice about our society? We get to demonize certain groups, and then victimize other groups. An example of this is an article posted on CNN – unpaid child support cost tax payers $53 billion.

The article talks about how when the dead beat dad does not pay child support, and the child has to go on public assistance, this cost the tax payers billions of dollars every year.

To be fair to both sides of the issue, lets spin that article around. The article states “41% of households headed by single women are below the poverty level.”

In other words, 41% of households where the woman is too lazy to go to college or learn a trade or sill, those families are below the poverty level.

Instead of saying its the dead beat dads fault that the mom and children are living in poverty, lets lay the blame where it belongs, on the mom. How many of those moms living in poverty have anything besides a high school diploma? How many have a science degree such as engineering or computer sciences? How many of them sit on their butt and expect other people to provide for them?

If the dead beat dad is expected to have a job and support his children, then the dead beat mom should also be expected to have a job. Need more money to take care of your children? Get your ass up, get an education or job skills and get a job.

Do not stand there and complain that they dead beat dad is not providing for the child.
