California Democrats Prepare to Repeal Welfare Queen Safeguard

Some degree of sanity has survived California’s demographic transformation and subsequent plunge into moonbattery. Don’t worry, liberals, those in charge are working diligently to eradicate it:

California Democrats are trying to reverse a decades-old state law that bars families from getting extra welfare money for having an additional child, describing the law as “sexist” and “classist” — despite concerns that repealing it could compound the state’s money woes.

The so-called “welfare queen” law was passed two decades ago during the heyday of welfare reform.

Welfare reform was unquestionably extremely effective at getting people off welfare and into jobs. That’s why Democrats have been methodically reversing it. Given that California is effectively a single-party state now, they should encounter very little resistance.

Lest anyone imagine that the Dems have benevolent motives, consider the effect on the poverty rate of paying the unmarried and unemployed for every child they produce out of wedlock. The money comes from those responsible enough to only have children they can support themselves. The obvious result will be an explosion in the population of people who don’t work, and a collapse in the population of people who do.

In the short term, this is good news for Democrats, but extremely bad news for everyone else.

In the long term, the reverse Darwinism of liberal survival of the unfittest will debase the population to the point that our descendants will probably ambulate on all fours.

California already has the highest child poverty rate in the nation. Thanks to progressive policy, it won’t be going down. That they want to alleviate the plight of the poor is possibly the most outrageously brazen lie liberals ever tell.
