the whole system is broken
That's why we have this morass of a mess. Bad behavior gets the money, good behavior gets taxed more to pay for it. Responsibility is not required of the recipients while those taxed face penalties if they don't support the irresponsible activities. What ever happened to "Beggars can't be choosers"? We have allowed our society to make the working class become slaves to the slovenly, indolent, and promiscuous. If the children should be taken care of, then fine, but don't do it by rewarding the ones who are causing the problems in the first place.
