The welfare state has already practically destroyed the institute of marriage. Why get married when there are more benefits to be had for a single person. The welfare state REWARDS single parents. So let me get this straight...everyone knows that if you tax something you get less of it, so increasing income taxes results in people producing less. If you reward something you get more of it...so we reward people for not getting married, which is a proven fact that single parent households are poorer, have less education and more crimeand somehow this is a winning political strategy for democrats?
