Try telling that to Dr. Benjamin Carson (google him if you don't know who he is). Taking children away from poor parents is not the answer. Bringing back personal responsibility and a good work ethic is. For decades, society has been teaching, in schools as well in popular culture, that work is demeaning unless it makes you rich overnight. The idea of working one's way up, taking whatever legal work comes your way in order to get skills for a better job, and being a self-motivated success have been laughed at and scorned by the media and in our schools, especially colleges. Young adults nowadays, unless their parents taught them a strong work ethic, want things the same way a toddler does: immediately and generously, as a response to their demands. Adults are not 2 year olds, but that is how our culture has been treating them, and that's how they look at themselves, perpetual children who take greedily and only give grudgingly.
