Save the Economy: Tax Single Mothers!

Quote:

America is in crisis. The federal deficit is spiraling out of control. State governments are turning over every couch cushion they can find just so they can make payroll. Whole cities are falling apart due to lack of funds. Close to a quarter of the nation’s workforce is jobless and another quarter is massively underemployed, waiting tables and ringing up groceries despite having college degrees. There’s no way out of this financial clusterfuck… or is there?

I’ve got a solution: a sin tax on single motherhood.

Sin taxes are so-called because they’re an attempt to mitigate the negative consequences of certain behaviors. We tax cigarettes because tobacco smoke causes emphysema and lung cancer; we tax alcohol because drunk people have a reputation for being violent and getting in car crashes; we tax casinos because they encourage crime and because gambling addiction destroys lives.

So why shouldn’t we tax single motherhood, given the massively destructive effects it has on society?

I’m not just talking about how much single mothers cost the government in terms of welfare: single motherhood itself is a net negative. When I speak of “single mothers,” I’m including both poor, welfare-dependent “single mothers by choice” as well as divorced and widowed women. Here are the facts:

Single mothers are on average poorer than married households, with an annual income of only $25,353, compared to married households’ income of $78,699. The poverty rate for single mother households is 40.9 percent, compared to married households’ 8.8 percent.
Children of single mothers are 63 percent more likely to commit suicide, 75 percent more likely to become addicted to drugs and alcohol, and are 50 percent more likely to become criminals. They are also more likely to engage in these activities at a younger age.
Nearly half of all child abuse cases are committed by single mothers alone.
Children of single mothers are less intelligent than those of married mothers and consistently score lower on IQ tests. They are more likely to be diagnosed with mental disorders, more likely to drop out of high school and less likely to earn college degrees.
Finally, children of single mothers are more likely to have children out of wedlock themselves, perpetuating a cycle of poverty and misery.
Put simply, any woman who has children out of wedlock—or divorces her husband without justifiable cause—is committing an enormously selfish and immoral act. She’s not only damning her children to a wretched existence, she’s placing a huge financial burden on society and the government. Single mothers aren’t heroes, they’re villains, crippling their children for life and saddling everyone else with the bill.

Ergo, the only justifiable solution is to make single motherhood as financially painful as possible.

I envision the Single Motherhood Tax as a highly progressive income tax, levied on all unmarried women with children. A single mother with one child automatically loses 15 percent of her yearly income, with the tax increasing by 15 percent with each additional child—30 percent for two, 45 percent for three, 60 percent for four—up to a maximum of 75 percent for five kids. For the tax’s purposes, any child support, alimony, and gimmedats (WIC, SNAP, Oregon Trail Cards etc.) the woman is receiving will be considered part of her income.

The only way to cure stupidity is to punish it. The Christian/conservative solution of discouraging people from having premarital sex hasn’t worked because it doesn’t address the root of the problem. Having sex in and of itself isn’t an issue: it’s the byproducts of sex—namely, children—that strain public resources and tear apart communities. By hitting unmarried mothers in the purse, we’ll remove the incentives they have to crank out bastards and/or divorce their husbands because they’re not haaaaaappppppy.

Single mothers are the moral equivalent of crack dealers or alcoholics. It’s time to take out the trash.

“I am very depressed and have been crying all week!!!!! This is my 3rd one away from Todd and it has not gotten any easier……guess it never will…SO HAPPY MAMA’S DAY……EVERYONE,” said one woman in an online support forum, Prisontalk.com.

The woman, identifying as Sherron, is one of the thousands of mothers gathering online to mark Mother’s Day, while their children sit in prison.

Yeah, so much for your libertarian bullshit. More authoritarian crap. Why shouldn’t a person who acts like a dick on Internet forums be forced to pay a sin tax too ?
