Should there be a tax on people that do not have kids by age 30?

Posted by: Redspectre

The main economic and morality engine of america is the family. The family is the center unit. However, some decide not to have kids which hurts the economy and the morality of america.

Actually, the reverse should be true. People ought to be taxed for having children.

We should tax the politicians & Wall Street who threw our economy in the toilet instead!

Today's economy, job-market, etc. does not provide ample opportunity for young adults to get ahead. Many are under-employed, or unemployed, as a result. They can't afford to pay-off student loans, buy homes, start families, etc. If they cannot affor... d it, then it would be irresponsible to do it. Instead, they are being forced to put their lives on hold. They are being robbed of the opportunities that their parents & grandparents had (when their age). That ISN'T moral or economically sound   more

What if your infertile or don't want kids, also it's not like were in danger of extinction.

I would make an exception to infertile people since they didnt choose to be infertile. But the rest are just wasting america's time and their time by not having kids. The family BTW is in danger of extinction. Its in danger of being a true moral family that protects the economy. Without families we have no one buying products catered for kids and families and we will have a stagnant economy. Look at europe. In europe the fertility is close to 1.6 and senior benefits are pushing a increasingly smaller workforce to pay taxes. If america's fertility rate goes down, then the entire economy will be in shambles. Capitalism is a system of growth, and you cant have growth without population growth

Even though 9,100 babies are born every hour?

With 137 million babies are born every year?

Why does the "traditional" family even matter why not let people be happy and get out of the lives of others besides its conservatives who whine about freedom all the time why not respect someones decision not to get married or have kid why no let them be happy.

With an average, 2 kids per woman in North America?

Why the hell would we promote overpopulation?

If I don't have children, why the hell does that matter to you? How is that a "waste of america's time" to not have children? You don't know what my circumstances are. Maybe I cannot afford children, maybe I want children later on, or maybe I just don't want children at all. There are plenty of people who DO have children, some of them cannot even afford to care for them, yet you are worried about MY OWN reproductive choices? And seeing as you are probably conservative based on your views, if someone does have children before 30 and cannot afford it, would you change your position on welfare, medicaid, and other services to assist families who need it? I am assuming you will not. This is another reason why Capitalism doesn't work in society.

...I am not a family, yet I buy products.

Look at China! They are putting laws on how many kids you can get!

Really your using Europe as an example the difference between Europe and america is Europe isn't full of conservatives who want to micro manage other peoples lives. They actually respect the freedom and decisions of others unlike conservative Americans(only conservatives really want to dominate the lives of others)

Oh yeah, let's do this even though the world is already overpopulated.

Tax a person for not having a kid? Please. Procreation has nothing to do with morality unless you are smashing the skulls of babies in a woman's womb.

It's ironic that the answer which claims other people are stupid, (3) misspelled "they're" nothing better than an arrogant ignorant person.

If your abortion doctor is smashing baby heads, he or she is doing it wrong.

Emris - It was meant to be satirical & facetious : )

If the economy does not provide an environment where young adults can find good-paying jobs ... Buy homes ... Afford to start a family, etc. ... It ISN'T their fault. Taxing them, as a result, would ONLY create further hardship!
