There Is No Government Solution to Out-of-Wedlock Birth

The problem of out-of-wedlock birth won't be solved by a government program.

Last week Ryan took after me for praising Barack Obama for his call to fatherhood on the campaign trail, but then not proposing a solution to the problem.

Apparently Ryan was looking for another government program with a budget and rhetoric about empowerment and politically correct bullet points and maybe a 5-year plan. Blah, blah, blah.

The solution is to stop drive-by breeding. Black leaders that I have talked to know this. You would recognize their names. They're just afraid to say it.

And I repeat what I said last week that the problem is not confined to the black community.

You'll find no one more passionate about education and job training than I am, but none of it matters if the dysfunctional behavior of producing children out of wedlock becomes the rule rather than the exception. And that's coming from Daniel Patrick Moynihan.

The government at all levels has subsidized illegitimate births for decades and that very act has done just what any logical person would expect...it has produced more illegitimate births. The only real solution to the "problem" is to stop government subsidies.
