And why not? The baby isn't gonna generate any profit this quarter. The
guy who wants a family can be all the capitalist he wants, but he needs
to give up some of his own earnings for the wife and kids.

Having to give up your own earnings to fund someone else's laziness is
certainly unfair, and I'm sure the socialist system recipient
acknowledges this as he/she cashes their government check.
