This has to be the funniest post yet!! Guess if you listen to CNN & Liberals this is what you'd hear.

Liberals think they're smarter than everyone and everything. If their noses were any higher in the air, they'd drown on a rainy day!!

And Libertarians are smarter than liberals

Libertarians promote individual achievement. Liberals promote redistribution of other people’s production.

Libertarians are smarter than liberals | Capitalism v3

The thread is rife with updated data. Guess what? It's as bad, and in some cases worse, than in 1996. That kind of puts your theory to bed, doesn't it? Yep, sure does.

A "liveable wage" is relative. Having a baby falls under what's consider "liveable." If you can't afford to "live" after having a baby, then you shouldn't have a baby. It's just common sense.

If one want's a window into the liberal mind, look no further than this. When painted into a corner and with nowhere left to go, this is how low they stoop.

You fit right in with the liberal crowd here. That's nothing to be proud of, I can assure you that.

Now...back to the OP: Define for us your version of personal responsibility. Can you do it? So far, all you've put forth is deflective tripe not worthy of consumption.

I am far more concerned with the health of the woman and her child than I am of the economics of the payment of for the care. To me it is more important that women can have children in a clean safe hospital than it is to save me and/or some rich guy some money. I see no reason to punish women for becoming pregnant even if they cannot financially support a family. There is more to the world than money.

I vastly prefer my taxes be spent on protecting women and children, including supporting both as they need, until the child becomes an adult than to have the taxes go to making weapons to enforce our control of the world by killing women and children in some far place on the other side of the world.

I can only conclude that this makes me a "Pro Life" liberal and the people that prefer war to children 'Pro Death" so long as it is not theirs or their fortunes.

No one is suggesting that the "health of the woman and her child" should be compromised. I am merely suggesting that she (they) shouldn't get pregnant if she (they) knows that she (they) can't afford that child (and subsequently it's health and well-being).

Medicaid is a function of being poor and/or poverty-stricken. These are the last people that we need to be having children considering the existence of the revolving door of poverty in this country.

Perhaps by providing pre-conception information and contraceptives to reduce the birthrate in the first place?

Aero should just come out and say that he hates poor people plain and simple. Just because people can afford kids doesn't mean they can afford thousands in medical bills. But hey you obviously don't care so continue on ranting.
