Firstly, I don't see anything frugal about having 19 kids. It's like claiming your frugality in having 19 cars or 19 houses. It's a ridiculous claim. A commonly accepted synonym to frugality is "sparing"; there is nothing sparing about manufacturing 19 children.

Secondly, beyond that, it's really nobody's business how many kids they have, assuming they are self-supporting and assuming we are not a socialistic/collectivist/statist nation. Then again, perhaps the second assumption is an erroneous assumption.

I wonder if they get the "EIC" Earned Income Credit? I imagine that refund check from the IRS would be pretty large.

There are other threads about the Duggers on the forum. This thread has turned into a show about a particular family rather than Frugal Living. I have had to delete posts that are not visible. Thread to close.
