This applies to military as well right? They are living off my money and contributing jack shit, so I'd hope so.
We already get free contraception, birth control, vasectomies, etc. But there are plenty of people using the military as a social welfare program, because the military guarantees a certain standard of living no matter how many kids you decide to have.

So yes, it should absolutely apply to the military as well. It would have the added bonus to causing people to choose between a career in the military and a family, because most people can't do both well at the same time.

If we just got rid of food stamps it would lesson the burden on the job creators in taxes while ensuring the wild animals we call the poor get less fat. It would be win-win

Fat cat impoverished Americans have increasingly higher amounts of morbid obesity in this country as a result of food stamps, hence why removing them would lower the costs of the horrible healthcare safety net that seems to kick in when uninsured animals get rushed to the hospital.
