If the objective is to save money on welfare payments, my guess is
that the idea of giving every female a $25K bonus if she does not give
birth until age 23, would cost a lot more money than it saves.
Relatively speaking, we don't spend a lot of money on welfare anymore
because of the 1996 Welfare Reform Act. Still, I like the idea just on
general principles, but maybe giving every female a $10K bonus if she
doesn't have any children until after she graduates from high school
might be a better idea.
