Poopy Pants Welfare

Seriously, is there any good or service the left doesn’t want to turn into a welfare program? The latest example comes from California, where Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez has proposed Bill 1516 to start a new welfare program to provide “$80 a month to buy diapers for children under the age of 2,” Fox News reports. Even if you’re going to have forced wealth transfers, there’s no reason to make them for such specific goods and services. Or government could protect people’s rights to keep and spend their wealth as they see fit. This latest proposal sounds like something my two-year-old nephew thought up; “poopy pants” tends to be his knee-jerk response to any pressing question of the day.
