The high overt and covert rates of taxation easily account for lowered American birth rates, since taxpayers can no longer finance large families for themselves when they are financing other peoples' children and welfare through their taxes ("U.S. births hit a 30-year low, despite good economy," Web, May 30). More children for welfare families and third-world immigrants who have their shelter, food, medicine, education, clothing, goods, etc., provided at the expense of the taxpayer whose children are never born.
