Louisiana Representative John Labruzzo is a unique problem solver. Recognizing that generational poverty is a problem for many people in his state, he's dispensed with the usual solutions of education, training, access to reduced- or low-cost family planning or any normal poverty-reduction programs in favor of paying poor people to get sterilized. What? It could significantly eliminate generational poverty by eliminating generations! Anyway, when he was called upon to defend his shitty idea, he blamed it all on the media blowing it up for ratings' sake, even as he successfully danced around blaming it all on black people. I dunno, I can think of one person who probably ought to refrain from breeding. He's named "John LaBruzzo." [Think Progress, Feministing]
