This Cannot be True

Billy sent me this message today:

"Rich Webster’s recent article in City Business reads like something from a novel, some sort of dystopian Phillip Dick tale.

It would be funny if it wasn’t horrifying. Here is the gist: 'State Rep. John LaBruzzo, R-Metairie, fears Louisiana may be headed towards an economic crisis if the percentage of people dependent on the government is not decreased. His solution: pay impoverished women $1,000 to have their tubes tied so they will stop having babies they can’t afford.'

This is an elected official, no doubt reflecting the interests of his constituents."
