ur slumlord is more important 2 municipality u live in than u/ur child. Slumlord pays property taxes 2 town, not u. I live in section 8 housing w/child, my slumlord owns lot of property in town. Pays lot of property tax $$$ 2 town. Section 8 inspectors look other way when they come to do yearly inspections. I have leaky basement which they knew about when I moved in,tons of black mold, never fixed. Section 8 inspectors know about it, haven't written it up for 5 yrs. Probably told not 2. Again, all about $$$. If ur not wealthy in USA, u have a much worse chance of actually surviving, as do ur children. We only had child labor laws starting in 1938. "Robber barons" like Vanderbilts, etc.
didn't like that because it cut into their profits. I could go on and on here.. It's very Darwinian/Malthusian/ Hitlerian, "population control/culling the herd", . GOP has never try to conceal their contempt for the poor/social programs.
