    the never ending cycle of poverty is due to people having babies they cannot afford.  Have the first and can't afford that one?  Then stop there.  Don't have the next one, or two, or more.  I totally get that.  People can birth their way into poverty and no one wants to pay for those mistakes.  I only had one because I can easily afford one in the lifestyle I want to raise.  But I always argue that it is the repubs policies that do not want women to have access to birth control and furthermore, they do not want sex education classes.  So the focus has to be put on prevention to begin with and pile on top of that a robust program I briefly mentioned above to get this turned around.  No one in poverty wants to be in poverty.  But they need help getting out and preventing them not falling in by better life choices.  And it all involves investing in education.  Go figure.
