Paying kids to do homework

This morning Fox and Friends had a discussion of some schools' new policy of paying kids who do well on their homework.

What a great idea! It teaches kids to function in the new America where if you don't work and don't pay your bills the government will pay you for it! The only difference is that the kids actually have to work for their money.

I'm not opposed to the government helping when people have fallen into hard times through no fault of their own, but when we bail people (or companies) out that have failed due to irresponsibility, we are stealing from responsible taxpayers in order to reward and enable further irresponsibility.
