Every year, I get a kick watching state legislators' creative ways to increase funding for public education. Look at the personal-exemption tax credit.

State law dictates that the more children you have, the less you pay to educate them. A family with eight kids gets a whopping $22,800 discount from taxable income while a couple with no children gets none. This isn't rocket science, folks.
