Kelly Francis ("More kids, pay less," Forum, Feb. 10) and Paul Hart ("Pay for big families," Forum, Feb. 17) argue for eliminating the child tax credit so parents would pay their share for educating their children. I agree, but it's unlikely to happen due to the impact of an immediate, large and unplanned expense on those families.
Why not a slow, workable plan that would not penalize today's families?:
1. Announce the plan and cap the number of allowed child deductions.
