In what seems like another example of District officials sucking up to their new Republican overlords, At-Large Councilmember Linda Cropp introduced legislation last week that would impose a limit on the number of children welfare recipients could have.

Cropp says her bill promotes “individual accountability, encourages work, and supports family stability.”
