If reducing the number of children born to poor families is the goal, then I'd argue supporting their education rather than hindering it would be the best way of doing it. Those with little education will tend to have more children than educated ones, and cutting of benefits is unlikely to reduce the birthrates by a lot, especially since benefits in the US are so tiny.

Hardly, I know an easy way to fix it, it's called imigration reform.
