This slows down the economic growth rate. Using programs that could affect the generation in later years is not a good move. Even if the program would save some present expenses, the long term goal is far much more important than the short term solution. The short term solutions are just a way of avoiding the real issue at hand. Majority of these programs are for those who cannot afford the real deals. The government avoids to improve the wages of these parents and opts to start up anti-poverty programs. Good programs solve issues that affect citizens directly. In addition they should all gear towards achieving a permanent solution. Some programs have side effects that appear in later stages in life. An example of this program is the one that rectified and hearing disability but later prevented the child from speaking. Such programs are dangerous as they could make one have a far much condition than the one that one had previously.
