America’s not faring well on Welfare


Over the last two generations, most of the improvements in the material standard of living of America’s poor have proceeded not from the welfare system per se but by advances in technology and the affordability of goods that have come through the normal workings of free markets.  Read the numbers and excellent details at HuffingtonPost.com  (Liv: OK, class, who can spell Understatement?)

One thought on “America’s not faring well on Welfare

  1. Shocking that such a knowledgeable and informative article would come from HuffPo, that they would be critical of federal welfare programs, actually blaming them for the entrenched entitlement mentality that exists today among America’s poorer class. Entitlements are just as addictive as any drug, and have the same effect. Call to your mind an image of a crack addict. Welfare addicts aren’t much better. Federal entitlement programs have definitely failed,…or have they. If keeping large numbers of people dependent on the government, ready voters for their drug/welfare pushers, then the Dems have done a very good job. They are almost up to 50% and a sustainable reign. Their only problem is that America will devour itself. Hopefully by then they will have established a one-world government that will give them a new lease on life…at least for a while.

    Regarding welfare, the old adage “Give a man a fish…teach a man to fish,” is very appropriate.
