Tell us about The Welfare Reform Act? No one wants to encourage a welfare state or generational welfare families. No one wants that, no one encourages that. No one disputes that it is preferable for children to have two parents. The AFDC program was to help children born of single women, are you aware that 80% of the people on welfare are single white women with children? Are you aware that the polygamist Mormons with one man 6 wives, the wives are all on welfare? I am a Democrat and do not feel welfare Gould be a long term situation, however, I do not to see poor hungry children suffering in this country when we send $10 million a day to Israel.<quoted text>
It's just interesting though, isn't it, that the Moynihan Report focused on the discussion of children being born out of wedlock warning the Aid to Families with Dependent Children program's rules for payments were if the "man was out of the house" leading poor women to throw their husbands out of the house?
And agreeing with Republicans in 1994 that a correction was needed in the welfare system that encouraged women to raise their children without fathers?
Moynihan: "The Republicans are saying we have a helluva problem, and we do."
Republicans are still saying that. So did Clinton when he signed the Welfare Reform Act.
Obama thinks the more the merrier.
Kind of a contradiction to previous democrats.
Your misconception that all welfare recipients are minorities is based on racism and ignorance.
