I find myself thinking of the plight of the American underclass almost everyday. It’s a constant stream of headlines that reflect the fact that poverty is prevalent in America today. This week’s media headlines are very telling about income inequality, and the effects of it on children with special needs. These stories have made me reflect on my own situation in America.
In America, in the early 2000s, the government estimated that 6.6 million children out of every 1,000 were “displaced.” This number is based on a study called “Displaced Children: A Report to the Congress of the United States on the Need for Assistance and Services for Displaced Children” (PDF). In the last decade, the number of Americans who are homeless is at an all-time high.
The problem is that the government doesn’t have the resources to help these children, and there are no shelters or programs to assist them. In addition, the government’s only solution was to declare them “disadvantaged.” But that seems to have only made things worse, and the government has turned its attention to a much more effective plan to help these people. Instead of helping the children, the government is helping the parents.
Well, that was the plan from the beginning. They wanted to give these families and children an opportunity to escape poverty. But instead of giving the children a chance, the government gave them a chance to escape poverty. What a shame that the government didnt make the same mistake it did in the past.
That’s right, we’re going to stop it. Because the problem is the government has a new solution for every problem, and we’ve already tried that and it didn’t work. Instead we’re going to stop the government from giving families and children an opportunity to escape poverty, and instead we’re going to make sure that those same families and children will never escape poverty again.
This is a little controversial since, yes, poverty is a problem, and yes, the government needs to stop giving people welfare to solve that problem. But let’s be honest here: The government already has a solution, and we don’t need another one. We already have one: the welfare. And welfare is bad enough that it’s pretty safe to say it’s not going to be making a comeback anytime soon.
It’s not a new idea, its a new way of thinking. It was first coined by economist Thomas Sowell to describe the way that the U.S. government has taken over the welfare system and made it a tool of the state. The idea is to redistribute social security benefits to the poor by eliminating the need for anyone to receive welfare. And this is just what the current administration is doing. The federal government has already started to take over the welfare system.
“The idea is to redistribute social security benefits to the poor by eliminating the need for anyone to receive welfare.” I’m not sure I agree with your statement. The only people who will be receiving welfare money are the poor. And as we know, the poor are already getting their benefits. Many millions of Americans receive food stamps, housing benefit, and unemployment benefits for free.
Welfare has become the primary form of income for the poor because if they cannot find work, they will be receiving government assistance. A recent study found that 42% of those who receive food stamps are not working and only 20% are working full time. So we can’t really blame government for the fact that more than half of those receiving food stamps are not working.
Yet another study from the Department of Agriculture found that only 7.5% of households with a household income of less than $25,000 a year actually earn enough to pay the bills. In fact, about half of those receiving food stamps are actually receiving food stamps for free. In other words, more than half of those receiving food stamps are not working.
