Are we there yet?

In the 21st century, the federal government, in its quest to actualize equality, consumes (during peacetime) about ten times more of the American economy than it did a century ago. And yet economic inequality, in the President’s words, still amounts to “the defining challenge of our time.”

Just as oppressive gun control laws allow and encourage the bad guys to flourish expanded welfare laws allow and encourage the welfare roles to expand. If yu want to hae a serious impact on poverty and reduce it to levels we haven't seen since 1960 then end welfare. WHat will happen next is the single women with multiple children frommultiple fathers will get married and the men who don't work will find jobs. Will there still be some poor people? Well, of course but there will be less of them and the federal government will save about $1.2 trillion a year in welfare.
