Because Barry O So loved the poor, he made millions more.
What exactly did President Obama do that created poor people? He inherited the worst recession since the Great Depression from the Bush Administration and in his third year the country started on a long run of job creation that has continued during the first two years of the Trump Administration, though at a slower pace than in the last two years of the Obama Administration.
They tend to debunk the stereotype of baby momma with several different daddies.
While married, two parent households were in the minority of welfare recipients, between 14 & 15% of households receiving benefits > 0. So much for the theory that dad can’t be on the premesis for the family to get benefits.
The vast majority of recipients get assisted by food stamps in particular on a temporary basis. It also appears the majority did not complete high school or G E D. Can anyone show me information about the long deceased LBJ mentioned by the O P encouraging anyone to drop out of school?
They were married, dutiful dads, then Johnson signed the ‘Great Society’ programs into existence, and POOF! They were gone?!
The Credit Donkey link shows a majority of welfare recipients lack even a high school diploma. Was that Johnson & his amazing signature, too?
IMO More babies being born into unwed households is more complicated than the ‘Great Society’. Terms like ‘baby mommy’ & ‘baby daddy’ weren’t even in existence during his administration, much less was it considered socially acceptable to keep a baby born outside wedlock. As another has pointed out, incarceration is a factor in dad not being present in many black American households.
And no, I don’t dispute the figure of 70% of black babies being born & raised by unwed mothers. I just think it’s more complicated than the availability of welfare.
