“It doesn’t seem right to reduce a man’s take-home pay with taxes and then send him a government dole which robs him of the feeling of accomplishment and dignity which comes from providing for his family by his own efforts. By the same token, we feel that the able-bodied recipient should be given the maximum opportunity to support his family by doing work in his community which will benefit the community.”
Lyndon B. Johnson sold the War on Poverty as means get people out of poverty. Twenty trillion dollars later, it is apparent that Johnson great domestic war, like he great foreign war, has failed.
