According to a new Wall Street Journal and NBC News poll, Americans believe that the government welfare in the United States is the prime reason for poverty in America. In a survey done in the states, people were asked to choose the one guiltiest for the unending problem of poverty in America, out of the given options; more than 24 percent of those people in the poll choose government welfare in the United States to be the guiltiest. Not astonishingly, only 4 percent of those people in the poll choose lack of government finance as the top cause of continuing poverty. Similarly, most American citizens also believe that working is the best way to stay out of poverty. Equally, the mainstream of American citizens, about 83 percent of the total populations agree that they need work instead of welfare.
However, Washington looks at this problem in a completely different way. Methodology to poverty in America has just been the opposite. They think that lack of job opportunity is the one driving poverty, so did the 18 percent of Americans polled in the survey said. Robert Rector, the expert in Heritage foundation says: “In either good commercial time as well as in bad, the emblematic poor families of America work only 800 hours during a year or 16 hours a week, they need to work more.”
Not only lack of work, another big reason of deficiency is family failure. Children living with one of their parents are almost five times as expected to be poor compared to children living with both of their parents, and the number of children living in single parent households are astonishingly over 40 percent.
The initiations of government welfare in United States have clearly failed to not only prevent poverty but also to strike its cause. Currently functional welfare system has failed to promote human burgeoning. It has clearly failed to help entities and families flourish. It is a high time for reformation.
War on poverty began in 1960s, The United States has spent over $5 trillion and since then it has never improved, what they have received out of this enormous investment is more poverty. It is now almost universally acknowledged that the welfare system of America has been a total wreck.
People think that the welfare in the United States is unfair to almost everyone: from taxpayers to society, and greatest of all to the poor itself, they are stuck in a system that is destroying their opportunity and hope for their children to come.
