Traditional Families Key to Reducing Child Poverty

A new study by the Heritage Foundation reveals that U.S. children in married-parent families are more than 80 percent less likely to live in poverty than kids in single-parent homes. The Heritage study finds that nearly three out of four poor families in America are headed by a single parent — usually a mother — but when a child's father is married to his mother, and is a presence in the home, the poverty level tends to plummet.

“Policymakers on the state and national levels recognize that education reduces poverty,” said the study's author, Robert Rector, who serves as senior research fellow in domestic policy at Heritage. “But they're largely unaware that marriage is an equally strong anti-poverty weapon.”

The study notes that in Florida, as just one example, white families headed by single parents are five times more likely to live in poverty than those headed by married couples. And in ...

They'll just have to redefine poverty in order to sustain the welfare bureaucracy. What few people seem to realize is, the government is seeking to increase participation in Great Society-type poverty programs. Once said participation is increased, then in a classic example of circular reasoning, the program growth is used as evidence of increased poverty!

This is no silly conspiracy theory. Excerpt: "The campaign objective is to promote a positive perception of the Food Stamp Program nationwide. The key messages should educate potentially eligible individuals about the nutrition benefits of the Food Stamp Program and the role it can play in supporting working individuals and families."

What a devilishly clever system. Any conservative or Repub attempts to curtail it can be denounced as starving children to death. Nonetheless, at the same time, our 1st Lady is on the warpath over child obesity! Is this country crazy, or what?

This is one of those studies that falls into the "well, duh" category. It must have been spearheaded by Captain Obvious.

"Last year state and federal government shelled out more than $450 billion in welfare for low-income families with children, three-quarters of that to single-parent families. “Most non-marital births are currently paid for by the taxpayers through the Medicaid system,”"

Wonder how many of these stats folks vote Obama-Democrat?

I notice the last sentence in the article claims the solution is with the church? I guess the church must be failing in its duty to the community by not solving all the social problems.
