Each year, the United States spends $65,000 per poor family to "fight
poverty" -- in a country in which the average family income is just
under $50,000. Meanwhile, most of that money goes to middle-class and
upper-middle-class families, and the current U.S. poverty rate is higher
than it was before the government began spending trillions of dollars
on antipoverty programs.
The Dependency Agenda uncovers the
hidden politics of the welfare state and documents the historical
evidence that proves that Lyndon B. Johnson's "Great Society" was
designed to do one thing: maximize the number of Americans dependent
upon the government. The welfare state was never meant to eliminate
privation; it was created to keep Democrats in power.
