Extractions: Welfare Reform Reforming our welfare system is a popular idea with the general public. But the case for significant change would be dramatic even if it were unpopular. Built gradually over decades of accompanying economic and social change, the welfare state has provided some level of material comfort for its recipients but at a staggering cost in terms of dollars spent and lives wasted. More significant than the monetary cost of the welfare system is the toll it has taken on families and children. By providing cash and benefits to mothers who do not work and who are not married, the welfare state promotes longtime dependency, personal irresponsibility, indolence, and illegitimate births. One study found that a 50 percent increase in the value of cash welfare and Food Stamp payments resulted in a 43 percent increase in the number of out-of-wedlock births in a state. The unformed or broken families created in part through our welfare policies are damaging the health, safety, and life prospects of children. Single parenthood correlates strongly with the possibility that children will be poor, fall behind their peers educationally, drop out of school, use drugs, commit crimes, experience mental illness, commit suicide, or become single parents themselves. North Carolina should continue to implement welfare reforms to tighten time limits, promote marriage and personal responsibility, require work, target benefits to the most needy, and encourage efficient operation. Counties should be given significant authority to experiment, and privatization options considered.

In so doing, he abandoned one of the Democratic Partys cherished notions: that the federal government must ensure that the State protects everyone from abject destitution, for life if necessary. His support for the change fulfilled an election promise to "end welfare as we know it." Under the new law, each state receives a block grant from the federal government. The grant is a fixed sum, guaranteed for the years 1996 to 2002, and based on the amount states received for welfare assistance in 1994 when welfare rolls peaked. In exchange for this generous grant and greater flexibility in designing programs, states must find a way to remove a quarter of single-parent families from welfare in the first year, and 50% by 2002.

Extractions: IN WELFARE REFORM The ACLU opposes the "child exclusion" (or "family cap") provisions that have appeared in many state and federal welfare reform proposals. Child exclusions would deny public assistance to: 1) children born while their families are already receiving public assistance; 2) children born to single mothers or mothers under the age of eighteen; 3) children whose mothers are under eighteen and are not residing with their parents; or 4) children for whom paternity has not been established. For the following reasons, the child exclusion is bad social policy and bad law. 1. The child exclusion denies poor women the constitutional right to reproductive freedom. Child exclusions infringe upon the constitutional right of privacy in reproductive decision-making. This right, enunciated in the Supreme Court's 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade , and reiterated in Planned Parenthood v. Casey , means that every woman, regardless of her socioeconomic status, has a fundamental right to decide whether and when to bear children. Child exclusion policies not only discourage women from conceiving children, but also may pressure them into terminating their pregnancies. Conditioning the receipt of benefits necessary for subsistence on the relinquishment of reproductive choice renders the Constitution meaningless for society's most vulnerable women. 2. The child exclusion irrationally penalizes children for their parents' behavior.
Extractions: References The intent of this think piece is (1) to capture the logic and scholarly findings for public and private sector support of nutrition programs in general and nutrition education programs specifically and (2) to build the case for nutrition education as a strategy in welfare reform. The initial thinking occurred to undergird the work of the NASULGC Board of Human Sciences Committee on Federal Legislation and Appropriations which I chaired in l996. In l995, as chair of the BOHS Welfare Reform Task Force, we found that nutrition and nutrition education programs were under attack or "reconsideration" by Congress. A defense was needed to argue for their place in the "general welfare" of the people of the US and the responsibility of the federal government according to the US Constitution. In my own state, we needed to develop the proposal for FY97 funding of the Minnesota State Food Nutrition Program. We now need the logic to link nutrition education as a strategy in welfare reform.
