All good policies there!!!
I find it funny that during the Roosevelt administrations New Deal when the WPA work programs were in full swing the Supreme Court wanted to declare the programs illegal, but by the time of the Johnson administration and the Great Society massive welfare programs everything was fine. Working for a living (WPA) is bad, but getting free money with no work to show for it is good.
I say that it you have to give hand outs give them out in the form of workfare. Workfare, not welfare.
But would workfare be legally considered to be a form of indentured servitude or slavery?
