Gaudy Baubles and Fartworms: An Insider’s Guide to Welfare


Welfare is not what you think it is. Many states ignore federal work requirements for welfare parents. At the same time children on welfare face eviction and hunger every month. Quality child care is outside the price reach of low income children. Food Stamps is throwing billions down the outhouse floor that don’t lead to feeding hungry Americans and—insult to injury—some states are falsifying data in order to win federal high performance money. Whether you are politically conservative, liberal, or independent… or are a taxpayer or recipient of services… all of you are eating from cake that was dropped on a dirty floor. If you want to understand the current welfare system in America, and what could be done to make the system both efficient and beneficial, this book is the complete insider’s guide and analysis you need.
