Howard Phillips on Welfare & Poverty

2000 Constitution Party Nominee for President

Federally subsidized welfare should be ended

Phillips does not agree with any proposed reforms to the welfare system. He says, “Such activities are beyond the constitutional authority of the federal government. We would eliminate funding.”

End welfare; family income doubles when fed gov’t shrinks

As we abolish domestic and foreign welfare, the wealth and well-being of every working American family will be expanded by the complete elimination of the income tax and other direct Federal taxes. In many cases, household income will more than double as a result of our intention to eliminate all financial demands by the Federal government on individual American citizens and their families.

Deconstruct the humanist-globalist welfare state

[Our party] pledges. the kind of governmental change which is needed to deconstruct the humanist-globalist welfare state and to reconstruct an American republic limited in scope and authority to the bounds established by those who created it more than 200 years ago. If you agree that changing government policy should be the goal---not merely winning the next election---then your choice is clear. You have some chance of success with the Constitution Party, and virtually none with the GOP.
