All we are really changing with this bill is the one thing that is not wrong with welfare-the financial relationship between State and Federal bureaucracies. That is not the problem. The real problems with welfare would remain. The rules that penalize marriage and work. The county bureaucrats. who do nothing to help people take care of themselves. The brutal job market. The deeper cultural forces driving increases in divorce, illegitimacy and teen pregnancy. All these problems would remain. Many would get worse. All this bill does is require States to penalize the children who are the victims of these problems.
