The Tragic U.S. Welfare Crisis

Updated on May 24, 2017

The Dawn of the American Welfare Crisis

The housing projects and welfare programs started in the 1930s and 40s Great Depression and War years. Welfare was started to pull families out of dire poverty in this country during one of the U.S. harshest times. Housing projects were built for veterans who came home after the war and could not afford to buy a home. No one could see how these two Federally subsidized programs would grow into what could possibly be the death of the U.S.

Once the mid-60s came around the U.S. President Lindon B. Johnson, who uttered racial remarks after signing the Civil Rights act towards African American and the South-Eastern part of the country, enacted numerous Section 8 housing program across the country, The original intent was that landlords would receive their rent in the mail and families would not be thrown out of their homes. However, by the late-60 and early-70s people of all shapes and colors were abusing these new programs and living off of the government.

In many Welfare offices across the nation, women with mink coats would park their Lincolns in front and walk in dressing to kill. They made the employees, who actually worked by giving them free money and benefits, look like peasants. This was one of the scandals coming from Washington at the time.

The other big scandal was passed in 1965 by the liberal lion from Massachusetts, a bill that by today is simply known on the streets as "The Anchor Baby law." The law states that is a woman who is an illegal alien has a baby in the U.S. she can not be deported so the family is not fractured between two nations. Before long these newly illegally arrived none citizens of the U.S. were abusing the welfare programs like families who had been in the nation or generations.

Fast forward to 2012 during the Dear Leader Administration, whom some call the food stamp president, and King Stevie is taking advantage of the citie's disadvantage. The welfare state has been put in place, for gangsters, corrupt politicians, and EBT loan sharks, such as King Stevie to violate anyway possible. It has become a late Roman Empire like state, causing what looks like to be the end of the U.S. superpower.

In the 1970s the welfare crisis was running rampant and the U.S. two largest cities were dying. There were becoming far more people in the major U.S. city on welfare than working and paying taxes.

The South Bronx, New York, and South Central Los Angeles, California were heavily blighted. Waves of people had left and the welfare population stayed behind. In response, large patches of most major U.S. cities were left vacant and blighted. They began to resemble major Western European cities after the bombings of World War 2.
