We would also like to note the horrible aftermath of the Sixties Great Society/War on Poverty, shown in the top line, when the rate fell from 21.9 to 12.1 percent in just five years.
So how's that Great Welfare Reform (GWR) working out? Why does poverty increase under welfare reform as the economy improves? Why is poverty under GWR higher now than it was in 1973 -- at 11.1 percent -- under the bad old welfare system?
