Faulty Welfare System

1922 words, 8 pages

Intro Sample...


Although this new law clarified who the expected beneficiaries were it did not address the flaws of the previous system. So in the same year (1996) The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act for welfare reform was legislated.
This bill contains strong work requirements, a performance bonus to reward states for moving welfare recipients into jobs, state maintenance of effort requirements, comprehensive child support enforcement, and supports for families moving from welfare to work—including increased funding for child care and guaranteed medical coverage. (The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996, ¶ 1)
This act placed the main responsibility of welfare reform in the states hands. This task was eagerly accepted as the states had been actively trying new methods even before President Clinton signed the bill. Some may argue that all of the information provided here is reasonable. Without the details it seems that the reform that has taken place thus far would inevitably lead to a positive outcome. Has it? I defend the position that The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act was not a step towards reform instead it was useless plan that only leads to more problems. With that I move on with the next step in our welfare lesson.
As with most new and untested systems there are defects with the reform plans put in place. For the most part these flaws have received little or no attention from Congress. The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act resulted in a divided society by allowing the possibility of 50 different ways to modify and utilize the welfare system.

    UGBA101A 1. Telephone companies were given the opportunity to set their own prices unless Chile’s antitrust agency determined that there was not sufficient competition for a certain service or geographical region. As a result, the telecommunications regulatory agency, known as SUBTEL, would determine the maximum price the dominating firm could charge for the given service or region. However, firms outside of the one dominating were allowed to set any price they saw fit and could change the prices whenever they desired. The price that SUBTEL ultimately established was reliant upon assumptio

    Materials Requirements Planning (MRP) Material requirements planning (MRP) is a computer-based inventory management system designed to assist production managers in scheduling and placing orders for dependent demand items. Dependent demand items are components of finished goods—such as raw materials, component parts, and subassemblies—for which the amount of inventory needed depends on the level of production of the final product. For example, in a plant that manufactured bicycles, dependent demand inventory items might include aluminum, tires, seats, and derailleurs. The first MRP syste

Dust storms raged throughout the area and turned the previously fertile topsoil into barren land. These storms, coupled with the droughts that came with them, left the area in despair and forced people to migrate in search of new work and opportunities. Nearly every aspect of the Dust Bowl, including its causes and effects on both nature and humans can all be attributed to some form of human behavior, a

    Problems of Philosophy Essay #1 Compatibilism, the belief that one can be entirely free and wholly responsible for one’s actions regardless of the fact that those actions have been predetermined by a previous chain of events, is flawed in its definition of free will and remains contradictory with determinist views. If one is to maintain a determinist perspective, then it is logical to believe that we cannot be held morally accountable for our actions since we lack the free will to carry them out. If you are unable to exercise your free will, it does not exist. Many argue that a distin
