Why is THAT aspect of FACTS in the matter seem to be something YOU don't want to address. Hmmmm?
BRIA 14 3 a How Welfare Began in the United States - Constitutional Rights Foundation
Was LBJ President in 1935? No.During the Great Depression of the 1930s, local and state governments as well as private charities were overwhelmed by needy families seeking food, clothing, and shelter. In 1935, welfare for poor children and other dependent persons became a federal government responsibility, which it remained for 60 years.
Even before the Great Depression there was welfare. Same link:
I realize that reading may seem "elitist" to some here, but the chains of ignorance are much worse than the disdain you all have cultivated for a proper education.In 1909, President Theodore Roosevelt called a White House conference on how to best deal with the problem of poor single mothers and their children. The conference declared that preserving the family in the home was preferable to placing the poor in institutions, which were widely criticized as costly failures.
Starting with Illinois in 1911, the "mother's pension" movement sought to provide state aid for poor fatherless children who would remain in their own homes cared for by their mothers. In effect, poor single mothers would be excused from working outside the home. Welfare reformers argued that the state pensions would also prevent juvenile delinquency since mothers would be able to supervise their children full-time.
By 1933, mother's pension programs were operating in all but two states. They varied greatly from state to state and even from county to county within a state. In 1934, the average state grant per child was $11 a month. Administered in most cases by state juvenile courts, mother's pensions mainly benefitted families headed by white widows. These programs excluded large numbers of divorced, deserted, and minority mothers and their children.
the mother's pension was a far cry from the welfare that LBJ started in the 60's for the black civil rights movement. What's really interesting is LBJ voted against civil rights for blacks all the way through the 50's into the early 60's. He demeaned blacks through out his entire political career. If anything, LBJ was the worst kind of racist.
