I dont understand why some people are so confident in the governments ability to assist the poor. I have been a federal social worker for over 22 years and to be honest with you I find the federal government to be inefficient. We try to create affordable housing and we create housing projects run by gangs. We try to deliver health care and we get certain areas where poor women cannot get ob/gyn care. We try to deliver basic services and we make is so cumbersome, difficult, and overwhelming that people who need services spend more time trying to get and keep services instead of trying to support themselves.  I think so many people are so concerned about the folks on the right, that they lost focus. Whats wrong with cutting budgets to get rid of waste and focus efforts on helping people instead of creating big fat budgets for some administrators to build little fiefdoms...cynical? Maybe but maybe i see more the the average person.
