Line o' the Day: LBJ's "Great Society"

What the Great Society in fact showed was that subsidizing single motherhood incentivized breakdown of the family, thereby causing increased poverty by income redistribution. The burden of the “Great Society” income redistribution was so crushing that marriage rates dropped a third, and this third was replaced by unwed mothers married to the government. Nor did it decrease crime, which rose as a result of family breakdown.
