At Home

Evans, M. Stanton
September 1969
National Review Bulletin;9/16/1969, Vol. 21 Issue 36, p142
The article supports the new federal welfare program, which allows states to receive federal aid without the danger of federal controls, proposed by the Nixon Administration in the U.S. in 1969. One important feature that the author cites is the federalization of the system, in which Washington takes over a large measure of the financing and establishes national eligibility standards. On the other hand, states who do not agree to the program will receive no federal aid as what they enjoy now.
