California Poverty Capital of America

The LAtimes published a story on how California is the poverty capital of America even though we have some of the highest spending on government anti-poverty programs.

The article blames a few major factors:

  • Massive government bloat (nearly a million government employees work just giving out welfare benefits)
  • Welfare programs that just give money without trying to help people into the work force
  • Blocks on new housing construction causing rents to spiral upwards
