The First Step Toward Welfare Reform?

After reading this article from Republican Senator Mike Lee, my solution to poverty is to gradually do away with the welfare state, bringing back jobs that pays a living wage, putting people back to work.

In his article, Senator Lee presents this valid statement:

"The core problem with our welfare system today isn’t just its bloated annual budget, but its tendency to undermine the two most dependable routes out of poverty: marriage and work."

As the statement at end of this article makes clear:

"The collapse of marriage is the principle cause of child poverty and welfare dependence."

The solution then to welfare, is not to reform welfare, but over a period of time, to do away with it completely, restoring a work ethic in our country, and getting back to God's plan for marriage and the family.
