Thanks to the Des Moines Register for publishing my essay, “Obama puts the poor at risk.”
Conservatives and liberals both agree on the need for a societal safety net. The challenge is to determine how high, how much, how long.
Honorable people can disagree on the details, even as they agree on providing a helping hand that leads folks to independence.
This essay explores the risk President Obama imposes on our nation’s safety net if we continue to overextend ourselves.
