    The examples you cite are not UNIVERSAL. That is, they are largely in return for (government) service, not available to everyone and anyone. While there were and are many private charities, even in my grandparents day, it is only recently that we have developed a welfare state. Nor was a high school education expected or needed until recently.

    The tax I referred to, and should have made clear was income tax, which was initiated in the 1930s.

    Your right on the money AliBA , it was sink or swim when you came here with the great waves of immigration that populated this country, just like many other countries who are immigrates too in their own country now SO WHAT!!!, pretty much the whole world wears that coat..Who attacked and conquered Mexico and killed the Indians there???? HMMMMMMM
    The word is "entitlement programs" which passportguy has some clue but they did not start as we now know them today until the 1960's. Immigration today is nothing like the immigration 200 years ago ,so its apples and oranges and a weak excuse to validate the "right" to invade another country, isn't that why most wars start/started HMMMMM could be on to something here!!!!Because of education levels now compared to then, we had a much more educated immigrate coming here, thus less likely to use these services for long, not so today .It does not take a rocket scientist to understand why we limited immigration from third world countries given the entitlements they would receive here , at the expanse of their follow citizens.Now come illegal and sue the citizens of another country for these rights and force them to degrade their standard of living , their children's future standard of living and when said citizens object, call them fat lazy raciest Americans , who won't do the jobs,HMMMMMMMMMM Who do you think built this country? Not illegal aliens from Latin America but they sure like to think so !!!!LOLOLOL

    LAUSD's dropout rate soars
    The Los Angeles Unified School District's dropout rate jumped about 50% in 2002-03, according to a state report Wednesday, but LAUSD officials insisted that the dramatic rise was due to changes in the way the rate is calculated and their own decision not to track students. -- More than 16,000 LAUSD high school students dropped out at some point last year.

    Sure don't find any history of this happening in our previous immigration , looks as if they don't plan on staying here ,just using what others worked hard to build!!!

    Entitlement program
    The kind of government program that provides individuals with personal financial benefits (or sometimes special government-provided goods or services) to which an indefinite (but usually rather large) number of potential beneficiaries have a legal right (enforceable in court, if necessary) whenever they meet eligibility conditions that are specified by the standing law that authorizes the program

    Chairman McKeon, Ranking Member Mink, and Other Members of the Committee:

    My name is Ron Haskins. I am a Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution in Washington, DC and a Senior Consultant at the Annie E. Casey Foundation in Baltimore. As a staff member with the Committee on Ways and Means, I had the great privilege of working on the seminal welfare reform law of 1996, often in collaboration with the distinguished members and staff of this Committee. Thus, I am especially honored to be invited to discuss the reforms and their effects with this illustrious Committee.
    In 1996, Congress and President Clinton made the most fundamental reforms in American social policy since President Johnson's War on Poverty in 1965, and arguably since President Roosevelt's New Deal in 1935. As the October 1, 2002 deadline for reauthorizing the 1996 welfare reform legislation approaches, it is an appropriate time to carefully examine the reforms and their effects, as well as to consider steps Congress should take when the legislation is reauthorized next year.

    Background and Brief History of Welfare Programs
    In 1995, on the eve of the great national debate that led to the welfare reform law of 1996, the heart of the federal welfare state for the poor comprised three entitlement programs: Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC), food stamps, and Medicaid. In the average state, these three programs guaranteed that a poor single mother with two children would receive entitlement benefits worth about $12,000 annually, $8,000 in cash and food stamps. In addition to these major welfare entitlement programs, the nation's federal and state governments offered more than 300 means-tested programs which provided benefits to individuals or families with incomes below a given level. In 1995, federal and state spending on entitlement and non-entitlement programs amounted to roughly $370 billion, up dramatically from about $40 billion in 1965. Thus, a welfare state for poor Americans was erected and continued to expand in the 60 years between 1935, when the Social Security Act established the AFDC program, and 1995, when the debate that led to the 1996 reforms began.
    The expansion of entitlement welfare and the huge increases in spending after 1965 were by no means inevitable. In fact, in his 1935 message to Congress about the Social Security Act, President Roosevelt warned that welfare could become a "narcotic" and that it could induce a "moral and spiritual despair." He pledged that the nation would eventually "quit this business" of welfare. Moreover, Roosevelt's New Deal placed a much greater emphasis on work than on welfare. Similarly, President Johnson called his War on Poverty a "hand up, not a
