Mary L.G. Theroux | Childhood Poverty, Government Failures, and the Need for Economic Liberty
Recorded: Thursday, March 26, 2015

Independent Institute Senior Vice President Mary L. G. Theroux testified before the California State Senate's Budget Subcommittee on Health and Human Services, at the request of State Senator Jeff Stone. The witnesses spoke about California's Maximum Family Grant rule for families on welfare. The rule caps grants and does not increase grant money to mothers on welfare when they have more children. Mary testified about the causes of poverty and of the need for other, non-government options for poor families. She introduced ideas for helping the poor through private resources and organizations, instead of government agencies where families and women often find themselves trapped in a cycle of poverty.
