Government causes poverty: Massive welfare spending in San Antonio makes people less educated, more desperate

For the past 5 years, the federal government has poured $54 million in government aid into an impoverished neighborhood in San Antonio, Texas.

The welfare program has apparently may have set the tiny, 3.5 square mile neighborhood back. The San Antonio Express reports more high school graduates (79.4%) require remedial courses to enter college today than before the grant infusion (77.9%).

It appears that income and wealth levels in the government-welfare-gorged neighborhood are no better now than when the U.S. government launched the program.
