This paper examines the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act of 1996 in the light of Christian principles and finds that it fails to live up to Christian values.
From the Paper:"The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act of is not entirely consistent with Christian social ethics. As Thompson points out, the reformers of our original welfare system had a variety of motives and objectives, many of which had nothing to do with the well-being of welfare recipients. Although the premise that "Welfare should be a second chance, not a way of life" is laudable, the Act encumbered poor people with time limits and other restrictions that they must meet or else lose their benefits."
