    Rep. Ryan receives a $174,000.00 block grant from the federal government which never goes down or is unfunded. Proof positive of the effectiveness of the block grant policy. [If only the Fed would do something about that pesky inflation]. I can almost feel the love of the GOP wonks, almost.

  2. Robert Buttons says:

    We should only expect cuts to occur. Once anti-poverty programs do their jobs and get people out of poverty, those folks no longer need anti-poverty programs.

    In a rare moment of worthwhile insight Representative John Burton noted that converting Model Cities monies to Community Development Block Grants would eventually result in the money disappearing. It did. I believe that this happened in the 1970s.
