65% Of Children Currently Live On Federal Aid

A study conducted by the Census Bureau reports that as of the fall of 2011 65% of households with children receive some type of federal aid. CNS News shared alarming findings from this study – “’Almost two-thirds (65 percent) of children,’ said the Census Bureau, ‘lived in households that participated in at least one or more of the following government aid programs: Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), Medicaid, and the National School Lunch Program.’”
