I picked up the newspaper last weekend and saw on the front page under the headline, "New Welfare Era Dawning," two related stories. The first was about welfare reform. Florida's welfare to-work bill was just passed by the State Legislature. The bill will require the 170,000 parents on Florida's welfare rolls to find jobs, and will limit, to four years, the time that anyone can receive medical benefits, subsidies for children, and other dependency-creating luxuries so generously supplied by the state over the years.
