Good effort, Doc. But, the intention of welfare wasn't to marginalize the role of the father. So you're being more than a little disingenuous with your implication that the intent of liberals and progressives was to do so.

Further, are you aware that welfare rolls have been greatly reduced by the reforms started under Presdent Clinton? Why didn't this result in a corresponding decrease in single mother households?
