Abstract

[Washington Post] The welfare rolls have shrunk to their lowest level since 1970, and the president has good reason to celebrate. Yet a close look at the number of welfare recipients who will be required to find work in the next six years suggest that it's too early for political bell-ringing and that a recession no greater than that of 1990 could swell the rolls again and make it impossible for states to meet the requirements of the new law.
