Where Are The Fathers

October 6, 2021

Whenever needy families are pictured on the news there is something frequently missing in these pictures and that is fathers. You usually see mothers with children or children alone. Where are the fathers? But, even more important, where are the questions from the press about the absence of fathers? I contend that it must be simply politically incorrect to ask these questions. Why? Revealing these inequities, would reveal the failure of our welfare system which incentivizes fathers to leave their families so the family can receive larger welfare benefits. Also, there is insufficient pressure on these fathers to act responsibly. This problem is not new; Senator Moynihan’s study over 40 years ago was clear about this. Why don’t we change our policies?
