dc.descriptionPresented to the Honors Committee of Texas State University In Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements For Graduation in the Honors College, Approved May 2014.en_US
dc.description.abstractThis work investigates the past and present attitudes Americans have toward welfare and those who use such programs. The two most significant aid programs are TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) and SNAP (the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program) so these will be discussed in detail. Both of these programs have a long history and have been altered many times. The alterations are mainly due to the negative attitudes many have for government assistance. Such opinions have been maintained over several generations and are still very common today. The two main reasons for such attitudes are the misperception that welfare recipients are undeserving and racial profiling.en_US
