George W. Bush

In 2003, President Bush proposed an extension of the Welfare Reform Act with added requirements. Under the plan, recipients would be required to work 40 hours per week, the average funding for a family on public assistance would be increased, and state and local governments would consolidate food stamps, housing, and education programs. While welfare rolls have decreased drastically in recent years in New York City, there are signs that the poor are not finding jobs or the help they need. Homelessness in New York City is at a record high. The number of single mothers who are unemployed has risen and their average hourly pay has decreased since 2000, according to one report.

He opposes the Bush administration's tougher work requirements for welfare recipients. He wants to build affordable housing to help the homeless.
