If the very ample safety net worked, there wouldnt be the very poor.
I am curious, what you mean by worked?
The Food Stamp and other programs are working exactly as they were designed -- to build a voter base for the Rats. The programs were designed to destroy to trap and destroy the futures of millions of poor.
If anyone thinks these programs were designed to show compassionate help for the downtrodden, then they need a serious reading of history.

...and imprison them in housing projects far from the elite liberals who keep them there with our tax money.

(America needs Gingrich in 2012 about as much as England needed Churchill in 1940!)
These programs do indeed build a democrat voting base, but the plight of the desperately poor, hopelessly entangled and trapped in so-called the “safety net” really is tragic. It barely keeps body and soul together, and there is little escape from it these days because it is so difficult to find work.

I hope people also consider that Santorum is on record as voting to RAISE the national minimum wage, and voting to PREVENT Congress from making cuts in the foodstamp program.
GODSPEED NEWT GINGRICH
