Condoleezza Rice on Welfare & Poverty

Secretary of State


Turn toward entitlement tears apart the fabric of who we

Americans have believed that you might not be able to control your circumstances but you can control your response to your circumstances.

If we do anything less, we can damage generations [with] joblessness and hopelessness and life on the government dole. If we do anything less, we will endanger our global imperatives for competitiveness. And if we do anything less, we will tear apart the fabric of who we are and cement the turn toward entitlement and grievance.
