  1. Welfare “reform” is another good example because it removed all requirements that states provide the poorest families with any cash assistance. Instead, each state was given substantial freedom to design its own programs and to empower local jurisdictions to exercise that freedom on behalf of the state. At least in Maryland, one result was that counties with the highest percentages of African-American residents also provided the fewest resources to families in poverty.
