WASHINGTON – California Democrats are trying to reverse a decades-old state law that bars families from getting extra welfare money for having an additional child, describing the law as “sexist” and “classist” — despite concerns that repealing it could compound the state’s money woes.
The so-called “welfare queen” law was passed two decades ago during the heyday of welfare reform. At the time, Democrats were in charge of the state legislature and Republican Pete Wilson was governor.
Today, Democrats are still in charge, but the base of support for the law is fading.
