IT'S ONE OF THE MANY EARLY INTERVENTION PROGRAMS THAT
LISA FURSETH AT COMMUNITY ACTION SAYS IS HELPING CHANGE
AND WHY SHE THINKS A NEW POVERTY PLAN CHANGING HOW
SERVICES GET TO THOSE IN NEED.
MAY BE A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.

ROLLED OUT AT THE AMERICAN ENTERPRISE INSTITUTE IN
TO SPEND MONEY NOT ONLY AT STATE AGENCIES.
BUT NON-PROFIT GROUPS LIKE COMMUNITY ACTION.
So what we need to do is coordinate assistance to
families in need.
Get the public and private sector working together.
That's how we can smooth the transition from assistance
RYAN'S PLAN IS SEEN BY SOME AS A POSSIBLE POLICY PRECURSOR
TO A PRESIDENTIAL RUN...
NAT FROM CLASS?
BUT AS THE SERVICE WORK CONTINUES IN ROCK COUNTY...
FURSETH SAYS THE MOTIVATION DOESN'T MATTER.
if something happens to support the people who are
living in poverty it doesnt matter what the motivation
is ;23 all that matters is they get the help and resources
they need to move their lives forward, that is the
only thing i care about
ryan is likely to talk more about his plan across
the country as he goes on a book tour next month,
but we can't say what the future of the plan would
be in congress, in beloit, jessica arp wisc news three
DEMOCRATIC MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE.
INCLUDING CONGRESSMAN MARK POCAN.
ARE SKEPTICAL OF THE PLAN...
