AbstractAs Congress cuts federal spending for public income transfers, the impact on children will become an important public issue. How much poorer will children become as a result? How will the current safety net be adversely affected? To shed light on these questions, this article presents findings from a study that investigated the effectiveness of the current safety net for poor children compared with poor adults and poor elderly people. It found that income transfers are providing the safety net most effectively for elderly people, less effectively for children, and least effectively for adults.
