In this photo taken Aug. 8, 2012, Republican presidential candidate, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney campaigns in Des Moines, Iowa. Welfare is causing a ruckus in the presidential campaign, but the program is a shadow of its old self in the 1970s, when Ronald Reagan used the image of “welfare queens” against government poverty programs promoted by liberals.
