In Focus: Commissioner Thomas C. Keith

How much is a child in South Carolina worth?

That’s the question that Commissioner Thomas C. Keith asked in his Op-Ed in Friday’s The State newspaper.

And, it’s likely you’re not going to like the answer – LESS THAN CONNECTICUT.  A LOT LESS.

In Connecticut, each child in poverty is allocated $1,052 a year via TANF, whereas in South Carolina that same program allocates only $179 a year per child.

And in his Op-Ed, Mr. Keith is urging Congress to do the right thing, fund each child living in poverty according to poverty level, not according to “state” advantages.

Good job Commissioner Keith!
