Paul L. Poirot

In the United States, at least, the Federal welfare state is primarily a development of the twentieth century. Governmental welfare measures, if any, before World War I were handled largely at the local level; there had been no substantial use of Federal funds to buy votes, no reason for states to modify their voting laws and practices to gain special privileges in Washington.
