My Brother's Keeper
(America's War on Poverty series)

60 minutes
HC110 .P63 M91 1995

The Nixon Administration and the National Welfare Rights Organization (NWRO), in a surprising partnership, bring the nation to the brink of overhauling the federal social security system and replacing welfare with a guaranteed income for all citizens. When it appears the guaranteed income will be quite low, the NWRO joins an alliance of conservatives and liberals to defeat the proposed legislation. It is an American story that gets to the heart of the country's conflicting notions about the deserving and undeserving poor.
