Name change: Pennsylvania drops 'welfare' from Welfare Dept. to avoid stigma

The Department of Welfare has dropped "welfare" from its moniker because the term welfare offends the many millions who receive welfare and the bureaucrats who administer the billions of dollars in welfare payments. So from now on, it's the Department of Human Services, which is still the place to go for welfare.By the way, Pennsylvania spends about $11 billion annually on welfare programs.

Pennsylvania human services agency gets new name - WHTM Harrisburg, Pa.
