The worry about losing welfare

On Tuesday Dec. 21, the D.C. Council will vote on a proposal that would limit residents from receiving cash payments after five years on the District's welfare program, called Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF). Diane Greenfield, who has five children between the ages of three months and six years old, has been receiving welfare payments on and off for seven years. (Whitney Shefte/The Washington Post)
