They have made a mess designing programs that get more difficult to unscramble than a dozen eggs, and it is costing all of us as taxpayers, several hundred million dollars IIII past few years that escalating Construction costs and financing problems are rapidly putting the price of owning a home out of reach for a very large percentage of the American people. .......... - Those same 'inaneial factors 3robtbly ac- count for part ,[f the boom in tlt/t m o b i l e home living among ' young families li and the middle ]l|l grnp -- and especially among the retired population, which is getting bigger all the time. The simple fact is that, count- ing the cost of furnishings, a conventionl home costs twice as much as a mobile home of the same size and luxury (and the mobile home generally has built-in features the usual home lacks). The initial savings, plus low-cost rentals in fine mobile home parks and the need for less financing, makes owning a inobile home the ideal answer for many who could not other- wise afford a home of their own.

The examples are legion. One woman in an Eastern city was reported to be collecting $426 a month, tax-ree, from five or more benefit program. The average wage of an employed woman in the same neigh,bor- hood is $371. In tddition to killing incentiVe, the present welfare hodgepodge actually make t impo'ssb.le r ma,ny of its beneficiaries to work for a living if they have any regard for the well-being of their families. If a woman receiving Aid to Families with Dependent Children gets a Job. the bene- fits she receives drop to 67 per- cent. The price of food stamps goes up a,s earnings rise, and if the family lives in subsidized housing the rent increases also. Representative Oriffiths point, s out, "....As a result the family's total income may increase by only a few cents per dollar earned."
