In 1966, the Social Security Administration calculated that a family of four needed an income of $3,355 a year to be above the line of poverty.

1966年的时候社会安全管理机构计算出一个四口之家需要每年3355美元的收入才能达到贫困线之上。

 And in 1977, the average poverty line of the country was slightly more than $6,200 annual income for a non-farm family of four.

1977年的时候,对于一个没有农田的四口之家来说这个国家的平均贫困线是每年收入要稍高于6200美元。

According to the Social Security Act, families of that size below poverty line are eligible to receive benefits from the special welfare program.

根据社会安全行动,低于贫困线的四口之家是有资格接受特别福利项目的。

The average weekly payment of benefits now is equivalent to 36 percent of the worker‘s normal wage.

每周支付这个福利项目的钱是等同于36%的一般工人的工资。

 And the number of people who receive government benefits is increasing.

并且,接受政府优惠的人数正在提升。

In 1973, social insurance payments by governments, mainly to old age pensioners and people who had lost their jobs or were off work through illness, amounted to $86,000 million.

1973年的时候,主要对于老龄领资助金者或者说是失业人员,或者是说因为疾病辞去工作的人的社会保障项目,政府已经支付了总值8600亿美元了。

Those not fully qualified for insurance payments received $29,000 million in public aid.

这些不是完全符合保险支付的人在公共资助中获得了2900亿美元。

But problems still exist.

但还是有问题存在。

Many people are not reached by the anti-poverty program, because local authorities and agencies do not want to play their part or do not gave the resources to do so.

很多人都没因反贫困项目成功,因为当地机构还有代理人没有做他们该做的事,或者所没有让资源利用起来。

 Some poor people will not accept help for various reasons.

有些人因为各种各样的理由不接受帮助。

Of course, there are some more important factors which lie in the structure of the society, but I don’t consider it necessary to dig into them here.

当然,在社会生活结构中有很多特别重要的因素,但是我认为没必要深究他们。

 Yet we will perhaps agree that social welfare programs have solved to some extent the problems of feeding, clothing and housing those below the poverty line.

然而 我们有可能会相信,社会福利项目已经某种程度上解决了低于贫线的人们的衣食住的问题。

 On the whole, it perhaps might be said that American people are living a better life than people in most other countries.

总之,有可能会说美国人民正生活在一个比其他地方更好的国家。
