ABSTRACT
This article comments on the State of the Union Address of U.S. President Gerald Ford in 1976. The speech given by Ford focuses on the major changes in government spending and social welfare programs. According to the President, the total amount of social welfare spending for 1975 is $286.5 billion. In this regard, the author argues that the government should first assess the economic conditions of the nation before implementing reforms. Thus, the claims of the official regarding the economic status of the country triggered criticisms against his administration.
