Author Info

A CPA and entrepreneur, Bob Pfeiffer retired early to pursue his passion of working with the poor. To understand why the government private think tanks has never been able get a foothold on poverty and homelessness, Pfeiffer applied his analytical skills so he could wade through heavy-handed government bureaucracy and make the labyrinthine $462 billion welfare system understandable to everyone.  Hence, his informational website Federalsafetynet.com was born in January,   2011. The site draws more than 500 visitors a day, a cross-section of Americans including students, lawyers, and most importantly, ordinary hard-working Americans hungry for plain English explanations free of legalize and heavy-handed government jargon.
