This is precisely why anyone who had been following GWB's career before 2000 knew that there was nothing "compassionate" about his conservatism: Texas. at his direction, negotiated a lower Family Income threshold for CHiPS (150% of the poverty line i/o 200%, iirc) not specifically because the number of children would cost anything, but because once you actually let people know they are eligible for aid, they (in this case, their families) may actually dare to accept it.

The great secret of the Large Red States isn't their voter suppression or redistricting efforts; it's their explicit determination to make it more difficult for their citizens to develop and thrive. Creating an environment where the only successful "entrepreneurs" are Crony Capitalists is a feature, not a bug.
