|English term or phrase: welfare state|
|The sentence is: "America, born as a free country, has been transfigured into a welfare state..." Everywhere I've looked up says "estado de bem-estar" but I'm sure the author refers to a country where the government controls people's lives. Is there a term for this in (Brazilian)Portuguese?|
A traduçao oficial da Uniao Europeia é estado-providência.
