The reforms started. The Trump administration continues to slash lazy government.
That is maybe felt the most in entitlement programs. Government handouts generate a massive burden on the taxpayer. They also allow capable Americans to sit around and not work.
States are allowed to give out food stamps to anyone. People who should be working get a free ride. And everything of that is thank to the former president Obama. The people not even look for a job.
According to our source, American Conservative Herald, as the economy continues to boom, workers are needed. New jobs are opening up every day and unemployment is dropping constantly. Every day there is less and less reasons to allow people to collect food stamps who refuse to work. Of course, Trump is making sure that’s the case. Fox News reported that President Trump’s proposed budget demonstrates his commitment to making this a reality by making changes to the way the food stamp program (officially called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) is administered, closing bureaucratic loopholes that accelerated the growth in food stamp caseloads.
We have a situation where federal law requires childless, able-bodied adults to work, volunteer or train at least 20 hours per week to receive food stamps. Also, there are more than 1,300 “work-free” counties, cities, and other areas where able-bodied adults, 18-49 years old, with no kids, get a completely free ride while on food stamps. But, there are no work requirements!
That is because Obama-era bureaucrats mounted a campaign allowing states to request waivers to opt out of the work requirement. In fact, there are an estimated 6 million jobs opening across the country. There are zero reasons a person on food stamps can’t at least look for work.
States even provide job training programs to help people. However, there are still people who refuse to meet these basic requirements. States, like California and Michigan, keep seeking waivers to these rules.
Fortunately, those days are rapidly ending. The federal government will start requiring accountability from these states. In the end, the waivers will end and more people will go back to work.
