Back to Work! President Trump Reinstates Work Requirements For Welfare

President Trump is back at it. He wants welfare leeches back to work. President Trump is making work requirements for welfare recipients.

Per Washington Times:

The Trump administration moved Wednesday to reimpose work requirements for Americans on welfare, revoking an Obama-era policy that had urged states to apply for waivers exempting the poor from having to show they were either getting job training or looking for work.

Requiring work was a key part of the 1996 welfare reform law enacted by a GOP-led Congress and signed by then-President Bill Clinton, and Mr. Trump’s move restores the law as written.

“The waiver option offered by the Obama administration is being replaced today by an expectation that work should always be encouraged as a condition for receiving welfare,” said Steven Wagner, the Health and Human Services Department’s acting assistant secretary for children and families.

Though the left will go nuts, this is a very logical move. Mississippi and Main have already done this and the results were great. By incentivizing getting off welfare, the people usually do it. That’s how things work when you offer incentives.

When people are required to work, they do just that. When people know they can have everything given to them, they take that.

Very strong move by President Trump.
