The Welfare system is rife with abuse. A noble aspect of American progressiveness has been used and abused by people who care not for their fellow citizens and are happy to take money and assistance that is not theirs by right. Fortunately, it looks like the US welfare system is about to get back to doing what it was intended for: taking care of those in need.
Donald Trump has struck at the very heart of this abuse. He has issued orders that will effectively cut-out two groups of people who are either not in need of Welfare and those who do not deserve it. The first group being people who have won lottery payments. The second being sexual predators.
The first group is an obvious cut. If they have money, then they have no recourse to the public purse, but the second may have opponents. The Liberal argument runs that these people may be unable to support themselves without welfare payments. Tough. If sexual predators happen to starve to death or have to commit a food robbery (for which they can get caught and imprisoned) then all the better for wider society.
Add this to the new rulings that will allow states to administer drug tests to welfare recipients and it would seem that Trump is on the right track.
Ever drive through the most impoverished part of your city and think to yourself “hey, might as well throw my debit card out the window?” You’re certainly not alone.
Two of the cuts he’s making include no longer providing SNAP benefits to sexual predators or lottery winners.
Suit up, shut up, and get to work. Hardworking, diligent citizens will no longer serve as your city’s Santa Clause. Donald Trump’s efforts to reduce funding for SNAP will serve a purpose, and shows leeches their behavior will no longer be tolerated. It’s about time the United States had a president who takes pride in it’s advantageous working class.
In Donald Trump’s America, you’re expected to work for what you have. The days of depending on your neighbor’s paychecks are coming to an end. Boundaries are being set, and the hard work of decent, persevering people will be protected.
Trump will harness this drive, rather than dismiss it. He will undue the preemptive sense of entitlement Barack Obama once nurtured.
