Former President Barack Obama created a whole generation of “freeloading welfare abusers” because of his policies that made welfare benefits easily obtainable, a not just for American citizens, but for illegal immigrants as well.
President Donald Trump however, has made it his mission to cut back on these welfare programs.
The main reason behind welfare is to aid people who are in need, and help them get back on track with their lives, not to fund them infinitely. But as it appears, many people are taking that for granted, abusing welfare to maintain their idle lifestyle. During the past few years the number of recipients has only increased, causing many financial issues in the country.
Ever since President Trump was elected, he has been attempting to change that, by introducing new programs that would cut back on welfare programs .
Naturally, the left welfare recipients haven’t been able to stop complaining about it. And now, they really won’t be happy to hear what the state of West Virginia has voted to do.
As a show of support, legislators of West Virginia have approved a bill that would force welfare recipients to work at least twenty hours per week if they want to continue to receive the benefits.
According to a report from Breitbart: “The state Senate voted 27-6 to require West Virginia residents, ages 18-49 who are not disabled, pregnant, or military veterans and do not have dependent children, to work a minimum of 20 hours per week to receive food stamp benefits through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
The bill already passed the West Virginia House in a 78-19 vote. Forty-six of the 55 counties in West Virginia had waivers that would exempt them from having to comply with federal guidelines mandating that able-bodied adults without dependent children have to work or volunteer to receive benefits.”
The report continues to say that the Federal law orders the work requirements to be implemented in the entire nation, however as Breitbart reveals, it permits states “to obtain waivers for individual counties if their 12-month average unemployment rate goes above 10 percent, or if the 24-month average unemployment rate is 20 percent more than the national average.”
This was originally introduced by the administration of former President Bill Clnton back in 1996. Many States have been attempting to implement work requirements for people who receive benefits, for a long time, but the process was stalled as a result of an economic stimulus that the Obama administration put in place back in 2009, as a response to the 2008 recession.
As soon as the economy was recovered, states like Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, and North Carolina “’phased in’ the work requirements by county, and all have experienced significant decreases in SNAP enrollment.”
It is normal for people to work in order to earn their money and provide for their families, so why should some people have the privilege to have this handed to them just like that?
This is brought about by the the global elite whose interest is to destroy our economy, so they can have the complete control over the people in this country.
Luckily, President Trump came right on time, to salvage that.
