Trump tees up welfare reform

Republicans searching for their next major task after tax reform may have found their answer, and it's not infrastructure.

Over the past few weeks, President Trump has been talking up reform of anti-poverty programs, and House leaders have begun preliminary talks with his administration on what they could accomplish through a welfare overhaul, aides say. The White House, meanwhile, is preparing an administrative reordering of the welfare system regardless of whether congressional Republicans act.

In 2016, House Speaker Paul Ryan unveiled an anti-poverty plan for Republicans to run on. It emphasized work requirements and increased the role of state and local governments in administering benefits.

“Last year, Ways and Means Republicans laid out our vision for reforming our nation’s welfare system so Americans can move off of welfare and successfully into the workforce, and we are committed to working with President Trump to turn our vision into a reality,” said Texas Rep. Kevin Brady, chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, which is responsible for most welfare programs.

You mean like when Bill Clinton passed welfare reform and replaced welfare with what was called "workfare"?  Part of Obama's CHANGE was to change the definition of "work" to include "looking for a job on your cellphone (free Obamaphone)  This promotes Slothery as a vocation!

There you go with that Obamaphone lie again.  Take abput Fake news.  As long as you go along with fake news, you will be lost.

BTW Obama gave states more flexibility because Utah, under Republican Gov. Gary Herbert, was one of five states to ask the federal government for more flexibility in determining work participation; another was Republican-led Nevada.

It is still a lie.  Just because a lady on the street says it, does not make it true.

Despite new cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Jason Greenslate - the 'food stamp surfer' who shot to infamy last year for proudly declaring he eats lobster and sushi and won't get a job - continues to get food stamps.
And, what's more, the 29-year-old guitarist says his band, Ratt Life, is on its way to making millions.
Fox News again profiled the mooching muso this week and showed him driving a Cadillac Escalade and going to stip clubs, while still collecting $200 each month in food stamps.
'It looks like a good time, man,' Greenslate told the network.   Roll Eyes
