Welfare reform is has been neglected by the government for years, but now that Trump is in the White House and Republicans have control of congress, the welfare system is going to get a kick in the pants!
According to Right Wing News, the President is about to sign legislation that would increase drug testing for people receiving government assistance. Which seems very logical unless you’re a liberal democrat who wants people to be slaves to the system and mindless drones to vote blue come election time.
Right Wing News reports that during the Obama administration, states were not allowed to drug test welfare applicants. The new law would change all that, and Trump is reportedly on board.
The Conservative Tribune weighed in, saying this:
Now states will have the freedom to drug-test individuals before they start shelling out taxpayer money to people. This will help ensure that people receiving welfare benefits won’t use taxpayer money to buy drugs.
It was not immediately clear when Trump would sign the bill into law, but the White House has indicated that Trump will indeed sign it.
Republicans have cheered this bill as a victory for states’ rights, while Democrats have resorted to their old talking point of claiming that Republicans are targeting the poor.
That sounds like a much better plan than giving drug addicts money for drugs! But liberals will never let go of their desire to slander conservatives as uncaring elitists. (Hint: It’s the other way around…)
The welfare system has become a disaster. It’s intention was to help people who were down on their luck, to support people who were having trouble finding work or paying bills and buying food. It was not meant to become a career path for millions of Americans. It was not meant to encourage people not to work.
And that’s what our broken welfare system does. It keeps people down instead of helping them while they build themselves up. If a mother gets a part-time job to get some money coming in and build her resume and contacts, she’ll get her benefits taken away immediately. How is that helping anyone?
This is the first step in the the fight to fix the welfare system. Enabling the addicted is unacceptable!
