The collectivists on college campuses are not going to like this one bit…
But then, who cares what socialists think?
They just want wealth redistribution.
With this new E.O., they’re not going to be able to pick your pocket so easily.
President signed an Executive Order on Tuesday aimed at strengthening work requirements for welfare recipients.
“The Federal Government should do everything within its authority to empower individuals by providing opportunities for work, including by investing in Federal programs that are effective at moving people into the workforce and out of poverty,” the executive order states.
The new requirements would apply to those who are able to work, according to the memo.
Instead of listing which agencies would be affected, President Trump’s order calls on the heads of the departments of Treasury, Agriculture, Commerce, Labor, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Transportation and Education to review public assistance programs within their agencies.
Those department heads are expected to submit a report within 90 days with a list of recommended changes to achieve Trump’s goals, according to the executive order.
The order also says the federal government will streamline services, review existing services and consolidate or eliminate programs that are ineffective or overlap in services.
That. Is. Fantastic.
You know that the President is going to take heat for this one because it’s probably not ‘compassionate’ or ‘racist’ or something.
Meanwhile, actual working taxpayers are relieved to see that the President is bringing the idea that welfare is a ‘hand up’ and not a ‘hand out’ to those that need some short-term assistance to get back on their feet.
The Department of Health and Human Services’ Administration for Children and Families embraced the executive order and said it will allow the agency to take “aggressive action” toward enforcing work requirements.
“Strengthening work requirements for welfare recipients is a critical element of moving welfare recipients from dependency to self-sufficiency,” Steven Wagner, the acting assistant secretary for the organization, said in a statement.

If you can work, then you should work.
That’s what the rest of us do.
And it sure isn’t fair to take our tax dollars and hand them over to those able-bodied people that would rather sit home and collect a welfare check.
It’s actually the more compassionate thing to do.
This is America, and it was built on self-sufficiency not dependence on the government.
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
Gift giving just got a whole lot easier.
What’s not to like?
They get a gift, and you get to crow about just how good Trump’s first year has been.
It’s win-win, right?
