Trump Prepares 2019 Food Stamp Change – Directly Affects Welfare Slugs In 43 States
By Mick Farthing|July 23, 2019

Democrats thought Donald was done – he’s just getting started!

Thanks to President Trump, the U.S. economy is on fire like never before. Jobs are coming back and wages are on the rise.

Companies are competing to keep Americans workers. In fact, there are more open jobs than people looking for work!

But as good as things are, Trump wants them even better. The economy can only thrive when people are jumping in and getting back to work.

But there’s one program that keeps people poor and out of the workforce. A program that also costs the taxpayers billions a year.

And Trump is about to pull the plug on this program—for millions.

From Fox News:

The Trump administration is set to propose a rule Tuesday that would cut about 3.1 million Americans from the food-stamp program in an effort to save taxpayers about $2.5 billion a year, reports said…

…residents in 43 states who receive help from Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, or TANF, automatically enroll in the food-stamp program… The USDA intends to review these TANF cases to see if participants qualify for the program.

Just like that, Trump is saving Americans $2.5 billion!

You might have been surprised to know that recipients of TANF automatically were enrolled in the food stamp program. Even if they didn’t need it!

That’s by design. Democrats like to hand out free government goodies like Halloween treats! They want as many people poor and dependent on the government as possible.

We all know government Welfare doesn’t lift people out of poverty. In fact, it keeps them poor, because to keeping earning stuff like food stamps you have to earn less.

The only way to get people off that carousel is to cut benefits.

President Trump wants Americans free to pursue their dreams. That means getting off the government teat and working for a living.

When a person has a good, well-paying job, they get a sense of dignity and accomplishment. Plus, they earn WAY more than what food stamps can provide.

All that Trump wants to do is require the USDA to just make sure participants of TANF actually need food stamps. Instead of just handing them out like lollipops at the doctor’s office.

Why waste tax dollars when we don’t need to? That is what a responsible leader does—he makes sure our government spending is in check.

Already Democrats are angry. But hey, if they got their way, their policies would make us broke, sick, and desperate for more government aid.

Liberals want as many Americans stuck on food stamps so they can raise taxes, expand the size of the government, and get re-elected.

But Trump is putting a stop to all that. And saving you money in the process.

SHARE to thank Trump for cutting off taxpayer handouts to freeloaders!
