Trump says welfare reform is up after taxes


Trump says welfare reform is up after taxes. by Joseph Lawler. The next big White House initiative after
passing tax legislation will be “welfare reform,” President Trump said Monday. “We�re looking very strongly at welfare
reform, and that�ll all take place right after taxes, very soon, very shortly after
taxes,” Trump said in brief comments at the White House. The president said the White House would be
submitting plans for initiatives on welfare as well as healthcare and infrastructure after
the tax push. Welfare reform is “desperately needed in our
country,” he said. As for the timing, Trump said he hoped that
tax legislation would reach his desk by Christmas. That would be a “great big, beautiful Christmas
present,” he quipped. Last week, the House passed the Tax Cuts and
Jobs Act supported by Trump, and the Senate advanced its version of the bill through committee. In its fiscal 2018 budget, the White House
proposed adding work requirements to a range of government programs, including the food
stamp program, as a form of welfare reform. Budget Director Mick Mulvaney also offered
spending reforms to Social Security disability under the same logic. The White House budget proposal also included
tighter eligibility requirements for low-income tax credits as a form of welfare reform. The tax legislation could advance that goal. The House version of the bill, for instance,
would require taxpayers claiming child tax credits to provide Social Security numbers,
which isn’t required currently. While fiscal conservatives have said that
such eligibility requirements would improve the integrity of low-income tax credits, critics
argue that they would prevent mostly needy families from receiving benefits.

    Housing inspections
    Disability fraud agents
    Entire FAMILIES in my area are on disability and itโ€™s a family tradition to get a check for life. Then they do work for cash which I refuse to work any!!!!

  3. I think if there was an age limit on welfare and food stamps, more young adults would keep their legs crossed, or having more kids does not get you more welfare funds.

  4. Welfare and EBT cards:
    Require a physical and random drug tests.
    If physically fit help them get a job like grown up people do( I don't give a crap about the fifth sign pain b.s. running amok).
    If they fail a random drug test cut them off and take their kids. If your not gonna act like a grown man or woman then we should make sure the children are taken care of . I'm in favor of repeat offenders being sterilized .

  5. I would be happy to donate my time to verify credentials supplied to overworked welfare officials for persons wanting to obtain welfare…Promise most documents are forged, and not worth the paper written on.

  6. I really wish he would eliminate welfare food stamps.doesnt matter that people work they just work the minimum to still be able to collect.just end it all together I'm sick of working overtime to pay for other people while they work four hours a day five days a week
