Trump strengthens work requirements for welfare


IPHONE. STUART: PRETTY GOOD STUFF FOR APPLE, NICOLE. WE WILL TAKE IT. PRESIDENT TRUMP DID SIGN EXECUTIVE ORDER THAT AIMS TO STRENGTHEN WORK REQUIREMENTS TO PUBLIC ASSISTANCE AND OTHER WELFARE PROGRAMS, ALL RISE THE JUDGE IS HERE. NOW, FIRST OF ALL, THIS LOOKS LIKE A PART OF THE TRUMP AGENDA WHICH WILL HAPPEN. THE PRESIDENT SIGNING EXECUTIVE ORDER, THERE’S NOTHING UNCONSTITUTIONAL ABOUT EXECUTIVE ORDER.>>I HAVE TO READ THE EXECUTIVE ORDER. I THINK THE EXECUTIVE ORDER IS GOING TO REGULATE PEOPLE THAT THE GOVERNMENT DOES BUSINESS WITH. SO YES, THE PRESIDENT CAN DO THAT BUT IT WOULD TAKE CONGRESSIONAL LEGISLATION TO ACHIEVE EXACTLY WHAT HE WANTS AND HE OUGHT TO DO WITH MAJORITY IN THE CONGRESS. WHAT HE WANTS IS TO PAIR A WORK REQUIREMENT WITH THE RECEIPT OF GOVERNMENT WELFARE OR THE DEMONSTRATION OF AN ATTEMPT TO OBTAIN WORK WITH THE RECEIPT OF GOVERNMENT WELFARE, NOT A WORD THAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO USE ANYMORE, TRANSFER PAYMENTS. STUART: THE PRESIDENT IS REFORMING WELFARE.>>YES.>>STUART: BY REQUIRING WORK REQUIREMENTS, NOT CUTTING AMOUNT YOU GET?>>HE HAS WIGGLE ROOM. THERE ARE CERTAIN AREAS WHERE HE CAN ACTUALLY IMPOSE OBLIGATIONS ON THE RECIPIENT EVEN THOUGH THE CONSTITUTION SAYS ONLY THE CONGRESS CAN WRITE LAWS, THE CONGRESS HAS DELEGATED A LITTLE BIT OF WIGGLE ROOM TO MAKE DELIVERY OF CERTAIN GOVERNMENT BENEFITS A LITTLE BIT EASIER OR MORE CHALLENGING BUT BEYOND THAT, WILL TAKE CONGRESS TO DO IT. STUART: EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO TAKE AWAY OR LIMIT ANY PROGRAM ONCE INSTALLED.>>OH, MY GOODNESS. ABSOLUTELY. NOTHING MORE PERMANENT THAN A TEMPORARY GOVERNMENT PROGRAM. [LAUGHTER]>>RENT CONTROL IN NEW YORK CITY, STARTED IN 1943. STUART: STILL GOT IT, DOESN’T ABSOLUTELY WORK?>>IT DOESN’T. THEY LEARN THAT THE PIE IS THERE. STUART: EASY TO EXPAND AN EASY PROGRAM. PRESIDENT OBAMA VASTLY EXPANDED FOOD STAMPS TO THE POINT WHERE 50 MILLION AMERICANS WERE GETTING.>>YES. PRESIDENT TRUMP CAN’T CONTRACT THAT BUT CAN IMPOSE OBLIGATIONS TO SEEK WORK AS CONDITION OF

  1. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE TO OUR COUNTRY AND COMMITMENT TO OUR FAMILIES MR.PRESIDENT 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦🇺🇸
    95% APPROVAL RATING BY PATRIOT AMERICAN'S AND RISING 🇺🇸👨‍👩‍👧‍👦🇺🇸👨‍👩‍👧‍👦🇺🇸👨‍👩‍👧‍👦🇺🇸👨‍👩‍👧‍👦🇺🇸

  2. The only problem with the obligation to Seek work is that when they go to apply they intentionally dress in a fashion that no employer is going want knowing that they won’t get the job. Let them clean up trash on the highway or in the parks or anything that will keep them busy doing something that benefits the community they live in.

  3. Whole genetic lines would have died out without welfare….now we have an overabundance of those people predisposed to sit around and not better the nation….THIS KIND OF STUFF KILLS NATIONS

  4. If they want to receive welfare without having to work then they should not be allowed to vote and they have to live behind a wall away from civilized society.

  5. Make all every able body apply for work. Because this will not effect those signal with children. Will not effect if only one parent is working. I say this because I work, pay my taxes, married with kids. I do not receive any welfare. I watch people that receive welfare, in my area, go on vacation every year, pay no bills, get a free cell phone, drive newer cars. Because of the benifets that they receive from the goverment.

  6. Make them work!! Make their children work!! Test them for drug use!! Test everyone for drug use!!
    Test Trump for cocaine!!

  7. The war on the poor continues. Make you work unpaid for benefits you already paid for as a taxpayer… FUCK YOU ONE AND ALL!

  8. My step-sister receives welfare because she has a brain injury….dose she have to get off her lazy ass and get a job too? Welfare is a fraction of a fraction of our government dollars. Again, propaganda from the GOP. BTW most welfare recipients are single white woman an children. I remember Jesus demanding work from starving people. Right-wing “Christians”:::my ass. Jesus was literally a bleeding heart liberal/progressive!

  9. They have to show they have tried to get a job if a person receives unemployment?  Correct?  So why should other welfare programs be any different?

  10. God hates republicans and Donald Trump it's about time lazy Republicans went to work there's a lot of farm work at there get to work

  11. Here comes the Obama Bin-Ladin judges pushing the new Orwellian plantation agenda. Don't wanna make da fella's work fo dat welfare phone!

  12. Suddenly, they are all concerned about constitutional correctness!! WHERE WERE THEY WHEN, CON MAN OBAMA DESTROYED SAID CONSTITUTION ??????????? Doing for 8 long years whatever he pleased with his executive orders ???????????????

  13. The expansion of food stamps was a compromise for removing regulations on food prices. The price of food has gone up, but wages didn't go up as much. PS Next the GOP will complain that people who work over 60 hrs per week to survive the cuts in assistance are neglecting their children. Go figure..

  14. They should get rid of social security too… Why should i work to pay your medical bills for years of drinking and smoking and drugging? Should have worked better jobs and saved money..

  15. Most people who recieve welfare are apart of the working poor, this isn't going to solve anything….fucking idiots.

  16. This is a non starter. Trump is almost as desperate as the welfare recipients. Congress won’t buy it. His powers are too limited.

  17. How silly. Clinton 1996 Welfare Reform Act already has these requirements in place. Also, welfare (food stamps) is only 4% of the national budget. It's mere peanuts. Majority of folks on welfare are single moms, small children, the disabled, some segments of the elderly, military vets, etc. Obama didn't vastly increase welfare. The GWB/Cheney recession era of 2005-2008 caused a massive increase in welfare along with the baby boomer retirement wave which began in 2009 and continues till this very day.

  18. SO many Here, ready to starve kids and their mothers to death if trace of drugs found ! Do not have a clue !!
    Woman abandoned by husband with 2 small kids, can not work at $14 per hr job and afford day care for the kids per week.
    Much less rent, food, electricity, etc. Why don't you all ….just vote to kill them on sight !!

  19. I agree with trump on this smokin weed or tv watching is not a job that us tax payers need to pay for it’s just stupid

  20. …cut them all off, they can live in FEMA camps if they can't /won't work, work there.. very dif situation when someone worked their whole lives, 30+ yrs paid into the system and need help…If u have young kids, your granny can watch them while u work..u figure it out, or go to FEMA Camps…

  21. Lol "it dosnt work" says the anchor man making 10 million a year…..its always people who make like $800,000 a month who want poor mothers families to die of hunger becuase $300 in snap benifits dosnt work says the man making $800,000 every 30 days lol

  22. Calling it transfer payments doesn’t change the fact that its unconstitutional. What’s worse is that we are being unlawfully forced to borrow money from countries like China to pay for it. Congress is a menacing negligent corrupt body that needs to be indicted collectively for failing to protect and defend the constitution. The federal government is an agent of the sovereign but it behaves as if it’s the other way round.

  23. Mississippi been work . You must before you can be calculated over $800 a month =$0. They send you,kids must be in school. Medicaid basically for disabled if their check over $800 $50 that's it. Low housing same or evicted. Going on for about,20 years. You can't miss what you never had.

  24. i totally agree with cleaning up welfare SO LONG AS trump or anyone else does NOT in any way harm the disabled/medically frail and truly needy. ive been on ssi years now. became disabled young through NO FAULT of my own. i shouldnt have to be starving freezing in the streets homeless without medical care so that the gov can add a few extra dollars to their budget. my illnesses (plural) are numerous enough and unique enough that when combined i simply cannot work a normal job or most other jobs and dont have skills or training for anything cushy and even then with a cushy sit down job i still cant do it under normal conditions because my illnesses make it impossible for me to keep a normal 9-5 work week work schedule. i would literally need a cushy sit down and do it on my own time when i feel good job and i quite simply dont know of any of those and the judge for ssi agreed years ago it was unreasonable to expect me to try to find such a job. if trump kicks people like me off welfare we are literally F*cked. so like i said i dont mind reducing welfare laziness and waste with able bodied people but for the love of god leave the vulnerable alone. in fact boost the benefits of the vulnerable if anything but at least leave them alone. as for the recommendation in the executive order about churches taking over i will tell you this life experience i had….
    ……….when i was younger, before becoming disabled, i worked all the time and still couldnt pay rent. we had to sign up for food pantries. thats a great service. however problem with that was in our region they were fiunded by local churches. that was very bad because only christians were helped. it said in application you must have a pastor who can vouch for you that you need help. in other words you arent christian and dont go to church you dont get helped. also i had a friend years ago that i no longer have contact with, who was in the homeless shelter of our region years ago. he happened to be a pagan. the only homeless shelter in whole city was run by a church. they literally forced him to get rid of his personal property which was a pagan textbook and he had to pretend to be christian in order to stay there. michigan had winters that got down to -40 below zero years ago. he couldve lost limbs or died if he didnt do it. in my oipinion that was unethical and it was uncosntitutional. just because its run privately doesnt mean they should be allowed to discriminate or force convert people. also about 6 or so years ago we had tried getting food from a local food pantry run by a firehouse in the region. while they didnt discriminate, the food they handed out was literally no less than a whole month past due date to the point i was afraid to eat it. the juice was 2 months past due date, the cake also hard as rock, and the zuccini had white mold entirely covering all pieces in the hand out bin. that was all in one pick up attempt. if the president expects these hand out programs to be run by communities much more than they are now then there needs to be fair and ethical guidelines put into place.

  25. with drug tests for welfare people……what about people legally on controlled substance prescriptions??????? what about people in states where weed is legal???? what about cigarrettes?? they gonna drug test for and ban tobacco for the same reasons?? cuz if they ban weed from welfare recipients then by logic they should ban tobacco too. but tobacco really is a poison where weed is really a medicine. so i say again what about people in states where weed is legal???? and didnt trump just claim he wont mess with states rights to choose how to handle legal weed?? its not fair to demonize people who LEGALLY have access to weed or have a script for a controlled substance. making poor people pay for gov forced drug tests for welfare is slippery if they go that route. by nature of being poor you cant expect them to afford it.. i do agree as stated in other comment that lazy people need kicked off welfare but what about people who really need help for a moment. not counting lazy people throwing tantrums, what happens when people who really need help for a minute cant get it for themselves and maybe their kids too? i predict crime rates will soar for people in those situations.

  26. I am not anti-welfare, but the program is definitely being overly abused. We do need reform. Also, if you increase minimum pay that should help people live less off the government.

  27. There are plenty of jobs,I see help wanted signs in Colorado,all over,face facts your lazy,from sitting on your butts all that time !!!!!

  28. Working for welfare would mean that Democrats could no longer win the votes or control the lives of liberal leeches (who pay no taxes).
    No wonder they hate this idea.

  29. Trump will work for Satan ignoring me. Jesus wants us to freely give what is asked of us. Jesus also says don't ask amiss. You want people to be like God,;right,Trump? God gave all things to us witout a price. That means that there should not be any price tags anywhere. I will not even give you a good rating Trump refusing to do that. I brought Obama down. I can bring you down to, Trump

  30. I'am all for this as a a federal and state taxpayer we need more restrictions on all welfare programs only do it for 4 months after that get a job

  31. Trump can impose welfare requirements, but trump cant reform what Obamas did, raising limits allowing more ppl eligible.

  32. Vote democrats out of office is only way to win our border, reduce ppl on welfare. It's the only way.

  33. Im sick and tired of paying for listless ppl who procreate children they will not support. I'm sick and tired of seeing decent neighborhoods destroyed by the section eight voucher program. This attitude of entitlement is ridiculous and unfair for hard working tax payers. Gut the welfare system by only permitting the genuinely disabled , etc to receive benefits. Every abled bodied adult with and without children should be working period!

  34. Put these people to work. Place them in construction, any kind of medial government/state job even community service. I know a few of them, all they do is drink all night and sleep all day and keep popping out kids. They pretend to apply for jobs when they have to but they do everything they can in order to not get the job and have to work. They are a cancer to every productive hard-working person in this country.

  35. Where are they NOT hiring? Look around people, plenty of jobs. The problem isn’t that there aren’t enough jobs, the problem is that there aren’t enough people who want to work!
