President Trump Takes on the Welfare State, Calls for Reform

Another Thanksgiving has come and gone, and while millions of Americans took a moment to reflect and give thanks to the greatest nation on earth, far too many others continue to leech off our tax dollars and ask for more.

A new report released yesterday details President Trump's intention to take on the welfare system in America.

From PBS:

Trump, who has been signaling interest in the issue for some time, said this past week that he wants to tackle the issue after the tax overhaul he is seeking by the end of the year. He said changes were “desperately needed in our country” and that his administration would soon offer plans.

For now, the president has not offered details. Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said more specifics were likely early next year. But the groundwork has already begun at the White House and Trump has made his interest known to Republican lawmakers.

Paul Winfree, director of budget policy and deputy director of Trump’s Domestic Policy Council, told a recent gathering at the conservative Heritage Foundation that he and another staffer had been charged with “working on a major welfare reform proposal.” He said they have drafted an executive order on the topic that would outline administration principles and direct agencies to come up with recommendations.

“The president really wants to lead on this,” Winfree said. “He has delivered that message loud and clear to us. We’ve opened conversations with leadership in Congress to let them know that that is the direction we are heading.”

Good on Trump for taking charge of the sad (welfare) state of affairs. Each year, welfare spending tops the charts as the biggest expenditure of the federal government. As the U.S. continues to sink ever deeper into debt, the welfare system sucks up over $1 trillion of tax-payer money.

America was not built by people suffering from entitlement psychosis. It's about time the leeches woke up and worked alongside the rest of us.

Stay alert. Stay alive.
