What is Obama’s solution to the troubled economy? He’s failed at creating jobs with his stimulus proposals so he is going to double down the method he knows best. Give out more free money!
Via the HHS (Health and Human Services), Obama will eliminate work requirements as a means of receiving welfare. So now it is a free-for-all. Get all the welfare you want. Get all the food stamps you want. Get all the Social Security Disability Insurance you want.
Obama wants this entitlement society.
- It expands his tax base.
- It boosts GDP with fake spending, borrowed from China.
- He can inflate his numbers prior to November.
HHS is suddenly allowing for more flexibility in a program known — and in many circles, lauded — for its rigid framework. Currently, states have to have 50 percent of their caseload meet certain work participation requirements, though there are ways around that as many states fall short.
The latest department directive suggested alternative plans could "combine learning and work" to fulfill the work requirement, or let "vocational educational training or job search /readiness programs" count as well.
