The Trump Administration’s budget proposes a 2-fold solution to the abuse of food stamps.
First, the proposed laws will require able-bodied adults to work or be preparing to work in exchange for government benefits.
Welfare should, the President believes, involve reciprocity between tax-payer and recipient, not a one-way proposition.
The plan also involves restoring fiscal responsibility to state governments.
It is hoped that handing some of the funding for food stamps back to the states will encourage accountability.
Perhaps, it is felt, if states must pay for abuse themselves, they will do a better job preventing it.
