workfare

Liberal war on work

Stephen Moore, Washington Times

The left’s latest idea to end poverty is to give every American a guaranteed family income. Mr. Trump wants to give everyone a job. The Democrats want to give the poor a fish. Mr. Trump wants to teach people to fish so they can eat for a lifetime. I suspect the American public is solidly behind Mr. Trump in this public policy fight and Republicans would be wise to double down on work requirements to convert welfare into a hand up, not a hand-out.

No More Free Lunch

Since 2015 federal welfare spending has outpaced defense spending. President Trump’s workfare proposal demonstrates that he is busy doing what is important for Americans. Congress should join him.
