Welfare is a massive problem here in the United States.
Many hardworking middle class Americans are forced to prop up our broken welfare system and support the lazy lifestyles of degenerates throughout the country.
That is all set to change under President Donald Trump, who has promised social benefit cuts to alleviate the amount they have to pay on their taxes.
According to the Washington Examiner, the Freedom Caucus is working hard to come up with a new plan that will impose work requirements and time limits on any individual that is seeking social benefits like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program and the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program.
“It’s good policy to encourage work,” Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, a member of the Freedom Caucus, told the Examiner.
Alabama recently did something like this and it has worked very well for them.

Conservative Tribune reports:
Speaking with The Daily Signal, Virginia Republican Rep. Dave Brat noted that the underlying goal is to ensure “every able-bodied person gets into the workforce,” while the secondary goal is to save an estimated $400 to $500 billion that could be used to lower taxes for those Americans who actually work.
“You are getting able-bodied people back in the workforce, along with tax cuts that are going to stimulate job production and the economy, so it’s a win-win and that’s the goal,” he said. “Our measure of success is how many people we get back in the workforce and off of federal programs.”
Of course, far-left radicals disagree. A leftist at the radical blog Daily Kos kvetched that the caucus “wants to cut food stamps to pay for corporate tax cuts.”
That’s a lie. The caucus wants to both reform welfare to incentivize people to return to the workforce and also provide much-needed tax savings to a middle class that has been devastated by eight years of socialist-lite redistribution schemes under former President Barack Obama.
Welfare should only be made available to those who really need it. If you are perfectly healthy and capable of working, our welfare programs should help you find a job, not provide you an infinite supply of free cash.
Our welfare programs have been abused for years under the Democrats, who were more than happy to hand out massive payments in return for votes. Thank God we have responsible leadership now who are willing to stop this insane level of wastage.
