Trump just did something guaranteed to make liberals howl and surprisingly it got little press.
That alone tells you how much the media has Russia fever.
So in case you missed it, President Donald Trump signed an executive order Tuesday that will make welfare recipients (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits, Medicaid and low-income housing subsidies) work or lose their aide.
From the New York Times:
The order gave all cabinet departments 90 days to produce plans that impose work requirements on able-bodied aid recipients and block ineligible immigrants from receiving aid, while drafting “a list of recommended regulatory and policy changes” to push recipients off the rolls and into jobs.
When the left says nothing about a huge change that hits their constituency hard, you know Russia fever has taken over their minds.
We did find one publication that ripped the decision although as per usual with the left their attack makes no sense.
From the root:
“Our country suffers from nearly record high welfare enrollments,” said Andrew Bremberg, the president’s domestic policy chief, according to the Times, which notes that Temporary Assistance for Needy Families payments to poor people are approaching record lows.
Trump also reportedly wants to change the word “welfare” to include not only cash payments but also food and medical benefits (SNAP and Medicaid).
Or he just doesn’t give AF. And I quote: “Mr. Trump, several aides said, is unconcerned—or perhaps even unaware—of the distinction between cash assistance and other safety-net programs … he calls them all welfare.”
So do most Americans and just another reason why Trump won.
