If you give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. If you teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.
Of course, liberals don’t really believe this old adage. They believe in giving freeloaders everything they want at the expense of taxpayers. They see no need to inspire Americans to work to better their circumstances. If they did this, it would threaten their ability to stay in power.
The Democratic Party can only thrive when they make citizens dependent on them. By giving out welfare to those too lazy to work, the Democrats get their votes, and the freeloaders get their government assistance.
But President Trump has had enough of people taking advantage of these programs, and his new budget is calling for a major overhaul of a significant government subsidy.
From Conservative Tribune:
President Donald Trump is making good on campaign promises to cut the federal budget by requiring able-bodied persons to work to receive food stamps as part of his 2018 budget plan.
By limiting the number of people who rely on welfare to fund their lives, the federal government will purportedly save $190 billion over the next ten years.
Trump’s measure can’t come soon enough. Food stamp fraud has been running rampant across the country for decades, and new cases are being uncovered all the time. Patriot Journal recently reported on the arrest of 14 Muslim store owners who altogether stole $16 million from taxpayers by exchanging food stamps for cash in their stores.
Critics are claiming that President Trump’s plan will ruin the lives of people who depend on food stamps to eat, but the President has stated that those who are truly in need won’t be affected.
Currently an estimated 50 million Americans receive food stamps, but the new budget plan will only make it mandatory for able-bodied adults to get a job.
President Trump stated that those who are able to work but still receive food stamps are “taking away scarce resources from those in real need. Work must be the center of our social policy.”
Better get out those work gloves boys and girls. Leeches are no longer allowed!
