Welfare With No End in Sight Is a Terrible Fate. Let’s Help Americans Avoid It.

COMMENTARY BY

Star Parker is a columnist for The Daily Signal and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education.

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program is high on the Republican list of programs targeted for reform—and justifiably so.

The program has gone from 17 million enrollees in 2000 to about 43 million today, with outlays up from about $25 billion to more than $70 billion.

The Trump administration’s budget submitted last February includes major

Trump’s ‘Rescission’ Package Would Save Unspent Tax Dollars

Share

COMMENTARY BY

Justin Bogie is a senior policy analyst in fiscal affairs at The Heritage Foundation.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday submitted a special message to Congress requesting that $15 billion in unspent funding be rescinded.

That’s a good first step toward re-establishing fiscal responsibility. Congress should embrace it and quickly adopt the president’s rescission package.

Still, the package does nothing to claw back the tens of billions of additional dollars in wasteful spending authorized

Walter Williams: Before and After Welfare Handouts

Share

Before the massive growth of our welfare state, private charity was the sole option for an individual or family facing insurmountable financial difficulties or other challenges. How do we know that? There is no history of Americans dying on the streets because they could not find food or basic medical assistance. Respecting the biblical commandment to honor thy father and mother, children took care of their elderly or infirm parents. Family members and the local church also helped those who had fallen on hard times.

$2B federal program rewards employers to not hire Americans

Share

BY DAVID NORTH/Spero News

There’s a government program that rewards American employers for not hiring American college grads — for hiring foreign alumni instead — by draining about $2 billion a year from the government trust funds for the elderly (Medicare and Social Security) to pay those employers.

It is the Optional Practical Training program.

How can you write an otherwise accurate article about the subject without mentioning the massive subsidy that the trust funds are providing these employers for the act of hiring the aliens, not Americans?

Well, the Wall Street Journal, on May 10, managed to do exactly that in an article headlined:

No, The U.S. Isn’t ‘Undertaxed’

Share

Investor’s Business Daily/

EDITORIALS

Taxes: One of the talking points Democrats and the left often drag out to justify reversing the Trump tax cuts is that the U.S. is “undertaxed” compared with other nations. A new study shows that’s false.

Everyone from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer to socialist independent Bernie Sanders says they would reverse the tax cuts. It’s premised not on the idea that we spend too much, but that working Americans keep just too dang much of their own money.

The problem is, as a new OECD study shows,that’s not true.

Fox News Covers Big Win in Ghost Teachers Case!-By the Commonwealth Foundation

Share

Thursday, May 10, 2018

Dear CF Friend,

Kids and taxpayers won a major victory in the fight against ghost teachers in Reading School District!

This week, as detailed by Fox News, “The Reading Education Association, the union at the center of the controversy, has agreed to a memorandum of understanding with Reading School District to reimburse the school district for all future costs,” for the teachers they pull from the classroom to work for the union full-time.

From 2011-2016, the financially struggling district paid nearly $600,000 for ghost teachers that worked for the union while receiving taxpayer-funded salaries, pension credits, and seniority.

No more.

This unethical use of taxpayer funding was exposed when the Fairness Center, on

The Trump administration intends to ask Congress to cancel $15 billion in spending Tuesday, although some conservative lawmakers say more could be done to reduce government waste.

“Tomorrow the president is going to be using his authority under the Impoundment Control Act to send up the largest rescissions package in history from a president,” a senior administration official said Monday evening on a conference call.

“This first package will be the first of several,” the senior official said. “It will be designed to
