Welfare Reform May Finally Become a Reality Under President Trump

Share

By Matt | Contributor | THE POLITICAL INSIDER

In 2009, 33,490,000 people received food stamp benefits. And it only went up from there under Obama’s watch. By October of 2016, 44,219,123 people received food stamp benefits, an increase of about 10,729,000.

Under President Donald Trump, that trend has finally reversed. The number of food stamp dependent Americans hit a six-year low during Trump’s first year in office, with two million going off the dole. Much of that is attributable to an improving economy, but there’s still much room for improvement.

Exclusive: Conservative Lawmakers’ Blueprint Would Trim Nondefense Spending, Balance Budget in 8 Years

Share

“Our job … is to put together some kind of blueprint” for government spending, says Rep. Mark Walker, R-N.C., chairman of the Republican Study Committee. (Photo: Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call/Newscom)

House conservatives propose to cut nondefense spending and balance the federal budget within eight years in a blueprint released Wednesday.

The document produced by the Republican Study Committee, the largest caucus of GOP lawmakers in the House, includes a long list of policy goals such as repealing Obamacare, restoring power to states, making tax cuts “permanent,” reforming welfare programs, and “saving” Social Security and Medicare.

The 169-page blueprint, called “A Framework for Unified Conservatism,” proposes to cut government spending

The Looming Fiscal Nightmare of Extravagant Unfunded Pensions for State and Local Bureaucrats

Share

By

Back in 2013, I shared a poll to see who people would pick as their “favorite political cartoonist.” Michael Ramirez currently has the lead, which doesn’t surprise me when you look at options (here, here, here, and here) I provided.

But if there was a prize for the most depressingly accurate political cartoon, he also would win the prize for his depiction of what happens when state and local politicians “negotiate” compensation packages for bureaucrats.

Simply stated, politicians have a giant incentive to provide lavish benefits to interest groups that then recycle some of

Millionaire Protesting Welfare Abuse Collects Thousands in Food Stamps to Prove His Point

Share

Rob Undersander and his wife, of Waite Park, Minnesota, collected roughly $6,000 in food stamp benefits despite having assets that categorized them as millionaires. They did it to prove a point: not everyone receiving food stamps should be.

Rob Undersander recently testified before a Minnesota House committee on behalf of Rep. Jeff Howe of Rockville, who introduced a bill to change the state’s eligibility process.

“I have obviously gotten your attention,” Undersander said during his testimony.

The Undersanders purposefully applied for and received food stamps for 19 months to determine if anyone who does not need the aid could still receive it. They participated in the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program

AN INTERESTING FACT ABOUT ALL IMMIGRANTS CURRENTLY IN FEDERAL PRISON

Share

STEVEN AHLE

A new report from the Trump administration found that 92% of all immigrants in federal prisons are illegals and furthermore, 94% of all immigrants in federal prisons or in the custody of the US Marshal’s office came to this country illegally.

That means that the number of crimes committed by illegal aliens is far above their percentage of the country’s population. AG Sessions noted that every crime committed by illegal aliens. He said that one victim is one too many.

Not surprisingly liberal Democrats do their best to keep these criminals from being deported.

COMMENTARY BY

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

It takes a lot of courage for a president to target almost a quarter of the federal budget for reform in an election year.

But this is exactly what President Donald Trump is doing with his executive order, “Reducing Poverty in America by Promoting Opportunity and Economic Mobility.”

We’re now spending more

Q&A With Rep. Kevin Brady: ‘America’s Back’ Because of Tax Cuts

Share

Genevieve Wood / /The Daily Signal

House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Texas, sat down with The Daily Signal to talk about the historic tax reform package passed by Congress and the impact it will have, and in some cases already is having, on individuals, families, and the economy. On the midterm elections, Brady says the key question voters should ask themselves is whether they want to go back to the old tax system—which is what he believes Democrats will try to do if they win a majority—or to keep pushing for further reforms.

Genevieve Wood: Congressman Kevin Brady, thank you for sitting down with The Daily Signal.

Kevin Brady: My pleasure, thank you.

Wood: You were just speaking
