Trump Just Saved Taxpayers $150 BILLION With Brand New Welfare Rule

Good News!

The Trump Administration has unveiled a new welfare rule that will save American taxpayers an estimated $150 billion.

As noted by The Western Journal, the new rule will close numerous loopholes in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program that states have been exploiting to exempt large portions of food stamp recipients from work requirements.

The new rule changes the application process for food stamps from every two years to every one year as well as tightens the unemployment requirements for applicants.

For years, states have been legally allowed to submit requests to the Federal Nutrition Service to waive the federal work requirement for adults without dependents so that they could receive taxpayer-funded food stamps.

The loopholes essentially have been allowing able-bodied, healthy people to receive government assistance when they were perfectly capable of getting a job.

But the Trump administration is closing those loopholes.

USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue said in a statement that the rule change will save an estimated $15 billion every year over the next 10 years, bringing the total to $150 billion in the next decade.

“A central theme of the Trump administration has been to expand prosperity for all Americans, which includes helping people lift themselves out of pervasive poverty. The proposed rule, he added, “restores the dignity of work to a sizable segment of our population, which it’s also respectful of the taxpayers who fund the program.”

Kristina Rasmussen, vice president of federal affairs at FGA, released a statement applauding the rule change, and even argued more could be done to combat states exploiting food stamp requirements.

“More loopholes still need to be closed to prevent states from further abusing the process. The Department should be commended for asking questions and requesting comments on several areas that can be tightened further to promote work, including grouping of jurisdictions. There is now an opportunity for the administration to promote work for able-bodied adults even further.”

One of my friends is an employee in a local school district.  She encourages ALL families with students to apply for free or reduced lunches - whether or not you need the help - because the state (and federal) aid is determined by the number of applicants, and not the actual need! 

Wow, just wow! And they wonder why the govt and states are broke.
