Our nation offers an assortment of help projects to those in need. While those projects appear to be decent on paper—Welfare checks, government housing, and food stamps—as a general rule they are frequently mishandled. More awful they turn into a crutch, with the goal that individuals aren’t motivated to buckle down and win a superior life. Be that as it may, late news recommends that no less than one program isn’t the prop that it used to be. Much obliged to some degree to new, presence of sense rules.
Participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) dropped to 41,310,785 in June 2017, the latest data available from the USDA, from 42,691,363 in January 2017.
Food stamp usage has been on a steady decline since Donald Trump began his presidency in January 2017, with the latest data showing that SNAP enrollment decreased by more than 1.3 million, or 3.23 percent, since the beginning of his term in office.
The most significant drops in enrollment took place from January to February and March to April.
The two months where SNAP participation dropped the most can be attributed to states that started reimplementing work requirements to receive food stamps around that time…
Trump’s 2018 budget proposal proposed cuts to SNAP, and suggested that states match up to 20 percent of federal money allotted for the food stamp program.
The president also called for states to expand work requirements for able-bodied adults receiving food stamps if they have not already done so. Some federal lawmakers are crafting legislation to implement this policy nationwide, along with time limits on how long food stamp recipients can receive benefits.
It’s entirely sensible for states and the central government to require able-bodied grown-ups search for work. While food stamps are useful, there is no reason somebody can’t, in any event, be searching for work.
The sharp and consistent drop in food stamp use is an indication that the individuals who searched for occupations discovered them and never again required government help. Those that declined to search for jobs, well, they lost their gift.
Add to that an ever-increasing number of jobs returning to the nation, you have a circumstance where more Americans needn’t bother with government offer assistance. They can work to acquire their keep, as everybody should.
Attempting to pay your direction is a type of freedom. You win that cash, so you can choose what to do with it. You needn’t bother with the administration holding your hand, revealing to you what to purchase.
That is uplifting news all around.
