Trump to bring back work requirements for Americans on welfare.......

Via Billy

........reversing an Obama-era policy that had encouraged states to apply for waivers that would exempt welfare recipients from needing to prove that they were either working or receiving job training.

Requiring work or job training was an integral part of the 1996 welfare reform law signed by former President Bill Clinton, The Washington Times reported.

Ohio was the only state that applied for a waiver, which was neither approved nor denied by the previous administration, according to the Associated Press. On Wednesday, the Trump administration closed the door on even the possibility the waiver would be approved by officially denying Ohio’s request, according to AP.


  1. I heard this rumor years ago that this was or was planning to be a requirement for welfare, but I thought it to be a joke. It will be interesting to see how this works out.
    My bet is that it won't!
