Trump signs order promoting work requirements for welfare programs
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order promoting work requirements for people who use government benefit programs such as Medicaid, food stamps, and housing aid.
Andrew Bremberg, the White House director of the Domestic Policy Council, said reform of the welfare system “is necessary to prosperity and independence.”
The Washington Examiner reports: The order would encourage agencies to strengthen work requirements for people who are able to work. As with previous broad orders signed by Trump, it calls for agencies to review all work requirements and report back, setting up possible changes in regulations.
Bremberg said that the order is meant to ensure that people in need continue to receive assistance while eliminating the “stagnation” created by government dependency.
Despite low unemployment rates, “our country still struggles from nearly record high welfare enrollments,” he noted.
