I am sick of feeding and housing these people. Let them starve. Let them freeze.
The budget that President Trump proposed Monday takes a hard whack at the poorest Americans, slashing billions of dollars from food stamps, public health insurance and federal housing vouchers, while trying to tilt the programs in more conservative directions.
The spending plan reaches beyond the White House’s own power over the government social safety net and presumes lawmakers will overhaul long-standing entitlement programs for the poor in ways beyond what Congress so far has been willing to do.
The changes call on lawmakers to eliminate the expansion of Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act and transform the rest of that program into a system of capped payments to states; convert food assistance into a hybrid of commodity deliveries and traditional cash benefits; and expand requirements that low-income people work to qualify for federal assistance.
Clearly, no one is going to be starving or freezing.
Which just tells you how bad the situation is – you can make massive cuts to welfare and no one is at risk of having anything other than luxuries taken from them.
In my view, the whole concept of welfare is flawed. They started this saying it was for cripples and old people – okay, fine. But the idea that a person with the ability to work should get handouts is just nuts. It is just a gibs program for niggers.
Get them out.
