The 2016 President campaign came with many promises from both sides. The Democrats promised to basically print more money and make everyone’s dreams come true, while the Republicans promised to drop the hammer on the ill-considered economic and security decisions that former President Obama enacted.
President Trump has already followed through on many of those promises, giving the states back the rights to drug test welfare recipients and it looks like more bad news for those resisting gainful employment.

The Department of Agriculture this week announced a change in the way that food stamps or now known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Plan (SNAP) will be doled out.
The Department will now start being stricter about who is eligible for the program. The eligibility guidelines were updated three years ago, but have not been implemented up to date.
Section 4008 of the 2014 Farm Bill denied benefits to two groups: Those “convicted of federal aggravated sexual abuse, murder, sexual exploitation and abuse of children, sexual assault, or similar offenses under state laws, as well as those who are not in compliance with the terms of their sentence or parole or are fleeing felons, from receiving food stamps.”
So basically President Trump is moving us back toward a place where you are unable to live off taxpayers dime if you’re spending your time committing violent crimes. Somehow this is frustrating many liberals who think everyone who is unwilling to work or incapable of compassion should get a free ride.
It makes you think that maybe the Democrats have a different long term goal for our country if they even let felons on government assistance in the first place. Thanks to the common sense thinking of the new administration, though, the US economy might start to get something back from these former leaches.
