Ricardo has copied & pasted the text below;
The 'daft twerp' signs executive order pushing work requirements for the poor.
10 April 2018

We can lift our citizens from welfare to work.
From dependence to independence.
And from poverty to prosperity.
~ the 'daft twerp'

Executive Order on Economic Mobility takes the first steps toward welfare reform in America.

The order provides nine Principles of Economic Mobility.
Which will guide agencies that administer public assistance programs.
To effectively reform the welfare system by directing that they:

Improve employment outcomes and economic independence;

Promote marriage and family as a way of escaping poverty;

Address the challenges of hard-to-employ populations;

Provide more flexibility to States, while ensuring accountability for achieving outcomes;

Streamline services to more effectively use taxpayer resources;

Reserve benefits for those truly in need;

Consolidate duplicative programs;

Facilitate greater sharing of information.

Between States and localities; and

Empower the private sector to find solutions to poverty.

The order focuses on increasing opportunities for those in need by:

Strengthening current work requirements;

Empowering States, localities, tribal governments, and private-sector entities.

To serve individuals and families in need; and

Using taxpayer dollars for their intended purpose.

Which includes ensuring only eligible persons receive benefits.

The order directs Federal agencies.

That administer public assistance programs to:

Review all regulations.

And guidance documents relating to work;

Ensure such regulations and documents.

Are consistent with the principles for reform;

Send a report to the President.

On what they can do to get Americans back to work.

And take steps to implement such recommendations.

Welfare enrollment is at a record high for able-bodied adults in America.
Despite near-record low unemployment in most places.

In 2016, over 16 million able-bodied adults were enrolled.
In the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

In January 2018, over 74 million Americans were enrolled in Medicaid.
And the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
A 29 percent increase over the 2013 baseline period.

Today, there are a record 28 million able-bodied adults on Medicaid.
In fact, since 2000, the number of able-bodied adults on Medicaid has quadrupled.

Adding or enforcing work requirements for able-bodied adults on welfare.
Is an effective solution to help millions of Americans regain their independence.

My Note:
They have to pay for their tax cuts for the RICH.
By making the POOR go to WORK.
Next they will be-coming for Medicare.
VA benefits for veterans?
And all the above brought back memories.
Of fancy words on 'Quality Control' in my old steel-mill.
But it wasn't about improving our steel products.
It was what they would do, to reduce the work-force.
Many were send to the unemployment line.
One poor soul took his life that very day.
Is that the fate of some folk losing what little aid they get.
Some of these folk are the result of drug use now in play.

Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
Diabetes II or Diabetes 2
Affect a few.
What's a body to do?
Walk a few.
Blocks or in a local mall.

Looking more like the puppet Walter!

Ricardo in virtual reality.
Virtual reality.
Is the term used to describe a three-dimensional.
Computer generated environment.
