Missouri Just Forced All Welfare Recipients to GET A JOB Here Are The Results:

The state of Missouri took a stand against the generational dependence upon the government, forcing welfare recipients to get a job.

Approximately 41,000 Missouri residents no longer have access to the welfare food stamps program after a new time limit law went into effect in 2015. The new state law was actually a reinstatement of welfare reform enacted during President Bill Clinton’s administration.

The 1996 welfare law, which has now been reinstated, limited food stamps for able-bodies and childless adults to only three months out of every three years, America Now reports. Participants would continue to receive the taxpayer-funded benefits only if they worked 20 hours per week or attended an approved job training program.

“We want people to go to work in Mississippi,” Republican Governor Phil Bryant said when his state, like many others, ended the time limits and work/training restrictions for the food stamp program.

“We want these individuals to get a good job and live the American dream, not just be dependent on the federal government.”

There are too many on welfare who are leeching off the system.

But there are also many who want to work, who simply have NO work to be found at all.

This is what the policies of the past quarter century have brought us to. Record unemployment bringing too many onto the public dole. Nobody can tell me that this was unintentional.

Hoping and praying that things will be changing soon.

“We want these individuals to get a good job and live the American dream, not just be dependent on the federal government.”

So do I but you can’t raise a family on $10 an hour and that is the kind of jobs that we have now. You can’t even raise a family on $20 an hour.

I’m against the perpetual dole but we have this all or nothing thing going. If we don’t have decent jobs that can provide a living wage for honest work we have failed. I don’t mind a hand up for people who are working but I am all against perpetual handouts for able people. I see lots of trash and things that need done to help out the rest of us while we help others who are at least doing something.

Click bait for both states.

Governor Bryant is actually in Mississippi. Welfare reform seems to be happening there: http://watchdog.org/258590/welfare-reform/. But it’s old news.

Capitol idea! Add Illinois and New York to the list and Washington and Oregon. Those states think they know what is best for all the rest of us so it is about time we turned the tide and gave them some of their own medicine.

For the media, the two states are the same thing. Just flyover country.
