This guy is the president we’ve needed for thirty years.
He’ll do what Reagan talked about but couldn’t accomplish.
If the idiots in The Swamp had even an ounce of the presidents desire to fix this nations problems we might just make it! Have to admire this mans tenacity and sense of purpose despite enemy fire coming at him from every direction.
Government needs to get completely out of the charity business
They weren't - they were conceived to keep poor people dependent on government and voting Rat.
When he was campaigning I predicted that if he won, he would send the economy skyrocketing and bring unemployment to record low levels. Then half kidding I said he would unite North and South Korea. The first one, OK...that wasn’t hard to guess, but the second? My God, is he really doing it? North and South having peace talks? WTF?? All this in barely over a year in office! AND ALL HE GETS IS CRAP even from his own party! If it wasn’t for them the Obamacare nightmare would have been repealed and replaced and that wall would be getting built. Instead what do they focus on? Mueller Mueller Mueller, porn star, his lawyer, blah blah blah.
Hell do what Reagan talked about but couldnt accomplish.
In many areas.
There’s no dignity in handouts!
No man wants that - they want work; they need to work and truly take care of themselves and their family.
And no women wants to be with a man and have his children who lives an aimless, slothful life.
Bravo, Mr. President. This is a critical part of MAGA for sure.
The Left loves Norway but you can't become a citizen of Norway if you aren't earning at least $40k a year.
Many grown males are not men.
He is fearless. He is fixing the things that others lacked the courage to even mention, this will accomplish great good.
Starr Parker WAS on welfare herself and COMPLETELY turned her life around under POTUS Clintons welfare to work program!!! She was FORCED to improve her life AND now she is one of us says the government enabled her for years!!!!
Actually, that was Newt Gingrich's program. The Gingrich reforms were so successful that Clinton ran on them -- as his own idea -- in 1996.
Weve needed him since the War on Poverty, which did nothing but condemn millions of people to government dependency and poverty for going on 50 years now.
Look at the history of the CCC. Many young people begged to get into the program so they could work, get a few bucks, meals and some clothing. Granted, there were some make work projects under the program but the reforestation, park, dam and road building, and education, some 400,000 learned to read and write, were worthwhile. I believe the pay was $30 per month of which $25 was sent home to support family.
There is a big difference between those capable of work and those who can’t. Those who can’t should be cared for but those capable should provide something in return for taking my $.
Government isn’t providing charity! Charity is the free giving of your own resources. The government is redistributing someone else money, the someone else having no say or choice in the distribution.
Reagan had GHWB sabotaging his efforts.
They also need to get out of the education business. There is nothing in the Constitution about either one.
Reduce all immigration to zero, end H-1B and promote on shoring of manufacturing back to the USA with a 20% import tariff. Then watch wages go up, deficits disappear and prosperity return to the USA.
