You guys, this is monumental information!

According to Breitbart:

Approximately 6.1 million individuals dropped off the food stamp rolls since President Donald Trump’s first full month in office in February 2017, according to the latest data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

I’m all for helping the poor and those enduring times of need, but only for a temporary basis (unless disabilities necessitate otherwise).

More from Breitbart:

The USDA data showed that 6,074,074 individuals discontinued their participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) between February 2017— when the president completed his first full month in office— and November 2019.

It is so much more beneficial for people to have incentives that are correlated with goals relative to what will help them grow and succeed. Otherwise, they would be on government assistance, fall into the trap of learned helplessness, and only take from the pool of taxes.

When we have more individuals working and contributing to society, the whole nation grows from it.

More from Breitbart:

Trump recently made it a point in his annual State of the Union address to stress that he helped the poor move off welfare to find jobs with his recent enactment of work requirements.

Under these work requirements, which had been enacted at the state level during the Obama years, those between the ages of 18-49 and without children or dependents who receive food stamps for more than three months in a 36-month period must work, go to school, receive job training, or volunteer to receive benefits.

Additionally, the USDA is also cracking down on food stamp fraud through computer algorithms, especially to decipher overpayments. There were $2 million worth of overpayments in Mississippi alone.

These incentives and requirements are exactly what this country needs in order to embrace our prosperity again.

If it bothers you to get a job, and sustain that job, then you have bigger fish to fry.
