Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has just proven once again that he’s a governor out to reduce governmental dependency and a constant state of poverty for the state’s citizens.
According to the Washington Examiner, Walker has moved in his executive budget to propose an expansion of work requirements to able-bodied adults with school-age children on food stamps. Currently, food stamp work requirements only apply to able-bodied adults without children.
What’s more, Walker proposed to have the work requirements apply to childless parents on Medicaid and advocated for a pilot program to begin work requirements for able-bodied adults in public housing.
This is exactly what Walker — and every other governor in the nation — needs to be doing.
Obviously, the less governmental interference in the lives of American people, the better. But considering the level of dependency on the government the American people have already, this is a massive step in the right direction.
This is an excellent example of the “hand up, not handout” mindset that has been a rallying cry for conservative fiscal responsibility for years.
With continued work toward weaning welfare recipients from governmental dependency, not only will some citizens cease to be a drain on their neighbors, but also the economy will be stimulated by working, purchasing, responsible citizens.
