Typically, non-disabled working age adults without dependents who participate in the food stamps program have to fulfill certain work requirements. During the recession, the Obama administration created waivers for these work requirements.
This week, I introduced a bill that eliminates these work requirement waivers for non-disabled working age adults without dependents.
My bill is an important step in reforming welfare programs to help free capable individuals from government dependence and empower them to achieve the American Dream. I know that individuals fall on hard times occasionally and assistance should be available, but these work requirement waivers are part of an unfortunate trend of government laws and regulations that create disincentives for individuals to work.
