That is the problem for democrats and the Obama administration. There are many problems that both the democrats and the Obama administration will not be happy with. For instance Ryan’s budget aims to “retool” the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or food stamps, by taking much of the program’s power away from the federal government and handing it over to individual states, according to the budget description.
First off, the budget “eliminates the incentive for states to sign up as many recipients as possible.” Then, after the economy has recovered, Ryan’s budget calls for SNAP to turn into a block grant program for states.
“After employment has recovered, it converts SNAP into a block grant, indexed for inflation and eligibility,” the Ryan budget description reads. “This reform allows states to tailor their programs to their recipients’ needs. And it encourages states to help recipients find work.” In addition to those reforms, the Ryan budget “calls for time limits and work requirements.”
The Ryan budget also calls for the reinstatement of the work requirement for another welfare program, the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program.
President Barack Obama gutted the welfare work requirements, passed during Bill Clinton’s presidency with bipartisan support while Newt Gingrich was the Speaker of the House, last year. Many in the media, and Obama himself, claimed during the last election that Mitt Romney’s campaign ad claiming Obama “quietly ended” the welfare work requirement was not true.
