JACKPOT For Tax Payers! Welfare Recipients Get Devastating News…

Evidently there is economic sanity in Georgia. They have just ‘adjusted’ the work requirements in that state for food stamp recipients. Those on welfare will be devastated by this… working Americans should cheer it.

Liberals will scream bloody murder over this. You know they will. But people who are not lazy, capable of math and relatively sane, see this as the right thing to do. If you are able-bodied and capable of working, then you should get a job and not just feed at the federal trough and sit on your ass in front of the TV or computer all day long. Hate to break it to you… but production is the basis of morale and morality.


From The Federalist Papers Project:

Georgia has decided there’s no such thing as a free lunch.

Not anymore, anyway.

The state’s work requirements for food stamps – currently in three Atlanta-area counties – will be expanded to 24 counties across the state.

The new work mandate only affects able-bodied adults without children, in other words, precisely the type of people who should be working.

“No one who is able-bodied and able to work should be drawing food stamps, period,” State Rep. Greg Morris of Vidalia said. And I could not agree more. It should be that way in every state. This move will cover 10,000 current food stamp recipients. It will reduce the financial load on the state of Georgia significantly.

Before people start yelling that this isn’t fair… the requirements are a no-brainer:

  • You must work at least 20 hours per week.
  • Can’t find a job? You must be looking for a job.
  • Don’t want to look for a job? You can participate in job training.
  • Don’t want to do job training? You can go to school.
  • Don’t want job training? You can volunteer for 20 hours per week at a non-profit or charity.

What it basically means is that if you are childless and able-bodied, you have to be productive for at least 20 hours a week to get food stamps. In other words, you work for it. I know that is a foreign concept to liberals and those with an entitlement mentality, but tough toodles. You also have the right of appeal in case you are removed from the list and you consider that unfair. Under the rules, able-bodied, childless recipients can receive food stamps for only three months in any three-year period, unless they meet the work requirements.

Liberals are in meltdown over this, claiming that people will die in the streets. No, they’ll live AND work, providing exchange for what they are given. The free ride is over. Get over it and get off your ass and go to work. I don’t care about your excuses about a criminal record, no education or age… if you really want to work, you will find a way.
