Here’s Who Trump is About to Start Charging for Food Stamps Raising Billions In Revenue
Among America’s many national problems is the issue of welfare fraud. Our welfare system is so obviously flawed that we are unable to utilize it for those who really need it. President Trump has been coming up with solutions to our big issues rather than leaving them to sit and get even worse. His solution is something totally new to Americans, and he seems to know exactly what he’s doing.
It’s important to remember that any solution to solve Welfare Fraud is extremely limited to pinpointing and clearing out those who are abusing the system. Changing the entire system all together is an extremely difficult task. It is such a complex concept that no politician has previously solved the issue of Welfare Fraud. President Trump is determined to change that. If anyone can lessen the likelihood of Welfare Fraud, it would be a seasoned businessman, and that’s exactly who President Trump is. His plan? Charge retailers for accepting food stamps in their stores.
None of us would have expected the solution that President Trump came up with, but it really seems to be a tactic that might actually work.
The Office of Management and Budget said the fee would be assessed when stores sign up and would require renewal after five years. The president’s budget estimates that the fee would generate $2.4 billion in revenue over the next decade.
This is an amazing idea that I’m surprised no one has ever thought of before. If stores accept food stamps they are making tons of extra profit off of the federal government. Basically, in the end, it’s the taxpayers in our country who end up paying for it. If these store owners are going to continue to make that extra income, they should be held responsible for making it. This system will make sure all transactions are fair.
The best way to make sure that all transactions are fair is to charge stores that accept food stamps for all transactions that involve food stamps. We can better ensure that people won’t be taking advantage of the food stamp system by purchasing alcohol and cigarettes on the taxpayers’ dime.
And they did. The Food Marketing Institute said, we oppose the “flawed policy of imposing fees on food retailers in order to reduce the cost of the federal government’s nutrition assistance benefits to the most needy in our society.”
I love everything about this. A lobbying group puts forth a vague and poorly-worded sentence that says, in a nutshell, “I DON’T LIKE WHAT TRUMP IS DOING!!!” Without, of course, explaining exactly what is wrong with Trump’s proposals.
President Trump is doing everything he can to fix our broken Welfare system and help the taxpayers of America keep as much of their own money as possible. This is what a president should be doing. God bless President Trump.
