Welfare fraud is a serious problem of this country, thanks to Obama’s destructive policies and his love for immigrants. But Trump has a solution for that problem, and it’s something none of us have seen before.
Keep in mind, the possible solutions are pretty much limited to finding and rooting out the cheaters. Reforming the system as a whole is much, much harder, that’s why no politician has solved it yet.
But a businessman might. And Trump just put forward a genius solution – charge retailers for accepting food stamps.
It’s not an expected solution. But it 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, reports My Right America. According to the president’s budget estimate, the fee would generate $2.4 billion in revenue over the next decade.
According to Uconservative ,An OMB official described the fee as “modest” and “reasonable,” pointing out that some large retailers redeem a billion dollars or more in food stamp benefits each year.
Stores that accept food stamps make a lot of money off the federal government, and ultimately off taxpayers. And if they’re going to be making that money, shouldn’t they at least make sure that every transaction is fair?
And what better way to make sure that every transaction is fair than by charging stores for food stamp purchases? That way, freeloaders’ purchases would be controlled by retailers themselves, so taxpayer funds won’t be used for buying booze and cigarettes.
It’s brilliant, businesslike, and commonsense. Which means that liberals would protest it.
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.”
