States are moving to once again require able-bodied adults to work in exchange for food stamps, after the requirements were suspended by the Obama administration.
President Obama allowed states to suspend a requirement that able-bodied adults without children work at least 20 hours per week or participate in a training program to receive benefits for more than three months.
He allowed recipients to stay on food stamps indefinitely, arguing the three-month maximum was unfair.
Limits have also been imposed on how recipients could use their benefits after finding some use their welfare cash and food stamps cards on cruise ships, casinos and strip clubs.
Welfare is meant to be second chance, not a way of life.
