RSC Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), Rep. Tim Scott (R-SC), and Rep. Scott Garrett (R-NJ) have introduced the Welfare Reform Act of 2011.
This legislation will help food stamp recipients become independent of government assistance, give taxpayers a clearer picture of national welfare spending, and return the federal welfare budget to pre-recession levels after unemployment falls to 6.5%.Currently, there are 77 means-tested federal programs that provide benefits specifically to poor and low-income Americans.
People, its up to us... I urge you to encourage your Representatives to support this bill!
