Growing Guts Cured by Growing Corporate Gluttony?

Deficit spending by the federal government is growing almost as fast as the waistline of average Americans according to recent data. While it is no secret that obesity rates in the country have been on the rise, new information reveals the obesity epidemic is reaching unprecedented proportions. Nearly two-thirds of adults and one-third of children are considered overweight or obese, and that number is projected to rise dramatically in the near future.

Cronyism is Killing America

The growth of America’s government may soon be outpaced by growth of the average waistline new indicators reveal. Rates of obesity have been increasing over the past several decades, but are now reaching some incredible levels. Currently it's estimated that well over one-third of adults are classified as obese and nearly two-thirds are classified as overweight. Perhaps more distressing is the recent discovery that one in six children are suffering from obesity.

Let's Make Real Progress on Welfare Reform

The recent passage of the American Health Care Act through the House of Representatives, though contentious, proves one point definitively: this government is fully capable of making progress when it puts its mind to it.

The Unsustainability of SNAP

The Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) program which is within the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) began originally as a way to supplement food that had been deemed overproduced in the late 1930s. It lasted several years until it was deemed no longer necessary because overproduced goods were being marketed more efficiently while unemployment was decreasing.

When Welfare Doesn't Work, What Does?

America’s welfare system is not working. The War on Poverty has failed miserably , and few in Congress have even broached the topic of serious welfare reforms. Members of the House Freedom Caucus have led the way in the this Congress, but, aside from their efforts at real conservative reform, there is little traction for those seeking to make welfare sustainable. Luckily for Americans, Congress doesn’t control their fate, they do.

The Solution To Welfare Woes is More Federalism

As Congress considers welfare reform many are quick to point out the political roadblocks facing actual progress. Although the crumbling welfare apparatus has become a focal point in recent congressional discourse due to the efforts of House conservatives within the Freedom Caucus it will still be an uphill fight to get lasting reforms pushed through at the federal level.

When Considering Welfare Reform, Consider a Different Model

The federal welfare apparatus has bloomed into disastrous menagerie of nearly one hundred programs. Many in Congress are seeking a solution to the welfare leviathan’s imminent collapse.

Support the Welfare Reform and Upward Mobility Act, S. 1290 and H.R. 2832

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to call your senators and representative and ask them to cosponsor the Welfare Reform and Upward Mobility Act, S. 1290 and H.R. 2832, sponsored by Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio). This bill would significantly reform welfare and get more families back to work by promoting accountability, reducing spending, and decentralizing control by returning it to the states.
