Fox News contributor Deneen Borelli discussed the Trump administration’s change in food stamp requirements on Fox Business Network’s “Making Money,” with host Charles Payne and liberal commentator and attorney Danielle McLaughlin.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the federal rule change “lays the groundwork for the expectation that able-bodied Americans re-enter the workforce” and to “increase employment.”
The new work requirements would curb states’ control of food stamps.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture on Wednesday approved a rule change, first proposed in February, that limits the ability of states to grant work waivers for single, able-bodied adults enrolled in the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly referred to as food stamps.
Borelli said, “We have not had a job environment like we have today with record-low unemployment across the spectrum” and also noted there are “more jobs than people to fill them so I think this is a good move.”
The rollback in taxes and regulatory reform under President Trump helped create a pro-growth economic environment that is spurring job growth, dropping the unemployment rate in the U.S. to 50-year lows.
