It’s long past time to kick the leeches to the curb.
We have been dealing with rampant welfare fraud for years and of course, under Barack Obama, the situation only got worse.
Those who refuse to work are getting absolutely everything, from food stamps to free insurance, all at the expense of the American taxpayer.
But President Donald Trump’s new budget is going to put a serious damper on the free lunches these moochers have been enjoying.
We already know the strides his administration has taken to combat the flood of illegal immigrants taking advantage of social welfare programs.
THAT is going to stop as well.
But as for the programs themselves, they’re filled with loopholes and every year, the country loses billions.
Now it’s time to save billions, America.
In what Trump is calling a “taxpayer-first budget,” we see major cuts to Medicaid and food stamps, as well as increases for national and border security.
White House budget director Mick Mulvaney, who helped create this new plan, says this effort should balance the budget by 2027.
As Mulvaney told Fox News:
“This is the first time that an administration has written a budget through the perspective of the people paying the taxes.”
One important note for our senior citizens: This new budget plan leaves Social Security and Medicare untouched, while Medicaid will get slashed by $800 billion and food stamps will lose $193 billion in funding.
According to Bloomberg, this results in a gargantuan $1.7 trillion cut for entitlement programs.

Perhaps Mulvaney’s most important comment is this:
“We are no longer going to measure compassion by the number of people on those programs.
We’re going to measure compassion by how many people we can get off those programs.”
If you’re on food stamps and you’re able-bodied, then we need you to go to work.”
Right here. We are DONE with losing countless billions simply because we have literally millions of people who cheat the system, just so they can continue to be lazy, unproductive leeches.
I hope they’ve enjoyed the free ride. Because it’s just about over.
