Work Requirements for Welfare Aren’t ‘Wacko’

Are work requirements for welfare recipients “wacko”? That’s what President Biden said on April 19 in reaction to House Republicans’ debt-ceiling proposal, which included this policy for Medicaid and food stamps. The House passed a bill on April 26 that would require able-bodied adults without children to work, train or volunteer at least part time as a condition of receiving taxpayer support. As my home state of Arkansas proves, this policy works wonders for Medicaid recipients and taxpayers alike.
