Food Stamp Loophole
The Trump administration submitted a proposal to tighten bureaucracy surrounding the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) programs. Currently, anyone who receives TANF is automatically eligible for SNAP (otherwise known as food stamps). Normally, one needs to apply and show eligibility for each program they’re interested in benefiting from.
These are the kinds of loopholes in our massive welfare system that lead to so much waste.
Trump’s proposal would require states to verify an applicant’s income and also tighten work requirements for able-bodied people who receive SNAP food assistance. The USDA estimates that 3.1 million people will lose their eligibility if the proposal passes. This would save the country $9.4 billion over the next five years.
Trump truly is draining the swamp.
The New Fast-Track Deportation Process
A new rule that speeds up the deportation process for illegal immigrants and migrants just went into effect. The DHS can now immediately deport anyone who is here illegally and can’t prove that they have been in our country for at least two years. Previously, those same people would have had to show up in court before being deported (which can take months).

As expected, the ACLU has announced that they are going to challenge these changes. All they can do is whine about the president’s every move they don’t agree with.
New Lawsuit Filed Against the House Ways and Means Committee
President Trump has filed a lawsuit against the Democratic-led House Ways and Means Committee and the New York state attorney general in order to block the release of his tax returns. This lawsuit is in response to the committee’s lawsuit against the IRS and the Treasury Department to get Trump’s taxes released.
Trump's lawsuit seeking to block the Ways and Means Committee from getting his NY state tax returns has been assigned to Judge Trevor McFadden after Trump's lawyer noticed it as related to the committee's pending lawsuit against the IRS (see: https://t.co/py5HQadWv8) pic.twitter.com/pf8YruOHc9

Trump has defeated all attempts to invade his privacy because the law is on his side. Maybe Dems are the ones that should be investigated for wasting taxpayer’s money on frivolous and petty attacks. At the very least the entire Democratic party should be required to attend a few basic courses in economics to help them manage their rampant spending habits.
