Tomi Lahren, the ever-outspoken political commentator for Fox News, issued a wakeup call to abusers of the American welfare system.
On her video series Final Thoughts, Lahren took welfare abusers to task, emphasizing what she believes is the best fix: “One, the best anti-poverty measure is still a job. And two: welfare is meant to be a second chance, not a way of life.”
“A second chance, not a way of life”
Then-President Bill Clinton said those “reasonable” words back in 1996 — but over 20 years later, they don’t sound much like today’s Democratic party talking points.
Lahren believes a robust workforce and a country full of workers with strong ethics are the best deterrents to welfare abuse. The assessment comes with a scathing indictment attached — a stark reminder that too many use the well-intentioned American welfare system as a means to live free of responsibility.
“Well, sorry, our country doesn’t operate like that. Maybe under crazy Bernie Sanders. But not with Donald J. Trump.,” she continued.
Her words echo the thoughts of conservative Americans all over the country — from the working people who lay their sweat and blood on the line only to subsidize the lifestyles of people who refuse to work, to the most prominent figures in the country — including the president himself, who has been pushing for welfare reform ever since the early days of his presidential election campaign.
Lahren pointed out the negative impact of welfare abuse on the economy, saying:
It’s ridiculous some Americans have to work their butts off to make a living, while others sit back and suck off the system. It’s wrong, and fundamentally un-American.
Welfare Dependence is a Democrat Power Play
According to Lahren, the blame for our nation’s overly welfare-dependant state lies squarely on the Democrats.
“Democrats want to give poorer Americans just enough of a handout to keep them coming back to the voting booth, because government dependence is a sure-fire way to maintain power,” Lahren stated.
The implication couldn’t be clearer — Democrats usher in, protect, and enforce legislation that keeps a certain segment of the nation dependant on them.
It’s all for political gain, according to Lahren. That’s why the financial burden on hard-working Americans is so heavy.
In keeping with the name of her video series, Lahren offered a final cutting take on stopping welfare abuse:
So let’s heed the advice of President Trump and yes, President Bill Clinton: Make America work again. Your Obamaphones just turned into alarm clocks. So get up, and get to work.
