An overwhelming majority of American adults believe there should be a work requirement for welfare recipients, according to a new poll. President Obama unilaterally relaxed these requirements last week.
Eighty-three percent of Americans said they favored the work requirements in a survey taken just days after The Heritage Foundation first exposed President Obama’s illegal efforts to gut the welfare-to-work reform law.
The survey suggests Americans continue to reject liberal efforts to reduce self-reliance and increase dependency on the government.
President Obama and his liberal allies, though, have continued to expand the size and scope of the federal government. President Obama even said recently proposed that private entrepreneurs derive their success from the work of others, including the government, rather from their own initiative.
Do you think Americans want to be dependent on the government?
