State of Utah Archives: on Welfare & Poverty


Dan Liljenquist: Administer welfare programs at a state level

Dan is running ON entitlement reform, not away from it. Medicaid and other welfare programs should be pushed back to the states. If we are going to have a welfare program at all, it should administered at a state level. Unlike Medicaid, which is a pure entitlement program, Social Security and Medicare are programs that must be reformed while honoring our commitments.
