Glenn Grothman on Welfare & Poverty
The number of people on Food Stamps has gone from 17 million as recently as 2001 to 47 million today. The number of people on disability has risen from 5 million people to almost 9 million people in the last thirteen years, all while job safety has improved greatly.
The rush towards government reliance is resulting in the erosion of the American family, which will have severe, negative consequences for the next generation. Glenn has introduced legislation in Wisconsin to reform these programs, but again and again changes are blocked by federal laws and never-ending regulations that preempt reforms on the state level.
Congress needs a leader to stand up and fight. Glenn has consistently proven he is unafraid to tackle even the most formidable issues. He will fight to make reform of these government programs a top priority for Republicans.
