The principle of work requirements in welfare is based on common sense. It has nearly universal public support. The public supports aid to those who need it, but they do not want welfare to be a one-way handout. The key is reciprocity. If aid is given to able-bodied individuals, they should be required to take positive steps toward self-support in exchange for the assistance given. Polls show that close to 90 percent of Americans agree that “able-bodied adults that receive cash, food, housing, and medical assistance should be required to work or prepare for work as a condition of receiving those government benefits.” The current welfare system is very far from perfect, but it would not be improved by massive expansions of cash grants and the elimination of work requirements. The Biden plan would reduce work, increase dependence, and undermine marriage. It is anti-reform.
