The Trump administration moved Wednesday to reimpose work requirements for Americans on welfare, revoking an Obama-era policy that had urged states to apply for waivers exempting the poor from having to show they were either getting job training or looking for work.
Requiring work was a key part of the 1996 welfare reform law enacted by a GOP-led Congress and signed by then-President Bill Clinton, and Mr. Trump’s move restores the law as written.
Welfare reform was last implemented in the 1990's by a Republican congress led by Speaker Newt Gingrich.
It appears Trump is looking to replicate some of Speaker Gingrich's success.
