Should the Name of Welfare Be Changed For Support?
A representative from Texas thinks changing the name of welfare could help increase public support for expanding welfare benefits, according to personaliberty.com.
Rep. Shelia Jackson Lee (D-Texas) argues that Medicaid, Medicare and Obamacare shouldn’t be looked out as handouts because many people who rely on the benefits are attempting to better their situation.
She went on to argue that maybe the name should be changed to something such as a “transitional living fund.”
Lee said the change would show an outreach to people who are “chronically unemployed.”
