How Donald Trump Is Creating A Class War with the Welfare State
How Donald Trumps new welfare state will make life more difficult for the working poor.
A new study from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities finds that by 2022, the number of welfare recipients under 24 will double, to about 22.4 million.
That’s up from 15.4 billion in 2022.
The study estimates that the increase will occur over the next decade, meaning that, by 2022 at the latest, nearly 22 million fewer Americans will be able to afford the average monthly cost of a single child in their own household, and more than one in five children will be living in poverty.
The number of poor children in the U.S. will rise to about 17 million, and the number who are poor will grow to nearly 20 million.
The study projects that, with Trump’s new tax policy, those poor children will make up more than 50 percent of those living in “deep poverty,” a class of households that earn less than 100 percent of the federal poverty level.
For working poor Americans, the changes mean a lot.
Trumpcare will make the lives of poor people more difficult by making it more difficult to qualify for Medicaid, Medicaid’s health insurance program for the poor, and food stamps, which provide nutrition for people with disabilities.
The new law will also make it harder for working people to earn a living wage.
The Republican plan also increases taxes on middle-class Americans.
This is a bad deal for working families.
According to the Brookings Institution, more than 20 million Americans are on food stamps and more and more of them have incomes below 150 percent of poverty.
According the Center for American Progress, the poorest 20 percent of families receive $7,958 per person per year less in SNAP benefits than they did in 2014.
It’s not just the poor that will suffer under Trumpcare.
It’s the working and middle classes, too.
By 2022, more middle-income Americans will have a higher standard of living than they do today.
The Brookings report estimates that, at the median household income of $70,000, the median family would see a $1,000 increase in income over the same period.
By 2022, that income gap between the middle class and the poor will widen to nearly $3,000 per person.
And it’s not only the middle classes that will feel the pinch.
A recent study from Brookings shows that a larger share of middle-aged Americans will see their incomes decline in 2022 than they will in 2020.
But this is just the beginning.
A new report from the National Employment Law Project shows that, on average, the working age population will grow by 1.3 million people in 2022, an increase of roughly 10 million.
In 2022, fewer working Americans will need a job to make ends meet.
In 2020, the unemployment rate for workers aged 25-54 was 6.4 percent.
By 2026, it will be down to 4.5 percent.
There will be more people working fewer hours, which means more people with fewer jobs.
A study from Demos showed that the average working adult will work about 1,200 fewer hours in 2022 and 1,400 fewer hours the following year.
That means that in 2022 there will be an extra 12 million working adults working less hours, and an additional 4.4 to 5.3 percent of working adults will not have jobs at all.
That means fewer people with a job, fewer people making money, and fewer people earning a living.
If all this happens, the result will be a higher-than-expected number of people without jobs.
“These numbers are not just grim; they are terrifying,” said Kate Gee, senior policy analyst at Demos.
With more and better healthcare, fewer workers will need to worry about paying rent, heating bills, or paying their cellphone bills.
We will have fewer and fewer of us making ends meet.
“The study notes that, even if all of the new tax changes take effect in 2022 as expected, that means the working-age population will increase by roughly 14 million people over the following decade.
People with disabilities will also suffer the biggest effects.
According to the report, by 2026 the number expected to be a “significant disability”—a disability that requires the assistance of a person with a disability—will increase by 1 in 4 Americans.
By 2030, that number will be 1 in 6.
Another reason for the increase is that the federal government will spend more money on disability benefits.
So, more people will need more health care and will need it more often.
More people will be on Medicaid, which is an expansion of Medicaid.
States will have to find more ways to meet Medicaid’s eligibility requirements, which could include people receiving medical care in a nursing home, or living in assisted living facilities.
All of these changes will affect the poorest Americans the most.
