Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) is a handful of votes away from implementing one of the most sweeping overhauls to a state welfare system in decades.
As President Trump and Republicans around the country begin contemplating entitlement reforms, Walker’s legislation could serve as a model, both in state capitals and in Congress.
“We are removing barriers to work, investing in job and skills training for the unemployed and underemployed, and expanding programs that incentivize work,” Walker said when he announced his Wisconsin Works for Everyone proposal. “We are making it easier for people to get a job and ensuring that everyone who wants a job can find one.”
