Instead of my usual bloated blog I herein lay out my proposal and its challenges, and let you the reader think through the details. Our task is to define the Welfare Reform Act of 2014. Instead of handing out money or debit cards we give chits to the needy, which are redeemable by private employers. You work for an employer, turn in your chits, the employer gives you cash, and the employer gets reimbursed for the chits by the government.
Instead of a handout, we give a paying job.
