Ontario Tories to unveil social assistance reforms on Nov. 22

In a statement on Wednesday, Children, Community and Social Services Minister Lisa Macleod said the government has spent 100 days carving out a plan to reform Ontario’s “disjointed patchwork” of programs.

“The previous government’s solution aimlessly threw money at the problem without any plan to help people get out of poverty,” she said. “The only measurable outcome has been trapping the very people the system is there to assist, in a deeper cycle of financial insecurity.”

Sweden’s Prime Minister wants to stop talking about immigration

Sweden’s Prime Minister, Stefan Löfven, has found a solution to his party’s crisis: Stop talking about immigration, Sweden’s Fria Tider reports.

Löfven’s Social Democrats collapse to historically low numbers while the Swedish Democrats are getting stronger in opinion polls.

Now the Prime Minister Stefan believes that he has found a solution: Change the debate from immigration to welfare, as the former question benefits Swedish Democrats.

And what group is predominately on welfare, you socialist moron?

Look at What’s Going to Happen to Sweden’s Fabled Welfare State

Sweden’s got a major supply and demand problem.

 By 2025, its entire workforce is expected to grow by 207,000 people—yet it needs more than that number just to staff its fabled welfare state. The worker shortfall could crimp services and raise labor costs, especially in a political environment less hospitable to immigration.
Less hospitable to immigration? Sweden?

Geert Wilders: Refugees prefer to come to big fat welfare states in Europe

Wilders says all real refugees deserve shelter, but he is surprised about how rich Middle Eastern countries don’t give it to them.

Instead the refugees, but also lots of non-refugees, come to Europe and ‘travel through five or six safe countries‘ to reach the continent’s ‘big fat welfare states’, he says.

Rich New Yorkers making plans to escape social welfare tax burden – now that they have to pay it themselves

From Robert Donachie at Daily Caller,

Wealthy New Yorkers can currently lower their federal taxable income by more than $100,000 through a provision of the tax code known as the State and Local Tax Deduction, or SALT. The average SALT deduction in the Manhattan area is at least $60,000.

The Republican bill will cap the deduction amount at $10,000, meaning wealthy New Yorkers who currently write off expensive real estate could face an extra six figures in taxable income.

President Donald Trump is expected to sign the bill into law by Christmas, which is why many hedge fund and private equity managers are seriously considering getting out of New York. More.

Reality check: In short, they were big supporters of every type of largesse the government could think up as long as someone else was paying. It’ll be a test of Trump’s presidency whether he does sign the bill for the cold shower these people need.

One could, of course, refer the Chardonnay socialists to the many Bible verses on the virtue of giving till it hurts of one’s own wealth. But somehow, we fear they will have a secularist meltdown at that point and renew their attacks on traditional religion instead.
