Only 5 million people, 3 million of them children, now collect welfare; GOP House plan will mandate 40-hour outside work week to collect

This is not a bad plan if some child care plan was provided.
Democrats and liberal advocacy groups charge that the harsher work rules are not backed up by the funding to subsidize child care. Moreover, the larger budget bill's cuts to food stamps and Medicaid could add still more financial pressure as welfare recipients transition to the ranks of the working poor.
