Double Standard

VP Joe Biden: ‘Buy a Shotgun!: GOOD

Why welfare, food stamps, and other programs often discourage work

Food stamps, welfare, Medicaid and other tax and transfer systems can sometimes penalize people for earning that extra dollar of income

Economists and many policymakers generally agree that our tax and transfer systems should promote opportunity, work, saving, and education rather than consumption. The problem is these programs often penalize people for earning that extra dollar of income. Rather than promoting work and savings, these implicit taxes punish such otherwise positive behavior.

These penalties occur in TANF (formerly welfare), SNAP (formerly Food Stamps), Medicaid, the new health exchange subsidy, Pell grants, student loans, and unemployment compensation. The tax code also is loaded with disincentives to work, save, and study.

County panel backs allowing pension overpayments to continue

The Milwaukee County Board’s finance committee on Thursday decided against reducing future pension overpayments amounting to an estimated $10.3 million to 217 current and future retirees.

The committee instead unanimously recommended approval of a Pension Board proposal to retroactively change county ordinances that would result in keeping the improperly high payments flowing to the group. The vote was 8-0 to adopt the Pension Board’s proposal.

The committee rejected a counterproposal by County Executive Chris Abele to reduce future pension overpayments to the group.

This month, Abele stepped back from his April plans to recover as much as $26 million in past overpayments and interest and offered what he described as a compromise. The recovery effort was approved by the County Board in 2007 but never implemented.

Scott and Tonette Walker’s Frosted Christmas Pecans

Scott loves to host our friends at Christmas.

Every year, our home is filled with laughter and love when we invite friends from our church, our relatives, Scott’s staff, classmates of Matt and Alex, friends of mine from my work at the Lung Association, and others for gatherings during the weeks surrounding Christmas. Scott always starts our parties with a prayer giving thanks and we end our gatherings together singing our favorite Christmas carols. It’s really special, especially with Scott’s busy schedule, to have the the chance to spend time around the holiday with so many people we love.

Another annual tradition in our family is helping Scott make his “frosted Christmas pecans.” Scott seems to make more and more pecans every year – we are running out of counter space and mixing bowls to make them all! Everyone looks forward to his pecans - even our Milwaukee County radio stations get excited when Scott delivers them around town.

I know Scott wishes he could give his pecans to EVERYONE this Christmas, so I thought I’d help him out with the next best thing – sharing our family recipe with you (see below)! I hope your family enjoys this Christmas treat as much as ours does.

Thank you again, and Merry Christmas!

Sincerely,
Tonette Walker

Scott and Tonette Walker’s Frosted Christmas Pecans
