Sorry, no etymologies found.
Proposed: Stabilize dollar, limit interest rates, end individual taxation, strive for 100% union membership 60% in four years, learnfare & workfare, control borders and stop giving expert worker visas to foreigners taking high-tech jobs away from citizens.
That suggestion never became law, but a host of milder workfare and learnfare proposals were enacted on the state level.
So that, for example, the proliferation of new social-engineering workfare and learnfare programs were the result of the efforts of governors like Tommy Thompson in Wisconsin and John Engler in Michigan, rather than built-in components of the federal bill.
The budget simply wipes out the learnfare program, the point of which was that if we're having to support able-bodied, non-working parents, at least we can keep it from turning multi-generational.
