I see in the UK they have launched a major reform of their welfare system. I don't know the specifics but seems to make a lot of sense so I guess no chance could implement here. Seems to involve less welfare for those able to work & turning down work but protecting those unable to work.

# Low paid workers to keep more of what they earn
# Replaces working tax credit, child tax credit, housing benefit, income support, jobseekers' allowance and income related allowances
# Benefits cut for up to three years if job offers refused
# People can move in and out of work without losing benefits
