Has POTUS become the opposite of Robin Hood by completely revamping USA's social safety net? After cutting taxes for the rich, is he now targeting recipients of Medicaid, Food Stamps and Housing Assistance?

He is reportedly doing so through executive order, which has quietly flown under the radar that cuts the Departments of Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Agriculture, as well as directs other federal agencies to cut benefits.

After giving tax cuts to the wealthy, some who did not ask for it, he is seeking to completely revamp the country's social safety net, targeting recipients of Medicaid, food stamps and housing assistance.

He is doing so through a sweeping executive order that was quietly issued earlier in the week, which flew under the radar.

It calls on the Departments of Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Agriculture and other agencies across the federal government to adopt new rules requiring beneficiaries of a host of programs work or lose their benefits.

The order claims these programs have become too large and fail to move needy people out of government help.
