President Trump signed an executive order on April 10 seeking to add work requirements for Americans who receive public assistance, such as Medicaid and food stamps [“Trump seeks new work requirements,” news, April 11]. We also learned this month that the Republican-led Congress intends to do little or no legislative work before the November elections. Maybe the president could sign another order adding work requirements to the oath of office that lawmakers take when they are sworn in.
