How Much Every Welfare Cutting List Have Influenced the Thousands of FamilyApr 11, 2013

The government's reform of welfare started in 2010. But the six come into effect on or after 1 April include some of the biggest and most high profile cuts, such as the Bedroom Tax, the household welfare cap, and the abolition of council tax benefit. These new reforms will take £2.3bn a year out of the pockets of some of Britain's poorest households in 2013-14 alone.

The list of 42 benefit changes, compiled by the charity Child Poverty Action Group (CPAG), gives a clear sense of the vast scale and complexity of the Coalition's welfare reform program, which is aimed at saving £18bn a year from the social security budget by 2015.

Let me be clear: the proposed cap of £26,000 a year is the equivalent of a salary of £35,000 – and it is simply wrong that people who don't work can get substantially more money from the state than many working people earn.

Families already struggling with rising living costs face another body blow as a potentially devastating package of benefit cuts is introduced this month which will grab desperately needed financial help away from families and suck billions of pounds of spending power out of local businesses and communities.

Opponent claims that our reforms will push people into poverty amount to nothing more than scaremongering of the worst kind. Universal credit will improve the lives of some of the poorest families and make three million people better off. It will restore to our welfare state the values upon which it was built. Universal credit is at the heart of the changes we are making. It will replace the complex myriad of means-tested benefits. It will be simpler for people to navigate and harder for people to defraud. Most important, it will make work pay.

Finally saw the government social welfare costs spiral in economic growth. It is low-income taxpayers must meet this huge cost. Department minister, the government when it comes to the edge of the welfare system and withdraw from radical thinking hard up.

The rebalancing of the welfare state, we must find out who can work to work, and a life in welfare can't more attractive than the work. This is why we are introducing welfare cap. The British public don't believe in welfare should get higher income - in some cases they get twice as much, the average family income than hardworking family.

The list of six does not include another major reform beginning this year - replacement of disability living allowance with personal independence payments - which will by 2016 save an estimated £1bn a year as an estimated 500,000 disabled people have their claim removed.

We correctly to cost around £50 billion a year for people with disabilities and their services, but our welfare reforms designed to ensure that we spend billions of dollars to more targeted support to those who need it most. That is why we are replacing outdated disability living allowance payment with new personal independence, in order to better reflect today's understanding of the disability - especially for the mental health status.

No matter what the opposition said, Our plan has been testing the new system in a safe and controlled way to ensure we get it right to start the promotion in October. Listing 6 does not include another major reform since the beginning of the year - the replacement of disability living allowance and individual pay - this will save estimated £1 billion a year by 2016, estimates there are 500000 people with disabilities have their request.

The work and pensions secretary Iain Duncan Smith claims that 2.6m households will have higher entitlements as a result of universal credit, 1.3m of them by over £25 a week. He claims it will lift 350,000 children out of poverty, and that no one will be worse off under the new system. He says:

But campaigners some organisations will be lost: about 450000 disabled according to the rights of persons with disabilities; In 400000 Britain's poorest families, especially in single-parent family's children, worsen by 2015, according to the chartered institute of housing.
