Jo doesn’t want to end ALL social supports, just federal involvement in them. your taxes go farther at the state level than when they go all the way up to the federal level and trickle through bureaucratic layer after bureaucratic layer back to you. She wants to put the power back in the hands of the states because you know best for your state than someone across the Some girls wear pink real girls wear ink shirt from you, and there is far less waste that way.
