It could work, but you would need evidence that says that the USFG is passively expanding all social services by eliminating them. Also, once your aff gets out there, everyone will have politics DAs that link to it (politics will decimate your solvency). My aff for this year has a similar issue with passivity (I am not going to say what it is, but it is something that few people would associate with poverty), but it does not eliminate anything, and I have cut numerous cards to back up its topicality. I think that an irony aff would be interesting, but be prepared for an extensive T debate.
I think that a better route to go would be to do nothing and, therefore, do something. That way, at least, you can link the aff to a ton of Ks (everything from Deleuze to Agamben will link into a "do nothing" aff) and avoid politics altogether.
