“Long History” Romney Ad Hits Obama For Gutting Welfare Reform
Recently the Obama administration gave waivers to states that stated those on welfare would not have to train for a job or even appear to be looking for a job, but that they would simply just receive their welfare check in the mail. Problem is, that’s true. That’s what happened. Obama has a long history of opposing work requirement. Here is the Romney ad:
In fact, some say that this giving out of waivers is illegal. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich says so.
“Section 407 is the key. It says no one, not the president, the Secretary of Health and Human Services, the governors, no one can waive the work requirement. And we wrote it that strongly because we so deeply distrusted the liberals who run many of the social welfare programs and thought they would in fact absolutely be in favor of waiving the requirements.”
We now see the president is clearly breaking the law. Yet, nothing is being said. We need a new direction. We need a new president.
