obama and liberals are going nuts over this Romney ad, they are beside themselves with anger, first obama said ‘YOU DIDN’T BUILD THAT”, now he has quietly taken Work out of Welfare!!!
On July 12th, President Obama quietly announced a plan to gut welfare reform by dropping work requirements. Under Obama’s plan, you wouldn’t have to work and wouldn’t have to train for a job. They’d just send you your welfare check. And welfare-to-work goes back to being plain old welfare. Mitt Romney will restore the work requirement because it works.
ROMNEY: It was an extraordinary success. Back at that time, then Senator Obama was opposed to putting work together with welfare. Now he’s president, and just a few days ago he put that original intent in place. With a very careful executive action — he removed the requirement of work from welfare. It is wrong to make any change that would make America more of a nation of government dependency. We must restore, and I will restore, work into welfare.
It was more than just the work requirements that were taken out of this. Republican welfare reform that Clinton signed into law back in the nineties included other changes. There were stricter conditions for food stamp eligibility. There were reductions in immigrant welfare assistance. Both of those things have been taken out as well as the work requirements. It’s not just the work requirements that are gone. They really toughened up the law, and it worked. The welfare rolls were cut in half. That’s not insignificant. Welfare assistance rolls were cut by 50%. This got the regime just fit to be tied.
Gibbs: This advertisement is categorically false and it is blatantly dishonest. This administration’s policy will strengthen the program by giving states the opportunity to employ more effective ways to help people get off welfare and into a job. Under this policy, governors must commit that their proposals will move at least 20% more people, more people from welfare-to-work. This waiver policy that we’re discussing was specifically requested by two Republican governors, Governor Herbert of Utah and Governor Sandoval of Nevada.
RUSH: Now, they’re fit to be tied. But Obama did all this in secret. If this is such a wonderful thing, why didn’t he call a press conference, or at least, if not a press conference, a big event in the Rose Garden and signal this and tell everybody all these wonderful benefits and lay this off on these two Republican governors who wanted waivers from this. Why not do it, instead of doing it under the cover of darkness, on a weekend, where nobody could see it, and you announce it later that it’s done.
Obama doesn’t want to put people back to work. Obama wants to overwhelm this country with welfare recipients. That’s the fastest way to bring about the transformation that he wants.
Obama is doing everything he can to grow the government while making it look like he doesn’t want to and isn’t. He’s doing everything he can to create more and more dependency in the American people while he’s saying he wants to do the opposite.
So Romney’s just telling a simple truth, that Obama is on the side of the takers, a simple truth that Obama is against producers.
Libs are angrier about this ad than you and I are about their ad accusing Romney of killing the guy’s wife.
