The bases are already decided. Romney has to go for indies to win, it’s that simple.
That said this welfare reform thing is a crock. Obama did not strip the work requirement. Reading is hard. And trust me my hate for Obama is quite real but this entire argument is b.s.
Im with you. TANF is in full effect. However, we do need another newer version of welfare reform. We need to change this crazy mentality. People need to get off their ass.
Well, Romney is out there making speeches and spreading that "crock" and "BS. Certainly not a good way to go after the Indy vote.
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."
Former Speaker Newt Gingrich today made the following statement on President Obamas dismantling of bipartisan welfare reforms:
As an architect of the historic and bipartisan 1996 welfare reform bill, I am disturbed and angered that the Obama administration is undoing the acts central concept of a welfare-to-work requirement. The hugely successful reform saved billions for taxpayers.
More importantly, it began to dismantle the culture of dependency that welfare had fostered: two out of three people on welfare went to work or went to school. The Presidents decision to cater to the radical left wing of his party and undo welfare reform is one more reason why it is critical to defeat him at the polls this November.
Last week the Obama White House admitted the removal of the requirement of work from welfare. They blamed republican governors for requesting that it be removed.
Reading is hard, yes. But I'm willing to read what you have that proves Romney is spewing "crock" and BS" about Obama and Welfare Reform.
It would indeed be the first thing Obama did NOT do wrong if you can provide the reading material here.
I do NOT trust you...you have only been here for 3 months. You must earn our trust....especially when you DEFEND OBAMA. Not a good start.
