This piece was also run in our local Sunday paper today. The amazing thing was it ran on page 3A, NOT the Opinion pages.

This "fact-checker" stuff is getting ridiculous. Even the "fact-checkers" are biased. And Obama DID end the work requirement for welfare - he did it by allowing states waivers for it. The political hacks are STILL insisting Mitt Romney's campaign is "lying" about it. Good grief.

I’ve heard about this so-called “lie” as well. So, if I understand what you’re saying, Obama didn’t directly end the work requirement for welfare, but he is allowing the states to decide for themselves? Is that what is going on?

No, states can't "decide for themselves." They are allowed to apply for a waiver and Sebelius at HHS decides. Check this Ann Coulter piece for some more explanation: http://townhall.com/columnists/anncoulter/2012/08/29/new_york_times_fact_checkers_bed_rest_is_work/page/full/
