Obama’s Imperial Presidency Dissolves Welfare Reform

Amongst the class warfare tax rhetoric, repeating (known) debunked stories about Bain and Romney, was this most unreported story on Friday . . .Obama just gutted the welfare reform act of 1996 by eliminating the work requirement. No debate or involvement of congress.

The Ruler Barack Hussien Kardashian Obama makes laws by himself, illegal immigration, welfare. And decides which law he doesn’t want to follow, AZ v United States.

This reform was very successful. TANF became the only welfare program (out of more than 70) that promoted greater self-reliance. It moved 2.8 million families off the welfare rolls and into jobs so that they were providing for themselves. Child poverty fell, and single-parent employment rose. Recipients were required to perform at least 20–30 hours per week of work or job preparation activities in exchange for the cash benefit.

Now, Obama’s HHS is claiming that it can waive those work requirements that are at the heart of the law, and without Congress’s consent.

Who knew there was a groundswell of opinion to define watching TV or sleeping as ‘work?’ Working hard to grow a population dependent on the government? Check. It also shows that Obama is not restrained by the law and, is no advocate for the poor. Taking steps to help dismantle a productive family is not helpful. It’s disgraceful. Screw the constitution.

  1. From the comments at the site you linked to:

    – Whether they’re working or not, most people on public aid, who are not disabled, are scammers. Public aid should be abolished except for the truly needy.

    – It’s all about more free stuff for blacks.

    – At least the terrorists hit us once on 9/11/2001 and the Japanese only hit us once at Pearl Harbor. Mr. Obama hits us every day!

    -Obama is more dangerous to our way of life than all the terrorists in the world. Hitler, Mao, et al pale in comparison to Obama.

    – My dad worked for New York State Employment Agency retiring in the late 70s. Many nights over dinner he would horrify us with stories of 3rd generation welfare slobs gaming the system, ripping off the taxpayers, and stigmatizing those who really needed the help.

    You link to sites that compare Obama to hitler, that believe all poor people are scamming the system. You should be ashamed to link to such drivel. It speaks to your nature, and that’s not good.
