    When the Obama Administration announced it was unconstitutionally gutting the 1996 welfare reform law’s work requirements, it was yet another moment of Obama abusing power and usurping the Constitution. This landmark conservative policy helped three million Americans achieve independence from government.

    Today, the House voted 250-164 to reject this illegal overreach. In fact, 19 Democrats voted against Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi and for personal responsibility!

    This welfare move was requested by Republican governors.

    Score one for democracy in action. This Dictator-N-Chief thinks he can circumvent Congress and the United States Constitution.. He's sorely mistaken and I think everyone is beyond tired of his shit..


    Romney/Ryan 2012 for Constitutional principle.

    REad the directive for yourself and you decide

    PURPOSE:

    HHS is encouraging states to consider new, more effective ways to meet the goals of TANF, particularly helping parents successfully prepare for, find, and retain employment. Therefore, HHS is issuing this information memorandum to notify states of the Secretary’s willingness to exercise her waiver authority under section 1115 of the Social Security Act to allow states to test alternative and innovative strategies, policies, and procedures that are designed to improve employment outcomes for needy families.

    Regardless of whether you agree with the principle or not, the fact remains that Obama seeks to modify a law passed by congress without congress's approval.

    If Harry Reid were anything but a traitor and a stupid bastard, he'd have Obama up for impeachment.

    your last link is not a fact checker...

    your first link gave bill clinton, reluctantly, 2 Pinocchio

    HOWEVER it resoundingly gave ROMNEY 4 Pinocchios.... an outright LIE.

    Guess how many citizens are on tanf Welfare? JUST 1.8 million....that's it.... Not 47 million not 100 million people as your side touts, but 1.8 million out of 310 million...
