    It's interesting how he's decided to ignore enforcing DOMA, for example. Whatever you think of the law, it's the president's job to enforce it, not to determine for him/herself what the law is.

    That is quite true. Unfortunately we are stuck with a Marxist that thinks he should be dictator. He will use every method available to him to bend laws, ignore laws, create laws as he sees fit in the light of his Marxist upbringing and education.

    He has looked like a desperate, mud-slinging, Chicago dirtbag politician to me for years now. I caught on to that shit when he was campaigning against the other Democratic hopefuls in the Primary.

    Obama is a worthless Marxist. He has NO legitimate place in the government of the United States.

    I will be extremely pleased when he leaves the scene...by any means whatsoever!

    he didn't rewrite the welfare law, he did give the Republican Governors a waiver....

    GOV Romney IS ON RECORD for REQUESTING the waiver for the States himself, when he was Governor....just do a google on it....your candidate asked for this waiver....with room for the states to better utilize their own welfare programs.

    Here we go. It's whack-a-mole time again.

    It has been carefully explained in past topics that Congress wrote the ability for HHS to grant waivers into the law. So if HHS is granting waivers, that is not "Obama re-wrote the Welfare Reform Act". That is HHS following the law Congress wrote, EXACTLY.

    The Welfare Reform Act does not permit waivers for the work requirements of the law. This is clearly spelled out in Section 415. You can read the entire bill for yourself here: Bill Text - 104th Congress (1995-1996) - THOMAS (Library of Congress)

    A person still has to work a certain number of hours to qualify for work. There is no wiggle room for that.

    However, what HHS is doing is redefining what qualifies as "work". They have redefined "work" to include job training or classroom attendance. Some bongwater drinkers would have you believe it was redefined as watching TV at home.

    So the debate is not about Obama-as-Dictator. It is about what the definition of "work" is.

    Should job training count to get welfare? If a person is trying to enter a new career field because those construction jobs just aren't coming back, you going to withhold welfare from him while he attends college or job training to learn a new skill?
