Romney's a scumbag liar.
I trust anything that comes out of Newt Gingrich's maw about as much as I trust what comes out of Obama, which is to say not at all. Especially since Newt had his ass handed to him by Romney.
Basically, to collect welfare for a family, every work eligible person in that family must work an average of 30 hours a week.
If the state cuts its welfare load, that requirement can drop to as low as 20 hours.
What counts as "work"?
As you can see, looking for a job only nets a 6 week credit for the whole year.
So even if you bust your ass looking for a job, you still won't earn enough work hours to get welfare unless you find other work, too. And since the job market is depressed, it is more difficult to meet the total work requirements.
Thus, some states may apply for waivers during this period of high unemployment and stiff job headwinds.
Democrats are allergic to the truth.
That's why they could never produce the anonymous source that John McCain had an affair with an aide. Or, the anonymous source that said his adopted child was really his own love child with a black woman.
Neither of those things have to do with this issue though. But you should keep bringing up irrelevant shit. It makes your points WAY more salient.
Let's let the man who reformed welfare in the 90s speak on the issue shall we?

The black love child was invented by the Bush team, dude. In 2000. Specially created to alienate South Carolina voters from McCain so Bush could win.
I never heard of the affair rumor.
We agree. Romney is a liar. Considering two of the five states that applied for waivers have GOP governors, and in no case did they ask to do away with the work requirement. They wanted a little flexibility in dealing with mental illness and substance abuse to make the welfare recipient job eligible.
You fucking liar. That lie was sold by the Rove team in South Carolina, and promoted by rightwing nut, Ted Sampley, who also wrote a diatribe claiming McCain was the Manchurian candidate, in the 2000 primary. Rove even gave Ted Sampley the podium at a campaign event there.
BTW, McCain was ahead in the SC polls before that Rove dirty trick, and wound up losing to Bush.
