    THE END WELFARE WORK REQUIREMENT LIE.


    President Obama promotes welfare reform, GOP launches false attacks
    July 15, 2012
    President Obama is a champion of welfare-to-work programs. Recently, he gave states more of the tools they need to help move people from assistance to employment as quickly as possible. Republican governors have been asking for these new tools for years—and in 2005 Governor Romney himself requested the same kind of flexibility that the Obama administration provided.
    But rather than work with the President on welfare reform, Mitt Romney and his Republican allies are launching false attacks on the very changes they once supported. They are claiming that President Obama weakened the welfare-to-work requirements when the opposite is true.
    Ultimately, President Obama reached across the aisle and put in place a new policy that will make welfare to work stronger. By joining some in his party to falsely criticize a policy that empowers states to implement welfare reform, Romney has made it clear that he is far more interested in another political attack against the President than he is in actually finding solutions.

    Google fact check obama welfare work and you can go through dozens of sites factchecking this and finding the Romney claim untrue.

    Then you can come back and claim all of those sites are biased too.

    Of course you might want to consider the fact that the source of facts does not make the facts turn into falsehoods.

    If the Devil himself tells you 2 + 2 is 4, you'd be smart not to disagree with it, just because of the source.

    It stated in the law that no waivers could be given out. Now, instead of getting a job, a non English speaking welfare recipient could say he is learning English and that would be his work requirement. Fair? Hardly!

    This should cause people to seriously question what else Romney, his team, and Republicans in general might be lying about. I could start almost anywhere, but how about the truth about his taxes. Unlike the welfare to work claim, nobody can verify Romney's claims about his taxes because he refuses to release his returns. I wonder why.
