    The Obama administration said that the change was a response to requests by governors for more flexibility in administering the program and that it was not intended to "waive or dismantle" the work requirement.[3] But in some key respects, the HHS waiver is inconsistent with this statement. The language itself signals the agency's willingness to water down the program's current focus on work participation rates as the primary test of each state's compliance with the goals of welfare reform.

    No, it signals the agency's willingness to accede to the state's requests.

    I thought all you RWNJ's were FOR state's rights. If the federal government runs roughshod over the states, you complain. If the federal government empowers the states, you complain about that too.

    What gives? (Lemme guess.....If Obama's name can somehow be attached to it, it CAN'T be right.....right?)

    When your finished attacking the source, give the content a shot. I'd venture a guess that they are more reputable than a guy named OohPooPahDoo.


    Welfare reformThe Manhattan Institute was one of the key institutions that successfully pressed for reform of the welfare system in the mid-1990s. Charles Murray's Losing Ground: American Social Policy 1950-1980 (1984) was one of the first books to argue that the welfare state had fostered a culture and cycle of dependency that was to the detriment of both welfare recipients and the United States as a whole.

    Myron Magnet's The Dream and the Nightmare: The Sixties' Legacy to the Underclass (1993) laid much of the intellectual foundation for the welfare reform movement, and was cited by President George W. Bush as the book that has influenced his thinking the most after the Bible.
