Not A Shocker: The Food Stamp President Loves Welfare, Too

In yet another attempt to seduce more Americans into dependence on government, the Obama Administration is waiving the work requirements for welfare.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius sent an “information memorandum” to states this afternoon exercising waiver authority under the Social Security Act for the provision that “parents and caretakers receiving assistance under the [Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF)] program engage in work activities.”

“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,” the memo said, adding that the goal of the waiver is “to allow states to test alternative and innovative strategies, policies, and procedures that are designed to improve employment outcomes for needy families.”

….“President Obama just tore up a basic foundation of the welfare contract,” said Republican Study Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio). “In exchange for taxpayer-funded TANF payments, the law calls on able-bodied adults to work, look for work, take classes, or undergo drug and alcohol counseling. It’s the tough love that gives people motivation to help themselves.”

Is there any President in American history, including Nixon, who has shown less
respect for the law? Have we ever had a President, including Carter, who made
such a show of being utterly indifferent about whether our tax dollars are well
spent? Has there ever been a man less qualified to handle the presidency than
the one who currently occupies the White House? Barack Obama isn’t just a bad
President; he is the single, worst President in the history of the United States.

    In many respects I’d hold Obama even lower than the most stellar despots in history! At least they were FAR more out-front in expressing their ideals and didn’t try to cloak them in the guise of “freedom”, “Democracy” and the like.

      I’m dying to see Bill Clinton’s reaction to this. While he was president, Clinton worked very, very hard to get his welfare reform bill passed and worked with republicans in the House and Senate. Now in his usual manner, Barak Hussein Obama the dictator currently occupying the White House decides to just dump everything Clinton worked so hard for.
      Come on Bill, let’s hear it or are you just going to let Obama walk all over you as he does everyone else he doesn’t agree with.

    This is totally what Obama wants. Total dependence on the Governent. He his a dictator . He is making a mockery of our government system and laws. He is destroying our constitution and on one is stopping him. He needs to be impeached immediately. We have such a corrupt senate starting with Harry Reed. We can’t get them out fast enough so that they do no more hard. Hilary is trying through the UN to get our guns! She is an unelected official. Hoe does she think she has the power to take our guns. She is as bad as Obama.

      I agree how corrupt most of the people in Washington are. However, the people are brainwashed. Even Nevada has over 11% unemployment, they re-elected him. What stupidity!!!
