ACTUALLY......Mitt Romney keeps jumping on things that he's out of touch on. He has a new attack on President Obama for waiving parts of the welfare-to-work law. Why can't Mitt remember that he backed a similar move as governor of Massachusetts. (maybe it's the same reason he keeps forgetting to release his tax information). President Obama's campaign circulated a letter, dated in 2005, that Romney signed together with 28 other Republican governors in support of Senate legislation that would have permitted increased waiver authority.
Romney's new ad claims Obama's solution to many of America's problems is
to rely on government. He said "We will end a culture of dependency and restore a culture of good, hard work". The White House press secretary called Romney's charges categorically false and "blatantly
dishonest". This administration's policy will strengthen the program by giving
states the opportunity to employ more effective ways to help people get off
welfare and into a job". Health and Human
Services Department allows states to ask for a waiver from the work requirement
of the welfare law in order to find different ways that would help
needy families find jobs. The purpose is to give states some flexibility in how they carry out the welfare
law. As many as 76 Republicans opposed the health department's decision and complained to the Health Secretary. She assured them that the states will have to move at lease 20% more people from welfare to work.
Romney's attack ad says "Obama guts welfare reform," while a voice says "Under Obama's plan, you wouldn't have to work and
wouldn't have to train for a job. They just send you your welfare check."
Obama campaign spokeswoman say's "The truth is that the President is giving states additional flexibility
only if they move more people from welfare to work - not fewer."
Mitt will do anything he can to change the subject from what are you hiding in those tax returns you won't release...........
