The Obama Administration has unconstitutionally re-legislated the Clinton 1996 Welfare Reform Law whose, “enormously successful” work requirement almost immediately resulted in “…cutting welfare rolls in half and pushing child poverty to historic lows. The work requirement can’t be waived …” but the Obama Administration apparently needs a dependent underclass that they can control, manipulate and use to stuff the ballot boxes.
To that end the Obama Administration has “quietly” perverted the intent of the Law by waiving its cornerstone “Work Requirement.”
“Lawmakers were already unhappy because in 2005, the Government Accountability Office found that several states were listing as work the following perverse work activities to meet the requirement:
- BED REST
- PERSONAL CARE
- MOTIVATIONAL BOOKS (Reading)
- SMOKING CESSATION
If you are becoming alarmed at this President’s Usurpation of Power, it’s time for you to take action before we either wind up as a functional Dictatorship or our institutions are so heavily damaged that we become a “Banana Republic”. Call your Senators and Representatives and DEMAND that hey take immediate action to estop this President from perpetrating and further destruction to the Laws of our Republic.
