‘Partisan Disgrace’: Obama Admin Quietly Rewrites Welfare Reform Law

In move that went largely “unnoticed” by the mainstream media, the Obama administration on Thursday released an “official policy directive” that essentially rewrites the landmark welfare reform law of 1996, the Washington Examiner’s Byron York reports.

“The directive,” York explains, “allows the Department of Health and Human Services to waive the work requirement at the heart of welfare reform.”

An “Information Memorandum” released by the Department of Health and Human Services’ states:

[The] HHS has authority to waive compliance with this 402 requirement and authorize a state to test approaches and methods other than those set forth in section 407, including definitions of work activities and engagement, specified limitations, verification procedures, and the calculation of participation rates.

The memo, as the Daily Caller’s Caroline May notes, argues that by waiving the so-called “work requirements,” the feds are encouraging “states to consider new, more effective ways to meet the goals of TANF, particularly helping parents successfully prepare for, find, and retain employment.”

    Really? So now He can just “rewrite” law. Congress can just whine about it. Well heck I guess next, he’ll just “rewrite” the BILL OF RIGHTS. He’s about done with THE Constitution.

    Cousin, didst thy not know the first dictator was a grand character of vision with a deep Christian morality? That he paved the way for more enlightenment, paying with his own life to further freedoms cause. In the process teaching those wicked rebels a lesson.

    What we see now is a furtherance of Comrade Karl’s ultimate vision, that mankind, through collective sacrifice, will enter a new age. An age where personal freedom and liberty are sacrificed for the greater collective. Belief in God is abolished. All nations and people will sing the Internationale with joyous hearts and closed minds.

    You two subversives are being monitored, you will be sent for political reeducation. You have been warned ;0

    Yes Cousin, when I was a child, I spake as a child, I thought as a child, I understood as a child, but when I became a man I put away childish things. I will not submit, I will not obey. And I will not go quietly into that dark night.
