Damn that Fartbongo, letting states determine their own policies! WTF is his problem?

[Hatch] said the administration went around Congress by acting alone.

"This power grab by the Obama administration is not a constructive effort to encourage states to think creatively about how to get more people off of welfare and into productive jobs," Hatch said.


Loosening authority is a power grab? WTF?

His re-election campaign must be in deep shiat.

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, agreed states need better ways to get welfare recipients into "activities that promote self-sufficiency." Utah is one of the states seeking changes.

He said the administration went around Congress by acting alone.


Another instance in which the Republicans are for something until Obama agrees, at which point it is evil. Cf. DREAM Act (looking at you, Hatch).

This is welfare Reform! You will love it. You will love it like your life depends on it, unless it becomes Obama's policy. Then you will hate it. Now go in a corner and look outraged!

Not only that, but Politifact has told me that this kind of statement qualifies for Lie of the Year since the GOP budget would not end Medicare as we know it. WTF are they thinking?!

"This is a brazen and unwarranted unraveling of welfare reform.

WTF? It's no such thing. If I read it correctly, states have the option of completely sticking with the current system. However this now gives states the _option_ apply for a waiver to the status quo, and attempt a modified welfare model to see if they can do it better.

Or did I get that totally wrong?
 
2012-07-17 02:19:55 PM  
I don't get it. The feds are letting states modify the work-to-welfare program to try new things. No one is saying they HAVE to get rid of the work requirement.... if the state wants to keep the work requirement, they can, right?

Can someone explain what the outrage is? What am I missing?

Because Fartbama is a Democrat, and everyone knows Democrats hate work and working people, so what Zer0b0mb0 is doing here is letting the states exempt themselves from the "-to-work" requirement of "welfare-to-work".

Application: "We, the socialist proletariat of the People's State of Taxachussetts, declare our Great Leap Forward. Every non-working citizen will be offered a stipend 600% of the federal poverty line along with a $15/hr job reading the internet for any bad things people say about Dear Leader. This is our new welfare plan, and because we're Democrats who hate work, President Sheriff must accept this plan exactly as written. No take-backsies."

And every liberal Democrat state will submit a waiver, and of course UnPresident ChicagoCrony will grant every such desire. But not for red states. Moochelle's Husband will force Real Americans to work for the welfare they then send to the less American parts of Amercia.

The looking glass threw us here.

"The president's action is completely misdirected," Romney said. "Work is a dignified endeavor, and the linkage of work and welfare is essential to prevent welfare from becoming a way of life."

not around these parts, Mitt. this is part of the fundamental transformation of America that obama promised.
