Not really true.<quoted text>
Now, Obama [has] reversed the law Clinton signed, that required evidence that welfare recipients were actively seeking employment.
States can (but do not have to) apply for waivers, the justification being that they can implement their own programs for getting people off the welfare rolls.
That is different, imo significantly different, than 'Obama reversing a law', but admittedly nowhere near as sexy.
I'm not defending the policy, btw. Some of its critics question the legality, and I think they may be right. It goes to a bigger question of Presidents, and Obama is not by any stretch of the imagination the first, using Executive Orders to bypass laws passed by Congress.
If you're going to talk about this, a little more accuracy and a lot less spin would go a long way toward a worthwhile discussion.
You can let loose the defend the indefensible now...I know you'.re dying to do that.
