Besides expressing contempt for Americans who live in poverty, Romney opposed the auto bailout that saved nearly a million American jobs, and he opposed measures to help homeowners avoid foreclosure.

But the Obama policies Romney opposed in 2008 & 2009 WORKED. The housing market is back, the auto industry is thriving, and unemployment is down.(Oh, yeah, and Osama bin Laden is still dead.)

Did it ever occur to any liberal that we cannot continue to give money away to perfectly able bodied people who are playing the system, while we borrow 43 cents of every dollar we spend? And you see nothing wrong with that idea? It is a disgrace. When you take money from people who work hard, and give it to the laziest among us that should be considered a crime. We have bred people to be shiftless, and it is accepable to them to go from one generation to the next useless. As long as they stay on the Democrat plantation.

People better think about going to work, and stop breeding like rabbits while they expect others to foot the bill. It is morning in America, and we will begin getting realistic about how much we will put up with regardng people who will not work.

Minnesota's frustrations with federal-welfare regulations are at the center of a campaign-trail fight over how much leeway Washington should give states to run the program. It and a handful of other states contend too much emphasis is being placed on documentation and not enough on whether recipients actually find jobs.

Officials in the human services department of Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton, a Democrat, informally asked the federal Department of Health and Human Services earlier this year if they could be judged by a new measure, such as the number of people the state helped become self-supporting. Two states with Republican governors—Nevada and Utah—also expressed interest in having more flexibility.

In July, the Obama administration offered all governors the chance to seek waivers.

That prompted an outcry from Republican lawmakers, who called the move a veiled attempt to weaken the program's goal of moving people off welfare. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney aired television ads accusing President Barack Obama of gutting the work requirement. The fight has deterred any state from formally seeking a waiver.

The Minnesota, Utah and Nevada are correct and Obama was going to give them that opportunity but being typical teabaggers, against ANYTHING Obama,
complained.

If a teabagger did the same thing, they would have applauded the measure Obama gets obstruction.

Mitt and Ann PumpkinHead Romney breed like rabbits you idiot.

That is the entire point of Mormon you idiot.

The Romneys paid no taxes for 10 years making them part of the 47% he spits on.

The face of welfare is MORMON.

Mormon polygamists pretend that they are a bunch of really friendly families of which only 1 has an adult man.

Those other 'families' of 'single' women with lots and lots and lots of children go on welfare from US.

This is Romney the Romini gypsy's genetic and cultural heritage: GRIFTING and LYING.

WASHINGTON – Using a Pakistani Internet Protocol and proxy server, a disposable credit card and a fake address,“Osama bin Laden” has successfully donated twice to Barack Obama’s presidential re-election campaign.

The “Bin Laden” donations, actually made by WND staff, included a listed occupation of “deceased terror chief” and a stated employer of “al-Qaida.”

“Bin Laden” is currently set up on the official campaign website to contribute more to Obama’s campaign. The name is also registered as a volunteer.

THIS PROVES OBAMA IS WILFULLY ACCEPTING FOREIGN DONATIONS ILLEGALLY.

we got enough poor people, we need more rich people.....Here's an idea, send out a note with their next check that gives them 90 days notice of the ending of the free money, and give them 3 choices.
1. get a job
2. move somewhere else
3. die from starvation, since the money is not coming.

My grandfather invented the "quick as hell employment plan." Give the idlers 90 days to find a job, open a business, or something, and cut off the funds. They will get a job quick as hell.
