In this new ad released this morning, Mitt Romney goes after Barack Obama for being to the left of President Bill Clinton on welfare, saying that the president has quietly announced a plan to gut welfare reform:
"In 1996, President Clinton and a bipartisan Congress helped end welfare as we know it by requiring work for welfare," a male voiceover says in the TV commercial. "But on July 12, President Obama quietly announced a plan to gut welfare reform by dropping work requirements."More >Meanwhile, our success-hating president sounds more like a communist czar than the president of a free-market country that was built on the American dream in which freedom includes the opportunity for prosperity and success, and an upward social mobility achieved through hard work: Obama Warns "Romney Hood" Will Steal From Poor to Give to Rich (He makes it sound as if by not wanting to pay more taxes you are taking from the poor ... as if it's the government's money. Not yours.)
"Under Obama's plan, you wouldn't have to work and wouldn't have to train for a job. They just send you your welfare check. And welfare to work goes back to being plain old welfare. Mitt Romney will restore the work requirement because it works."
