‘Romney launches new attack on Obama over welfare’
Come on Republicans. Find SOMEONE who at the very least can remember what they said and did.
Just being AGAINST anything Obama does IS NOT a ‘vision’ for America.
WOLFEBORO, N.H. —’Mitt Romney’s campaign is launching a new offensive on Tuesday accusing President Obama of “unilaterally dismantling” the 1990s bipartisan welfare reform’.

Except it was the same ‘attack’ he lamely hauled out 3 weeks ago only to have a letter he signed in 2005 saying he supported the same welfare waviers.
‘Mitt Romney Retroactively Opposes Welfare Waivers He Supported As Governor’
‘But in 2005, Romney’s signature appeared on a letter from the Republican Governor’s Association to congressional leadership. The letter states explicit support for welfare waivers’.
“The Senate bill provides states with the flexibility to manage their TANF programs and effectively serve low-income populations,” the letter said. “Increased waiver authority, allowable work activities, availability of partial work credit, and the ability to coordinate state programs are all important aspects of moving recipients from welfare to work.”
