The Obama administration has decided to waive the work requirements under the 1996 welfare reform law, even though the law does not give the executive branch that right.

The law is such an inconvenient thing: The Obama administration has decided to waive the work requirements under the 1996 welfare reform law, even though the law does not give the executive branch that right.

    Why should anyone be surprised? Obama has shown repeatedly he has no regard or respect for any law he disagrees with. He will issue Executive Orders to make new laws when he can’t get it done legally & Constitutionally, and he’ll unilaterally choose NOT to enforce existing laws – like those regarding illegal Immigration, the DOMA, etc. At this point, I think he feels pretty much invulnerable. With the MSM totally in the tank for him, and the only remedy for this being Impeachemnt, he knows there’s about ZERO chance of that happening. With the Senate under Democrat control, an Impeachment charge voted up by the House would never result in his removal by trial in the Senate (requiring a 2/3 vote to remove). And of course, the Courts have shown they don’t have the will to stop this either. We’ll just have to wait till Nov, when hopefully enough voters recognize the utter lawlessness of this despicable Admin & throw him out…
