Today the Romney campaign and the RNC have released a new ad that highlights President Obama’s decision to remove the work requirements from the successful 1996 bipartisan welfare reform. Take a look.

As a candidate for the presidency, Barack Obama promoted the “dignity of work.” But fast forward four years and his administration has advertised to expand the welfare rolls, has sought to get working middle class families on welfare, and has now ripped the work requirement out of that bipartisan reform that the Republican Congress passed and President Bill Clinton signed into law. Obama used an executive order to do away with the work requirement, unilaterally undoing a law duly passed by Congress. The majority of Americans supported the welfare reform at the time it was passed, and still support it today. About 83% of Americans support the work requirement that President Obama unilaterally removed from the welfare reform.
