Obama Waives Work Requirements to Expand Welfare Rolls

Those of us who work for a living are being crowded out by those who vote for a living. Again we see that this is by design:

House Republicans said Monday they were “disappointed” with the Obama administration’s plan to waive mandatory work requirements for welfare and questioned the legal grounds being used to make such changes.

“We are disappointed to see that the administration through this action and others seems intent not on helping to get Americans back to work,” said the letter signed by 76 House Republicans.

The one-page letter to Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius also states the administration is instead intent upon increasing Americans’ reliance on welfare and other government programs.

Every time an American gets a job, there is one more potential Republican. Every time an American gives up looking, a lifelong Democrat is born. This explains Obama’s economic policy in a nutshell, as well as the otherwise incomprehensible de facto repeal of the overwhelmingly successful welfare reform of the 1990s.

Under Obama’s rule, food stamp and disability rolls have been exploding. Already we are almost at the tipping point, where the takers outnumber the makers. To work for a living will be to accept the status of a slave who labors so that those who give the orders won’t have to.

As ever more become takers, this intolerably unjust system will quickly become unsustainable and collapse. No worries though; Big Government will be right there waiting to step in and provide.

The ultimate objective.

On a tip from Dr. 9.

    What’s next, ration ticket lines ?

    If the collapse happens government will be totally overwhelmed. This will cause all those takers and leeches to scurry frantically around looking to take from those of us that have been planning for the fall. Then the S@#$! will hit the fan. Granted I believe we will see blue helmets running around shortly after if not a full blown invasion from China.

    I doubt that will last very long… I never see the leech-class at the firing range. Remember that neighborhood across the bridge during Katrina? The one where locals came out, armed, and stopped the horde? The one that DIDN’T get ransacked?

  4. MissAnthropy says:

    It’s pretty clear that we’re at the point where the best course of action is to become a burden on the system yourself, rather than continuing to be one of its overtaxed enablers. What the Lefties have failed to understand is that once their Cloward-Piven strategy is successful in breaking down the existing order, it’s anybody’s game at that point.

  5. BostonPat says:

    I would point out that one additional aspect that I don’t think is getting much attention is that this would reduce the unemployment rate. (correct me if I’m wrong here) Obama is desperate to get re-elected, and that is unlikely to happen at 8.2% unemployment. If the welfare rolls stop looking, then unemployment goes down/makes Obama look better.

    The Bible couldn’t be clearer picture of how we should handle those who live to vote:

    “Our orders—backed up by the Master, Jesus—are to refuse to have anything to do with those among you who are lazy and refuse to work the way we taught you. Don’t permit them to freeload on the rest. We showed you how to pull your weight when we were with you, so get on with it. We didn’t sit around on our hands expecting others to take care of us. In fact, we worked our fingers to the bone, up half the night moonlighting so you wouldn’t be burdened with taking care of us. And it wasn’t because we didn’t have a right to your support; we did. We simply wanted to provide an example of diligence, hoping it would prove contagious.

    Don’t you remember the rule we had when we lived with you? “If you don’t work, you don’t eat.” And now we’re getting reports that a bunch of lazy good-for-nothings are taking advantage of you. This must not be tolerated. We command them to get to work immediately—no excuses, no arguments—and earn their own keep. Friends, don’t slack off in doing your duty.

    If anyone refuses to obey our clear command written in this letter, don’t let him get by with it. Point out such a person and refuse to subsidize his freeloading. Maybe then he’ll think twice.”

    Throw out Obama at the ballot box 2012.

    The Secret Service Admits That They Would Protect Putin Against The American People If He Were President. Then They Hang Up On Caller, Who Called To Tell The Secret Service That Obama’s Identity Documents Need To Be Investigated.
    The FBI Hangs Up And Blocks Calls When Caller Asks Them To Investigate Obama

    The prescient Holy Word. God’s crystal ball. A history book, a how-to book, and a roadmap. Never fails – never will.

    Thanks for the acumen. Completely forgot that section in 2 Thess. Have a day off – going there now. God bless.

  9. Kanaka Girl says:

    This is all intentional. It’s part of the Cloward and Pivin commie playbook that Obama lives by. Overload the system until it collapses. It is EXACTLY what he is doing. He’s fast tracking the plan because he’s afraid he’s not going to get another 4 years to finish us off.

    “Freedom is seldom destroyed all at once. More often it is eroded, bit by bit, until it is gone. This can happen so gradually that there is no sudden change that would alert people to the danger. By the time everybody realizes what has happened, it is too late, because their freedom is gone…” — Thomas Sowell

  11. mark says:

    Obama is following the Cloward Piven strategy book to a ‘T.’ The thing that really irks me is that I always thought that if a communist was finally able to destroy this country he would look like Khrushchev, not a mulatto Richard Simmons.

    Hes gotta go!

  13. MicahStone says:

    Various polls show that Americans favor the work requirement for welfare by OVER 80%. I hope they keep this issue – among many others – in mind on Nov 6th when they vote AGAINST those that oppose the overwhelming majority view.

  14. snuss says:

    The Republicans need to do more than become “disappointed”, they need to file suit, and block implementation of his “re-writing” of lawfully-passed legislation for every single overreach of Obama’s Executive Branch powers, and/or impeach him.
    A bunch of whining and crying RINOs doesn’t substitute for taking appropriate legal action to stop this.

    It’s the New Slavery…everything for free for the shiftless Negros while the working class toils under ever increasing tax burden to support them.

  16. IslandLifer says:

    You phony ass repubes! Signed letters LMAO!!!!

  17. AC says:

    Only the Second Amendment will keep your home and your family safe when the government goes broke and the welfare gravy traun shuts down. The police will be overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of the zombie like looter hordes. Those who have come to depend on the goverment looting others for their survival are not going to become self reliant overnight. Their entitlement instinct will bleed through as they decide to cut out the middleman who loots on their behalf.
