MUST LISTEN – Rush: Obama lawlessly gutted the work requirement from welfare reform yesterday

Rush says that while the media is talking about Romney and Bain, Obama just used an executive order yesterday to gut the work requirement from the 1990’s welfare reform even though the law specifically protected the work requirement from being waived by HHS. In other words, there were a few things that could be waived by HHS, but this was not one of them. But that didn’t stop our Marxist-in-Chief from doing it anyway.

Rush explains it below:

    Zero definitely has a plan to destroy the fabric of this Country

    Can so many others be complicit in this plan ?

    WTF is going on?

    Don’t they realize what is happening?

    • actionsspeaklouder

      They don’t care.

  • WordsFailMe


    We were driving by the Obama Party Headquarters and there were a bunch of Democrats standing out front, some looked like they bathed, some looked like terrorists and the rest looked like homeless. My grand daughter demanded of me. indignantly, “Who are those people?”

    “They’re government pets, sweetie” I replied. She seemed satisfied.

    Farther down Martin Luther King Blvd, we passed the Food Stamp Office and the line of people was out the door and into the street. We had to slow down to let them cross safely in the middle of the block.

    “Just who the heck are these people?”

    “They’re government pets, sweetie.”

    “Why do you keep saying that? “ She demanded.

    “Well the government treats Democrats like pets, so that’s what I call them—government pets.”

    “You see, when you’re old enough to get a job, the government assigns one of these Democrats to you. As your income goes up, the government assigns more and more Democrat pets to you in line with how many you can afford. President Obama calls this, ‘Your fair share.’”

    “Now, as a pet owner, you have to feed them and take them to the doctor, just like we do for our dog, Blackie, and you have to clothe them, keep them warm, send them to school and make sure they have a warm place by the fire when they’re old. In return, they love you.”

    “Oh.” She looked a little puzzled.

    “But unlike regular, furry pets, you can’t have these ‘pets’ neutered. They continue to multiply so that your children will never be denied pets of their own.”

      Except these pets do not love us. Not at all.
      They think we are ‘rich’. They think we are racist.
      And there is no rescue group to take them off our hands.
      Even if we are allergic to them, they are ours forever.

      • WordsFailMe

        “And there is no rescue group to take them off our hands?” I thought that was what the NAASPCA was for. lol

    • williamm

      I feel offended that anyone would call a Democrat a pet. Unlike democrats, pets serve a purpose.

      • PFFV

        True… this is offensive to all sweet adorable pets every where. Democrats are more like that relative that always invites themselves to your party and spoils the good time for everyone.

        They may pass for Pet feces though 🙂

      • Nukeman60

        You could call them pet rocks. 🙂

      Obama made Clinton look a little bit like a monkey with this action.

  • sjmom

    Why doesn’t someone put out an ad about Obama’s Executive Orders? Many would be surprised, some would be shocked and others would not vote for him. Is the GOP this smart? Nah……………

    • LiveFreeOrDie2012

      The GOP is overwhelmed. Controlled chaos of Obama has made it impossible for GOP to highlight ALL of his calamities. There are so many that it is hard to piece it all together for the non-informed, average American.

      • Rshill7

        You’d think the most popular cable news network would at least make the attempt. You’d think the GOP would come unglued over things like this and call him out on it. All of the above have left the hard work to the crickets, and they aren’t even chirping.

        I guess we’ll just have to settle for the largest landslide in American history before we can get rid of this criminal element known as the Obama Administration.

        • p m

          Romney should make a change to his list of things to do on his first day in office. Number one should be (must be!) something like
          ‘I will return America to being a nation of laws, and ensure that those laws are respected from the White House down to your local elected representatives.’

          You can say it better me, rs.

          • Rshill7

            You said it just right.

          • Nukeman60

            I think Romney, on day one, should take time out to get on TV and list all the corrupt and illegal things Obama has done while in office (should take a couple of hours) and then ensure the public that he intends to reverse all of it and that it will never happen again, if he has anything to say about it.

            The euphoria of the nation would be so strong that the markets would skyrocket and people would be heartened to start rebuilding and investing in this economy again.

            • p m

              Totally agree. There’ll be hope in the world again. (And he’d better not let America down!)

            • miklyd

  • 911Infidel

    I know several people on Welfare. They tell me that you have to learn how to “play the system” in order to get on Welfare. They sit in their Sec 8 housing all day smoking crack or weed. They come out at night like nocturnal animals, smoke more crack and complain about people that tell them to get off their lazy a$$es and get a damn job.

    Oh but they love Obama-Mao. Yeah, he keeps giving them what they want…a free ride…with no responsibilities, or accountability… all at taxpayer expense.

    What a scam welfare is.

    • FutureOnePercent

      My mother-in-law works in the welfare office in Los Angeles County and she said about 95% of the people on the system are lying to qualify and if they get denied, they just keep appealing and by about the 2nd or 3rd time, they just stop fighting and approve them.

      She actively looks for fraud cases and does everything she can to cut people’s benefits in cases of fraud.

      The worst part is that the 5% of the time where someone actually needs help, most of them get denied because they are not lying to get around the rules.

      • warpmine

        Tellher she’s doing it wrong. Approve them all and watch sysytem crumble when the money is worthless. There won’t be any grocers out their that will take the fake money until finally they demand real value, silver or gold or it goes back on the shelf.

      • 911Infidel

        I’ve been inside Section 8 housing.95% of the people living there are overweight whiners who are healthy enough to work. We could save a ton of money, by putting these lazy cretins to work in order to pay for their benefits, which most don’t deserve in the first place and then ultimately forcing them off of the rolls.

        “For even when we were with you, we used to give you this order: if anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either. For we hear that some among you are leading an undisciplined life, doing no work at all, but acting like busybodies.” II Thes 3:10-11

  • Well it has been said this was going to be the ugliest campaign in history and it looks like it is shaping up that way.

  • Nukeman60

    I knew it two days ago, when Biden came out with his idiot comments, that Obama was going to try and slip something past us. Biden always does something like that the day before a sneaky move by Obama.

    As it turns out, his subterfuge and distractions (like the Friday afternoon dumps) don’t work anymore, because it’s not the Lame Stream Media watching. It’s us now and we’ll continue to keep a sharp eye out.

    • NYGino

      Nukeman, we’ve been talking about this strategy of Obama’s for quite a while now. Somebody ought to remind these traitors and lawbreakers that you can’t fool all of the people all of the time, OK, unless your a liberal and firmly stuck on the left and don’t have a brain of your own to figure things out. Oh, and unless you’re a lawbreaker and just simply don’t bother with laws.

      You could actually track the controversial comments and out and out stupid positions Jester Joe has taken and, sure enough, the Impostor in Chief will be breaking a law within a few days.

    The Cloward-Piven strategy strikes again.

    • nibblesyble

      I remember when Beck made us aware of the Cloward-Piven plan, I believed it, but so many thought he went nuts…I hope people are starting to wake up.

      • StandingGround

        “Nuts” and all, Beck has been wonderful at exposing those hiding in the shadows and the playbooks they follow. I am grateful to him for all the information and education he has given me personally.

        Not too fond of the vicious attacks he and his crew brought against Gingrich, etc., so I quit watching on a regular basis. But, I don’t have to throw out the cherry pie just because I ran into a pit…he’s still worth watching occasionally.

        • nibblesyble

          You hit exactly my friend, he has opened my eyes on a lot of things, but he was horrible to Newt and frankly, unfair. However, I agree with your clever cherry pie analogy. Not just for Beck, but for everyone whom I found wanting during the primary season, (except Ann Coulter!)I didn’t subscribe to his website after he left Fox, and I am glad of it as I can see the most important stuff he delivers via Scoop and other conservative sites.

          • StandingGround

            Yep, we’re on the same page. I would add Drudge to the Coulter list for me! Grrrhhh!!

      Please tell me when it is we should be voting for Ron Paul.

  • This can’t be something independent voters can think is a good thing… Romney needs to use this to attack Obama… Seize the opportunity ROMNEY!!

    • RINOMNEY won’t seize anything. He is just as inept and uninspiring as Obozo

  • Obama hates America. It is like he is on a race to inflict as much damage as he can before he is thrown out in Nov.

    • PFFV

      Rev. Wright taught him well… “Hate the white man and make it payback time!”

      I told everyone Obama was an evil Marxist before he was elected as a few others did as well. What did we know?… LMAO!

    Time to sound the alarm on this one. If the media won’t do it, I’ll do it myself.

  • Rshill7

    If it’s “lawless”, how can it stand?

    • keyesforpres

      I think those that voted for O should be the ones to pay it back.

      • PFFV

        I think people on welfare should NOT be allowed to vote!

        I think these elitist politicians should have to receive the same Socialized healthcare that ‘We the People’ are forced to have.

        No more lifetime benefits and lavish retirement pay either. They are rich when they get out of office (unlike when they went in, in most cases) so why do they need to live on the taxpayer’s backs? Cut them off! If they had to live on S.S. and ObamaCare they would fix it.

        • keyesforpres

          I’ve been saying that too. While on welfare you should not be allowed to vote.

          I also agree that politicians should not get retirement benefits. They should have to go back into the private sector like our Founders intended. They also should not be allowed to vote themselves raises. That should be on our ballot and for us to decide.

    • p m

      Good timing on that post, rs. Mark Levin is talking right now about the need for a senior WH staffer to delve into where all the money has gone, and to make sure all of 0zerocare is rooted out from all Gov. departments. He said that, in reference to what he found when the great RR first took office. (Boxes and boxes of Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals for distribution far and wide, among other things.) Like the rest of us here, ML is certain that we’ll be stunned by what is found – we just see or infer the tip of the iceberg right now. For myself, I want to know why all those hollow point mega-rounds were bought last year – and for which agencies…
      Hope RS will post it later.

  • hbnolikeee

    Rush is getting fooled. They are putting out distractions one after another and keeping focus off Duh Bumblers record. We all need to keep focus on the prize. This nonsense should be put on the shelf to fix after we take care of the real problem. Anyone really need me to point at what that is?

    The liberals are like pick pockets. The pick pocket jostles the mark and while that mark regains balance the thief picks the pocket. That is their way. We mustn’t have our focus shifted to the easily fixable issues. There’s not enough time to be distracted.

    Wake up. You too Rush. I’m surprised.

    • keyesforpres

      This still should be talked about. It just might be the issue that gets someone to not vote for him.

      • hbnolikeee

        what it will do is get the people that don’t work to indeed vote for him. hard to beat that free gov cheese.

        • keyesforpres

  • Wisewoman2

    An issue like this is why as an AA I detest Obama. As a child of the south who grew up having to work to help survive I think every able-bodied person should work. My 14 sisters and brothers and I had to work from the time we were 6 or 7 years old, sometimes in the cotton fields in 100 degree heat. While I do not wish that life on any one it did inspire us to study hard in school for a better future. Nearly all of us garduated college and became part of the middle class. Obama wants a dependent class so that he will always have readily available voters for the democrats. The man is an unmitigated disaster for the country.

    This Imposter will go to no lengths to get himself re-elected.

    I am on the verge of converting an extreme liberal to our side, folks. Day after day, I forward videos and links from websites like RS and actual proof of documents to my very liberal friend, and day after day, he gets a little closer to really seeing the truth. I’ve already converted two other former Obama supporters to the conservative side. It’s frustrating, hard work, but it’s worth it. If my friend, who is pro-abortion, atheist, liberal beyond belief, and a lifetime Democrat, can look at me and state that “Obama has to go”… there is hope in this world. I encourage every one of you to do that hard work. Fight for our country. Convert just one, and it’s one less moron in the voting booth choosing an absolute loser like Obama.

    • nibblesyble

  • As disturbing as Obama’s most recent of many illegal power-grabs is, I believe it is also a sign of desperation. The Statists are deeply afraid that Obama is going to lose in November, so they are trying to do as much damage as they can before it’s ‘too late’.

  • Just another step down the road to total socialism in this country. This is getting real bad and unless we end it in November we’re finished. We WILL be Greece by 2016 if Obama gets a second term. It must stop now, before it’s too late. Romney is our last hope. All conservatives may not like Romney, but he’s all we got to stop this madness. And Romney would be 100 times better than another Obama term. So we know what we have to do, get Romney elected. Make it happen, people. Vote.
