LOL, Mr Chapman is either naive or stupid or both. The Obama administration is not interested in getting people to work. it undermines their goal of weakening the US. A strong middle class is an anathema to liberals and the left as it shows that we do not need government as much as they want us to need it.

He cannot raise his "base" UP, they don't want to work anyway in most cases. He is out to lower the standard of living for working people because it's not "fair" that they live better than some welfare clown. Most of the so called 1% he wants to tax into oblivion are whites, he knows if he taxed them as he wants to do, the money will only last a week. If he doesn't, he is once again too GD stupid to be president, so what is it, evil hatred of the very people who create the jobs OR his hatred of white people who create the jobs? After 20 years of listening to the "rev" wright, I opt for the latter.

Just like the public schools under the auspices of unions, so much easier to dumb down in teaching than to teach what must be learned.

Amazing how many were able to find a job or vocational school program to enter once taken off Welfare -many said it was the best thing that ever happened to them as they never knew anything else but a Welfare lifestyle passed down to them by their parents of dependency and the Liberals who wish to keep them on the plantation.

An empty belly is the world's best motivator.
The old line is that there's a simple way to know a politician is lying: His lips are moving. Odds are good that any lurid charge leveled against a candidate is largely fraudulent. So it was no surprise that when Mitt Romney accused Barack Obama of gutting welfare work requirements, fact checkers said his trousers were conspicuously aflame.

They have a point. Romney claims that under the new Obama policy, "You wouldn't have to work... They just send you your welfare check." In fact, no such changes have been made. As written, the policy merely gives states more leeway...
