Words have consequences. It is not welfare. It is armed robbery to take money from some at gunpoint and give it to others.

It's also armed robbery to take money from some at gunpoint to give it to "businessmen" who will compensate the robber with campaign donations.

All of it is unconstitutional and as corrupt as it can be....throw them all out this time around and only vote for someone who WILL stop the lobbiests, not LIE about it like the zero did and then hire a bunch of them.
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...
