Santorum: Obama ‘Sounds Like Two-Bit Dictator” on Welfare

The Obama administration made a quiet change to welfare rules last week. The adjustments include federal waivers for states relating to certain parts of the 1996 welfare-reform law.

The idea is to allow states to try new methods to get jobs for low-income individuals.

Republicans are outraged by the change, saying it would eviscerate the work requirements that are part of the seminal 1996 law.
