WASHINGTON, D.C. (www.incnow.tv) - House Republicans voted to stop waivers to welfare work requirements.
It’s a renewal of a political fight from the presidential campaign. The Obama administration allows waivers to states that show they can move welfare recipients into the workforce without the use of the law. Republicans claim the waivers are an attempt to gut the work requirement of the 1996 Welfare Reform Law.
The bill passed 246 to 181 along party lines, but was largely symbolic. Majority Leader Harry Reid has no plans to bring the bill to a vote in the Senate.
