Email Your Representatives to Preserve Welfare Work Requirements
We support H.R. 890, a bill that will repeal the Obama administration’s July 12, 2012 memo allowing states to seek waivers for welfare work requirements. The House vote will appear on our scorecard.
The Obama administration should not have tried to circumvent the law by waiving the work requirements. The work requirement, established under the 1996 welfare reform law, has been hugely successful in helping people – especially children and female headed families – to get themselves out of poverty.
