Waiver of Onerous Work Requirements By Executive Order
Seriously? The Clinton era reform of "welfare as we know it" slashed away with the mighty Bamster's pen. The rationale? Gotta love this bureaucratese:
the department said the states may seek a waiver from the work component of the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families Program, in order to "test alternative and innovative strategies, policies and procedures that are designed to improve employment outcomes for needy families."We certainly can look forward to "alternative and innovative strategies" to improve employment outcomes if we take away the linkage between labor and compensation. Yeah, that should do it.
