I would like to comment on Mike Zoril’s article “Obama did gut workfare rules.”
Mike conveniently left out that Robert Rector is a senior research fellow for the right wing think tank The Heritage Foundation. That information you left out does matter. Robert Rector also writes for the Wall Street Journal and the National Review, all right wing extremist publications.
In 1995, the Wall Street Journal called Rector the “leading guru” behind the Republicans’ position on welfare.
According to the fact checkers, President Obama did not waive work requirements, and they are still in place. Robert Rector didn’t like the truth from the fact checkers, so he decided to make up his own story. Like Judge Marilyn Milian from the Peoples Court would say, “I wouldn’t believe Robert Rector if his tongue came notarized.”
Rector recently declared that there’s no poverty in America, because the poor have things like video games, microwaves and window air conditioners. I guess to be poor according to the right, you have to live in a mud hut with a dirt floor and eat from garbage cans.
Nice try Mike Zoril. I wouldn’t believe you if your tongue came notarized either.
