Romney, Obama spar over welfare work requirements

Mitt Romney on Tuesday accused President Obama of dismantling the bipartisan welfare reform law Bill Clinton signed in 1996, contending that Obama has waived work requirements on people who receive government assistance.

“If I’m president, I’ll put work back in welfare,” Romney said in Elk Grove Village, Ill. ‘‘We will end the culture of dependency and restore a culture of good hard work.”
