Conservative Collins Votes to Overturn Another Obama Executive Order

Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Representative Doug Collins (R-GA) has voted in favor of legislation that would repeal an executive order signed by President Obama last July which gave authority to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to waive certain welfare work requirements. Sponsored by Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, Rep. Dave Camp (R-MI), the Preserving Work Requirements for Welfare Programs Act of 2013 would amend this abuse of executive power; and furthermore, reduce direct government spending by $61 million.

"I realize last July the President was more worried about his re-election bid in November than the hardworking taxpayers he actually represents, " said Collins. "However, misguided attempts to weaken welfare to work programs and increase our national debt are unacceptable under any circumstance. The Obama Administration has an obligation to the American people to ensure their economic prosperity, and completely dismantling and weakening the framework of a government program along with adding more to our debt is unwarranted."
