Cole Applauds Passage of Welfare Work Requirements Legislation


Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after the House passed H.J.Res. 118, a resolution to overturn the Obama administration's move to waive welfare work requirements.

"The Obama administration's unilateral action to waive welfare work requirements undermines a hugely effective bipartisan reform that has helped lower poverty and increase employment among struggling American families since 1996. Work requirements are essential to the success of assistance programs, and President Obama's decision to remove them without congressional approval is unacceptable. The millions of people struggling in this tough economy will be much better served by maintaining proven reforms than by returning to the failed policies of government dependency."
