    Which states have applied for a waiver, and what has the effect been? You've already been shown how this characterization is inaccurate according to HHS. The waiver requires a state to increase employment activities by at least 20%.

    You made a claim that states are acting as though the requirement is gone. Show evidence of this. Show me one state that has seen a decrease in work outcomes for welfare after implementing some change under this waiver.
    No state has had its waiver authority revoked.QED

    No, we don't. He broke no law. It was legally presented to him, and legally waived. It's stupid to call it a lawless regime.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Perhaps they realize the waivers are exercises in lawlessness.

    Really? Which court upheld the legality?

    Please explain ...
    sounds like you're suggesting that it's a good & accepted practice for folks in high elected office like, say, Barack Obama, to have our DOJ NOT enforce laws he kinda doesn't approve of because he was elected by half of we the people of the United States of America?

    Was that an accurate summary of your position?

    Why? Because the "lawless regime" won't prosecute itself?

    Don't watch rachel, so your bias is showing. The House is passing bogus bills that don't stand a chance of making it passed the President or sustain the veto. Passing highly partisan bills is not getting work done but grand standing.

    Um, no, that's not how the waivers work. A state has to apply for one with a specific plan in mind to be approved or not approved.
