Memo to GOP: This is an issue that resonates with all voters and cuts to the core of the food stamp presidency.  Last week, Obama announced that he would issue waivers suspending the requirement that recipients of cash welfare be working or actively looking for a job.  Rasmussen reports that only 7% of the public supports Obama, while 83% support the bipartisan welfare reform work requirements.  This is something that Republicans must push to the brink.  They should immediately pass it in the House and force a vote in the Senate, making Democrats go on record as standing with Obama or with the “83 percent.”
