Brownback was correct first time about welfare claim

It was refreshing when Gov. Sam Brownback appeared to acknowledge Wednesday that Mitt Romney is wrong in claiming that President Obama is dropping welfare work requirements. Though the claim has been thoroughly refuted by fact-checkers, Romney’s campaign has continued to make it. When asked by MSNBC if he agreed that the claim was false, Brownback said, “As far as I have seen, but I don’t know all of the basis to it.” But as news of his comments spread, Brownback’s spokeswoman said that Brownback “believes the Obama administration allowing states the ability to opt out of the very work requirements which have proven successful over the past 15 years is alarming.”
