According to CBSNEWS.COM,

(CBS News) ELK GROVE VILLAGE, Ill. – Mitt Romney on Tuesday accused President Obama of “taking the work requirement out of welfare,” part of an escalating line of attack that also included a TV ad and a conference call with top Romney campaign allies.

Speaking to about 200 people at a precision-parts manufacturer in suburban Chicago, Romney offered praise for former Democratic President Bill Clinton, who worked with a Republican Congress to enact welfare reform.


“They reformed welfare not just to save money, more importantly, they reformed welfare to encourage people to work,” Romney said, before pivoting to accuse Mr. Obama of trying to reverse the accomplishment. “That is wrong. If I’m president, I’ll put work back in welfare.”
