The ad also doesn't mention that the Republican Governors Association asked Congress for even broader welfare waivers in 2005, in a letter signed by 29 Republican governors, including Romney.

Not only did Romney lie about this...but he supported the exact policy that Obama is proposing when he was a governor of Mass.
The Obama campaign said Tuesday that as governor, Romney supported waivers far more liberal than those the Obama administration will allow.
"Some of the ideas advocated by Gov. Romney in 2005 undercut the central idea of welfare reform and not all of them would not be approved under the president’s plan,” Obama campaign policy director James Kvaal said on a conference call.
Kvaal also pointed out that Romney supported a program that gave free cars to welfare recipients, much to the chagrin of conservatives.

Nope. Not who you think. In the interest of bi-partisanship, this time it's Mitt Romney and Company who are engaging in spreading lies and inflaming class-warfare. The Administration was attempting to allow States to improve on welfare-funded employment services but the GOP spinmeisters have attempted to distort that plan into allegedly removing any requirement to work.

I'll save the trolls some work: liberals blah, blah, blah... marxists blah, blah, blah, the left blah, blah, blah...
